Yea that's kinda a messed up post... my lack of spelling and grammer makes me a bad trader/seller??? Kinda like my insurance guy telling me couse I have 0 credit I'm a bad driver... I'm srry I pay cash for ever thing becouse I don't like to owe people money... I might not be able to spell or use grammer proper but that don't say anything about who I am or what kind of person I am. I feel that's a copout comment.

It's not a cop out, it's my opinion. You have yours, I have mine and I'm o.k. with that.

What you need to realize is that you are judged all day, everyday, in life. You might be the nicest person I could ever meet but on the internet the only thing people can judge you by and form an opinion of your character on is the way you present yourself in your posts. If you use the spelling and grammar of a 6th grader what choice do I have but to think you might be one? Does it mean you're a bad person to deal with or a scammer, of course not. But will it make me question weather or not I want to do a deal with you? Yes, other members, maybe.

racer1812 was not trying to take a slap at you. I understand where you are coming from, and respect what you're trying to say. But try to understand the perspective of other people before "losing faith" in the world.

The reason, unfortunately, that insurance companies weigh credit risk when determining insurability, is there is a very strong correlation between people with bad or no credit and insurance claims/fraudulent claims. Yes, it makes it harder for the honest people that still try to make a cash economy work in today's electronic payment world, but that is the reality of it. The reality is, if you are honest, hard working, pay your bills on time, and have 0 credit, you are less than 5% of the 0 credit population.

Same thing with poor grammar skills posting on internet forums. Like it or not, there is a strong relationship between people who struggle with grammar on forums and their maturity, communication, integrity, honesty, etc.

Its why many of us are reluctant to deal with people who can't or won't take the time to communicate effectively.

I'm certainly not judging anyone for what they do or say, but I absolutely reserve the right to choose whether or not to conduct business with someone. How people communicate impacts that decision a great deal.

+1,000,000 Actuaries get paid a LOT of money to determine risk and at the end of the day, the statistics don't lie. People with no credit, bad credit, little education, etc are a higher risk. Nothing against the person posting here, but when i see someone who can't spell or put together a meaningful sentence, I wonder how well the stuff was taken care of, or what I am getting my self in to.

Someone got their feelings hurt...........


If you are happy in your life and your family is proud of you that is all that matters, certainly someone you don't know on an internet hobby forum should have no effect. If they do then you in fact do need to revisit your level of education and self esteem.


Now back to the topic~!

Sniper, I think you've missed my point.

Lets get this thread back on topic before I have to make it go away.

Recently agreed to a trade in good faith with the original poster LostDog and wish I would have asked him to ship first. I sent him my end of the trade on the 16th of June which he confirmed receipt of on the 22nd. He wasnt able to send right away due to work reasons and said he shipped parcel post from Houston to Charlotte on the 21st. Since then, I have not received my package (10shipping days) and can not get ahold of him. His last activity on here was June 23rd and he has not returned my direct email messages. I am hoping that work is keeping him away from the computer and my package is going to show up buy I am losing faith and beginning to think I was scammed. I knew it was chance but when I was doing my due diligence on the trade, I noticed this post and I thought he might be legit.

LostDog is a scammer, I sent him a trade and never did he respond to my emails after he received my item. I never received the item he said he was gonna send me either. Stay away from him.
