To Chris Magness,
Your characterization is scewed toward a vain imagination.
Again, I never received the boots, period. Therefore, I could not return them, now could I? Should I seek to spell that out for you in a language you are familiar with?
The size I ordered was correct; yet, of no importance or relevance in light of what I just stated. Incidently, there was no "warning" with regard to returns. In fact, when I asked about that possiblity, I was told that I would be required to pay return postage, and the correct size would be ordered & shipped. Standard business practice.
However, were I told, or were it stated on their web site that there are no returns for reasons of size, I would not have sent them my check. Who would? What kind of business operates like that? Your false ascertion comes from Jonas' fog & evade tactics that are failing in light of common sense and the truthfulness of what I have already declared.
Further, prior to ordering them, I had opportunity to try a pair 12 1/2, they were just shy of the promised land. Having talked with several people about the sizing of these boots, I opted for the 13. Which, coincidently, is the same size of my other plastic boots.
Chris, there is but one defense for an accusation of libel; the truth! I have no concerns. Take it or leave it.
In my opinion, no lying thief is good for any community, that includes the climbing one. Chris, you believe what you want to believe, way down there; because up here it's just more of the same bull Jonas has been spewing at me. Nonsense built upon more of the same.
By the way, "store credit" would be a legitimate means toward settling a hypothetical such as you posted. I'm all to happy to do business with "Mom & Pop", just not Bonnie and Clyde.
Hey you guys--this sort of debate is a waste of everyone's time. Like I said, you can take what I said, or leave it. At this moment I don't really care. I just thought I was doing some honest minded folks a service.
Chris, as Jack Nicholson once said from a reversed position, "you can't handle the truth." It's alright; they had me believing them too.
