    Sponsor bashing and abuse

    Hey guys,

    I just wanted to take a quick minute to talk about our fellow sponsors and how SOME of the members of this board try to rip them off....they feel they can get away with getting free products or having their order resent, because of the lack of English they speak. The customer goes back and forth with the sponsor in hope that the sponsor will just give up and send a few more bottles or possibly another order. I have seen this happen MANY times with my own eyes, and I have even read where some guys were boasting about how they got free gear and such.

    And yes, I'm mostly talking about WP here. The man is one of the hardest working men that I know....he works his ass off and has minimal team members. He does 90% of the work all on his own. He does have partners in other parts of the wold if you order certain things HE does not carry locally.

    In a long story short, I have had him as a sponsor on many of the boards that I used to own and work on. He started getting a trend of people stating that they did not get their xanax. That happens when you deal with junkies. I told him to only offer it to customers that have spent a good $500-$1000 on AAS before they are allowed to do so. I heard a guy in my GYM that said he was going to get some test prop from WP....AND NOT PAY FOR IT!! Yep, that's what he said. I asked if you had a special relationship wit WP.....he said, "no, I just bitch a few times and he sends me shit". I flipped my shit when I heard this and almost made him swallow a plate as if it was a tic tack.

    Those of you who try and scam WP should damn well be ashamed of yourselves. The man has been in this business for at lease 1/2 dozen years....he's not going to risk it all on some xanny head or two lousy bottles. A line has to be drawn. YES...it was I who told him not to resend shit without a customs letter. Man works his fuckn ass off and does all he can to make everyone a happy customer....than you have others that try to take advantage of his kindness. Like I said, I worked with him for many many years....and he is not going to risk his business over a pack of xanax or a couple bottle of oil.

    I'm not pointing ANY fingers here at anyone....so please don't PM me or ask me to get involved in a situation that is ongoing. I have worked with WP on several occasions, and with all the right paperwork and money trails, we have always come to a conclusion and understanding. But like that fucker at my GYM who said he's going to get some free gear from WP by just complaining a few times....those of you you who are like him should all rot away. Those of you being honest....my hat comes off to you for being sheer gentlemen.

    Damn right it has...and you know why? Because everyone here knows WP stuff is #1, but they would rather steal it than pay for it. Makes me freakin' sick.

    WOW...Now look what you have done? But I have to say that from what cooper has posted and the way WP is responding is getting old. Yes I have used WP and would recommend him. I also believe their is a language barrier. I also believe that I have been here long enough to agree that mods, admin, reps need to respect the members and vice versa. One last thing Mike you should tread lightly here. Have you read all the posts? Cooper seems like he is handling this very well and the other party not so well.

    My comments aren't directed towads cooper, as I don't know any of the details and always give people the benefit of the doubt. Really, the only way to fix this problem from continuing to happen to CHANGE the way things are done. A simple signature option would work well enough.

    Hypocritical words for someone who continued to support Big D even after EVERYONE knew he had fucked us. In fact, you were the ONLY one who stuck around and actually tried to dicredit valid customer complaints when all of us knew he was gone.

    As for PSL, you better include over half the other Mods on this board, including Admins, as ALL of us highly supported PSL for quite some time...as long as things were being done correctly...and they were for a long time. Business was good for years and he had some of the best qaulity control in place of all the UGL's. I think I speak for all of us who were involved during that time that we did the right thing in both supporting PSL, as well as bailing when we did. In fact, it was the Mods who brought things out into the open when things went south. How often does that happen with other UGL's? That's quite a departure from the way you've been known to handle things. All of us foresook our owed earings and alerted the members. You waited until you had no choice but to bail. Obviously, protecting the members was the LAST thing on your priority list, which is apparent given you history of customer advocacy...or should I say "lack" of customer advocacy. There is a difference between you and I. You care primarily about yourself, while all of my dealings and actions with UGL's has ben forthright and with the customer in mind. Too bad I can't say the same for you.

    ...and to infer that WP is going bad--well--that just makes you look like an asshole.

    I hear ya', bro. You are a like a big, glowing target for scammers because you almost always re-send stuff, even when a complaint can't be proven to be valid. Lots of other sponsors won't re-send shit without a customs letter, but because you have so many times in the past, guys think you are easier to take advantage of. The fact most people know your gear is great doesn't do anything to help the situation either. Of course, other sponsors have this problem too.

    yeah I don't want to get involved in any current or past drama but people that order need to also understand that if a sponsor DOES flip their shit and I don't mean just WP by any stretch that its probably because some jerk comes along and tries to scam them daily, so they're suspicious right out of the gate. Wouldn't you be a bit jaded if everyone was trying to get something off you for free every day?

    Look peeps, showing a customs letter is standard for international before a reship...it usually takes a bit for the letter to show up. If you've been playing the game for a bit you know this is how it works..asking for any deviation of that makes YOU look suspect.

    there is of course an element of human error but you have to be patient.
    again..this isn't in reference to any current drama that's going on..this is for all sponsors and customers

    There are alternatives brother. Melatonin for an example. I have never heard of anybody use Xanax while on tren in my 20 years of AAS use until i came one this board. Just another thing to get addicted to, kids on benzo's. Why not just do coke for a pre-workout?

    Ive seen it on 4 or 5 different steroid boards..

    uhmmm.. is this some sort of moral judgement being posted on a steroid board? over drug use? recreational or therapeutic?
    cuz that'd be interesting to try and defend

    As a side point Vic, we all must be careful of those sponsors which come heavily recommended by a mod or admin to the community, sometimes the sponsor bails out and the mod who spoke for him, touted his reputation, praised him to the hilltops, then same mod or rep just holds up his hand and says, "well ,,he was a good guy till this happened" , ie: Big D
