Default Hammil's tracking abuse post

Did anyone else see Hammil's post about folks tracking, and harassing, him and other Roadtrek employees? It was very hard for me to understand much, detail wise, from it, specifically. It was unsettling to be sure, but in the big scheme of the internet and business not entirely surprising, either. He has gone after, insulted, and made very angry, quite a few people, and the internet allows a lot of ways for those who insist on "getting even" to do it no matter how creepy, illegal, or in poor taste.

Stuff like this should not happen, IMO.

Who knows what the truth is? Jim's idea of abuse and harassment is someone simply disagreeing with him. The best thing for him and Campskunk to do is just get off Facebook as they don't have the temperament to deal with it.

I follow Donald Trump on Twitter now mainly for the entertainment.

I wonder how a company CEO can devote so much time to places like Facebook, reply to messages and such, not only in Roadtreking:The Group but also in other groups. I'm retired. This is a hobby. I know it takes an extraordinary amount of time taking away from more valuable ventures and tasks. I don't think the benefit return in business of doing so would make sense. Clearly it has been a double-edge sword if posting publicly about the tracking and harassing. I know any kind of pleas for knock it off, stop whining, do a search first, etc. is futile on the Internet.

I agree that with him it is hard to tell, as he does get very testy, over reactive, and aggressive when pushed. His first line of survival seems to be as the schmoozing salesman who is your best friend, but he quickly turns to a very aggressive intimidater if the schmooze doesn't work and he gets questioned. Lately, it appears neither method is working very well, and he seems to (over) react to lots of things much quicker and more harshly than in the past.

Of course, there could be things going on at Roadtrek, that we know nothing about, contributing to all of it.

I think his posting all the time on facebook is really unprofessional for a CEO to do. Especially since he does not have a PR person rewording and approving his posts. He is just asking for problems. Also he should be spending his time making roadtrek better, not being on facebook. I personally wouldn't buy from a company that has a CEO who is so out of touch with how to behave online, not to mention the fact that he looks like he could keel over any day now.

I look like I could keel over any day now too. I don't think that was called for.

That discussion is still going on, and quickly turned into the typical "we love you Jim, and Roadtrek is wonderful" Facebook lovefest we see all the time there. It think it is approaching 300 comments, although many are from the same few chatterboxes. It will probably boost his confidence a bit and maybe calm things down for a while.
