As long as people dont misrepresent what they have, I dont see how it matters what they say. If I had Don Patterson's stock (I wish...someday your Bredli will be mine muhahahaha!), I would say that no matter who I bought it from. If I had a reason to mention the middle man (great service for example) then I would do so. I would never say I got it from DP if I didn't though.
