    A real shame for Shyam. He has posted all the email correspondence on his website as well. I wonder whether this and Suzie Jones departure are all part of some restructuring within EG.

    Matt, this is one of those things that, if we tell you, then we have to kill you.

    My point was just that there has been enough bad blood on the forum recently, and things are just settling down. Let's let that happen, please.

    If you guys want to discuss the the economics of whatever sector, please do so in the General section.

    I really don't want to shut down this thread, so please no one get up in arms, okay? There is no need for that. BTW, I think that I have been very fair here, and attacking me is not going to help anything.

    Thanks.

    Fok.

    I think we all agree with this sentiment.

    Respectfully Fok, you brought up economics, not us. No one here mentioned the margins of the luxury goods business until your post. We were simply saying that we think Shyam, a trusted and reliable provider to this Forum, got a very raw deal.


    I can't see anything that remotely warrants shutting down this thread. And as for being fair, you voiced an opinion on the merits of the situation and people responded in kind. Which seems pretty fair to me.

    Hi Aportnoy and others,

    I have no dog in this fight. I just want to keep things civil, okay. That's all.

    Fok.

    With all due respect, you are the one who brough up the difficult economics of the retail industry.

    IMO, this was as badly handled as the Vass incident. These things should be done in a way that nobody knows about. The first order should have been allowed as it included special orders, and then the relationship should have been ended gracefully. The same thng goes for Vass. Public strongarming is not going to win you any customers, which is what the retail business is all about.
