    I hate reading about any of our forum brothers getting screwed but yes this thread can be gold.

    Yeah, I will look into having some restrictions posting in that area. It doesn't make sense to have just anyone posting there. If the post hadn't been reported, I wouldn't know about it, as I don't regularly monitor that area (I guess I will now).
    Other forums restrict classified ads to supporting members only. We don't have that, but here you have to go by the reputation of the poster. Look at their past posts...do you have any interactions with them? Are they a good or bad trader? There are not many protections for the buyer here if you can't go by the reputation of the poster.

    Also why you should not do a transaction here without PayPal buyer protection. There are exceptions, like with people who've been active members of the forum such that you basically "know" them. E.g. Jolly. But for the most part, just pay the PayPal fees to make the transaction "official."

    From the Trading Post FAQ stickied at the top:

    If you join this forum just to post an ad, it will be considered spamming. Please consider being a member of our community before you post your ads.
    This incident reinforces the importance of requiring users to be active before they can post like this.

    Dealing privately, we don't have many of the protections you get from buying/selling through sites like Reverb and eBay, so once you're in a deal with a bad individual, you could be stuck and, even if you are able to back out, bad seeds like this may continue to try and make your life miserable. That's largely why the "Bad Trader" section was created...to warn others of bad seeds...and you can see there have been quite a few over the years.

    Mincer, isn't there a setting where you can require a minimum number of posts (i.e. 10 or so) before users can post in the Trading Post?

    No, none of this would be occurring if YOU took ownership for the way you behave.

    You want to blame me, because that's easier for your overly proud conscience to swallow, but you're the problem and now your true colors are showing for everyone to see. Bullying, name calling, lying...not good traits to have, my friend, not good.

    I’ve already told the moderator to kiss my ass as well, just waiting on the BAN. If you’d never interjected yourself into my listing for no other reason than to start ****, none of this would be occurring. You are a sad individual with nothing better to do than harass folks behind your keyboard. Its a forum guy. You take this way too serious. Maybe you should spend more time getting out of your moms basement, and less time harassing folks you don’t know.

    Consider it "free advertising"...that's what you came here for anyways, isn't it?

    People should know they are dealing with an irrational and potentially dangerous bully before they drop $2K with you and find out the hard way.

    To anyone considering doing business with the user "Guitar-Restore" (aka: [email protected], www.guitar-restore.com), you should seriously reconsider.

    This guy is WAY too angry to be dealing with real people. It was one thing for him to join just to sell his wares, which is typically frowned upon, but his reactive attitude is borderline dangerous. In fact, I don't think it's SAFE for anyone to deal with him!

    To recap, his for sale post got closed because of the way he was responding. Now he's lodging threats because he can't take self-ownership for his own (re)actions.

    Instead of reporting him to the mods, which apparently would make me a "f***ing pu**y", I figured it might be better to post his message up here for EVERYONE to see.

    Apparently, I'm what's wrong with the world because I suggested that he should introduce himself to the forum.

    As for the "tough guy", "bullying", etc., that's just him playing the victim card out of thin air and getting himself riled up. He PM'd me to call me names and tell me what a great person I am. No one was harassing this guy. But he can't get through a sentence without insults or curse words and this is the "real" person behind that fancy guitar ad and website.

    You've been warned!!

    You’re such a tough guy sitting behind that computer. Let me guess, 350 lb chronic masterbator, pizza delivery boy, staying up all hours just to play like your an educator on all things guitar? I did nothing wrong, you contacted me because you’re a dick. Plain and simple. You are the problem with what’s going on in the world today. Instead of allowing people their space, you have to harass and bully from your computer. What I would give for 5 minutes with you in person. We’d see how tough you were then. Now run and go tell on me for threatening you, ****ing pussy.

    Why? That bs, IMO. All of us have to start somewhere. Just because we haven't been playing guitar for years, yet, doesn't mean we're any less trustworthy than anyone else, as proven by this thread of multiple long-time forum members screwing people over. You can't just avoid new guys and think you'll never get screwed. That's not even logical to think that.
