That's all fine, and I am not trying to come down on you, however, I would say that posting a video calling out the build and questioning whether it was done so defectively without truly knowing how the board is built is perfect evidence of jumping the gun. You are totally entitled to do whatever you want on this forum as its totally free and public, but as moderator, I also think it wasn't entirely fair to Firewire and I wanted to explain it in a manner that caught people's attention. Ultimately I want people to think about your post objectively with the proper information.
Regarding your case, I am happy to follow through everything with you. I am back in CA now and have your previous emails saved so I will be getting to it this week.
Thanks again for your support and understanding.
