I just got a creepy email from garden of wisdom's Markey rop

I made a comment on this board about GOW making some far fetched claims. Some products such as Vipor Venom (sounds like snake oil to me) among others claim to do some miraculous and some might say far fetched things. Marky from GOW sent me an email asking me to explain myself? I would be happy to forward this email to anyone who would like to read it.

Wow. To think I was going to order the Camillia oil and Meadowfoam oil from them. Luckily I found both items more reasonably priced on Amazon. I feel that we should not be bullied in this website when we give our unbiased opinions. Such behavior by manufacture bullies chills our comfort level and makes us afraid to speak up.

Totally agree w/ others that she should confront people openly. Defintely creepy to PM people.meggan80811/16/2012 1:33PM

Can you forward it to me? Never posted on that message board, might not want to after that...LadyofFluff11/16/2012 1:20PM

Thankyou for that. Perfectly polite, but why that couldn't have been asked on the board I don't knowLadyofFluff11/16/2012 1:28PM

Defending/questioning on the board is fine imo, but a PM... crossing the line. Overall roplushorchid11/16/2012 1:16PM
