there is a post going around on facebook, it is very opinionated, not sure i believe it all. but here it is for your reading pleasure XD
That post looks extremely similar to that of a guy I know on Reddit by the username "Pascaleraeb". I came across him a while ago, asking what price he should be charging for fresh chillies (he claims to have a lot of cool varieties) and, being UK based, I figured I'd hit him up and see if he could be a potential supplier if I ever branch out into my own sauce production.
He was very friendly at first but seemed to get rather snarky quite quickly when I thought our conversation had ended and stopped replying.
When a Reddit user called for my opinion on the matter because they thought I'd proven trustworthy (yay!), I found him immediately jumping in to claim his various sources to be the people to trust. One of which, I might add, is Mike Smith, the guy who first took the Dragon's Breath to the press.
If I were to trust either side, it would not be Mike Smith. ChilliBob's may have come across seriously suspect and have probably not been honest here but Mike has clearly and very definitely lied to everyone. As well as having proven his poor knowledge of chillies on at least a few occassions.
I appreciate that the scam is being exposed but the exoneration of Mike Smith should not have any part in it and I'm beginning to get a little suspicious of my "buddy" Pascal.
EDIT: And, to disprove any claims that it's just the press twisting Mike's words, here's a Daily Post article where he says twice, on camera and in rapid succession that it's a world record: http://www.dailypost...thetic-13042313
Just skip to 1:20 in the video.
