Hey Bungle. I don't know if that incident with Graham was with me, but I don't remember that I was the target of his abuse on this forum.Bungle said:Funny that a couple of years ago I was just looking for a good protective filter to complete weather seals, Graham putting the smack down on a reviewer on amazon is what sold me.
I don't remember what the reviewer was complaining about but it was pretty unreasonable. And rather than kiss the guys kiester he basically told him to go <blank> himself.
I'm so sick of people crying expecting companies to bend over and cater to their ridiculousness. Graham berating the guy was a breath of fresh air.
I now have BP protective filters on pretty much everything, and recently started using their X4 CPL and couldn't be happier with it. The 3stop ND just came in the mail today.
OH! And I recently toppled a tripod at it's lowest setting with camera attached. I was packing up to leave after a short trip and the ground was a little more uneven than I expected. The filter hit the rock and sand and got scuffed up just a little bit. I talked to someone via their facebook and a few days later I had a replacement in my hands. Free.
I agree with an earlier post (in german) about personality mirroring. You come off like a jerk, expect to be treated like one.
I would ask you to consider how you would feel if you got the "treatment". Maybe it wouldn't be as amusing as it was when someone else got reamed.
You could very well be the next victim of his arrogant abuse, so if not for the sake of insight, then at least for the sake of understanding that you could be victimized, think that through.
