TX800B Thanks Sully and the rest of the IH community for the heads up on this cocksucker POS.

You just saved me from spending money on a rollbar for one of my 800's.

Ok, I admit I wanted this back up top. I read everything posted on this topic (3 hours of reading) and am furious there was no resolution.

Creepy196 Hey Sully...Haven't been on the board for a LLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGG time. Checked in and noticed you were on line. Any news at all on your problems with that Comer fawker? Anybody ever punch him in the gonads for you???

Yep, I saw the sully-signal shining in the sky, and came running.

What changes in chit-chat? I stopped by there too, I saw Gary and Paz bickering with each other, some AW looking for recognition from anonymous strangers on the interweb, and Roxy being a bitch to some noob. Looked pretty normal to me.

DamBigBuck Ya know, I was looking at pictures of the 2007 RMIHR and saw some photos of Gryphin doing the sled pull. I imagine he'll be there again this year.

Good Golly Miss Molly. I disappear for eons, and come back to find I've STILL got the first thread on the page.

Yes, I have been away from the PBB for a while, and my Scouts have been sitting idle in my driveway. Real life has unfortunately gotten in the way for the time being.

To sum the matter up, there has been no resolution. Comer is still a Thief. At this point, enough time has passed that I will be unable to get any resolution from the Denver County Small Claims Courts, even if I was able to track Comer down, have him served, and take time to travel to Denver for a court appearance that would certainly find him guilty, but not enforce any restitution. If he won't do the right thing now, I have no confidence that he would do it just because a judge "said so." Unfortunately, that's the way the court systems work. And I have neither the time nor the money to pursue that avenue at this point.

It's a hard pill to swallow, and a lot of money to write off. But at this point, I can't imagine that Comer would ever be man enough to return my funds.

All I can do, is make sure that anyone else who is considering having him do work, is aware of what a crooked and dishonest person he is, and recommend that they talk to a real vendor, like the Ismails instead.

I would appreciate it if the rest of the community took this approach as well. Please don't use my issues with a known thief as an excuse to bash the BB or the folks there. Let's all take the high road.

And in the meantime, if anyone happens to bump into Comer, punch him in the gonads for me and tell him he owes me money.

TheCopperCowboy Wow! What a dusty gem! Still business as usual over here. Since Sully didn't do anything or enough on the matter, he paid for a very expensive lesson. I bookmarked this thread, forgot about it myself, then been getting emails of new posts. Nothing has changed here, he's relocated and a yellow Scout is still parked in front of a T-Shirt place by 6th and I-25. I find the whole situation sad and pathetic. Oh, I'm having a blast building my new TJ junk.

Yeah that has to be right up there in the top ten of all time and it came right out of Mr. Comer's mouth. In the end I spent almost two years and lost $5000 dollars dealing with that dirty rat. Took him to court, hired two separate lawyers, had to pay round trip air fare from Germany to CO Springs for the court date, and tried for several more months to get the DA's office to press criminal charges against John Comer to no avail.

I'm not gonna bash the BB cause I've gotten a lot of good help there over the last few years and still log on frequently, but facts? Well IMHO this guy deserves just about every rotten thing and assumption that people make about him at this point....of course having been robbed of $5000 does tend to bias my opinion

Additional facts concerning Sully's case and where he is now
Guess you missed that part of my response.
So is this just a personal attack or what.
If so than tell me what I have done to you or any person on here, other then try to constantly give to this community.
All you guys just seem to be so bent on looking for a fight.
It's an us against them.
Pretty typical. Even if you agree with someone they can turn it to a negative.

When did it become this way? I think you need to spend more time on the trail and less on the computer.
And I'm covering for a crook?
Are you kidding me?
Is there anything anywhere to shed even a scrap of evidence that I personally tried to cover for a crook?
I take that very personal given the title and position the US Navy has entrusted me with. I consider myself to be very Honorable and raised my kids to be the same. So please pick a different course if you choose to personally attack me. I have not spent the last 26 years defending this country to be accused of being dishonest.

Have you read anything posted. If something was being covered up ...wouldn't it be smarter/easier to just delete it?
01-22-2008 10:34 PM
Binder I didn't read anything on the BB but from what I've read here it seems to me the thread should have stayed open. If someone posts out of line then delete their post and leave the thread as the next guy could have something worth reading about.......
Maybe it's just me...... $0.02

You guys are totally missing the boat.

If it bothered "us" then it would have been deleted and nobody would see it.

Was it deleted?
no
It was closed to keep it from going astray but left up so all could read it.

As I stated in the first post...
You need to have facts.

But you guys sure tried real hard to take everything I said out of context and try to put a negative spin on it.

Not to mention it must be all the BB fault.
How dare they close a thread.(and still leave it up for all to read)

KC, I was glad to see you bring it back up. We need to look out for each other. But we also need facts to move forward. You did right. Thank you.

It went south from there. The fact of how it happened are in the thread. Additional facts concerning Sully's case and where he is now, is not.

Just look at the last post date prior to 22 Jan 2008........
22 Jan 2007!!!!!

I may be wrong but I think there was more recent concern and discussion on the BB.

So those on their soap box ...please step down, and think or ask before talking ill of others. I'm sure you'll get an answer.

But I'm just a cronie so what do I know.

Which brings me to my next point -- If the BB prides itself on being a "family" place - then why does it have so many skeletons in the closet?

So much is not allowed to be talked about, so much is swept under the rug -- Maybe keeping your head in the sand is more like a real 'family' - but it sure isn't a healthy family.

Outstanding.

There is no better way to keep this from happening to someone else (Other than just putting Comer out of business....).

Now if people would just do some research before dealing with someone online, over the phone, etc. 'Cause I'm sure others have been swindled since Sully started this thread years ago...

looks like Sully hasn't been on for 4 months.
01-22-2008 04:17 PM
guidolyons I bet if it was HIS engine and HIS $2,000 that he (the mod who locked the thread) was CHEATED out of, he'd be singing a different tune.

If bumping the thread to the top every so often keeps another person from getting screwed, all the better.

So Sully, did you ever get any resolution?

It also keeps the memory alive of this activity so hopefuly he wont bone the next guy. It is amazing in a thread like this what pops up. I would have saved myself some trouble and $$ on a deal or two if I'd seen some of that beforehand.

Apparently if more than one guy says he's been ripped off by a vendor he's guilty of "bandwagoning". Go figure.

I'll bet good ol' Charlie Wenzel is wishing he would have pulled his stunt on the BB. He'd have gotten away with it and not be nearly as famous.
I didn't realize you were that infamous person whose engine fell into a lake. That has got to be one of wildest excuses I have ever heard - and I've heard plenty.

It such a shame that so many of those shady vendors are part of our small IH industry. Its real simple - advertise a product or service, sell it, and ship / deliver it in a timely manner. I don't know why certain vendors find these simple business practices so difficult. It makes my job both easier and harder at the same time.

But it appears to me that Sully last talked of a scout over a year ago.

KC posted that it appears he(Comer) is still up to his old ways but didn't post specifics.

And Bill did not lock it. There is a moderator team in place that makes decisions.
Several are regulars here also.

It's sounding more like a lynch mob/bandwagon then facts to me.

I won't dispute that it appears Comers site is still up and he may still be doing some business.
But no one has talked to anyone on the other end...yet
I havent been to the BB for years because of the Mods and a lot of the users/low tech. So I have no idea about this current thread or Mod stuff.

I do know that Comer did talk about this a bit at first then chose to bail/not defend his actions. His reasons are his own but why would I do business with him? I also liked the stuff Sully put out in this thread when many others just put up garbage/smack talk and speculation.
01-22-2008 09:30 AM
Shadow man The FACTS have already been posted 100 times over the 10th power.

The accused won't even attempt to defend himself as he is guilty way beyond a reasonable doubt.

If it takes a lynch mob to get justice, so be it. I'm here in Denver now. I'll be happy to supply the rope and pull.

As far as implying something about KC, DON"T go there. Don't even try.

As far as Bill T. Yes, he has a reputation too. Not a good one IMO.

RMIHR. Since Comer is gone from it, supposedly, I honestly wish them a very successful upcoming event and many more.
