ATTENTION: JIM CARTER'S PEOPLE,,, wake up and smell the gear lube! Although 
it's not a good business practice to put off any customer that has just paid a 
fair price for parts that could have been bought at any of a dozen other 
venders, it's really dumb to ignore the hand that helps feed you. Wayne has one 
the top web sites for this industry, and I wonder just how much business Jim 
Carter's has got from the links from Wayne's site. I also wonder how much 
business they would get, if that link, and all the other links to them, from 
personal web sites, were to disappear.
 I'm not saying that Wayne is any more important that any of the rest of us, 
but let's face the facts. Wayne does a lot for this sport of ours, and his 
name should carry a little weight with vendors. If a vendor, (any vendor) will 
allow a person like Wayne to fall through the cracks, it doesn't give much hope 
for the "little guys" of this sport.
 Like Wayne said, maybe this was just a hiccup, in a normally good business, 
but in this limited interest sport, a good vendor can't allow any hiccups, if 
they want to survive. I hope for Wayne's sake, as well as future of Jim 
Carter's, that the "powers to be" will take notice, and make things right, as 
as review their policies, and practices.

Thanks Wayne, for sharing your adventure. (I felt like venting today too, 
just a bad mood)
