And it's all coming back to me now - you were on a business trip last August. Another classic spin on Matt's part so that he is able to say he ever lied about it.
Thanks for your response. I wasn't referring to any particular action you took, however, asking other people to bid on your auction because you said you mistakenly had it ending on Saturday night is a shill bidding attempt. If someone bid because you asked them to, it was shill bid. Is this the only time you have practiced such an act?
I take what I do very seriously. There is a business side of it and being at the National was considered part business and part pleasure. More pleasure than business, but business as well.
