If you want to file a complaint. Against his book, please contact him directly. I am receiving too many messages from folks letting me know that they think they were defrauded in the product based on how it was sold and marketed. Thanks!

Wow, Colin's been trolling :o
I call myself "Thomas Cooper" here because this stops the magic café appearing when people google my stage name.

Does anyone else find the term "Special User" to be a bit condescending?

Why would you automatically think he wants to contact him to file a complaint? And defrauded? Colin didn't defraud anyone in any sense of the word. You should really choose your language a little more carefully. Fraud is a very strong accusation to make against anyone.

Complaints about a product, a very questionable appearance on an exposure TV show and a mysterious disappearing act.

Who are they going to get to play Colin in the movie version?

d also like to know. In another thread he said he'd been called by a few who were disappointed and felt misled. Does he distribute the book?

More of a summation so far, but I have a feeling we are only on chapter one!

Thomas-

Since you have decided to pretend to be an attorney, you might want to research libel laws as well as the Café rules that expressly prohibit what you have done in your last post.

Quote:
Because the Internet allows folks to post comments (whether true or not) in just a few seconds for possibly thousands to read within a very short time, making negative statements or accusations concerning the character or business practices of an individual or company / dealer will not be tolerated. While you may personally know that John Doe stole an idea, trick, or effect and is a thief, posting such information on The Magic Café will get your post deleted asap, and with no notice or explanation given. This also includes any disputes you may have with an individual, company or dealer in regards to any transactions you have made with them.

As far as we are concerned, such postings are no more then gossip or libel and fall into the lawsuit category.

Ohh *** it.

So basically, what they are saying is "NO NEGATIVE TALK!"

Seriously, read that post again. Under those rules I cannot even tell Bob that I thought he drank a bit too much at the bar tonight (if I happened to have met him) as that could be interpreted as liable: FALSELY.

P.S
No offence Bob, I am sure you drink responsibly. It was only an example Smile

I can not comment about Colin, as I do not own any of his works!

But, for Thomas...I have to respect him! I always do not agree with what he says,and poke fun at him sometimes!
He does back up what he says,with information on his reasons of why !

So Thomas,as sung by AC/DC ..."For Those about to Rock,We Salute You!" Smile

I would have added those clapping hands,but did not know how to ! lol

Ah jesus lads some amount of nonsense being typed here. Each to their own but I'd rather spend time working on my own performances and having the craic than getting all firey over magic shows on TV.

In relation to the product shur jesus my nana (she's dead) would have known a gimmick was involved from reading the thread.I've bought the book,read the book, used the method described in the book within my own unique presentation and had the audience laughing and gasping. Went down a storm.

Each to their own, everyone has a right to their opinion but sooooo many pages written about it, I say it's possibly time to let things go.

Sound out lads!

No, actually I fully understood your frustration. I never disagreed with what you said, I pointed out that this isn't the place for language of that sort and I didn't want to see you get banned for it. As for your sentiment, I couldn't have agreed more Smile

Can you please explain why exactly you are disgusted?

This question may sound sarcastic perhaps, or argumentative, but I promise you it is sincere.
