Thank you kindly for paying for the Bonsalopes, as mentioned in our private emails, I completely understood that this was an oversight by you and as I had pretty much worshipped the ground you walked on for three decades, chasing you for payment was the last thing I was going to do, I was honoured that you'd shown and interest in them in the first place.
But as also mentioned, when someone starts to throw their weight around and getting involved with what should have been a private issue between Bob and I, and then proceeds to spread the issue on other forums and therefore bring my name and my company's name into disrepute, this REALLY gets my heckles up and I will fight back! It's the former Royal Marine in me, I don't take sh*t from anyone! Plus your 'ironic' comment on the video, (which ironically was a spoof of actual footage previously online of people stealing from us at a convention) was totally uncalled for and could be considered a form of bullying, which I will not tolerate and should not happen in our art!
So I apologise sincerely for the accusations of theft Richard, when I knew it was most likely just an oversight, but please think of the consequences of your actions in the future, words can be a powerful weapon and wars have been fought over them.
P.S. - Philippe Billot - Yes, I am totally aware what Bonsalope's translates to in French, which is probably why we sell more there than in any other country!
