Outsports lost a crossbow sale by promoting a 'perverse lifestyle'

We get some odd letters.

Outsports gets some bizarre and entertaining email but this one from someone called M. Kramer takes the cake:

"I was looking for a good crossbow. Was ready to buy from you until I saw your underlying theme of promoting what I consider perverse life styles Needless to say you lost a sale and I will also advise all looking for equipment not to buy from you."

I was not aware that Outsports sold crossbows and figured Cyd was running a side business I was unaware of. But, alas, Cyd assures me he has never sold a crossbow in his life.

Regardless, our "perverse life style" would have cost us M. Kramer's business anyway. I hope he found a good, upstanding heterosexual family values website to satisfy his crossbow needs.
