Dang, I didn't think about that!! Well it's empty right now anyway so I guess I wouldn't be out much. Except the fact that I got a 75 with cabinet and canopy for 100 bucks, where else would I find a deal like that?

My wife's an attorney. Believe it.

Since you put it in writing its libel.

To state an opinion based on something because of personalexperience and loss is OK but to generalize that all of their products are bad and solicit others to follow your demeaning banter is opening yourself up to a potential lawsuit.

I know that PetsWarehouse.com went after a few people who were posting negative info on the web. I think its still in court.

i think it's all been settled. i believe robert novak declared bankruptcy. probably due the negative attention he brought upon himself. kinda ironic.

petwarehouse.com changed their name to drfosterandsmith.com to avoid any kind of confusion.

Doggone right, it's America

You can't say anything you want without repercussion...
you can't yell "FIRE" in a crowded theater, among others.
you can usually say MOST things, you can certainly think or believe anything you want.
but you shouldn't bash an entire product line because of a customer service issue,
and you shouldn't write it in a public forum.
just my .02
Marineland's products are fine and typically fit the needs of most hobbyists,
(to whom their products are marketed in the first place)
I don't mean to be disrespectful of anyone, but it sounds like
a (relatively) minor issue escalated into a screaming match.
(Hope my <insert significant other here> is reading )
Their products are fine, we all have bad days.

i believe it cam be construed as slander if its done verbally. since this post is written then its libel.
