It appears that repeating what was originally written would be useful. Here it is:

Jan: "Some people will direct you to certain sites, and you may be surprised to find out there is a referral fee on these sites as well."

Brad: "There are consumers being paid for their advice on where to shop. What Jan meant by keep an open mind, is that there are certain people on here with an agenda that want to direct traffic for a reason. The reason, is MONEY.
So some of the consumer advice is not pure but paid for."

More recently Brad wrote "By stating that some dealers offer consumers referral fees I am on trial now? It does exist and I do know it."

Brad, which consumers are being paid to direct traffic? Do you have personal knowledge that any consumer here has received a payment or other benefit as a result of mentioning a specific vendor?

Have you or Jan or your business ever offered any discounts, money payments or any other benefit as a result of or to obtain a referral from a consumer here?

Rockdoc As you saw in the attacks on me from Brad, he couldn't or wouldn't back up one accusation with any facts.

I see you invited yourself to the party.

What accusations are you talking about ?

If you want to re-hash this I`m ready

Can we hash this topic before we rehash Rockdoc's? I'm sure Rockdoc would agree.

Against the Law?
Quote this post and reply to it Post#105 @ 02-27-01 , 02:00 AM


is is against the law to do this referal thing. I understand the whole rest of it, like somebody telling you to go shop there b/c they had a great exp. but isn't that the same as say...

promising an aquaintance a gift if they'll help you out and set you up with someone. I can't believe this is still happening, didn't this thing start up like last week.

Brian,

It wouldn't be illegal. It would be inappropriate. See the actions of the brother of Clinton's wife for an example. Wasn't proper for him not to disclose being paid.

My gelding comment about Brad was exactly that, an attempt to bring on this "avalanche" to which you referred.

It has not happened.


It also was a a terse response expressing my dissatisfaction with Brad's usual tack.

Often, I am on the "other side of the aisle" from Ice and Jim Schultz too, but I like the way they lay everything out on the table. I also like they way they will apologize on that rare occasion they are wrong. Brad likes to stir the pot, but won't serve the stew (mixing metaphor?).

Fact is, I don't see what's such a big deal about "exposing" those on the take.

It's not you is it , AGBF?

Well, actually it is, R/A.

And, by the way (speaking of those who apologize when they are wrong-not that *I* ever am!!- ), *I* apologize for dragging into this thread an old and resolved "dispute" (of a few moments duration) between us. That is just stupid (on my part). Once something is done it should be done, not dredged up forever. Bad form on my part. Please accept my apology.

Now back to being "on the take". As I said, I want to discuss how little I am making here. Should we start a *new* thread or discuss that here?

Also: why do you think Brad exposed my little scheme? Was he tired of making the payments to me?

Please advise!

AGBF, needing instructions of being on the take and on making halo drawings (hence the need to edit)

RockDoc,
You have had it in for us from the beginning. I've tried to be nice to you, but you are just not nice.
Have I done something wrong that you must follow me around on this forum with your nasty demeanor? What happened to helping consumers?
Anyhow, I will support any allegation or accusation that I said against you if you like. Just provide them right here and I will write a term paper with footnotes.
Otherwise, maybe you can find something better to do with your time.

Brad

Brad,
Why not start another thread on what ever the problems you and rock have, and respond to this topic here?

Oh never mind, it will never happen.

This was falling down the forum and since you apparently need it to prove you're not rockdoc (although I don't know what about this proves it), I am bringing it back up for you.

AGBF, helping

Why don`t you take your head out of my ass and do some research. It is out there for all to see.
Because I choose not to offer up a sacrifice doesn`t mean that what I`ve said about you isn`t clear, so get over it.

5 or 6 people have made some serious allegations. You haven't denied them so obviously you did what they say. Why bother with more proof. Do you want a video tape also?

Marcus,

Ok, you've made your opinion regarding rockdoc clear on too many threads to count now. However, if you were around longer, I think you'll see that rockdoc has answered I believe all the "charges" leveled against him.

This thread, on the other hand evolved into a straight question to Brad which he chose not to answer. Let's keep that straight. There are enough other threads now where you and davidt have chosen to take shots at rockdoc. Why don't we keep some of these threads separate.

I do plan to try and go back through some of the other threads if I get the time. Brad seems to allude in his posts that "the truth is out there" (you know, like Mulder says). I'll have to see if I can decipher it myself!
