...that someone is getting/has had a bit of a raw deal here. I think that all those who have conversed or dealt with Eddie through this forum would see him as an honest and forthright person who takes great pride in his good reputation.
It is certainly human nature to 'get even' but he isn't trying to do that. He just wants to show that he isn't the bad apple that he is now being made out to be. It must be very frustrating to have communications ignored and accusations directed and have little recourse.
An opinion was made on another part of this board which may have been misinterpreted; the end result is that one of the most knowledgeable and upfront people is now 'banned'. All of us should sit back and think about how we would feel and what we would do if we were Eddie in this situation.
It's too easy to side with who is seen to be strongest or rather in favour, or just to side with the majority. No doubt this is due to the fear of being ousted in the same way Eddie has been.
It's too easy to scorn people for their public behaviour. Just think honestly what you would do if it were you.
I remember before Ashford took over TZ; nobody had a good word to say about them and their business practices. Once TZ had been acquired, Ashford could do no wrong. Ashford sells TZ and people enjoy the company's fall from financial grace! Talk about sheep!
Bob and Eddie have their differences to settle, maybe they will, maybe they won't. Bob's gone quiet, Eddie is no longer welcome in this club. Eddie wants no more than to put his name back into correct and deserved equlibrium. You can't blame him for that, he is one - the MWR club is many.
