Thanks Scott. Good to hear, because there’s only a few asshats there and their drivel elsewhere on the web also. I did send an email to the site owner Steve about it... but like most every other website owner (largely) outside of me, he was unresponsive.So, I visited the GrisoGhetto today. All of the offending posts that were "unkind" seemed to have been removed.
Thanks much for that. I'll keep on, keeping on (for now). Two decades of this is starting to take it's toll. This September marks our 20th year of the GuzziTech.com launch.I read all the posts. They were not all bad. There were some ambiguous and some even strongly supportive of GT. Many made good observations in their posts. There were however many snotty, ignorant, hating comments as well. I don't bother with other Guzzi sites, I like the way things work here. I am more than happy to support this site and buy Todd's excellent products.
Welcome(!), and thanks for those thoughts and words. Appreciated.There are always going to people with a variety of perspectives some based in prejudice, pride, jealousy or ignorance etc... If there talking @#$& , people with a brain will see it eventually, the one that don’t.. aren’t worth the effort to try and enlighten ! You can’t smack any sense into em, and arguing with some obstinate @#$&$# is a waste of time. There are many People that respect you and appreciate your support of the brand. Thank you !
You were one of the rare few that spoke up there Bob, much appreciated. I didn't revisit since posting the link originally above. I think it's a simple process here, and I work hard to keep things on track and not allow the topics to divert too much. The gripes of me owning info posted here is hugely ironic as that's the status quo for every website on the planet, including FacePlant. There's two jackasses from Oz that make the rounds working to destroy me and my work. The drunkard and his bedmate, the clueless insect thief of maps.I’m on WG and posted on this thread. There are a few ugly posts complaining about Todd’s rules. My point was to just follow the rules. It’s Todd’s forum and he pays the bills and makes the rules. My positive comments about guzzitech were not the only one. Seems the ones with their shorts in a knot seem to be influenced by the jackass from Australia
I often wonder why people feel the need to post things like that on other sites, as this site has been alive for much longer, and didn't steal all of the members out from underneath the MGNOC, which I dedicated a great deal of my time and resources in the '00s. Quite sad really. Secondly, I would say it's ~100:1 that people post links elsewhere to this site... and when they do, it ends in flames. Pathetic really.When I saw the topic title Arctic Fox (she's a 22-year-old from Finland) with good intentions created I knew there would be trouble. Never read any posts and wisely the moderators have deleted the thread. It's truly sad this occurs. There's too few MG riders and we have better uses of our remaining time.
That's a good thing Scott. Basically a few haters of this site... many of whom used to post here, but constantly ignored the quite simple requests of no hyperlinks to competing sites, and/or those who chose to argue with opinions, not facts. I like living in the facts. If I'm wrong, I'll be the first to state so. Typically I won't engage if I have little knowledge of the topic. I'll just read and absorb. I was a contributing journalist for CW Mag, as you likely recall, for ~7 years. Also, people think it's cute or funny to link to products I sell where they can be had cheaper... thing is, I always add/revise things to the product to insure they fit and work properly for the application. Most of what I sell I’ve had long time friendships with, as they were like me; Racers turned businesses.Deleted thread... Never saw what it said.
I can never understand why anyone would attack any aftermarket support for the Guzzi brand. It's so niche to begin with, we need all of the support we can get.
Thanks for everything you're doing for our bikes Todd.
