Tesla Top Referrer In Asia Adds 86 New EVs On The Road

NOV 7 2015 BY ALEX WAI 28

Raymond received this letter from Tesla as a confirmation he received the top referrer title in Asia.

Raymond received this letter from Tesla as a confirmation he received the top referrer title in Asia. The letter was later updated because it had not included the option for him to purchase the Model X Founder Edition.

Congratulations to Raymond Wu from Hong Kong on receiving the top referral title in Asia for the referral program ended on October 31st. Although he was not the first to acquire 10 referrals but he incredibly managed to refer a total of 86 new buyers and hopefully that will reduces many tons of harmful emission on the road. Tesla or any EV manufacturer should consider recruiting him to increase their monthly sales volume.

Raymond's referral numbers shown in his account. He has enough credit to buy himself another Model S or hundreds of CHAdeMO adapters.

Raymond received the delivery of his current Model S 85 this May and have been sharing his EV experience and helping non-EV owners to understand the latest technology with his website.

While doing so he picked up a few referrals along the way. He has a health food business and often times uses his Model S for deliveries. He is now being offered to swap outΒ his 6 months old S85 for a P90D Ludicrous free of charge. His customers would definitely enjoy his ludicrous speed delivery but he may have to compromise on the reduce FRUNK space with the dual motor.

No word on when he will actually get his trophy car yet….

I wonder if they would allow him to keep the S85, and ADD the P90DL for a very good price? Maybe just something like the difference on value over his current car?

86 Referrals?….Yea, A very good Price! It should be “FREE” Hands down!

Doesn’t 86 referrals mean that Raymond gets $86,000 off a new Tesla car, services, or accessories, or was that for the U.S. only?

Never mind. I now see that one of the picture captions says tht Raymond “has enough credit to buy himself another Model S or hundreds of CHAdeMO adapters,” but this fact wasn’t mentioned in the article itself.

Woo! 86 referrals that completed into actual sales. Very cool!!! πŸ™‚

Really. I don’t think I could get that many people to even talk to me.

You could if drove a Model S, including some of police officers if your kids like to ride in the trunk-mounted seats. πŸ˜‰

The article says:

“Raymond… have [sic] been sharing his EV experience and helping non-EV owners to understand the latest technology with his website.”

Yeah, I figured he could only have gotten that many referrals which became actual sales thru a website. Person-to-person testimonials are perhaps the most effective form of advertising, but nothing beats mass communication for sheer volume of sales!

Folks,
I’m taking my business elsewhere. The site editors here are unreasonably biased and hostile towards free speech. Good bye for now.

The hell is your problem? Nobody even said anything to you in this article and you come along and moan about something totally irrelevant to the discussion.

People don’t dislike you because they can’t tolerate free speech. Free speech is fine as long as differing opinions are delivered tactfully and respectfully.

See Through, A decision was made last week to not have multiple Tesla threads (as well as many not involving Tesla) overrun by dozens of unrelated comments/insults on exactly the same subject, worded to entice reactions and derail conversations from the article at hand by a handful of individuals. It is not fair to the author of the piece, or others honestly attempting to discuss the subject presented. They should not have to sift through the chaff to find related content. At this point, only 6 habitual commenters are affected (all of which have been flagged with more than 200 of such comments – more than 3,000 in total), and of which you are one. You are of course still free to comment directly to any article, and give your opinion, and are of course free to be as skeptical or positive of the subject (or of Tesla specifically)as you like – but it must be on topic to the article. Endless, multiple assertions of a common thought presented in an antagonizing fashion in multiple/unrelated threads, only serve to devalue the comment community and devalue it to a place persons to not wish to be a part of.

“A decision was made last week to not have multiple Tesla threads (as well as many not involving Tesla) overrun by dozens of unrelated comments/insults on exactly the same subject, worded to entice reactions and derail conversations from the article at hand by a handful of individuals.”

Does this mean that Tesla fanboys/cultists /zealots will no longer be allowed to personally attack anyone/everyone who mildly criticizes Tesla or Elon by accusing them of shorting Tesla, astro-turfing, spreading FUD, bashing, being a Tesla-hater, etc.. Will those personal attacks be deleted?

Who are the other 5 habitual commenters? Can you name names?

For now our focus is on these 6 commenters – not comfortable naming them, unless they “out” themselves, (4 would be considered very anti-Tesla, 1 very pro-Tesla, and 1 very anti-EV overall). We have also started to moderate the ‘extremely’ harsh replies in unrelated threads…our hope (and expectation) is without these six stirring the pot all the time, the wider community atmosphere will be more tempered. I think what has been happening to some degree is that the community (in absence of any moderation) has been attempting to defend itself from the intrusions of these persons – but being the Internet, and an open forum with no penalties for inappropriate actions, this only flamed the fires more. It still is not our intention to ‘nanny’ every thread and every word said, we just can’t devote that kind of resources to enforcement, and I don’t think anyone wants to feel the threat of a heavy hand on top of everything. We will be trying this out, and trying to keep topics on focus. …the recent “Elon Musk said” thread at the Baron’s Conference has mostly been left unchecked regardless of what side of the fence persons are on the topic (as… Read more »

Thanks for the response Jay. I’ll try to temper my pro-Tesla enthusiasm in future comments. πŸ˜‰

On a side note, unlike a number of other stories on InsideEVs, the “Tesla Model S Third-Row Seats Lead To Odd Run In With Police – Video” news story had a good/friendly back and forth discussion in the comments on a hot button issue. It was devoid of hostile comments, personal insults, and harsh replies. It was kind of odd, and a pleasant surprise!

That is good. A hearty/spirited back and forth and engaging conversation is the goal.

…and you are free to be as enthusiastic or pessimistic as you like on whatever the subject is, (=

Jay–

thank you
thank you
thank you!!!

I can’t count the number of good EV and solar sites that have been destroyed by a handful of intentional trouble makers, until they drive off everybody else making comments.

If you ever have to nuke one of my posts because I go too far, I won’t hold it against you. I’ll own my own mistakes.

Thanks
Nix

Well, I’m one of them…..lol
Jay slapped my hand the last time. πŸ™‚

Maybe I can change my name to “Trollnonymous”.

“worded to entice reactions and derail conversations”

Interesting how “staff” goes out of its way to avoid the t-word.

Can’t we just call a troll a troll?

No. In this day and age, calling someone a “troll” is politically incorrect. The politically correct term is either “reaction enticer” or “conversation derailer.” πŸ˜‰

“You are of course still free to comment directly to any article, and give your opinion, and are of course free to be as skeptical or positive of the subject (or of Tesla specifically)as you like – but it must be on topic to the article”.

So basically the door is still wide open for people to systematically come up with negative posts as long as there is a clear link with the subject at hand.

The question is: should people really have the right to *systematically* post negative views? The problem with that sort of views is that they more often than not are not rooted in facts, it’s about repeating the same often rebutted nonsense over and over again and it will “entice reactions and derail conversations”.

Guess it’s difficult to rhyme the principle of freedom of speech and avoidance of heavy handed moderation tactics with the desire to prevent certain elements from turning the comment section in a wasteland.

Case in point. Your comment just now is inflammatory and designed to provoke. If you are gonna take your attention seeking elsewhere then please go, leave us alone. Methinks you’re going to stay and you just LOVE winding people up.

So says the commentor with the inflammatory screen name that is designed to provoke See Through. πŸ˜‰

Did you used to post here under the screen name CherylG’sDirtyLittleSecret, or was that someone else?

Farewell See Through, we hardly knew ye . . .

Just to touch on this, and in light of the new changes, it would probably best for “Anti-See Through” to return to his/her original ID name.

Again, InsideEVs itself will look to keep an appropriate minimum standard of decorum/maturity from here on out based on mutual respect of each other, and our differing opinions.

Just your luck, he will change it to Anti-Jay Cole. πŸ™‚

First off, Thanks Jay, your approach detailed the why’s and seems even-handed, IMHO.

sven, I do see your point, but overly positive simply does Not come across in the same way as dredging up factoids repeatedly, particularly when they do not relate to the article in which the factoid is posted. I hardly knew him either, but Master See-Through ‘seemed to me’ to go Way out of his way to offer inflammatory statements, and enjoy the replies from “fanboys/cultists /zealots” that they caused.

Obviously there are other posters that do the same, and I pray that they will take a moment to appreciate that parrot-verbage does No One, least of all themselves, any good.

Thanks for your posts here sven, you have helped to educate me several times.

Right back at you Phr3d! πŸ˜€

Way to go Raymond! Very well done!

Hmmm. I should’ve been writing unofficial Tesla blog instead of SparkEV… Not that I’d actually drive a Tesla; I mean, dog splatter on windows and dog hair all over the interior of Tesla? No way! But SparkEV without dog hair covered interior and drool stains on the windows seem naked. πŸ˜‰
