This has been a great site for information and for the small fee I paid to be the member it has been well worth it.

Best $30 bucks I spend, saved big on technical information. You will spend more than $30 at the stealer just to have them tell you the problem. You can get that here...

Along with other things that shall remain nameless.

I`ve been considering becoming a team member,but I dont have,nor do I want a Paypal account.
Call me paranoid if you wish,but I`m just one of those weird people that does not care for doing financial transactions over the internet,(when I shop ebay,I have a friend make the purchase for me,with his paypal account)and I detest automatic payments of any sort. (been there done that,nothing but headaches in general)
Bert:what,if any, renewal notification is there for those of us who would prefer to pay via personal check,or money order?
It is a shame that this person feels the need to threaten legal action,todays society is far too litigious.It seems that everyone and their brother is just looking for someone to sue.
However,if this person has had problems in the past with automatic payments,the way I have, I guess I could understand his attitude a bit better(even if it was his own fault,for not reading the fine print.)

I have not set up any kind of renewal notification but I guess I will have to look around and try to find some software that can do that.

Thanks for the input.

You handled that w/ class Bert, as ussual. It is a shame when someone threatens before even asking. As said before When dealing w/ alot of people there will be bad apples but most of us are good and appreciate you and this site. Keep up the good work! Guy

I think I'll sue as well.
Spend so much time here, plus I get too many ideas on how to spend money.

Expect my claim for a 2006 Sportser or Screaming Eagle Ultra Classic E-glide....


Good job Bert. I am always happy to support this forum. Plus, I love those how-to videos.

Bert, you do a wonderful job and I have had nothing but good times since I joined. When I first joined my membership didn't activate right away so I went through the motions again and everything went fine. I recieved my statement and saw two charges for XLForum, by the time I sent an e-mail to you to see if I was good for 2 years or not you had already sent the refund for the second charge. I have never gotten service like that from an internet type of business and it was a breath of fresh air for me. Thank you again, keep up the good work.
Chris

I would, quite frankly, love to meet the attorney that would take on a lawsuit over a $30 issue!!! This would be a truly desperate individual who is really in quest of a life.

I realize it's difficult not to go postal over trivial threats like this. But don't sweat the small stuff. The Forum will endure and if some d---head wishes to challenge your integrity, I will lead the efforts to raise funds for the Forum Legal Defense Fund. I suspect we can interest an attorney of a somewhat more esteemed caliber than the competition!

Sadly the Western World has become totally caught up with the I demand compensation, Or I will sue, and I will take legal advice, and should you not... then I will have no option but to take matters further, immeditely take legal action etc, etc.

Whilst there are times when people have been ripped off, miss sold, or blatantly lied too, there are also lot's of situations that just occur from people not reading what they, have bought, signed, subscripted too etc... and what is even more depressing is that they are the ones who shout and scream the loudest... and sickingly they are often the ones who get the claim, compensation etc, not the poor souls who have been genuinelly ripped off and have nowhere, or don't know where to turn.

I have to deal with this every day, and I do my best to get it right, but I am sick of the situation we find ourselves in. So well done Bert for pointing out the fact that it was his lack of knowing what he had done, rather than the forum ripping him off.

But personally, I don't know the guy... but I do think the forum is better off without him, and I would be delighted to donate his refund and give it to someone the Team thinks may be a worthwhile member. Then you can send him an email saying subscription has been refunded and thank you for being responsible for arranging the payment for another to join the forum free of charge!

Not only will that confuse him, it will no doubt cause him a few sleepless nights, he deserves all he gets.
