It is a member's responsibility to do their own research IMO.

    Brian recently bought some fish from Uncle Sam's and here is his live stock review http://forum.simplydiscus.com/showth...23-Uncle-Sam-s. Brian has some followup threads on this subject also. Uncle Sam's was once a sponsor here and they did well. A couple years ago Uncle Sam's changed ownership and has slowly slipped on both fish quality and customer service.

    I suspect there are a multitude of very good and unknown sellers everywhere in the world. But for large volume and wide ranges of choice there are few good ones. At the very least the forum sponsors, and why not include Hans in the mix, have been in business for many years. They are consistently well reviewed year in and year out. So why risk trying out something new or at least less reviewed.

    Two examples. Two weeks ago the engine in son Little Ricky's car gave up. He did his due diligence and shopped for the best price. In the end I recommended that he have the work done at a local shop high volume shop who had been in business for more than 30 years. The guy was more expensive but he had the reputation and he guaranteed his work. Little Ricky agreed and I knew n the end sometimes you pay more but in the long run you may save money because the repairs were don right the first time. He has yet to understand that concept because I am hearing complaints from him yesterday about the car, new engine and AC.

    Second. I need a new front end on my car, because of crash. I am with State Farm. I thought I needed to get estimates but State Farm said to take to the shop next door to where the engine was replaced. They have been in business for 40 years, large shop, and State Farm had so much faith in them that they would honor the estimate whatever ti was. Again, the auto body shop is more expensive than most but I know they will do a good job. This car needs custom painting as a part of the repair but I was assured that they could handle it. Again, in both instances I could have gotten a lower price but the reviews and the reputations of both businesses are 4.5 star or higher.

    With Kenny, Miranda, Dennis, Golden State, and other forum sponsors you get the best of the best. And if they screw it up they have the forum membership to answer to.

    No, not only has Discus.com not admitted to stealing Kenny's photos, it has gone on to brazenly steal photos of other breeders. Discus Hans just posted on FB the other day complaining how discus.com claims that it sells Han's exclusive stendker bloodline. The owner of Discus.com is a very bold and remorseless individual. He doesn't admit to his wrongdoings. For him, stealing photos is just business, a way to gain a competitive advantage. He has drawn the ire of many discus keepers. I saw an exchange on Facebook once between the owner of Discus.com and a renowned breeder where the breeder accused the owner of stealing his business, and the owner merely shrugged it off, telling him to mind his own business. You seriously can't get the owner of Discus.com to stop his immoral conduct. Even when the whole community has accused him of fraud, Discus.com continues to steal photos and customers of the breeders.

    Trademark and copyright lawyer, in the house, one of the peewee children. Says that Kenny can send a letter of copyright infringement to the provider...etc. So what I will do is send an email to Kenny outlining what steps he can take and then him pursue if he so desires.

    Karma will get him one day. Someone as unethical as him will most surely get bit in the butt one day. I hope he gets bit hard.

    Mark, Marks' words. A bite mark on his butt will be the result of Discus.com re-mark-able bad practice.

    This has absolutely nothing to do with this thread but let me see if I can contribute:

    Randy "Pee Wee" Anderson (1959–2002), American wrestling referee.
    John Howell Collier (1899–1980), United States Army lieutenant general.
    Pee Wee Crayton (1914–1985), American R&B and blues guitarist and singer.
    Thomas "Pee Wee" DePhillips, a capo in the Genovese

    Discus.com sucks.... think we can all agree on that ....
