Default If you're going to post a picture - thank you, EXCEPT

when you use "stock" photos from either the manufacturer's or re-seller's website. Seriously, there is a special place for people like you. You're selling a USED item, and yet you'll steal the picture from a website of a minty brand new item and use that as representation of your product. Your picture is showing/telling me EXACTLY what I am getting, and it's condition.

First, this isn't the "rant forum". Use the "do's and dont's" thread the top of the FS forum.

Second, I get your point but at the same time. I don't know if you were actually interested in the item or not. But maybe you could be less of a dink and simply ask for actual pictures? Maybe it's a 50/50 split, he should post actual pics and you should be less of a dink about it?? Sounds fair to me

There you go using that word "dink" again. I’ve only seen dink refered as dual income no kids. Is this like a regional thing or maybe something from an older generation? Much like bee’s knees, or cat’s meow.

The two times I've seen you use it, it looks to mean goof or doofus. I'm genuinely interested, dink is kinda fun to say.

If I may chime in....I am not positive exactly what a "dink" is but I can assure you (based on the above meaning) that Socket is in fact a "dink".

I would say this term "dink" is slang for someone who does dumb things all the time.

The term "dink" as I use it, and it's referred to in the mid-west. It's the polite way of saying "DICK". You know what it means if someone says "you're being a dick"......?

Ya, if I say you're being a "dink". I'm politely saying you're a dick.

It ain't a good thing

Maybe if you weren't such a dink, you could graduate to the 5+ letter words

Thank you for the explanation. I can see calling OP a dink, <3 Socket.

Honestly not what I was expecting, but I like it.

Edit: I may need to re-read some of the places I've seen dink used before.
