This looks pretty legit to me, notwithstanding the Google post, and the
fact that email@example.com isn't listed on the net anywhere. First
of all, if you do a reverse lookup of the NNTP-Posting-Host
(188.8.131.52), which I believe is set by Google and not spoofable (or
at least not trivially so), you'll find it resolves to
"rocklercompaniesinc.com," which seems to have the same mailing address,
etc. as rockler.com, and to have been registered in 1995. So, if this
is a hoax, it's a very good one.
Of course, we won't know for sure until someone talks to their local
store and confirms this policy.
I am wondering why the store manager did not have the foresight to recommend
ordering the clamps for the customers that missed out instead of letting the
situation get out of hand in HIS store. Are the store managers limits of
authority a bit too limited???
