I have my opinion as to your method of doing business. I stated my opinion as just that "opinion". If you wish to state your opinion and post for all the world to see that my expectations are too high and that the "rules" say that you are in the right, by all means do so.
Since you won't apologize for coming to and dealing on the EE without bothering to ask how things are done here, and then complaining cause I do things HOW THEY ARE DONE HERE
then how about you just admit that the rules say I am in the right. You almost did it there. I just want to see that.
We each have our opinions, we are each entitled to them, and, in a public forum such as this, each person that reads our opinions is entitled to form their own opinion.
This is not the public forum. This is the EE where there are rules and regulations to be followed. IF I state my opnion in the EE, my opinion can very well be erased and myself censured.
You are not entitled to post a negative opnion here and NOT back it up.
This is more serious than you think.
Here I am acting well within the bounds of the EE and you are trying to imply that folks shouldn't deal with me.
BACK THAT UP.
just admit that:
The rules say I'm right,
You didn't bother to check or ask anyone about the way things are done,
You understand the 'I'll take it if' problem,IT is UNACCEPTABLE TO ME to have this flip-flop middle of the road afraid to commit: "You followed the rules, but" complaint related to my screen name.
I go above and beyond the rules here. You gave me an I'll take it if, I gave you my phone number, I was hear all day and I know you didn't call, I actually WAITED TO cement my buyer until nearly 9:47 PM ( a mere half hour before you actually emailed me with another email that DID NOT COMMIT TO BUYING THE RIFLE!) to give you the opportunity to call me 'all day' as I had written.
You've admitted that it was your intent to examine the rifle prior to handing over the cash since you had never done this before and weren't just going to give money to a stranger for an item that could be worthless. The key phrase here is from one of your emails:
If I had committed to buying the rifle the way others seem to do
YOU don't do business the way WE do business and YOU are complaining?
Apologiy or retraction. Pick one.
