  • Time to get out of that region. Doesn't sound like a business friendly environment.



  • @scottalanmiller I absolutely love it here. The weather is generous, the land is beautiful, and the people are extremely nice. I've lived many places in the US and abroad in other countries, and I find Forsyth County GA to be one of the best places to live. Of course, not everyone here fits that bill, but hey, no place is perfect, is it?

    Remember who this advice is coming from, he really did take the family and leave the country.



  • @travisdh1 I know right!

    Let's not forget the atrocities committed in Forsyth County in the recent past...



  • @RojoLoco Never! I have several friends, including my BF that are of Indian decent ir directly from India and they run in to racism all the time. I fight the fight with them to educate on and eradicate the ignorance behind racism.

    That's a good thing. It's truly humiliating to be from a state where such systemic racism still exists. I dated a couple of girls from Cumming, and I was always weirded out when I was around there. But south Forsyth is all shiny and nice now, lots of high dollar real estate and stuff.

    Sadly, NE Ohio is still a hotbed of racism. Especially the area my wife lived in before we got married. It's even prevalent in the Amish population.

    Some of the conversations with people make my head spin. Mostly not fit to share online for more than the obvious reasons 😞

    You should try San Diego. I love it here (not the traffic)!

    Upstate NY or central PA are the same way. Wonder if there is a correlation that can be made between that and types of jobs available?

    Western NY really is nothing like NE Ohio. Two very different worlds.

  • For those of you who have the ability to assist financially, here is a link to my fundraising page on FundRazr. We would have used the more popular GoFundMe, but it does not allow for raising of funds for legal fees.

    Thanks for those that can, and I appreciate everything tht all are doing in support of us.

    Thanks,

    Nope. It was pretty easy. A CM deleted a post, and I disagreed with him, and at the end of the discussion, when I said I'd leave if not treated better, he indicated that wouldn't be a problem, and he did it with an alarming quickness. It's that last bit, where it was so fast, that made me realize how much value they place on their core users today. Ergo, I'm not a core user.

    I still wear the shirts and polos. Those are some quality cotton threads and clothes can be expensive. Of course, if there were a trade-in program to get Manglolassi or other brands, and they had equal quality, I'd jump at that.

    And trying to cover up that they are insolvent and unable to pay their bills.

    WTF? Insolvent?
    Way to jump the shark. Not paying and not being able to pay are different things. There is nothing about not being able to pay even hinted at in any of this.

    Reality is a shit place to be, it is true, but try staying there a bit more.

    If you are a business and don't pay your bills, it means that your customers have to wonder if you can pay your bills. That's not something you do trivially because whether it is reality or not, it means that your customers start to wonder. It's a sign that something is very, very wrong and the most common cause is that the business is on the brink. It's an SMB, the average SMB is on the brink of insolvency at nearly all times - most go out of business in the first few years. SMBs that can't pay their bills are, most often, unable to do so. This is reality. Does one mean the other, no, that's why I didn't say that. Is it a strong indicator that that is the case? Absolutely. In the SMB world, it's a very strong indicator.



  • Wow, just read the article... This is unreal!
    It's the exact method as any business uses in case of non payment.

    I can't even think of a precedent because it's kind of like a custom 😛 You don't pay, you don't use. It's common sense just like @scottalanmiller said before.

    You can't take a ride on the ferris wheel if you don't buy yourself a ticket..
