Remember one thing, GRM does not part ways with anyone on friendly terms.
We stopped advertising with them and they immediately started telling everyone that we were no longer in business. We had no ill words, just weren't seeing any return on advertising dollars spent and didn't renew. It's really a shame, they never pulled the bait and switch or double billing stuff that Primedia and McMullen/Argus pulled, but it had to cost more to deal with the GRM misinformation than we ever spent on ads with them.
A little background info. on who you are and did they actually print that you were out of businesss? Just wondering.....
I am unclear about how the identity of the victim is relevant to the crime committed. The content of the previous post and this post contain details that quite clearly could not be made up.
Grass Roots Motorsports published false and misleading information on their website. In multiple places, they stated that our company was no longer in business. This was brought to the attention of Tim Suddard, who had in the past presented himself as a friend. I've met with Tim personally, shook his hand, and spent an afternoon talking with him. But in this situation, Tim hid behind his wife, who flatly refused to remove the false and misleading content from the GRM website. Marjorie's response was that this was "your problem with the big bad people on the internet".
This was of course followed by more advertising solicitations from Mr. Schroeder.
Quite frankly, I'd like to return the favor to GRM by paying to have articles placed in national newspapers heralding GRM's bankruptcy, because they did nothing less to us. But it will be much more entertaining to wait for them to go under on their own, just like SCC and Turbo. I'm patient, I'll stand by the river and watch for more corpses to float by (Sun Tsu, The Art of War).
If the details above are not persuasive without revealing the identity of the victim, then perhaps this all can be chocked up to a "problem with the big bad people on the internet".
