Took me longer with the magnifying glass to look at mould and production codes since my eyes are bad. Others I know are ok since I acquired them recently and others are still sealed and will stay that way until I get around to playing them. Ya, it sucks that you live in Canada, but I don't think you can expect Criterion to pay the freight to send them in, but maybe if you have a ton of them they might work with you, but if you show even a fraction of the attitude you show here toward them they might tell you to pound sand. You might even get some credit or coupons towards new titles. Like I said before shite happens and things go wrong and break down over time.
Yeah, just blame me man, blame me for being disappointed, blame me for buying a defective product over and over, blame me from what you think my words mean when you read them here.
Love your life, love your family, love your children, love your friends, love Criterion, love your 5000, and respect people who have been burned off all their life; understand their suffering, have compassion for them.
Not everyone had a good chance in life, just look @ ... I won't go there; you know what I mean.
But have respect for people who had issues with Samsung, with Onkyo, with Criterion, with Sony, with Panasonic, with Disney studios, with Universal studios, with FOX studios, ...not everyone have been happy during their entire lifetime.
Respect people who have something to say deep from their heart, even if you don't like it yourself because you too have been in that situation once and twice, and it's nice to have support around, capitch?
When I send an email to a company in trying to understand and see if there is a common agreement that can be reached for the happiness of everyone, and where the responsibilities laid, do you think that I ain't professional and in due form enough? Do you think that my talking to you right now is reflective @ 100% of my business dealings?
I had a very good education, I'm smart, well outspoken, very professional when it's time, so don't judge me like you wouldn't like to be judged by others yourself. ...That's all man, very simple.
I'll get through it, you too, we all always do. ...But it is also nice to support one another in times like these, understand? ...That's what motivates us to fix the issues, to resolve problems, to help each other, to learn, to share, ....because each one of us has something positive to share, even if some people don't like it. ...There is a solution, a truth somewhere, and we all looking for it.
I'm me man, I'm myself, I express in my own unique way, just like you do yourself in your own unique way. And always with the greatest respect for everyone. ...Keep on track, and all is good.
Don't be afraid to say your discomfort, your mecontentement
, your unhappiness because someone is trying to distort the truth, or interpreted you wrongly, ...try to discuss in an open manner and with respect; then and only then we might find peace and agreement with each other (Criterion versus their customers).
That's all there is to it man.
