Edit. Below is my response to Marcell's announcement. Here is the thread in question. It is a complaint about customer service. The customer eventually went to arbitration after months of unfruitful correspondence, and there was a settlement in his favor: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=171190 I'm closing this thread, and moving it to general, since there is no more to be discussed As a policy, we do not remove negative customer reviews at the request of a...
