Judge for yourself:


In particular, check the thread under the top-level comment by Joey Buckets...

Brock Harrison literally says "Richard Lorbieski wanted me to join and comment".

A bit later, Richard Lorbieski says "I have no clue who this person is".

Because that someone claims to have been asked by the seller to join
the conversation. That is a rather odd claim for one to make, only to
have the other person almost immediately disavow any knowledge of you.

At the very least, "Brock Harrison" is a bad liar (or perhaps just a
fool hoping to stir-up trouble). I can't for the life of me imagine
why anyone would take-up "Brock's" cause as the pretense for some
sort of moralistic crusade.
