David Rhodes wrote:Yossie & David,
I posted my reaction to how your posts int his thread offended me and possibly libeled/slander me
I'm asking you politely to delete your post in the next 24 hours or I will seek any all remedied legally within my means
including a potential law suit under Israeli and american law and possible UK as well
and sanctions within the industry that can muster
the ball is in your court
play nice with me and other wine professionals or there could be serious ramifications
enthusiasts ans hobbyists are encouraged to express their interest on wines but to talk about people's ethics and morals in the industry is crossing the line
if you ever accepted a free taste or bottle of wine you are just as culpable as anyone else
its just a matter of degree
I want to move on and waste no more of my valuable time on this topic so you can either cease and desist and delete these kinds of conversations or I can see if there are any lawyers looking for work and there typically are...this isn't a threat its a warning...

Thank you for taking this action. The tone of this thread is precisely why I have continued to remain as a "lurker" instead of participant in the wine forum since Rogov died. I have enough stress in my professional life. I don't need this in something that should be purely for pleasure and personal enrichment!
Jonathan D wrote:Hi Robin - Thank you so much for doing this. I echo Mark's comments completely. There is no place in this forum for people to make legal threats, as unfounded and utterly frivolous as they may be.
Craig Winchell wrote:See? That's why I didn't want to be the moderator, and evidently it's a good thing I refused. I would have just allowed him to continue posting, and allowed the group to make him irrelevant, if they so desired, by ignoring/not responding to his posts. Sooner or later, he would have left on his own. Even a troll can occasionally come up with a valuable comment or post.
