    I look the web page from link in this topic, much of this designs is enough for give me mal de tête, also much design look similar of spermatozoom! [​IMG]
    IIRC correctly, 'Carlo Franco' was the name of Chuck's grandpa....perhaps they didnt want to turf it for emotional reasons - but ya, from a business viewpoint, I agree with you.
    I have much doubt this person Franke is of Italy, is not normal name Italian, you are sure is not of Deutschland or Österreich?
    Nothing negative from me. Is there a halo smiley? There ought to be. Besides,[​IMG] I[​IMG] want[​IMG] Audrey[​IMG] back[​IMG] just[​IMG] as[​IMG] much[​IMG] as [​IMG]the [​IMG]next [​IMG]guy. [​IMG]
    You speak this name Audrey, you can to tell who is this person? You have make sex with this person, or want make sex with this person?

    there was a backstory to that which I can't recall that involved changing the family name when immigrating to the US...something to that effect.

    The email I received was from when I signed up for their newsletter on their website. I have a different email address for every website I visit. So I can track who sells my email address. I have been doing this for 8 years now and it works quite nicely to track where spam comes from.

    Is possible this persons fabricate this name only for to sell thing made in Italy?
    In the world exist much restaurant with cuisine they will to claim is Italian, but is no really Italian, maybe menu have few Italian word, restaurant have Italian name derivation, operate by Albanian and other!

    I for one think any mention of CF here is unnecessary except for the usual barbs.

    Strange thing is that I've never ordered anything from them or even contacted them, yet, I got the same email. I suspected AAAC sold my email address to them. [​IMG]
    A preposterous and unsubstantiated accusation. And I wont say more in this thread.
    I did receive the email. May be I jumped to conclusion too quickly. I don't know exactly how they got my email address, I just used process of elimination and AAAC seemed to be the most obvious. P.S. Are you one of the Malindae?
    Ha, no I am not one of the Malindea [​IMG], but the implications of your Post was that is that AAAC and the actual administrators of the site, or those that had access to the email list may have benefited from selling that list which is something that Neither Andy nor any of the (current) moderators that would have access to the list would do. I am pretty sure that Andy himself got burned as well with this whole CF matter.
    I know what you are Definitely-Not-Hinting-At there, and it is an interesting thought that I certainly hope is untrue.

    Hmm... it seems Andy and Chuck are friends on FaceBook. Personally, I believe Andy has the utmost integrity. He has supported and stood up for many people. There's no question in my mind about Andy's motivations - he's trying to do what is right. I firmly believe that. On the other hand, Chuck has a serious perception issue he must address. It's not unlike the circumstances Tiger Woods finds himself in now. Chuck has to be honest and forthcoming with those who were previously hurt with his irresponsible actions if he hopes to resurrect his internet business. Honestly, if I were him, I wouldn't even try. It appears he has a good day job. Why sign up for the enormous task of relaunching Carlo Franco? Under the circumstances, I think his attempt to relaunch his business would be a full time job for several people who have the business acumen to do so. What he is attempting is not for the uncommitted or the faint of heart. I don't mean to judge based on past performance, but it's all we have to go by. He has wavered in the face of adversity before when the task was not as daunting. How will he handle the current set of challenges? History indicates he does not have the resources to succeed. Andy's right though... we should not jump to conclusions and should give the guy a chance to prove himself. Personally, I don't think he has a prayer and wonder why in the world would he try.

    That should be quite simple. R E F U N D $ O W E D.

    As an aside, why is Alex so intent on seeing Chuck get back on his feet?

    Why wouldn't he want to try again?
    Sure he has a lot of work to do, but if he wants to make things right and has a chance, I think he should give it a shot.
