The Agra is an indian restaurant near Pete's farm in Lincolnshire, home of
UKRA HQ and the UKRA and KLOB launch events. Various groups of uk rocketry
people have been frequenting it at such events for the best part of a decade
now, and their potent lime pickle has acquired something of a reputation.
Being the newcomer that I am, I had to sample some, and can testify that
'hypergolic' is a good description!
Baby with bathwater aurguement warning:
1. Ananecdotal sample of folks say "many" dislike him with a "passion".
Are they universally representative? I dunno.
But THEY seem to think so based on "multiple contacts in multiple clubs".
So on your above theory I bet you coauld find a wide sampling of folks
who dislike me based on rmr translated rep alone.
But deal with only customers and you get a polar opposite view.
Hence why rmr is bash alone. It is not representative of reality. You
are leading the way.
I do not think there was ever a claim the relationship between Pratt and
Levin was strained, just the spokes of the wheel eminating from there.
Personally I wish "we could just all get along."

Opinion, the whole thing. <mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org>
Just to add my bit, I have recently placed and recieved orders from several
overseas dealers - WCH, AeroPack, Commonwealth Displays, AeroSleeves, PML
In one case I had to explain why I was unhappy going to the 'official' UK
dealer for a product I wanted, but other than that all of the companies I
have ordered from have had no issue with selling direct to me.
I can particularly recommend AeroPack direct sales - shipping is $6 (a bit
more than 3 quid) from the states, takes 5 days and when you factor in the
exhange rate... :)
The way I see it is that since rocketry is a niche market, few small
companies are going to refuse your money!
Pity not all dealers feel the same way

Deepsky is my exclusive distributor in the UK and Europe, and I'm not going
to violate the agreement. I've never had cause to regret
dealing with him. Right now I don't have any American dealers with GO Boxes
in stock but if you're ordering from one you could ask him if he's willing
to get one.
Sure puts the manufacturer between a
rock and a hard place, if the distributor
with whom he's made an "exclusive" agreement
turns out to be someone that the potential
customers would rather not deal with!
