I am not trying to be disrespectful or funny, I am just stating facts. I make wise business decisson and I make lots of money in the gaming industry. I deal with the best people and know all the insiders. People, who may or may not like me, deal with me because i make them money.
You would be surprised who will work with you if you can make them money.
As for people who slander me, i could care less... If its true, why has no one sued me? The reason is... its not true!
Good luck, and if you ever need any advice on how to make money in the adventure game market, i would be glad to talk with you. Anyone here can call me anytime.

OR because their losses individually are small enough that they don't think it's worth the bother trying to sue someone with as shifty as a reputation as you?
OR because your changes in management and new company startups can shield you personally from liability?
There are many, many reasons that are far more logical than having so many separate people in separate parts of the world in separate industries all creating this conspiracy of slander against you.
But, bottom line, I guess the best I can do is say that from the years of hearing about your business activities, I will never have any part in a project that you are involved in. Whether or not a single word of what they say is true, your reactions to them on this and other boards (even leading to a banning from RPGnet) has led me to see pretty clear your level of customer service. That alone warrants an inclusion on my personal black list. I can only encourage others to do the same.

I'm sure people really want to go to court over a couple hundred bucks - especially when it's across state lines. The transportation fees alone would likely cost as much as would be recouped.
I can't comment on if the statements are true or not, but your argument holds about as much water as fishnet stockings.

RapidPOD took an order from me for delivery at Origins, Paradigm's premier convention. It was not filled. Not having this title cost me at least $5000 in lost sales. I also saw first hand the techincal challenges they had on-site, so I decided to give them a break. It was evident that their failure to provide was completely absent of malice. The did fill my Origins order for GenCon Indy, and I did manage to sell an undoubtedly diminished number of units at the lesser show. I also paid significantly less for these units.
It is now clear to me that RapidPOD basically crumbled when attempting to ramp up their operation. The failure appears to be in not fessing up, flat out, when it hit the fan. There are other PoD operations out there that several publishers could have gone with, even last minute. As it was, for the Witch Hunter screen we needed for GenCon Indy, we went to another source.
A public forum such as this is a terrible place to resolve such issues. If I were Ken, I would have restricted my response to pointing out that I am not the same Ken Whitman cited earlier and would have avoided responding to other accusations / questions.
I found it interesting that site lists you as having a "high risk" credit history of non-payment and an 84% debt-to-income ratio (with 20% being the "high end of normal") for someone who made so much money and was supposedly raking it in with RapidPOD.
