    I tried the email route months ago and got nowhere. Then others suggested that I try to track him down on other Forums. As if! I recall that at one time Jon tried to contact him and got nowhere, too. I found the alternative (read: style) with which I am happy and satisfied and I didn't have to get on my knees so they'd take my money. I also supported the Forum by buying a P-7 clip from the Store. That's my first go-to place for things EDC.

    When a rant goes on to long or the noise level gets to high I employ the ignore user option to restore peace and quiet with a few clicks. Just lately the list has been getting a bit lengthy.

    Putting aside how any of us might feel about clones, counterfeits, knock-offs etc, I hope we can agree that good forum etiquette means we support those who themselves support and participate on the forum: members displaying craftsman and manufacturer badges. By that, don't mean have to buy their products (though that would be nice), but at the least, simply refraining from "advertising" on EDCF for people or companies who encroach (read: copy) on their products.

    Yeah, I totally get that ^^
    That gets personal.

    I guess someone else was saying why would it matter to someone so much so, that they would attack, criticize, or humiliate another forum member, if that forum member himself (or herself) had no real affiliation to the maker, company, etc. I'm not saying it's gone that far, but I'm surprised at how passionate this issue has become.

    I'm guessing most people on one side are saying this -if it were a forum craftsman-we'd all agree. That's definitely wrong, and no arguments.Those on the other side of the fence are saying, well, it's not-so it doesn't really matter, especially since they're evidently not being sold (at least the case with Munroe).

    Either way, I'd say for either side-it really doesn't matter if it's right or wrong...I could almost guarantee a more rewarding feeling when buying the original product, even if that means some compromising in other ways.

    However, for those who would never spend that amount of money on a real product, I guess it would never matter, and I could see they'd rather have something than nothing-but then they should try their hands at a simple alternative diy/mod instead...even more rewarding and usually a fraction of the cost ;)

    That is pretty sad.... But buyers set the price for items, if people wouldn't buy them at stupid prices we wouldn't have issues.

    Yeah, he's selling a purple UV Wrunt for almost twice what I paid on PPT. It's been sitting there for quite some time. I kept thinking about his pricing when I started carrying mine today.

    Yeah, I like the direct score from PPT. Anyone with enough $$ can get one on the secondary markets.
