Agreed. I wasn't talking about vendors, however. I was talking about
person to person interaction. An example would be you and I getting
together for lunch, and you mention you really like the new DMCH
suspension you've installed on your car. A week later people are
discussing the suspension on the DML and I say, "Yeah, Gus said he
really likes his." Then you get mad at me.

I don't think that's reasonable and I don't think it makes any sense.
A reasonable person would not think it necessary to keep such a
conversation private unless requested to do so. Obviously, this
changes when you're a business dealing with customers.

Actually, I wasn't talking about Rob at all. Another individual posted
a message regarding someone getting upset with him for divulging work
that had been done on that someone's car.
