    wow...

    while any business can refuse the right to ship to anyone, that's pretty shitty. I'm sure that'll work wonders for their business reputation.

    The sad part is that there are people who will agree with them:sad2:

    i wonder if this email was from some low-level employee who thought they could get a free shot in about the war.

    it just doesn't make business sense to offend potential customers.

    still, i think too many people are getting riled up over it. don't support the miltiary? fine. i disagree, but they have the right to that opinion.

    My first thought, too, was "fake". Negative, some tool in SE Wisconsin thought that was a good response to the troops. The company owner mentioned somewhere that the employee who sent the e-mail is being held accountable for it (I'm sure he'll lose his job over it :rolleyes: ). They've also had to take down their website in response to that e-mail being put out on the internet. Hopefully it'll cost them some business. Being stupid should hurt both physically and financially.

    Here's the Snopes link.

    Actually under USPS regulations they can't discriminate if they want to continue to ship any products through USPS.

    but he doesn't have to sell to them, hence not having to ship to them;). See what I'm saying.

    Stupid Army guys. Don't they know that those sand mites will just infest the mats and make it 10 times worse for them than it already is?


    That reply was fucked up for sure.
