My snowboarding bud can attest to that.

Why? I agree with your post. The guy shouldn't have been wearing a shirt like that while representing the company.

I'm as anti-organized religion as anyone you'll ever find, but potentially alienated customers is just not smart business.

Yeah, I still feel the same way, just didn't like all the negativity it stirred up. I feel bad it got to that point.

Don't feel bad about anything on this board. All hell breaks loose on most threads. If you take everything to heart, you will need to be medicated. I am already medicated, so everything is cool

It's not smart on the individual's part. Has nothing to do with the company. Furthermore, demo tent workers usually aren't really that involved with the company. Some are volunteers even. You can't realistically expect a company to hunt this tent employee down and slap him on the wrist. That tent worker probably won't even care.

Honestly, I think you guys give too much power to such innocuous things. So what if he had a shirt that offends YOU? Why are you letting a shirt bother you to the point of putting a ban on an entire brand based off one tent employee's shirt? You are giving silly shirts and images like the Mervin one power over you.
