he's a fool because his first reaction, while controversial, was a reasonable business decision for the reasons I gave above (if you can't make money and enjoy doing it, it's not worth it) and then he pussied out because the Internets went all whiney bitch on him. Now he's back where he started and has a little worse reputation for his trouble.

Both sides are wrong obviously. The people should have been a little more constructive with the criticism so COBB could actually do something about it, instead it just turned into a giant **** slinging fest.

Its like if tomorrow BEGI decided to stop making parts because I harass them every chance I get. Id feel pretty ******* bad about it because I secretly hope they heed my advice but ill also be pissed that now there is no alternative for parts, no one making headway into new parts and the community loses something. Something is better then nothing. I think COBB didnt get the idea and bounced instead.
people like you and I will always need people to:
flip burgers
sell cellular phones
put things we purchase in plastic bags
receive e-thugging
provide nonconstructive criticism

as a liberal hippie, you should be bringing your own reusable tote thus eliminating the third type of person.
