That's not a lic just a DBA aka FBNWell, the license you posted in post #77 is still listed as active. Of course that may only be for his barrel sales.
Got it. I can tell you my experience with them was good. They did a pre-purchase inspection on my 2006 Jetta 4 years ago.No, we're just curious as to why they aren't registered with the BAR as required by state law, did they make good on poor repairs, did they make good with Aaron at BoraParts, etc. Oh, and Dee wanted to know what the "Happy Planet Co-op" was about as she likes to support co-ops.
Shaz,Im here to make friends. Im in this for the sport not for the drama.
The snow has been skipping right over us... it has missed us by 50 miles at least 3 times this year. You guys are definitely hurting. Perhaps few west bound freight trains full of snow are in order.OK.
This is off-topic, but any way you can send some of that snow out here to the Sierra Nevadas and Cascades? We really need those storms to build the snowpack, replenish the ground water and fill the reserviors (Lake Oroville is down to about 30% capacity).
I don't know you or have any experience with you. I only know what I've seen here on the forums. Your story seems to be that you had some bad luck with a neighbor, that bad luck spiraled out of control and now you're facing being a pariah in a community for the vehicles you love.
But it's not really that simple, is it? You left customers hanging, you left vendors unpaid, and the community has formed an opinion of you which you don't like. Whether or not any of that is true, that's the community's perception. Ranting and raving the way you are is only solidifying that perception.
If you are truly here to make friends, if you're here for the sport and not the drama, stop stirring up drama. We have a very active and vibrant local community that meets twice a year, spring and fall. Trying to organize your own GTG, given your current community status, is only going to antagonize people and set you up for disappointment.
If you want to be a respected member of this community start acting like one. Contribute to threads without alienating people. Start coming out to Richmond when we do our GTG's, the last one was in October and the next one should be in another couple months. Make what amends you can.
Most importantly, stop responding to people who bring this up. Let the past be the past. You can't change what happened, but by continually responding to people this way you ensure that the conversation will never move on.
It is an interesting fact that you were a short time after this incident selling off "indoor growing lamp"n
So you think I was involved with anything to do with the Santa Cruz article? Well I have told you before and I will tell you again! NO ... Get it thru your head!
Perhaps then you should take it up with the people who wrote the article, this thread has mainly been quoting and linking toSo this thread started over an article which was false.
This has nothing to do with what anyone on these forums are "saying" it has everything to do with what the law requires.Or maybe your saying someone should report to bar every time there is a meet up and have someone one come out and check to see the proper licenses!!
Geezz man get a life ! Im not going to play into your games but enough is enough. Yes i have registered with bar , yes i have resale lic.
You mean like this one?Check out my yelp alternative solutions in campbell. These are my current customer with up to date reviews. It speaks for its self.
I still do business with all my venders I did with when I was up in santa cruz. Ive been a part of the tdi community , owned and been a mechanic on tdi's for 14+ years.
How does it not have "anything to do" with your current business when your "venders" in fact still know you under the same name? If you still do business with all of them the same way you did before, why would it "not have anything to do" with your current business?I have one bad review from a customer from my previous business that is currently in the process of being taken off because it does not have anything to do with my current business.
And who are you?A few you folks must have a lots of free time if you are spending all this time writing baseless lies and accusations about Shaz and his old business. Expecially if you've never met the guy or had work done.
The facts are:
1. He was NOT involved with the activities in the Santa Cruz article
2. He is an honest guy and the best TDI mechanic I have ever had work on my TDI
3. Let's move on... and celebrate TDI's on Feb 22!
I honestly didn't know what to think if it was another alias or someone trying actually trying to make fun of him I mean with the "activities" referred to in number 1 and having location listed as Mendocino County is frankly hilarious!!And who are you?
Hint: Another Shaz alias...
Ah, not completely. Only for a narrow restricted use: "medical" (which wasn't what was happening at that grow)Considering that cannabis is legal in California the only real obstruction here is that the growers were busted for growing and distributing without a license.
hence the rest of the statement about growing without a license, ergo the illegality of it, ergo the building shut down. This does not negate the fact that cannabis is still legal in CA, specificity aside. Growing also has has no direct bearing on the customer service value of the mechanical work performed on our TDI's at this shop while it was still open. Therefore, arguing over whether or not he is now currently a licensed mechanic under a different alias is irrelevant to his given rights to pursue his own happiness and open a business. If it is shady, then that will shine, if it's legit, then that too will shine.Ah, not completely. Only for a narrow restricted use: "medical" (which wasn't what was happening at that grow)
Only in Washington and Colorado is it legal for non-medical use right now.
That sums it up quite nicely. I registered as a vendor myself. And I've never had to use an alias account to promote myself... I'm also fairly certain that registering and using multiple accounts is in itself a ban-able offense. It is certainly very misleading at the very least.From my perspective, I really don't care about the pot grow or Shaz's legal troubles.
Shaz has and continues to register alias accounts to respond to members and give himself shoutouts. This has been confirmed with 100% matching IP searches on more than one occasion. Additionally, he is touting his business on the forums without registering as a vendor.
I say we lock this thread since it isn't doing anybody any good. If Shaz wants to participate on the forums, he can register as a vendor and follow the rules. That's it... Pretty simple.
