Good luck with future deals seems like you "get it" at this point.
You're absolutely right. Should have been honest from the start. If that hurts my rep, that's my own fault. I'll admit that. I personally didn't see anything wrong with it, but it's finally sinking in that it's just an unspoken rule, an agreement the members have with each other. Makes sense.
