There's a lesson to be learned here folks.
There is no "ambiguity" on the internet.
Think twice about what you have to say, and to whom ... before hitting that [Reply] or [Upload] button.

Be responsible and mature ... which is pretty much the theme of this entire post.

If a bunch of guys like us can do this kind of "big brother" thing, just imagine what the FBI (or similar agencies) can do.

You should probably do some research before spouting your next tantrum. Slander is oral defamation of character and libel is written defamation. While Jon appears to be guilty of neither, you seem close to the latter. Please don't think that posting such messages under a pseudonym provides you with protection. (See Melvin v. Doe, for example).

post by "MAN"

My name is Jess and I'm the customer service manager for Coker Tire. I owe an apology to Jon and this forum for the post made by "MAN". One of my overzealous sales representatives, Andy, took it upon himself to post this response. The post was not made by Mr. Coker, as he is out of the country at this time. Again, please accept my apology for this unauthorized post by one of my employees, he has been disciplined accordingly as this action was completely out of line.

That apology was not acceptable.

I think you guys are doing exactly what Stephen Andrews tried to do, and exactly what Corky Coker tried to do. Pass the blame to someone else, or to a lower-level fall guy. Someone needs to take responsibility for this scandal. If you think you can out-spin us, you're nuts.

Corky had indeed better be out of the country. Off of the planet might be a better option for him right now.

I would like to speak with a representative from SEMA regarding this situation. And not some lower-level chump. Whoever's in charge.

After reading Coker's blog: http://blog.coker.com/ , I can see his deep ties to SEMA. His blog says: "I recently served as Chairman of the Board of SEMA from 2003 through 2005." Is that true? Please, please tell me it's not. Because I am beginning to see the connections here between Coker Tire, Gas Monkey Garage, and SEMA.

Also, if there's anyone who has not completely died of laughter yet, read the first two sentences in Corky's blog: Here's a screenshot:




Coker, Coker, Coker. Honest, honest, honest, honest.

Jess:

Thank you for that. It helps restore some faith.

I hope the disciplinary action takes into account the understandable motive to defend Coker Tire and Corky. The person's action was certainly wrong, including the hypocrisy of posting a real name and attacking the person owning that name while making the offensive post under a pseudonym. It is interesting to note Mr. Coker inspires loyalty in employees.

Just an FYI

I live outside of Chattanooga, and have met Mr. Coker at some of the Chattanooga hotrod shows and Cruise ins but met is all I don't know him. He seems to be a decent person from my limited interactions. I do know he has a good reputation and is well liked in the local Hotrod community. The post from him didn't seem like the person I met. An additional piece of information is that "Honest Charlie's" is a local old style hotrod shop and everyone in there goes by "Honest Whatever" I've been in the shop a time or two but not done much business with them. I have no idea if Honest Charles is in any way related in a business to Coker Tire or the family of businesses.

All that Said I agree with Jon about GMGs Marketing Tactics they owe a lot of apologies. While I can admire the workmanship, engineering, and creative thought in this style of rods I have to agree with Classix about the TEA.

Corky Coker may indeed be a fine man. Same for David Coker, Richard Rawlings, Stephen Andrews, or anyone else involved in this monumental, hilarious screwup.

I don't know any of them personally. We've never met.

My life experience has demonstrated that you can't really determine how fine or good of a person someone is until you've taken the time to really get to to know them. In my experience, this typically takes at least a few months, usually longer.

I think that character references detract us from the greater issue, which is that we must gain a deeper understanding of the web of words and tactics that is used to propagandize and influence culture on the internet.

Furthermore, I still haven't gotten an answer to my question:


A photograph of two guys in "Spank My Monkey" thongs, and a video of a guy declaring himself to be the "Anti-Christ of the Hot Rod World" were posted on our forums.

Who funded this act? Who exchanged money, goods, or services such that this would take place?
