I don't think I've ever "bashed" them, but I've always said I'd never buy one.
I first looked at them in about '03, and didn't like the feel or finish. Since then I have seen way too many posts everywhere about various failures and cost of shipping (I guess there's a reason they don't pay the shipping, eh?) to even consider one.
Just like cars - with over 40 different vehicles in my past, I never had to own a Rambler/American Motors car to know that it would be a mistake.
