brought my $ DH in for a new single spoke a couple years back. Went back to pick it up a couple days later. One new silver spoke the rest black. That was enough for me.

You are not serious, right?

yep. 6k bike and one spoke doesn't match. Maybe something most wouldn't beef about but I worked hard for my bike and appreciated it more then the guy working on it did. Small details but enough to not want to bring my bike in anymore

I agree. I find it interesting that you are taking a little heat about this.

The big clincher for me in this whole "spoke color" thing is the lack of phone call.

I personally probably wouldn't care about the different color spoke, what I WOULD care about is the lack of communication and the fact that they made a decision on my behalf regarding my property.

Good eye! I totally missed that because I was blinded by the seatpost QR combined with the Reverb!
