[DML] This should have come out sooner.

If a member of this list isn't happy with a vender I don't understand 
why it took so long to find out.

David --- I did not want to post anything negative about Joe while he 
had my car. After I got my car back it did take me a while to 
discover all the work that was not performed and after that was the 
court case. I was even hesitant to post anything now, while I am 
trying to recover my losses, but I did want to alert others as soon 
as I felt I could, since this could take quite a while. 

I think some people do not want to advertise the type of work that 
they have done on their cars. They would prefer to keep the work 
history to themselves to use as they see fit, when they sell the car 
in the future. So even if they lost some time and money, they would 
prefer not to make it a public event. The one individual that Rob 
Grady mentioned in his letter, that I posted on my court case 
website, emailed me and was a bit unhappy that I mentioned his car 
and publicised work that had been done on his car. Also I blacked out 
his address for him (my mistake). Other than that he was supportive.

But most of all, I think many of us are hesitant to take on one of 
the "DeLorean Gods". We depend on them for help, parts, and sevice. 
You have to be willing to not do business with that vendor before you 
post anything negative. People in the Atlanta area, where Joe is 
located, did not historically have many choices for service; this 
complicates things and makes the decision more difficult.

Maybe people think that the other vendors may be less willing to do 
business with you if you are seen as a bad actor or a risk; 
especially if you are seen as someone who might take your complaints 
public. I wonder if the vendors are going to look at me a little 
diferently now.

I also wonder if people will think that somehow I brought this on 
myself....."Not DMCJOE!!!, there must be something wrong with this 
Bowman guy." A natural reaction given that I am an unknown and DMCJOE 
is seen as someone who has answered many questions on the list and 
who's byline is "We're here to help you".

All this being said, I appreciate your encouragement to others to 
speak out, but it can be a difficult decision.

Regards --- Chris
