Quoted from fatality83:

bottom line if you read this thread or any of the other numerous negative threads about him and continue to do business with him, you are knowingly supporting a shady company.

Exactly. Let's take this for example. You see a vendor with a fruit crate on the street selling oranges. You, an American citizen, approach him and buy three oranges. He treats you well and includes a small kiwi to compliment your order. You leave a happy customer. Now, suppose a French man approaches the shop and wants to buy five oranges. He gives the seller the money. The seller then says, "Oh I'm sorry, but the rest of these oranges are much too rotten. Take a hike and don't come back!" The disgruntled French patron leaves, then the next American buyer in line steps up and buys two perfectly healthy oranges no problem, both of which he would have sold to the French man.

And what's even worse, let's assume the French man calls law enforcement. They show up and question the seller. "Why did you not give this man his oranges, or at least refund his money? It looks like your oranges are fine to eat!" The seller then takes five oranges in his arms and says, "Oh, I'm terribly sorry. A plague hit my crops last night and those oranges were all but fit to eat. Here, please give these to that man." The officers believe his story and the French guy gets his fruit.

But here's the kicker: the seller has actually been screwing over various other foreign buyers before the French man approached the shop. The difference? He legally persued the fraud. The seller's BS story and history of blatantly fraudulent business practices went unnoticed by police.

So case in point, what would you as a happy American customer standing in that line do if you witnessed this constantly going on as well as hear the stories? Would you say, "Screw him, I got my oranges!" Or perhaps would you have a heart and sense of justice and join the foreign buyers in a protest? What kind of person would do the former?
