Help! I'm totally lost

Just read through this whole thread because I usually am interested in anything that Ben K. starts.

But sorry, I'm totally lost here. No context whatsoever. Who the hell is WendyB? And why should I care?

Hiroshi Suzuki is or was the President and CEO of Hoya.

Edit: As a matter of fact, here is a blurb about him and a pic. The InfoTech 100 Companies: Hoya Profile

I guess she wants Ben to believe she is his daughter or niece? Perhaps she is. Perhaps that's really why the site crashed for a day and a half.

There was a Pentax boss awhile back named Minoru Suzuki...but I would certainly not suggest a connection....

I've been following the other "the sky is not falling" thread and it is better than prime time TV

Even IF (and its a BIG if) this person is the real deal that "I'm holier than thou" attitude certainly is not pleasant to be with......sheese.....avoid like plague IMHO. No offence, but whatever bounded by the NDA is NOT worth it to get anyone being treated/talked to like some doormat....

I admit its fun to watch when the lies fall apart.....keep this up and I can cancel my cable TV

It really doesn't, but lets not forget in all this that this person did suggest FF in September long before Ben did...

I will be photographing in the Tuillerie Gardens from August 6th to the 14th. If you would like to discuss this further. Just be discrete.
And WendyB wrote in https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/320315-post72.html: PS, Ben sorry you missed my shoot in Paris, you would have seen something you have not held yet. The umbrellas were up and very hard to miss.

And Ben, you replied in https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/320518-post76.html: Just one point here. I was never given an indication by "Wendy" about the location of the shoot she speaks of, therefore, I never could have witnessed it even if I wanted to.

So, what about the missing indication of location if it actually was Tuillerie Gardens? And has there been a 1 week long photographic event 2 weeks before?

When I invited Steve Jacob to my shoot in Paris, I called him, e-mailed him, sent sms's, gave him the time the address and how to get to the place. NO...Wendy only made this vague statement. Do you know how big the Tuilleries are? That would be akin to saying, "I'll be in Central Park next week, come and meet me. When? What time? Where in the Park? How can I meet someone I have never seen nor given the co-ordinates for that meeting.

Look. I am NOT going to be pushed in to a corner, where I have to defend my doubts about an individual who come out of the blue and says something as outlandish as, " I'll be at the Jardin des Tuilleries" without any explanation.

When I did my Press Conference and Photo Salon in Paris, I was given dates, times, explanations etc. No Wendy is being very effective at playing cat and mouse, to what end I don't know. Perhaps it is the game and not the outcome that she is enjoying. Maybe she is a total sociopath...But if she is working with Pentax, than they have most certainly changed their marketing approach radically, especially when it comes to "Buzz Marketing".
