On October 4th, I Kicked in based on the Kickstarter found here.

I found it through the post on Calguns. After I kicked in, I was getting updates from Kris via email, through Kickstarter.

Now re-read what I posted above...

I ceased to follow the Calguns posts since I was getting DIRECT email from Kris.

In September/October, we raised $72,000 through a campaign on Kickstarter.com (net $64,000 after commissions to Kickstarter and Amazon). This net sum represents a third of our total projected budget of $180,000 to complete the film.
Please stop trying to argue about my principles. You're not going to convince me that Kris purposely leaving out the fact that the first Kickstarter would not fully fund the project was ethical.

Your posts have taken me from peeved to fully pissed off.

Thanks.
