Since Plextor has not to replied to my wholly civil & polite email, I’d like to be more certain they clearly understand all of the ramifications of their recent actions. Please feel free - or not - to add your own “signature”. I’d also like to ask anyone who wishes to discuss the contents to do so in another thread as I’d like Plextor to clearly understand from this thread how many of their best customers and “early-adopters” they have lost. Without further ado, bombs away:
This Open Letter was prepared without the foreknowledge or approval of CDFREAKS.COM, RankOne Media Group (NL), or any of their staff, affiliated companies or sponsors, web hosting company, or anyone else. Dear Plextor, I, an individual member of the informal Plextor community forum at CDFreaks and Plextor customer, have recently become aware of a dispute between your Company and two forum members. While I am not aware of every nuance of your complaint(s), I feel that what little is known so far reflects very badly on Plextor and all its representatives. Unless and until you provide further clarification and resolution of this dispute to me and the other members of this community, I resolve, as part of fully exercising my rights as a consumer to publicly state a product preference, to inform you that I will: -Indefinitely suspend purchasing or new licensing of any hardware or software products produced or promoted by Plextor, its subsidiaries, or parent companies. This includes all Plextor optical drives, Plextools ProfessionalÂ® (or upgrades), Plextools XLÂ®, Plextor Personal Video Recorders, Plextor-branded blank media, or any other Plextor-branded products available now or in the future; -Indefinitely refrain from promoting, recommending, supporting, or demonstrating the use of any version of PlextoolsÂ®, or any other Plextor-branded software; -Recommend competing or alternative products to friends, family, strangers, business associates, and I.T. & Purchasing departments at every opportunity; -Publicize the known and verifiable aspects of this dispute as widely as possible via any communications medium I deem fit, for as long a period as it suits my purposes to do so. Thank you for your time.
