Re: Snake Oil

They buy them and similar because they are under the influence of bullshit, that is one of the main reasons this forum exists - to counter it.

Re: Snake Oil

It has changed because of the internet - obviously. It is just the industry has to catch up with a bit of reality and stop believing the bullshit. A 20mm 1amp glass fuse, which is a classic example of what is being replaced inside a product costs £0.32p, they also have makers mark up distributors m...

Re: Snake Oil

Its a £130 major up-grade, if it was anything simple like a set of squash balls on a corian chopping board then it would be praised, the fact its a fuse causes many to poo poo it. Because it is a fuse, do you know what a fuse is, well it is something designed to fuse, so if they all fuse (burn out)...

Re: Boring ?

Haven't you realised AoS is ALL about Marco's ego. He wants to be king / dictator of something and have no one question him or interfere with his parading his life style and sick smut around. Remember my first nickname for him, Il Duce, that is him to a T, AoS is his little Italy to dominate. I am ...
