    Hi all,

    I know a number of you received a personal message from @Icy Tech regarding Icy Dock products. I spoke to someone there today and hopefully will be speaking to the individual tomorrow morning California time.

    We had a lot of folks PM me and report the messages. I just wanted to say thank you for bringing this to our attention and will let you know the outcome.

    Regards,
    Patrick

    I answered their PM with:

    I'm not sure what Patrick's (the site owner) views are on "free hardware in exchange for review" posts by users - after all, that's a lot of what his front-page content is. I'd want to check with him first. But I may not be the best reviewer for these, as I'll describe in more detail below. [...]

    I received the same message and responded in basically the same fashion as @Terry Kennedy above.

    Just as a heads up, I spoke with the Icy Dock team today.

    They said they were looking to have more product reviewed on STH. I am still not clear on why this happened versus reaching out directly to me or the team. Normally, they just reach out directly to us. Alas, it sounded like we got this cleared up.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    @Fritz given a long enough timeframe, everyone's survival rate equals zero

    I just ignored em and reported it. I think Icy Dock should now actually make good on their promise of free hardware to everyone that they sent the message to, call it a Christmas present ;) :D

    This is true but since they (are they really Icy Dock or an impostor?) have my PI I was concerned that long might not be long. :(

    I also received a message from him/them, and just ignored it. Seemed to me more likely some type of scam - what vendor ever offers free product out to random forum participants.
