attn: Haninger

Of interest to you perhaps. Ran across this today.

"Not only is this Steven Haninger committing illegal defamation against us, he is also trying to ruin our name by mixing us up with different entity like you pointed out. This guy has never purchased from us, by his own admission. Yet he is posting whatever he feels like on a public forum and a CNET admin is actually sympathizing with him. Your first line implies our prices are too good to be true. Your last line says you are questioning our price. Wow. Instead of recognizing illegal libel, you seem to have joined forces with him. "

Not worried at all

My original posting...and it's still there...offered suspicion and not accusation. This was back in April and, later, another person cited a different (and actually higher) price and also asked if this was legit. I had erroneously posted a link to another site that had a similar sounding name where a person had made a complaint. The "offended" party's name was not in the link and that was also noted in the thread.

I still think that Win10 and Office 2016 at $50/$60 is suspicious though I know schools and government agencies can get similar pricing when buying blocks of licenses from authorized vendors that specialize in supporting such folks. Who would not wonder why someone could sell these at 25% of the MS retail? Before I would do such, I'd need to be assured that the product code was a unique one and not shared such as with MAK or volume licensing. The offended party didn't specify any such thing. If these folks want to accuse me of libel or defamation, let them come after me using the evidence here on Cnet. I've never seen where that showing suspicion was illegal. I will gladly accept banishment from Cnet if the admin here sees fit to do so.

No wrong doing by you, Steven.
