Dr. Hollenberg,

I have seen where you dismiss an auction, or seller on multiple occasions, and usually the seller is well known to the list. For example you have claimed that a restored Masi (with documentation provided by Alberto Masi) was a fake, and recently questioned RHClassics, and now Stefano. I've asked before, and have not gotten any response from you, and am asking again, on what do you base your comments? One could speculate that you are trying to drive away potential bidders in an attempt to purchase the bikes yourself, or to drive down price. I do not know if this is your motivation, nor do I really care. What I would ask is that you back up your allegations with proof, otherwise they are baseless. You ask that sellers provide backup i.e. the documentation from Paolo Colnago on the current bike, it's time you did as well.
