Not sure how i feel about this.

I was taking a look at the Viking Engine website and was surprised to see my quote, with my name attached, from a post I made recently on the Zenith Forum.

There were also other quotes from other members on this forum.

Dont know about others but Jan never asked if he could use my name on his website. Not sure I appreciate it.

Also, I am not a Viking customer. He is using my quote to demonstrate the superiority of the Viking engine over the one in my plane, from a performance perspective (and i dont disagree, btw).

While he technically may have the right to copy a post, with my name attached, from the internet I thought he could at least asked me if it was ok.

I'm going to ask him to remove my name from his website. I have no desire to have it appear as if Im somehow supporting his product. I literally know nothing about it.
