    Glad I wasn't the only one who said, "hey I love etsy!" when Greta mentioned it. Total for supporting independent craftsmen and women.

    I'm sorry, but that gave me a double

    It is a really awesome place. Got our wedding save the dates, invites, and thank you's on there. So many skilled people in one place. Totally killer.

    Other than to DM51, I have nothing to add.

    I can almost count with the fingers of one hand the CPFers who've committed this kind of actions onto our community... ...they're not on CPF now.

    No one is perfect and we all have our foibles. At some point, I hope that Arc Mania can offer an honest and forthright explanation or mea culpa.

    possibly one of the best quotes in this thread......this great country could erase our current deficit in about three days- I would owe hundreds of millions in back stupid tax alone. Then they could charge me 3 million percent stupidtiy compounded hourly interest.

    Yes all my information came from Arc mania and I am not him (tino_ale careful who you are stabbing in the back mate)
    But I have to say any lights i have bought from him have been what they were described as, and the quality is some of the best I have owned/seen IMHO.

    Yes he can be slow to deliver/produce - but for me they have been worth the wait.
    I am not going to tare someone down, as this for some reason just jumped into my mind - a little saying "let he who is without sin cast the first stone"..... I know I have done/said some dumb things in the past, and I am not saying he has done the wrong/right thing here - only he and or the manufacturer can know the real truth, but I am willing to hear his side - besides its my money and I can spend or loose it on what I want - Hmmm another saying "a fool and his money are soon parted" maybe I am a fool?

    Thanks for your time

    This is just perfect!!! This happens right as I was about to unveil the first of my creations... one that I have been working on for no less than 3 years... it too is a bike light and I have even taken the time to make a one of a kind mount for it.

    Oh well, I will put the design on the shelf for a bit until folks are able to trust again... then I will open the prepay for a very reasonable $431.39.

    Until then, I wanted to leave you with a teaser picture of my first ever bike light w/the custom handlebar mount.



    By the way, DM51... you were wonderful; well done but don't get any ideas about trying to expose me, because I am totally legit.

    I take great pride in my designs but more than anything else, I consider them functional works of art... I know that you might be tempted to put them on a shelf and admire them, but they really are meant to be used.

    Finally, these will be very limited in their availability and hence the premium price; they may look like other designs that you have seen before but belive me, they are completely original.

    You can opt out of the stupid tax by paying a small fee that coincidentally is equal to the amount of the stupid tax

    I have had them on the drawing board for some time now and I anticipated that there would be some demand, but you must understand that the black attachment option will not be cheap. They are made from a very rare material that is extremely hard to come by and the price will reflect that.

    When they are ready, I will offer them as an option.

    But alas, I fear that there is too much skepticism to bring such a fine product to market at this time...

    Ok... I think the dust has finally settled enough and we've veered enough off topic to finally close this thread...

    So here is the deal... ARC Mania will not be banned from CPF at this time. He still has open threads and transactions going on. Those of you who have a personal, financial interest in those threads and transactions should not be penalized because the revelations in this thread.

    The future for ARC Mania at CPF is still not decided. This thread will remain stickied.
