  1. I grew up in Spain and never had a problem with the Spanish people taking our orders. We didn't go to Wendy's often there and it was considered a "usa/taste of home treat" when we did. They were not required or expected to learn English and our service was always great, but I was the guest in their country.  =)

  2. I posted that I do not know Marvin and that is true. However, the things I mentioned were things that Marvin himself posted. So they were straight from the horse's mouth. I also believe the same is true for what Eric has written as well. I know he is your friend, and I know people don't have to agree with everyone else's opinions. I am just saying that there is no reason to be rude.

  3. Is there really anything for members to "hash out"?  I kind of see it like this...would you go to someone's house and criticize their décor, pets, or family? Would you tell that person how much nicer another person's house is? No, you wouldn't. Why bring up something that can only be taken as hurtful and mean spirited? Marvin posted, Eric reacted. Let it go.

  4. I don't know Marvin. I did read the last couple of posts that I read by him and they did seem rather inflammatory. The first one that I remember reading and thinking "wow, not very cool" was the one when Eric posted the Sony press release for The Essential.  Marvin jumped on the thread and pretty much "attacked" for the way it was written and who was chosen to write it. Sony wrote the release and it was their job to do so. The second was the Kay Bryson thread. It almost felt like the posts were meant to anger/upset Eric in both situations. I felt "defensive" reading them and I can only imagine how they made Eric feel. I don't believe that Eric doesn't want/need fans. I think that he felt hurt and betrayed. These are only my thoughts.  I don't know Marvin, and I have never interacted with him in any way but his comments seemed more than a little "snarky" to me.

  5. The funny thing is that I spoke to a writer that wants to do an article for Shindig and for an online site in December. That was before the Wally Bryson article. If the interview and article appear now she will say Eric is trying to steal Wally's spotlight.
