Libel in court is not as cut and dry as you define it being a public false statement. There are so many different paths of defense on whether a statement is truth or privileged, free comment, or opinion as I believe it is in this case. This guy has had legal dealing with works in the past and won, and they seem outwardly to want to silence any references to how Peter Kang dealt with this guy.

Did we see the same post?:

Well forgot to mention they do have an account, but it's not like they've been doing whatever process is needed to keep it at vendor account or sponsorship status, in fact a lot of vendors tend to let that die out if they do multiple vehicles and skews, it seems alot of good vendors still are sponsoring this site, most of which I still purchase from. However here's their account:

Last activity on it was 2 days ago at around 5pm so be weary they are definitely looking at your posts

Valid sponsorship accounts depend on how the forum is ran. Whether it's a monthly/yearly fee, or a one-time fee. Other forums I'm on have 'sponsors' that closed down operations many years ago.

Works had my car from July 2017 - July 2018

They first told me that the project would be done in 3 months so around Oct/Nov 2017.

I started telling them I needed my car back in Jan 2018. I kept stating that I need my car back soon because this project went way over schedule.

Every time I would make it clear I that I would like my car back soon, they would give me a new finish date which would always be just around the corner to try to keep stringing me along.

It was clear the game they were playing with making excuses to keep my car longer. So I forced their hand to give me my car back with something they couldn't wiggle out of.

The wiggling they did can be see in many of our email conversations.

No one should accept that sort of conduct out of a shop and then expect you to shift your life around to meet their laggyness. I was told 3 months initially and went into things making accommodations for those first 3 months. But after month 6 or 8 or 10 or 12 life moves on and I needed my car back.

You seem to really be arguing that it is ok for a shop to lie to you over a project timeline over and over again and then have them keep your car for an indefinite amount of time.

Sorry that's not how the real world works and its not how the real world should be expected to work.
