LX80, LX800, Meade financials mount problems!
      #5526678 - 11/18/12 07:31 PM

Thought we needed a thread to rehash problems with the Meade mounts and the Meade financials. This way the members like myself that don't care can just stay out any y'all can go for it.

Really?

There are 2 active threads on Meade mounts now, and financials frequently come up.......

My 2 cents worth here.....close this thread, there are plenty already!

No, starting a thread to attack a vendor is flat-out wrong, even if it is also a violation of the TOS. The moderators should take this down.

I believe his point was tongue in cheek. Notice he said that he didn't care and everybody that was flaming Meade could do it here. I assume he meant stay out of the other threads and bring your bashing here so he and others could ignore it.

At least that is the way I took the OP.

You start a thread so you can stay out of it? No, we do not need another of these threads IMHO.

That's exactly how I took it. And the sentiment is mean-spirited and wrong, no matter how you parse it.

So now we have a thread on the interpretation/misinterpretation of the OP's intent about bashing/not-bashing Meade and their financials.......

Please close this thread......we have enough of this already.

Sorry... I thought this would provide a place the off topic comments that are not of much interest to some of us and cut down the post in the other LX80/800 threads to on topic comments. Seems like that is a unobtainable goal!

Moderator... As the OP, I'd like to request that you please delete this thread or at least lock it.

That's the problem. None of the other threads are about Meade's financials. But that topic comes up over and over. If someone wants to discuss that maybe they could start a thread about it.

Just thought it would be nice to have one place where all the members that are financial experts could exchange tips and opinions. Attacking the vendor was not the intent!

It's locked. We are all aware of the problems Meade is experencing. Enough is enough. It ends here.
