Yup. And I think it's really important to encourage copyright infringement wherever we can. That way, nobody will have any incentive to design stuff and, eventually, manufacturers won't have to be accountable for their products. Make the world a better place for sure.

I probably have you on my list already, but it's rather hard to keep usernames, real names, and email addresses all linked. what's your email address (or if you don't want to post, just post a piece of it) so I can check with my list

What you've just done is prove that it's you who knows nothing about how the world really works. I'm sorry you so quickly sunk the conversation to this level. Must be quite embarrassing for you.

BTW, if this forum exists for people who "care about spending less", then I'll cancel my membership.
Hey there, "HOSS", looks like a lot of people are on this forum and participating in this group-buy. Why? To save money!! Question is, when you cancel'n that membership???

If you're that hard up for cash, maybe you should be driving something else.

Meanwhile, I would love to see someone defend buying counterfeit merchandise on any sort of moral or ethical grounds whatsoever (never mind legal ones). It's no different than pirated music or films or fake Louis Vuitton bags. By definition, it's something posers do, and it's wrong.

Let's remember, there, cupcake: The best way of all to save money is to steal.

Oh, and I'll cancel my membership as soon as I'm convinced most folks on this board are like you. There's no value in paying for ****ty information when there's so much free out there. Gotta save money, you know.

Most people are probably like me, in that they want to find the best deal that they can, but still get great quality. That's what group-buys are for. That's all I ever claimed I was trying to do...and if that's so wrong, than Brucie, I don't wanna be right!!!

On the last contentious thread re: the aluminum gauge rings, you made it into some Chinese labor issue. You turned aluminum rings into some big political thing, claiming it was the reason for our demise and how all of our money is in China, BLAH BLAH BLAH. You attaching some sort of morality to it is ridiculous. I found that hilarious, and still do.

You're blowing this thing WAY out of proportion. I think maybe you need to lighten up, just a little.

I think your point is completely fair and right, as long as the pedals don't have someone else's logo on them.

Even if "most people" are like you, I kind of hope that there are a few people like me, too, who think that you have to do what's right even if it's inconvenient sometimes. And who care about more than how they look.

Anyhow, I didn't blow anything anywhere. Made one comment. Unfortunately, that flushed you out and the snide shots followed predictably thereafter.

I agree with you. If Porsche does NOT make it, nor license it, yet it has their name on it, that is certainly immoral, if not illegal. I understand you making a comment against it, and I agree with you. However, I am not the Porsche police and I'm certainly not going to break my arm, trying to figure out if Porsche ok'd the manufacture/sales of said product. I do however commend your stand.

PS. Sorry if I was a little snide...

I have emailed and pm'ed the following users:

- 03Targa
- emty

I need to know if they need a set of manual or tip and I also need 'emty's' email address. Does anybody know these folks?

Man, this is like hurding cats... should be pretty simple... if only people would follow the simple instructions!

Happy to do it though
