Did anyone cry for It's George when Ron Thomas copied them? Or cry for Fellini when so many case makers copied it? Or cry for Gina who made that style BEFORE Fellini.
Did anyone cry for Meucci who invented the foam core interior when Joe Porper copied it? Or does anyone on thise forum speak up when people are selling blatant Whitten knockoffs?
But if it's John Barton going to copy a Justis then the world is ending and they have to pull out every knock they can think of. Other case makers make "Justis-style" cases and no one utters the tiniest peep. Unless of course that maker happens to be in Asia and then it's a crime against humanity. What a joke that concept is.
i dont really think it is a Justis copy, I think it is just a flat out better case...period. You have to understand that most people ranting are probably sour because you are now offering the same style case they got ripped off on and making it better. I do kinda see a hidden agenda in these threads though and that agenda being you pointing out just what a ripoff Justis cases are and that could make folks sour too. As I have stated several times, you could wrap one of your cases in tinfoil and it would still offer better cue protection than any case available...is that level of protection needed?...probably not but I would rather have it available than not. I do think its time to leave Jackie alone though....Happy Ranting!
You are absolutely 100% correct. Unfortunately, JB's history and past actions here are the cause of all the fuss. Fellini, Meucci, et al don't come here almost daily and spend significant time arguing everything and anything against everybody like JB does. They don't come here and attempt to defend the indefensible Roy Mallott and his actions. This thread is simply an example of reaping what you sow.
BTW, in general, I don't care about JB's actions here (as I mostly just pass by his posts as a waste of band width) and as I posted earlier on this thread, I see no issue with what he has done. He's offering what I believe is a very good value on what is purported to be a quality case. Justis has no patent or copyright on that case design. He didn't invent pool cue cases. If JB appears to be dissing Justis because of a personal argument, too bad. Let Justis come on here and defend himself.
FWIW, I considered purchasing a JB case a couple of times when they were posted in the Wanted/For Sale section and didn't because of his actions and posting methods here. That hardly will cause him to miss a beat but I'm sure I'm not the only one here that has done that. According to JB, he has all the work he can handle which presents an interesting conflict with creating a thread to sell more. Go figure.
I can't chastise something that I didn't see. Who called your wife a $3 Chinese whore? Provide us with the comment that the person made.If people continue to swing at me then I retaliate.
I was mean spirited, now I am simply determined and focused. This is business in the first place and proving a personal point in the second place.
And I have not "attacked" a single innocent person since I have been back. Not one. I haven't even really attacked anyone at all. It's really simple, if you want to make claims about what I can't do then don't be surprised when I show you what I can do. I don't see you chastising anyone else. Did you chastise the person who called my wife a $3 Chinese whore? No you didn't. So save your false indignation for someone more gullible.
It's all protein and if cooked and spiced well enough who cares?
Oh, I dunno, about 320M Americans might care.
My boss went to China, and though he enjoyed the history and the landscape, and the people, he said the food was inedible. This guy travels the world over, plus spent 20 years in Army Intelligence and probably ate crap that would make a mountain goat puke, but he could not eat the stuff there......
He said he'd go back to China again, but would NOT eat anything other than Mickey D's while he was there...
#1 everything is defensible. If everyone were automatically guilty of whatever they are accused of then we can incarcerate 90% of the country right now.
Even the guy who called my wife a $3 whore has an excuse as to why he did it. You go off on Roy for getting hot at someone and calling them stupid but you don't condemn the guy who says things like that. Got it. You aren't running around being the morality police for all the nasty things people say to each other on here every day. So again, save the hypocrisy for someone else.
Yes we have all the work we can handle. That doesn't mean I don't want to hire more people and expand our business. And it doesn't mean I don't want to have a $300 price point case to sell.
And you're right I am sure a lot of people don't purchase my cases because they don't like me. That's life and I will live with being true to myself and selling to the people who get me rather than pandering to the people who don't. The wonderful part about this thing called the internet is that I don't have to kowtow to YOUR idea of how I should live and work I can find a significant audience that likes me the way I am and doesn't try to play the "I was a buyer" card with me in order to manipulate me.
Because really that's all your comments are geared towards. You want to put pressure on me to act in a way that pleases you in order for me to get your money. Well, you keep your money and spend it on some other monkey who will dance to the tune you like. This one dances to his own tune and if you don't like it, don't pay for it.
Dude, you're way too easy. I didn't see the comment regarding your wife. I find that 100x more reprehensible than anything I've seen Roy say. Let's be clear, however, Roy has called people far worse things than stupid.
Hypocrisy? Are you stupid or what. Hypocrisy would be if I stated it was okay for the guy to have made the comment about your wife and then turn around and state it's not okay for you or Roy to make similar statements. Can you please direct me to where I made any hypocritical statements like this? Or do you simply not understand the real definition of hypocrite? The reality is, you argue so much and type so much you tend to wear people out with effort rather than actually outwit anyone.
I am putting no pressure on you. I simply stated my opinion. I don't know you and I don't want to know you personally so I could care less how you act. I don't make or lose a penny based upon your business revenue. If you're truly as busy as you make yourself out to be, I can't help but wonder why you consume so much of your time wasting bandwidth arguing useless points on a website.
oh i see, calling me stupid is........
