Dude wake up. Free speech is not slandering companies.
I dont care if you dont believe. But dont sprout free speech BS to me when it is slander and defamation we are talking about.
Who is slandering companies?
We are a group of enthusiasts with opinions in a public forum on the Internet---DESIGNED FOR DISCUSSING. Including dealer and/or vendor situations.
Take it however you feel you need to, but I will take it as knowing my rights.
If someone has an experience at a company, and publicly talks about it, that is his right. Unless he is in Afghanistan, etc.
Opinion is not slander. Talking about your experiences is not slander. Putting up a website claiming Coca Cola has rat poison in it is slander (but you are only culpable if they can prove damages). If BD gives someone a run-around like they did to the OP, he can post about it. I will discuss and post abpout it all year long, if I want. That is one of my rights.
Somebody call the copsssssss!
BTW, I have been a BD customer since back in '94. My experience with them has been good. But I am also free to discuss other's less fortunate experiences with them as well.
