Anyone else notice he's no longer a sponsor?

Oooh, there is more ... I almost spilled the coffee at my keyboard laughting when I saw it. It was so funny ...


Later today Tom posted at his web board, the following message:

Everybody start a new thread over there about thow you like your kit. You will be tormented for doing so but the pain is worth it. Thanks for the support.

It was at this address:

http://www.fastforwardsuperchargers....54&postcount=7

Looks like Gary wasn't happy reading about the shill plan (and quite right), since that post now reads:

Quote:
Deleted at the request of Gary Fischman at mnet.
So, Tom's posts at mnet were with the main goal to shill? ...

P.S. And don't jump now posting on the FFS board. Because Tom moderates there. Your posts will disappear sometimes, even if containing useful technical links. And he also sometimes alters posts making them sound like you've meant something totally different. Once I posted links to biggulp's web site about pulley cutting tech info, etc. and all that got deleted. If you ask questions why, the questions get deleted too ...

On their board they can announce it as the best EMS ever, the mother of all EMS, whatever ... I won't even bother go reading it ... It's their board, they can write whatever they want ...

Any other questions?

Who was the other one? I'm out of the loop. Haven't paid attention to all the m.net threads here.

You guys seem to direct a bit much aggression toward Gary F. He needs to appease the sponsors to give them incentive to pay the sponsorship fees. He makes bank on m.net. Nothing wrong with that. I'm a bit envious I don't have a website that makes a bunch of money every month for very little work.

i was a m.net sponsor once, got nothing but emails from assfucks and no sales. gary got pissed when we pulled, but we told him we only wanted to try a month or two in the first place. he wants payment in advance so when we told him to pull us and we weren't paying for the next month (which was in the 2nd day IIRC) he freaked out big time. my little story has no point, i just felt like sharing.
