Dread wax "debate" report

If anyone's curious about how the dread wax debate went down: sadly, it was pretty much a bust.

Johnny Clean from DHHQ showed up as promised. He posted a 4,600-word "Dreadlocks Treaty" (I am not making this up) in which he assigned every dreadhead and their beliefs to either Category A or B, then proceeded to frame every issue from the perspective of each of those two groups.

While we were all reading & processing that, he posted his first "debate" answer. However, he did not like the wording of the question, so he rewrote it and then conveniently answered with some copy & paste from his FAQ.

Several of us complained that if clarification was needed, he should have asked us to rewrite it (since we were the ones providing the questions)... they've been posted on the forum for weeks, so it's not like he didn't have time to request rewrites. Anyways. I also asked that he not attempt to categorize everyone and their opinions, as it's polarizing and unproductive.

It's been several hours since his one & only post, and he has not replied to anything or addressed our concerns. It appears he will posting his answers only on his marketing site (you can read his treaty thing at that link) even though there is no way to post comments or questions there. But if you have questions for him, you can post to his Dreadlocks Treaty Facebook group. (Is your head spinning yet? Mine sure is...)

Running comments from the forum hosting the debate are in this thread. Keep in mind that most of the debate questions were written by one person (SoaringEagle) rather than the whole forum. :-) Check out the interesting math calculations regarding wax on page 6!
