You should have been notified and I apologize for this; it was my oversight. That said, the threads were removed because disputes with a commercial entity need to be settled elsewhere - we are simply not in a position to ascertain who's right and who's wrong. Our forum rules specifically address this:
Dealer/Vendor and Customer Disputes: This forum is not intended to be a mechanism for people to vent frustrations about vendors or sales from private parties. Please settle your differences with sellers, manufacturers and dealers through the long-established legal or arbitration systems or the Better Business Bureau but not through our community.
We have this rule because folks sometimes register specifically to use the board to smear a business or to coerce something from a business. Invariable the business either registers to post "their side" or a lawyer contacts us. Libel cases drag the forum into expensive messes that aren't really our battle to begin with. if you have more questions about this please send me a PM.
Thanks for understanding.
