This is really simple guys.
The Stage program was a program created to take care of our family... you guys are not just customers to us.. we really look at you as our brothers and sisters.
It was ( at least we think ) an incredible gesture to show how much we value that relationship.
To find people trying to go around the system by doing sketchy lease to own and $1 sales to get around the rather simple terms is just plain wrong. It not only breaks our obligation to provide whatever stage you signed up for.. but it also breaks our hearts. It's really that personal.
We have watched this go on for awhile.. Jim has posted that it upset him.. but people continue to do it.
For all of you guys here that have posted that you have kept your camera and have stated various states of affection for your R1... We will never forget. We love you guys. For those of you like Andrew that have kept your camera and plan to sell it afterwards for various reasons... you are good in our books. But those of you that have sold off your camera and somehow think that a loophole makes everything o.k... Re-read Jim's signature.
