I heard him using my name by potential customers who didn’t even know me…here’s just one quote from sitepoint:
Buddyzone — I am not a customer and have no relation to any social networking scripts nor Clint Lenard. My experience was that the developer is currently out to breakfast, lunch and dinner. I can only tell you that I had perhaps the funniest email exchange as a result of a personal inquiry into his software and some recommendations to improve his product and appearance. Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks that his cookie cutter site, inability to preview the back end administration before purchase, lack of support forums and other amateurish appearance might not warrant $400. He went ballistic on me accusing me of being associated with phpfox, etc. and ignored any reasonable good advice that is obvious. He then mentioned something about pursuing legal plans that left me with a great laugh. Move forward at your own risk with this one. He’s turning away customers by the dozens…
When I asked why my name was used this is what he (the guy who posted that) had to say:
I have no beef with the guy. Apparently he’s getting heckled by people at phpfox who he’s giving a little bit of a run for their money. The exchange was rather absurd from his initial reply, accused me of being you or phpfox folks and that he was taking legal action or something of that nature. He might be a young ‘un and sympathize but I’m not spending $400 for this kind of ridiculous nonsense. He won’t listen to script selling 101 lessons from potential customers and that doesn’t bode well for his business.
That’s funny because this guy just won’t stop using my name anywhere!
Dude! I DIDN’T MEAN TO RUIN YOUR LIFE OR NOTHING! GET OVER IT! I PURCHASED YOUR SCRIPT, YOU CALLED ME A LIAR AND A THIEF AND THEN YOU SAID THE SAME ABOUT CODEMONSTER FROM DP WHO WAS ALSO YOUR CUSTOMER, YOUR FAULT GUY!
But anyways…back to the topic at hand:
So I got linked to ANOTHER thread from someone who was asking if I was the “same clenard” and I actually shot Pepsi through my nose because I couldn’t believe this guy was STILL using my name and was STILL claiming I was working for phpfox. Yes, I’m a Community Moderator because other phpfox owners such as myself WANTED ME TO BE ONE. Why? Because I was helpful! Something I would have done with BuddyZone if they had a Forum at the time.
So here’s a few links to what this guy is lying about now. It’s amazing how bad this guy loves me. I could have sworn I mentioned I wasn’t gay…somewhere…and I’m definitely not! So if there’s any good looking, single Vastal females available…holler!
I guess it took a while to come up with some good lies. I said MySpace was the ugliest site online? So what if I did? Ugly sites sell…I also said that! Just because BuddyZone is FUGLY doesn’t mean it sells, cool guy.
I fight on every forum about phpfox? Yeah, I do the same for Joomla, vBulletin, Yahoo! Publisher Network and many other products I believe in. What’s your point?
“Tactic Number 3: Make a fool out of all their customers.”
Now this one’s very interesting… see – here he’s saying I’m doing what HE did on DigitalPoint Forums! That’s great. You can see on those links up there how he contradicts himself badly and gets caught in this lie.
In the end I hope the competitor company will realize that it is taking illogical steps to disgrace Vastal I-Tech & Co. and its products and I expect being a good business house, competitor company will stop this bad tactics and will concentrate on their product quality if they really want to compete with us. Until then I do not even consider them my competiton. I also expect the competitor company which has used Clenard as a tactic to disgrace our company by writing all wrong things without any base will be suitably warned and restrained to write any more further against our company. If inspite of this Clenard does not stop his illicit activities I may warn that I may take legal course of action against Clenard and competitor company, the responsibility of the consequences will be of the competitor company.
Talk about irony! These guys are claiming I’m working for phpfox like I was hired to destroy their reputation… What reputation? It was destroyed many, many months ago when they did so many customers wrong. As for Competition? Dude, you’re not even in competition with Alstrasoft E-Friends! You guys are making a mockery of yourselves!
Get Rid of me? Are they going to take my licenses from me like you were trying to do with MY LICENSE OF BUDDYZONE?
Mr. Jain, please, think about things before you blab them out to the public. So far I’ve been very easy on you and have yet to REALLY expose you and destroy your company…that just wouldn’t be fair of me. I’m sure you have a family to feed and financial things going on like the rest of us… I would never do anything to ruin that for you. But STOP with the lies or I will HAVE TO TELL THE TRUTH!
Now on THIS POST: The BuddyZone Software Developer Mr. Jain is trying to make accusations, claiming I emailed him at some point in time.
I really hope you stop with the lies…they’re not cool. I hate arguing on the net as well. But when you try pulling my name through Mud for no apparent reason — I will definitely strike back. Since you’re full of lies and you have as many readers as Customers (2 or 3 left) — I won’t go too deep here. But don’t continue with your trash talk…
