"Hey guys. I recently purchased/ordered a part from fellow VMF'er ______________. I have not heard from him lately and have tried contacting him. Would any of you have another means of contacting him? Thanks, _________________"
I used to quickread all the rants 'cause they seemed legitimate about suppliers. It seemed they (suppliers) were given three strikes before they were called out. To echo LMan, it seems it has gotten out of hand. Of course, I haven't been hung out to dry so I don't know all details.
That's my rant and I'm sticking to it
