I'm not questioning his (bdseaman's) honesty or goodness. This isn't about him.
I just asked if he knows if it's the same person, given the statements.
You, RA, have been on the forum for awhile, and post in many contexts.
This poster bdseaman is new, triple posts the same message, with no real positive id, etc. and I find that a bit strange.
If it is not the same person, then those are obviously very radical allegations....
If it is by some chance the same person, then I still don't understand reason for the velocity and ferocity of these postings: there is no context of complaint against Mark of Spada-USA anywhere on this forum, nothing approaching the allegations, of several years ago by the way, made by bdseaman. These posts just appeared out of the blue.
I've personally never experienced a single negative issue of delivery of product from SpadaUSA, and I don't know of anyone else here who has, so why are these postings appearing now? In what contaxt exactly?
I just think one should be careful, provide real backup and frankly state their own real name before calling out someone else (an individual) on a public forum.
For me, this isn't only about "Mark" whoever, it's about an ethics of communication in public places. There are previous threads on this forum and others where certain companies/individuals were criticized harshly, but never, even then, were people's actual names used. Would all of us post our real names here? I doubt it, for reasons of privacy; then I believe equal right to privacy is deserved by all, unless an extreme circumstance of public knowledge obtains.
