Posting a comment on a thread (as it's still a free country?) is up to any member of said board if they chose to do so, correct? JFYI: I've never ripped anyone off or failed to pay for something that I said "I take it" period ( that is why this thread was started about, correct?). If you have a problem with that DOA, then it's your problem, period. As for me wanting to be a "Mod", you really wouldn't want that, as I think these guys do a great job here & I'd just banned everyone that can't follow the simple rules or ethics of life, period. As for Glocktalk (can add Gunsnet also), which they don't do half the job over there of busting these jerkoffs that stiff & steal from good folks. This board does a great job of "taking care of business". And ya know why, cause of members that really do care about this type of bullshit help out the best they can at putting an end to it, unlike you. My Honest Opinion & Nuff said.
In Team Forum DOA
voiced similar concerns. He isn't a "bad guy".
That being said, after you receive emails and IM's of "deals gone wrong" and other things, and then realize that in a few instances the person raising the commotion is the one actually the "Bad Guy", it takes a LOT to try to be entirely "unbiased and objective".
As I said above, a first post in Feedback is extremely odd, I could understand a post #2, but #1 is not seen much. The
emoticon means "confused". I question everything, even from people I KNOW have a solid reputation and are not the type to screw people over. This Thread is a perfect example of a "Good People" messing up, then apologizing for the problems caused. This keeps him in the "Good People" book.
It is definately not easy trying to figure out "ultererior motives" or "intentions" when there is a time lapse or just a few words in a reply, or something entirely false (The case against upstanding member Rem223
comes to mind, where a person went to great lengths to fabricate a false negative against him....).
Do I want to be disliked for what I do? No. Am I? Yes, by some. Will I stop? No.
EE is OURS, it is up to US to keep it that way. I cannot possibly follow every transaction in every forum and all the emails bouncing around in a day (there is a LOT that is sold here). I am only brought to the attention of the people who outright screw people out of money, to the likes of this thread ("tirekicker/backed out/etc) which do not even warrant a negative, IMO). We have to watch each others' backs, and when something goes "wrong", we need to let people know about it so it can be figured out in Entirety. Start with a thread containing the members name and a very breif synopsis in title. (like this one). Soon after, the thread will turn itself into The Truth, and may further prove a testament to the person being accused of a "Bad Guy". (as this one proved jnewt
an upstanding guy).
I now am starting to slightly understand why LEOs are bashed so much. When all you see is the bad side of stuff, and all you do is ask questions or help communications, people think you are against them. I am saddened that it has resorted to this. I never wanted it, but something had to be done. Now that it is started, there is no going back. Since there is no going back, we may as well make the best effort to keep it "Right" now and in the future. manny1
is a bit overenthusiastic on some things, people come off different, I do not know him or haven't dealt with him. However, he does propel discussion, sometimes not in a "neat and orderly fashion", but he does keep discussion going.... I guess it is the "Bad Cop/Good Cop" thing, where he is voluntarily playing "Bad Cop" so myself, boom
, and The Penguin
don't look like complete JBM asses.
Please leave further postive feedback for jnewt
in his dedicated feedback thread if you would like it to be counted. You can add commentary here, but the feedback points will not be counted. We look for duplicates and remove them entirely between dedicated and the main feedback thread, basically cancelling out your feedback (sorry, it was abused, has to be done). Read the !
Announcement (top thread in this forum) for how to leave feedback properly. There is no automated system. We manually copy/paste/edit/sort/add what is posted
, so please try to adhere to the guidelines so that updates can be more frequent.
I will stop with the post now since I switched topic about 4 times.... I hope I have explained myself and the concept behind "it all" well enough for you to not picture me as a "god" or an "enemy".
