    Dear singletrack

    The stuff you’re giving away for free isn’t up to the standards I demand! I want something better

    Nope…. Can’t see why they’ve an issue

    Did you used to have the same problem with birthday presents from your parents if they weren’t deemed acceptable?

    Lol… sometimes, your opinion is not worth voicing. Or to put it like my wise Mother in Law, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”.

    If that’s the true sequence of events, it’s amazing that they’d want to lose a customer that easily.
    Maybe we haven’t seen all the emails?

    They can get a bit touchy…

    Rmember these two facts: The customer is always right; and it takes a long time to build a reputation, but only a short time to lose it.

    The refund of remaining subs is a nice gesture but why have you suspended the account Mark?

    Bollocks! I actually admire them more for saying a big F-off and giving him his money back. If he’s going to be a ****t about things then I think they’re taking the right stance.

    Part of his sub was Premier. That needs to be stopped too.

    You’re both right, have a fight to sort it out.
    Do we get a prize if we’re the last one I have no useful contribution to make down?

    If they can afford to lose customers that easily they must be rolling in it!

    I thought the past few prizes have been alright. This months isn’t my cup of tea so I haven’t bothered entering but i’m sure someone will be more than happy to win it.

    He isn’t a customer (sub was a gift), and he is wrong. Correct response from STW IMO

    STW gives away free stuff on Tuesdays? I’ll seek that out, cheers for the PSA.

    Premier Icon Wookster

    I wouldn’t slate the prize to be fair, if you don’t rate it don’t enter, but why slag it off on the fourm?

    Im not sure that banning people and chucking their money back at them is a good way to deal with it either though??

    EDIT

    I judge their comments posted on our site to be rude and unfair. The response we received above just convinced me that it’s for the best if both parties go their own ways.

    Actually fair enough.

    I’ve always tended to take the view that comments in the ‘editorial’ side of the site need to be self moderated much more than those in the forum.

    To use a pub analogy, you *might* get away with slagging off the landlord’s wife sat at your table but it’s probably best to avoid doing it at the bar where the landlord can hear you.

    This thread will likely get closed at some point as it’s pretty negative all round. But I didn’t want anyone thinking we’d got anything to hide here. I stand by the decision. Knowing how much work goes in to these competition stories, both on our side at Singletrack and on the part of the LBS involved each week I reserve the right to choose who we do custom with where I judge their comments posted on our site to be rude and unfair. The response we received above just convinced me that it’s for the best if both parties go their own ways.

    It’s free and a bit of fun, what’s not to like?
    For most STW is very free – infact many make money from it an contribute very little IMO.

    Is this setting a precedent, say something the owners/bosses don’t like and get shown down the road? Slippery slope IMO

    say something the owners/bosses don’t like and get shown down the road

    it’s always been like that here.

    plenty of short and long term bannings of people who’ve broken whatever rules the owners choose to apply?

    Mark, you missed out the bit that says, โ€œ…and don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜†

    Totally agree with the STW side on this one. You got told off, do you NEED the last word OP? Grow up.

    Personally like the regular little prizes ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t say I want this one, entered the previous one for the wheels though.

    if a pub offers free beer, and someone, who’s mate bought him a drink, starts shouting round and outside the pub how ‘lame’ the free beer is, how long will the landlord/owner/resident grumpy put up with it?

    I haven’t often agreed with Mark in the past but I think he’s bang on in this case. Good work.

    If the OP had just emailed STW with the opinion that the “prizes” were, he thought, “getting a bit lame” then fair enough. But to leave a completely negative personal opinion on the front page comments of the article was a bit silly, IMO ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Have a quiet word/discussion by all means, but moan in the comments, nah, i don’t think so. I’m with STW on this one……..
