One last remark about the allegations of us selling C60-in-oil with fungus: The fungus on the photograph is on the inside of the dropper pipette. These are the facts:
- We sold thousands of product bottles, only one single one "had fungus"
, as the photo in this thread testifies. No other complaints. If one mixing bottle would have been fungally contaminated, a total of 70 bottles would have had fungus.
- The fungus in this bottle is most prominently visible in the dropper pipette, but was not noticed until after weeks after opening and use. That means that the fungus developed after opening.
Esp. because it is exactly the pipette that comes into contact with the outside world, i.e. it touches the skin or the contents of a glass or a salad etc. sometimes. Or even just the outside air, where spores float around.
Our dispatch person nowadays shakes every bottle before dispatching and holds it against the light. She has been using some bottles from our oldest batches to give to her dog. We gave her the bottles because they were soiled by oil from a cracked bottle during transport. ZERO of those bottles have any fungus as of today
, half a year after their production. And ZERO bottles of the first production runs that we are using ourselves have fungus either
. Not the slightest hint of it.
As to suing or not suing and the money, time and emotional energy involved in it:
We certainly have sufficient funds available to sue Mr. Anthony Loera and/or Revgenetics. We had his company examined, and our attorney told us his business turnover (or profit, I forgot) was half a million USD/year, last year. That is not so much. We have a much higher yearly turnover/profit, and we currently have so much money in the bank that we are at this moment, just before the new year, feverishly looking for ways to spend it, because all money left in our account on Jan 1, 2013 will be taxed. At this stage we are facing a decision, shall we invest in physical gold bars (vs. gold in an an investment acct.) or shall we sue Mr. Loera, that's basically the situation, since we do not know at this point what else to invest in. We have just launched our own home brand of dermarollers, we stocked up on all we needed, we totally innovated our C60 production process, so now it's a question what to do with the excess money.
Just as Mr, Loera announced he was going to sue us for 8 million dollars because we were sent some vidcaps that violated an alleged clickwrap "agreement" that he claims we signed, we are now harassing our attorney in these festive days to advise us what he thinks the outcome will be, suing Revgenetics for criminal slander
(knowingly spreading malicious lies with intent to do financial harm to a competitor). It is a difficult decision, and we'll have to make it before the end of the period between Christmas and New Year's Eve. This is now the second time Anthony Loera defames our company - it has to stop.
Update: Our lawyer just told us that we have to get established that Mr. Loera knew of our initial response on these forums, where we explained our position on the alleged fungal contamination. If he, in the face of our response, persisted in his allegations, then that constitutes criminal slander and then he advises us to sue.
