I found a an interesting post on an aquarium forum where the writer used incorrect personal attacks to dispute my information.
Here is the ridiculous post from 3reef.com/forums (dated 6/27/12):
“I always take articles such as these with a grain of salt. First the writer of this article does not even have nor has ever had the fixture in question [TaoTronics]. Seems they are relying on what someone else has told them. Also advertising on this site for other led company’s leads me to believe there may be alot of bias.”
First as per bias, of coarse I have a bias (hence “Aquarium Opinions”), but my bias is based on what is proven to work both in investigative research and in hands on observations.
Second; yes I have not used the TaoTronics, but as I clearly state this review is based on investigative research and OTHERS in the professional aquarium keeping community that have. Why should I waste my client’s money on crap I know others have had less than desirable results with??? I meet and speak with others in my business to share such information so that we mutually learn from each other.
Third; What Advertising????
I have no advertising or links to pages selling anything, only links to other related articles.
I make NO Money off this website/blog, and in fact if I have any motive it is that I am tired of the BS that is slung around in this hobby as facts.
My talents are not in websites/blogs, as it shows, rather practical and honestly profitable fish keeping. By profitable, I mean that I keep my customer happy via results, and I have not lost a client EVER to another maintenance company!!
This guy clearly needs to use common logic and stop attacking others with “straw man arguments” when he happens to disagree.
