So, I've been a member of WAYALIFE for a while. I always enjoyed the videos on YouTube. They all seemed like great people (and for the most part they are). Tack me up on the list of people who pissed off fearless leader Kim Jong Eddie (FL from here on)
He posted an email a customer sent him about not receiving a complete order. In all fairness, FL offered the guy a refund and he missed $0.50. Guy emails bitching about $0.50, it's refunded too. Little mistake w/e right... Eddie felt the need to toss this crap up on a public forum to get some sort of payback against the guy for saying his oversight of the full amount to refund seemed shoddy. You screwed up the guys order, then screwed up his refund. That is shoddy. "Something that is badly made or done". Yup works well here. But FL was butt hurt none the less.
The following was my comment on this issue:
"I get that mistakes happen sometimes. I feel like you did the right thing, offering a refund. He asked for the decals to just be sent, which I feel is also fair.
I don't get the point of you posting this up though. It's like those dog shaming photos you see everywhere. I get being upset, concerning his response to you, because that was a little bit out there...but this issue is between you, the owner, and him, your customer.
Seems a little childish/vindictive to post this up, after you reached a resolution with him.
I've been in and out of these forums and a WAL fan for years. Whether it was following some great builds, searching for solutions for little issues here and there, or watching the amazing JK Experience and other off-road videos. But now that I've made the attempt to be more active on the forums, I see a lot crazy stuff. It's like this site is reminiscent of an old western movie. What is there to gain from dragging him out into the street? For everyone to see you set an example? "Have an issue, or don't agree with something...let's see what the entire forum thinks"
Like the previous people stated, for those who understand all you and Cindy do for this group and how you two keep it running smooth...think this kind of reaction to a minor slip up is ridiculous. The ones who don't get that...don't matter. So there's no need to publicly shame this guy. Unless you just like publicly shaming people."
Fair statement right? Saying hey, your kinda being an ass overtly sensitive to this guy's mean words to you.
Needless to say FL and his minions jump all over me and call me numerous names, including self-righteous, while they crucify me disagreeing with them. The irony in this logic was only lost on them haha They say I'm being sensitive and dot get why I'm sticking up for this guy. According to what I said, saying he was overreacting and later calling him a douche for getting bent out of shape over $0.50, I thought I was talking about Eddie, not defending some random I don't even know. But I digress...
So this goes on, I even suck up my pride I send FL my phone number so he can call me and we can clear the air and move past all this. He refuses because he doesn't want to hear me preach to him. I was wanting to explain myself/thought process and apologize if he felt like I was attacking him. But he wouldn't do it. He banned me, but not before this happened:

She passed away 2 years ago, almost to the day...so I doubt that can happen. It's best not to mention someone's mom, as you don't know just how offensive that can be. Hope you feel wonderful about that comment now. You sure showed me huh? Asshole.
This is the best news I have heard so far from your self righteous mouth. Glad she's not around to see how you have become a self proclaimed messiah. To bad the best part of your dad dripped down your mom's legs leaving your sorry ass inside of her..........good night asshole
This is acceptable on WAYALIFE, Eddie said nothing to him about it and left that comment showing. This is acceptable to that pretentious prick, but me saying that airing out your personal dirty laundry, of customer interactions, isn't professional is enough to get me kicked off the forum. Why? Because it's "MINE AND I CAN DO AND SAY WHATEVER I WANT".
You can read it all yourself right here:
And here's the original thread he posted the convo with the customer (they moved them because more people were arguing with me than saying he was right):
You'll have to delete the space I put between the : and //.
