  1. And what do you do? Take along look into the mirror, maybe thats why you lost confidence as owner.
  2. Yeah you can move on, I didnt get an apology or nothing from him. So no Cyril Im not moving on from this
  3. I will forever oppose this restructuring, a co-owner should never say or do the thing this person has said to me, for one I did nothing to him. How is he suppose to uphold community standards when he does this and apparently continues to do so? I literally begged you all to take action when he was doing this and you gave him a slap on the wrist. How can you guarantee I wont be punished by a person who has this strong vendetta against me for something I have no idea I did to them?
