Halt on EK Nickel Plated blocks - 11/06/2011
Dear EK partner/user,

As EK is looking for lasting solution for nickel plating issue (concerning corrosion because of silver coils and copper sulphate additive) we decided to halt sales of nickel plated products till solution is found and tested. Our resellers were advised to halt sales too.

We cannot put users into position, that we replace products and corrosion starts again on new product. Hopefully we will find an answer and tested solution in short while.

We will update you as soon as we have any news.

However, If customer insists on buying EK nickel block, we offer a customer full 24 month warranty on material, manufacturing and corrosion.

Edvard König

Meanwhile, over on XS the team is vehemently deleting anything that questions EK.

Im not surprised they are policing a bit more, it did get out of hand over there.
I asked the mods a few days ago to get it a bit under control and ask some members to remove some statements from their sigs as they were asking for trouble the way it was going.

My wife is a solicitor. I showed her what was going on and she said it got way beyond people complaining and got to a point where a few vocal individuals were out to slander which is something that shouldn't be tolerated.

People who have been effected by this have a right to be upset the way it's been handled but some of them (not even effected by this issue) over stepped the line.

It wouldn't be hard for EK to make a criminal slander case if they chose to, though I'm sure they wont.

For example, in the United States, EK first must prove that the statement was false. Second, they must prove that the statement caused harm. And, third, they must prove that the statement was made without adequate research into the truthfulness of the statement. These steps are for an ordinary citizen. And they may (in the United States) have to prove the statement was made with the intent to do harm, or with reckless disregard for the truth. Usually specifically referred to as "proving malice"

Many of the statements made were clearly in malice and with reckless disregard for the truth.

I think in the end everyone has done the right thing on all ends, EK extending the warranty, continuing investigation into peoples claims, stopping distribution of product, and boards have censored where appropriate and users have calmed down some.
