Knowing David and having met Colin, I suspect it is a simple confusion of emotion. Don’t look for the reality as it’s probably obscured by things that are not true or real.

Never use a courier that has monkeys as van drivers. :evil:

The majority of couriers are very good at getting the item as far as the delivery drivers van. :)

Personally, I find most couriers who deliver to me are OK. My favourites are Parcelforce, DPD and UPS.

They get monkeys because they pay peanuts.

TBH, I don’t understand why Colin has brought David into the story. Was he in some way connected with the amp return? Or is it just a chance to have a pop at him while you have a platform?
I think the fact that he (David Brook) took the time call Colin a "Drama Queen" in posts on two different forums whilst adding nothing to the subject matter was what got Colin's goat, as it would have done mine. He had no interest in Colin's post other than using it as a platform to leave a mean-spirited comment.
Being a "bluff Northerner," as has been mentioned only goes so far as an excuse before you end up sounding like Jeremy Clarkson, but without the good manners and the sunny disposition. :lol:

The thing is, without Colin actually telling us who he is pointing the indeterminate finger at, there is nothing of any use in the post other than shit happened. AFAIK, shit happens to most of us now and then, And sorry, but if Colin feels its worth posting about this on three different forums, I sort of agree with David on this one.

What should be noted is motivation. Colin has been a victim of this industry and the crooked people who are in it who exploit if they can. Colin has been exploited on at least three occasions in the past, mainly 'cos he is a nice guy who trusts too much.

The last episode with TQ was disgraceful and should be called as such. When at a Yorkshire Hi-Fi club meet I had a brief exchange with David Brooks about it where he had showed he had been taken in by all the lies that had been told about Colin by his crooked ex TQ partner, I didn't bother to argue, as David is a TQ agent I saw it as pointless.

That is what is behind this saga.

To me Colin is like the grandad you never had. He is kind, sensetive and trusting. All good qualities but they leave you open to abuse sadly. Colin needs our support and compassion after getting fucked over like he has in the past. Unfortunately most are incapable of showing this. It may be a dog eat dog world out there but surely we dont all have to be so insensitive and selfish.

The biggest problem is me, I do trust folk I was brought up that way by my lovely kind hearted Dad. Also I am to be blunt not only dyslexic but on the lower scale of autism. My dear friend and now wife has always known this and is blunt and honest to me, I understand that black is black etc.
Now because of these tiny problem I can be easily misled by what sounds like honest people now with Maria at my side this happen less and less thank Wottan.
Her deceased Husband and a darling friend was also straight with me, I miss people like that you knew where you stood.
There are few still lurking in the background in my life like the two Alan's and one past Inca Tech dealer Ian.

So folk out there who have never been treated with any training in kindness and understanding are basically being shit heads because they have never had this skills taught to them by loved one's and I suspect are right twats in the personal lives also.

Granddad I wish I love kids but it will never be. So who is up for adoption ? send CV to telluriumq@gmail.com :mrgreen: :twisted:
It can be done so imagine it.

Dave is a decent bloke. He posts out a lot of hifi stuff by courier. Perhaps he could post (or PM to Colin) some helpful advice on how to follow up this particular incident and what to do to have the best chance of avoiding a repeat.
