Let's draw a line under this now.

An active promotion (at least a halfway decent one) wouldn't show the ad then proceed to criticise the business in question.
If you can't say something nice about Pentax, you won't say anything at all.

Apparently.

Exactly!

If the guy was pimping Jessops or Fuji then it would have been obvious to anyone with any common sense that posting a screen shot of the Jessops advert with the Fuji camera's at 50% off, and then criticizing Jessops isn't exactly pimping.

Sorry, but I feel that the decision to remove the post was petty and unnecessary, and treating Polchraine, and the rest of the forum users like kids.

We're adults, treat us like adults please.

If you're not a kid, you'll recognise that not everything in life goes the way you want it to, and move on.

It really isn't a very big issue.

That's an option, but it's the easy one.

Ken asked everyone to draw a line under this.

I would point out that no-one has been prevented from saying anything in this thread, so there's not really a lot to be indignant about.

This is now the time to finally draw this to a close as all that's happening is that you are repeating yourselves.

Let's move on to something else now.
Best regards, John

No, Jessops are still not selling Pentax, for whatever reason.

When I went to a Jessops store and asked them if they had any Pentax cameras, the answer was NO, and they wouldn't be stocking any either. 2 questions
1/ Why
2/ Why is the forum even bothering to discuss Jessops when they don't bother to stock the best quality camera there is.
Quality is what me buy Pentax.

As I understand it, when Jessops went (or nearly went) bankrupt a couple of years ago, Pentax - wisely - refused to extend them further credit. Nikon and Canon however did, as they could afford to take the hit (and probably did).

Jessops prefer "big" brands because it means the staff don't actually have to understand what they are selling, just shift boxes onto unsuspecting punters who see Canon/Nikon adverts everwhere...

Just consider them the McDonalds of photography...

polchraine posted a comment before you but I've no idea who removed and I don't care to be honest.
Lets just drop the matter since it was just going so well on this forum at the start of the year and now all these tensions are coming back again

on at least one forum I've been part of over the years, just about everyone who has posted in this thread would have been banned by now
you don't have to be mad to post here
