I just saw that magicshop.co.uk used a quote from me to sell a product (The Vanishing) on their website:

a) without asking

and

b) they completely changed the context of my quote

Here's what they used...

"it's a step forward in terms of method..."

However what I really said on the Café (and the post is still there in the thread on The Vanishing if you want to check) was...

"It's a step forward in terms of method (if the performing circumstances are right) but a step backwards in terms of practical application. For practical purposes I would go back to the Raven or similar device."

Here's the link to the misleading quote...

Is that bad or what??? :(

Incredible...that somebody thinks putting your name on something will sell it.

What is the world coming to ?

I guess you're right.

If I wasn't me and saw my name promoting a product then I'd be inclined to steer well clear.
