As this seems to have caused such a stir let's put it to bed once and for all. I did not leave feedback, blast Mr. Early or go crying to paypal at the time because it just seemed so petty. A simple "I goofed and am sorry" would have sufficed The cranks worked fine just a little rougher than was expected, clearly not what was advertised. What rankled me was the rude superior tone evident in even his initial CR posting. The prove it or to hell with you attitude. His basic persona is revealed in his suggestion that I should have complained or flamed him with bad feedback---i guess that is how he behaves which alone proves my point.

\Further to this, I am the recipient of many other emails from persons with whom Early has dealt who have also noted his rude bullyiing tactics----something about a pair of brifters for which he threatened negative feedback unless1/2 the money was returned. I want nothing from Early and no longer wish this discussion to go on. I have asked him on more than one occasion to cease his direct campaign of threatening, condescending email messages and hope that he does so. This thread has taken a bizzare life of its own that is not the purpose of the list. I have no idea if Early sent the racist message or not--I have no means of knowing. Frankly why would Early admit that he was a closet racist-facsist?

Let it be.........
