Please do not mock me on this issue. I consider myself a victim in this ordeal as a direct result of the actions of this vendor. I would not want anyone else to have to go through this. You may scoff at this notion, but this is how I feel. I carry no grudge as it is defined.
grudge: a feeling of ill will or resentment.
You have implied this before. You also previously acused me of being on a vendetta. The facts are simple, nothing has changed. Dan of Yuuki-Cha definitely wronged me. TeaChat was his "weapon." He used the forum to entrap and indirectly attempted to censor me. Then he proceeded to hold my money (technically mine and other members, 100's of dollars), not ship goods paid for, and only returned the money once I threatened further actions including reporting to PayPal.
victim: 2. a person who is tricked or swindled; duped
After he used and abused TeaChat, he has never once responded to any contact from me. Including when he held my money.
These are the condensed facts.
Therefore, as both the victim and the moderator of this forum, it is legitimate to respond to requests for recommendations about Yuuki-Cha in order at least make sure the inquiring member is aware ... but also to remind others that Yuuki-Cha has never made this right, yet I am always available.
This is also a reminder that giving an honest opinion about Yuuki-Cha's products can land you in a similar position. THIS is the worst part about this.
Grudge or vendetta, no. If this was a grudge or a vendetta, I would be on every tea forum, facebook, twitter, and any other method that I could inflict harm on this vendor. I am only reporting it right here, where it all began!!! I stick to the facts and effects. If I was acting on a grudge, I would abuse my "powers" and ban the word Yuuki-Cha from TeaChat ...
Sadly, I am sure this leaves a bad taste in the mouth of Yuuki-Cha fans, I feel badly for those of you. But I make no apologies. I did not choose to be a "victim."
