    An Ex-HOG who made quite a big deal about selling off all of his Busse Knives simply because he took offense to us allowing all Busse Combat owners the opportunity to be inducted into HOGdom, just won't quit. Now he's trying to hurt our reputation by stirring things up off of the forums. I am very confused by his actions.

    Here's a copy of the email that he sent to Amy. She was very upset by this and forwarded it on to me. If the sender really did give a hoot about Amy he wouldn't have sent this to her during this difficult time. I won't post his real name, but felt that I should post this here in case you have also received this troll mail.

    "Amy, I have spoke to many others and we find it strange that no where in
    Jerry's "Amy-0 is leaving" thread does he say "She is welcome to come back
    to work at Busse Combat anytime she wants." Or that you say you like to
    return to Busse Combat someday. It just seems a little odd that there was no
    mention of ever returning by either side. It is also strange Jerry hasn't
    been on the forum in the last year at all except to sell knives, plus all
    the recent Busse employees posting filler threads on non-knife related
    subjects. It would appear something isn't quite right at Busse Combat. . . . ." Ex-HOG

    Dear Ex-HOG,

    Amy is dealing with what promises to be a very long-term family illness situation. Leaving our family to take care of hers was a very difficult decision for her to make and it affected all of us very deeply. Amy has been a HUGE part of our family for over 6 years and her leaving knocked the wind out of us all. She is of course welcomed back at anytime. To suggest otherwise is ridiculous. To act as if you really care is even more ridiculous.

    To say that I haven't been on the forums, "in the last year at all except to sell knives" is again ridiculous. Do a search.

    Giving some of our crew, who have been bugging me for years, the opportunity to post on the forums is not really suspicious either. They really enjoy the forums and only post when they want to. I have found many of their threads to be very funny and enlightening. Sorry if their posts have confused you in any way.

    So, please do us all a favor and just go away.

    Trying to hurt our reputation either publicly or privately is beneath you.

    The above posted response to a sad and moreover pathetic attempt--at who knows what, for who knows why?!? ...is one of the many reasons that I applaud Busse Combat's candor, and will continue to return. A very classy outfit indeed for being run by a "Janitor"...keep the fires lit Boss man!:thumbup::thumbup::D

    what an A**HOLE!

    Jerry, Amy and all at Busse combat, We love you for your service and products, this just makes me furious, how stupid can a man be!
    Just with a little logic thinking anyone understands how much you (Jerry) stands behind your company, name and foremost your employees and customers, it goes without saying but for me it is obvious that Amy can come back any day if she wants!

    Keep doing your awesome work and tell amy to be strong and that at least one busse-lover in sweden gives his support to HER and her FAMILY!
    If you are reading this Amy, the service provided by You wore by far the best i've ever encountered!

    No one who has ever had the opportunity to be part of the Busse family should ever question the honesty and integrity of this wonderful bunch of people. Amy knows we support her, and that most of us understand the importance of caring for family in need. I continue to applaud Amy for her courage in making this decision.

    Good on you, Jerry, for making that public. Some folk just get their excitement from bringing down others.

    This is about so much more than the knives. Or bruised little egos.

    Trolls are delusional people who try to pass their interpretation of realty on to the rest of us, there must be a way to escort them straight out the door and off this forum. I'm dealing with one now and it's very interesting to read the BS that comes from these peoples heads (whether they believe it or not). I believe the only way of dealing with trolls is first exposing them and then banning them period. To not have any consideration for what Amy-O is going through and how this affects the Busse family is inexcusable.

    Nicely done, sir. Trolls are best killed with facts and kindness.

    A Marine buddy of mine likes to quote a quote he heard one time..."be professional, be polite, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet."

    Carry on...

    Wow, it's a shame that people compound stress by feeling the need to speak out to others based on the far-fetched places that their idle minds take them. It's clear to me, at least, how close-knit the Busse company is.

    I feel sorry for Amy for having to read anything like that. Based on the time I have been able to get to know her, she deserves nothing but the best hope and regards from the entire world, let alone the close-knit Busse community that she has tirelessly served and had fellowship with. She created and projected a lot of spirit and energy into the face of the company, and we should all respect, value and appreciate it.

    I didn't chime in on the Good Bye thread, mostly because it's hard to put proper words to express admiration, encouragement and appreciation for her past, present and future. I hope Amy knows how much she will be missed at the next event I am able to attend. I may have lost my greatest ally in Jerry's ear for my attempts to get a Busse event in Golden, CO (Coors Lightville), but I respect her for making appropriate, yet difficult decisions that were forced upon her. She is a dear person and I hope that she is blessed for her strength and courage to "do the right thing".

    Well that sucks and sorry to hear it, I think I know who it is and it is disappointing to say the least.

    Only love and best wishes for Amy should be what anyone says to her.

    Chuck (G19G26) posted a message in the other thread, and it was pretty much what I discussed with Amy at Blade last year. She is much more than just a pretty face; Amy is a beautiful human being! I know that all of us miss her - customers and Busse crew alike, and would welcome her back in a nano-second!;):thumbup::thumbup:
