I've seen your recent comments on A9's latest marketing post, and was wondering if you were going to make a buyers-beware post regarding that fiasco, seeing as the main link to this review is dead now? His actions these past few days have left a bad taste in my mouth, to be sure. :(

I am going to see how it shakes out over the next few months. Generally, I try to only post buyers-beware-style posts if there is a substantial issue with a transaction, such as a seller taking someone's money and disappearing, not completing a transaction, etc. 

In this case, I believe Paul/A9 have been remarkably good in terms of their business (I've made multiple purchases from him and have been very pleased with his products), but I strongly disagree with some of the ideologies and marketing communication that have come to light recently, and said as such on his blog as well in private communication with him (which was civil). 

For the moment, I took down the promotional reviews on my website/blog, because while I think his products are fantastic, the interaction left a bit of a bad taste to me as well. I'll take some time to think over if there is anything else I want to do.

Understood. I feel similarly - previously content with the A9 products I've purchased, but deeply unhappy with Paul's latest communications.

I have trouble with separating art from the artist, I admit, so when I see an artist behaving poorly, I can't see myself consuming any more of their art - especially if that poor behavior is harmful to others or otherwise distasteful.

It sounds like a good plan to keep an eye on the situation for additional developments before acting, so I'll follow suit. Still, I can't envision myself buying anything more from him unless he has a serious attitude change. 8/
