Well, you kinda' proof my point. And I don't mean this in any condescending way. If we spend 1000+ bucks for a kite we don't want to hear it sucks ...
I.E I fly a Bolt. Love that thing. One of the greatest things happen to mankind after canned beer and sliced bread. But I don't need a 'kite pimp' to tell me, what a great decision I made. I need a peer. The credibility of these pimps is less than 1%. It's worse than a car dealer. And unfortunately I met plenty of both. And these pimps are staining my beloved product.
I truly don't even want to be associated with people like them, and neither my friends, peeps and peers. And here's where these companies hurt themselves. We spent $$$ in gear and suddenly all their 'marketing effort' is burnt up. I am sure I am not the only one, I am just more outspoken.
It's probably kinda' like with you. Yes, you obviously like Naish and that's good. You are a real person (presumably
) and voice your opinion. But your are not a low score poster who's just showing up in forums to pollute them with insignificant marketing BS. Yes, you are right, every company has a different approach to it. But it comes with ramifications. This unavailing 'review' was just 'worth' 5 grands to another company.
My lines are not against you - more directed towards these companies. Plain face time in social media just doesn't cut it anymore - you gotta' be genuine
So, let's still be friends. Nothing against you. Just tired of marketing pollution.
