I would assume that the legal issues that seem to be mounting might have been a bit much for a public forum such as THT...

Greg Slayton contacted me a couple of years ago in relation to a Donzi issue, as well as his other business issues. My advice to him was to "lay low", repair his image, his business practices, and to square away the issues facing him...in other words, a "make over". It seemed to have worked...for a while. But apparently, my advice was not enough to make him change the way he goes about leading his life and conducting his business.

People are born a certain way, and that inherent characteristic is something they will always have, regardless of the influences external to them that try and change that characteristic. Take the Casey Anthony case down here right now. The woman was born a psychopath, through no fault of her parents, grandparents, siblings, external influences, whatever. It's just how a certain few chemicals got together when the sperm and the egg collided, and the end result is what she is, and she will always be that way. I'm not comparing Greg to Anthony, I'm just saying that, despite repeated issues concerning his his personna and his business, it is fairly evident that there is something amiss there, and it's something neither you not I can fix...

So I would suggest we move on, and try to do out best due dilligence when searching out a vendor to conduct business with. And as has been said here before, "Move along, nothing to see here..."

While I agree that this isn't a legal venue, removing the thread wasn't the correct thing to do. Perhaps if the mods edited it a bit to remove personal information. One of the great things about this forum is how it brings to light situations like this, and perhaps prevents anyone else from becoming a victim.
Look at A1/Blackbird/OneOutboard...THT was where they were basically "outed" as an unreputable business, and has saved many prospective customers thousands of dollars and major headaches.

Hi I am the one (a newbie) who posted what some seem to think is personal information about Greg Slayton ! if I oversteped the rules SORRY ! not sure how personal information (found on the internet) could anylonger be considered PRIVATE ?? all you got to do is DIG!! I have $26,910.00 reasons to think the DPM / Greg slayton story needs to be kept posted to warn others.

Thx Ron Opheim

I agree with Wolakrab the thread shoild have been edited not removed. I'm sure Greg's attorney threatened a lawsuit if it wasn't. People need threads like these to get info on dishonest bussinesses like DPM. He keeps geting new victims by moving from a website were he's found out to one where no one knows him. He's now selling on dieseltrader.com.

I would think that Internet Brands is smart enough to weigh the alternatives.

I also disagree with removing the thread. Other people need to know that Greg Slayton scammed me of 78,350.00 no money and no engines. Readers beware delta performance marine is a scam!!! once he gets your money he'll stop answering your calls and feed you with lies through email.

They are leaving this thread up here. If everyone causes more hits on this thread like with A1 blackbird outboard rip off repair then greg will not be under the radar.

The thread was not moved or locked. It is still there, just as it was. The only thing that was a potential problem in the thread is the choice of user names by one member. As of this moment, the last post into the thread was on 6/3, which indicates some loss of interest.

Here's the link to save you having to look back a page or two:

Why not edit the post and delete the personal information not the entire thread?
