    What is your experience?

    How many of you 'dove' in and thought you'd give Jon ********'s "Cyclone Times" site a try because of the money back guarantee? I was dumb enough to try. My question is this, how many of you asked for and received your money back? I'm wondering if others had the same experience as I did. So I have made a poll (at least I think I have)

    Poll question:

    "I tried Cyclone Times because of the guarantee and..."

    A. Asked for a refund and got it without any problems.
    B. Asked for a refund and got it, but after a LOT of hassle and many e-mails. (some of which got a nasty response from JN)
    C. Asked for a refund and didn't get it as promised so just let it drop.
    D. Like the product and didn't ask for a refund.

    Re: What is your experience?

    What has led to the previous negativity about Jon? I was just reading some of the quotes on the "Forum's" on his page and they were less then glowing.

    Sniffed it a mile away. Something just didn't seem right about the Cyclone Times.

    Never heard of Cyclone Times. Assume it was published by a certain someone on the Des Moines School Board?

    Re: What is your experience?

    This guy must have made alot of people upset. I would think in a position where you are elected by the people, you should send them nasty e-mails. I'm sure he makes sure those individuals aren't in his voting district prior to sending them.

    Actually, I think he may be one of the better board members. (not message board)

    Re: What is your experience?

    If you go to the forums, people are pretty mad. I feel bad for anyone who gave that "man" money because he is just plain shady. How much is the lifetime membership worth now? I personnally know some of the writers that were on Cyclonenation before it went down and they have much less glowing opinions of the management than the customers...if that is even possible.

    Re: What is your experience?

    I didn't have a problem with him until promises where made that where never kept. Also, my experience with him in trying to get the refund was not what I would have expected from someone who is trying to put forth a certain public image...and I told him that. I have come to find that he doesn't seem to believe anyone should ever question him.

    I know nothing about the Des Moines School board or it's members, I'm just thinking it's bad politics to have people upset at you with angry e-mails you sent them.

    Re: What is your experience?

    I really am not surprised at all to hear that a less then stellar individual who is not well known for paying his personal bills would not be real eager to refund memberships to a Cyclone site wannabee. Never heard of the Cyclone times until this thread.

    I'm pretty sure he was referring to the one person that said they enjoy CT.

    Re: What is your experience?

    So after a total of four votes, it looks like we have a scientific poll going.

    Re: What is your experience?

    He drove ISU's scout.com site into the ground. Made promises that were never kept. Fooled a lot of people with that site. I'm surprised anyone fell for his new site.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
