    I'm not sure when this happened, but I just saw it.

    So, Paul Buff (of Alien Bees fame) used to be on DPR, POTN and FM, and he kept getting into arguments with people about the performance of AB lights, particularly when compared with Elinchrom's.

    Eventually Paul gets fed up, takes his ball and goes home and launches his own forum so that he can control the content and messaging. Whatever. The forums do end up getting pretty good traffic though and some of the posts were actually useful.

    I stop by and check the forums today for the first time in probably a year and this is posted:

    So, now the guy is so butthurt over the internet criticizing him for failing to deliver a product he's been hawking on his website for months that he's closed his own forums? Holy fail. :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Einstein.

    Here's Paul's response about the whole issue, for the lulz:

    I'm also in tears from laughing at this:

    It doesn't even cost $100k/year to run OT, so who is this clown trying to kid? :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    he recently showed back up on FM and threw another hissy fit.... Basically he just can't take negative feedback and lashes out at anyone who doesn't think he's a genius that owns the best lighting company in the world.

    He's just old and just sucks at the internet. Old people take stuff on the internet way too seriously. In general I like their products and think they have a well run company.

    It's the type of company that I love....
    but it seems like the company i'd HATE to work for.
    Mainly bc of working under Paul.
