It was going up for work and picking up the motors and trans he was giving away that didn’t happen. I had to revoke my boss’ privedges. winking smiley

Most of the people on this site are good people. And I'm very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet many members in person-more than I can ever recall. And I'll know the odds are I'll be screwed over every so often. And I know I'm not perfect-no one is. In the past I can recall a couple of times I was remiss in paying people promptly. However I took RESPONSIBILITY, paid WITHOUT complaint and APOLOGIZED for my inaction.

I just don't expect it from someone who is an active member with thousands of posts, many being BST transactions. And his attitude that I'm somehow responsible for his lack of follow-thru and record keeping really makes me wonder about some people. I'm having a hard time understanding his logic and rationale.

As for faith........that's a topic for another time and forum.



As Mark Twain stated:

I think it's time for a public shaming so the rest of us don't sell to this particular person.

It wasn't you Eric. Actually I owe you a great big thanks for getting the MGA bits from Stan W. earlier this year. I was afraid he was going to drop them off on my door step!

I think of it like this. I try to be fair and honest same as most of us here. And I believe that old saying, "You can't take it with you when you die". Is wrong. Your reputation follows you in that hole with you.

Is it really worth a few bucks to ruin it? At lest you'll know now you'll never to sale or buy from that person.

I agree, name names so the rest of us don't have the same thing happen to us.

And it has nothing to do with "honor". A crook is a crook and needs to be exposed.

Not totally dishonest but twice I had had people(not the same 20 commit to buying something and then disappear. In both cases when I relisted the item someone PM'd me saying that person had done the same to them.

BS, if this "crook" is such a crook he she it would have been called out a long time ago... shaming someone for titilations sake is just barely a grade above "crook"...eye rolling smiley

not to mention I think I have had about a month or better of that kind of non corroborated publicized sh+tsad smiley
