It's shame those who kept to MJs defence to order kit when he wanted and his 'right' to do what he wants (including that he doesn't need to engage on the forum if he doesn't want to) when the shit kicked off on FB a few months ago, weren't there to hold his bike and aren't the ones dealing with all the similar angst when trying to get certain characters to pay for their kit.
There was a lively debate at the time, I don't want to open the can of worms again but there is a side people don't see. It shouldn't be expected that we run around after people when they click their fingers. There are people who are difficult and downright rude.
There still isn't a consensus that kit should be ordered for the majority , for those who are involved and make an effort. Instead we should apparently bend over backwards doing add hoc orders, pretty much a free for all when from the feedback I've read and heard is that it's all worked pretty well up until now.
I'm just throwing this in now as I think it highlights why I think those putting in the effort to sort out kit deserve support to do it how they want if it satisfies the silent majority.
