Well. When you are the only boardgame distributor in malaysia (read: monopoly), this is what that will happen. The 'distributor' can and will most likely treat his retailers like disposable garbage. Sometimes, even his customers are being treated badly by him too. Is this the sort of treatment you want? Will you, as a customer, still buy games from such an ungrateful person after he treated you no better than a pariah, being yelled at & humiliated in public, & in front of other gamers? Has he forgotten that its we gamers who made him, in his own words, filthy rich & laughing all the way to the bank (refer to bgg forum)? Think about it for a second. Have you ever heard of anyone who belittles & shouts at his customers besides dear Edwin?

I think we should form a cartel and get together to purchase games exclusively online. What do you guys think? Suggestions? We can combine our purchases and order online through one person (preferably one with paypal account, eg. jack208 or aanemesis). Suggestions?

hey, this idea is not without merit! With the US dollar at 20% less than 3.80 and there's no visible reduction in the current local game pricing (so that means they are still pegged at 3.80), there's viability in this.



The 20% saving in USD alone can cover the custom taxes if any. And combined purchases bring down the shipping cost.

hi all, I've just realized that some of your posts (two from c_mun and one from Dave on Tom Vasel's visit) were stuck in the Moderation queue (mybad that I did not check there). I hope this did not incorrectly gave the posters the opinion that their posts were censored. [:P]



I've now released both c_mun's posts (see page 1 of this thread) and Dave's (see Damansara Meetup where he talked about Tom's visit to Mage Cafe).



I only censor marketing-spam and not thots/opinions/contents. [:#]

Heng, please understand that even though Edwin treated you like gold, it doesn't mean I had that special treatment too. In fact, I was being pushed around and threatened (over a small issue) like I was no better than a dog. I was in fact considering a lawsuit against him for constant harassment & defamation.

while i won't comment on the 'macedwin's golden boy' comment, i would like to request that issues be resolved only between parties directly concerned.



i believe that when someone slings mud in the open, one does not have to follow suit. defend yourself and let everyone else make up their mind.



the best way to settle an issue is to talk to the other person directly. if talking still does not settle things, you still do not need to sling mud behind people's back. let other people interact with both parties and make up their own mind.
