I just had a major manufacturer rep threaten to infringe on the RR trademark if I don't hand over the site to be run by them. It was a very inspiring conversation. This business is not for the faint of heart.

Mark, I feel for you sir. It might be your best bet to limit what you post in an open forum. What is happening sucks in the highest order but holding whatever cards you have close to the chest might work in your favor down the road. This thread should illustrate the support that is here for you, It's substantial. Open communication here might have unintended consequence later. All imho. Good luck

RIP ROMAN

I wouldn't inform them of being recorded. Last time I looked, Michigan only requires one party in the conversation to consent to recording (you). As for threatening to infringe - - - well - - - record it and when they do - - - sue the h*** out of them. A lot of lawyers will take that one on contingency.

Depends upon law in each individual state.

This is the way it is in Louisiana, one party is all that's required.

This is unbelievable. I would love to know who it is so I we be able to "infringe" upon their company!

There is nothing like knocking you down further when you are already at a low point.

Mark, I am very sorry for this. Although selfishly, I will miss this site a great deal, it is not about me. I can't imagine all of the hard work and battles you have fought over the years to keep this site up and as successful as it has been.

I will truly miss this site on a daily basis. And as for you, BEST OF LUCK and I hope to see you again on another forum, either as a owner, or a member. Either way, it will be a pleasure.

Good luck and may God be with you.

I have a question. How can we keep in touch with what is going on with the site after it is closed down? Do you have a facebook page Mark so we can see if you get to open it up again?
