Both websites were not active at the same time, at no point has LumensReview been actively posting when we were selling products.

on the Gelman folum the dealers/sellers/manufacturers/staff do it all the time and the Gemans applaud their review efforts, for example reviews by these 6 well-known dealers:

personally i do not condone such practice but am grossed out by their selling tactics :Sp

I’m a bit confused due to all the different topics covered:

1: Is Thrunite’s POP (Point of Presence) in the USA Illumination Supply? (Their website appears to still carry that information, perhaps they have not updated it?)

2: Illumination Supply is a business operated out of someone’s Parent’s house?

POP arrangements are common practice and nothing wrong with that as it can facilitate drop-shipping, nor is there anything wrong with running a home based business, just looking for clarity as I got a bit lost amongst the doughnuts, squirrels, and other background noise.

Regards, TS

Thanks for the reply.

Perhaps that is why your home address is more exposed than you seem to have realized. It popped right up at me as soon as I looked on their site after I first saw this thread:

http://www.thrunite-store.com/customer-service.html

Scroll to the bottom of the page and it says:

Quote:
Phone: (408)740-0846 Thrunite Service Address: 20458 Franklin Ave. Saratoga, CA. 95070 United States

Guess now you can ask Thrunite to remove it and that will be a good test of their level of responsibility.

Regards, TS

They are being sold as though they are perhaps baked, when in fact they are deep fried. Not very healthy. Try putting a donut in the microwave sometime, see if you ever want to eat another.

we’ve had to slowly back away from Thrunite

Probably they won’t be happy to lose their POP in the US, hopefully you’ll update the thread with any changes that arise.

Thanks.

Regards, TS

I’m feeling nauseous just thinking about donuts. :Sp

Yeah, that’s what i thought, do they taste good with Blueberry or something ??. It would appear that they are a Food Group in Germany. Smile

Frankly, I think that’s pretty awesome. You have one of the best torch stores in the world, with great products, prices, and service, and it’s run by a couple enthusiasts as a non-traditional business. Now I definitely want to keep buying from you. Smile
