    I'm not bidding or selling. Just saying it's kinda painful to watch.

    Good stuff, Marshall. First time I've ever bothered to read it. You can't emphasize the "do not fuck over a maggot" part enough. Personally, I wouldn't buy shit from someone that wasn't an established member.
    I rarely tele.

    Don't buy anything from Rick Bell of Christy Sports in Vail, known as Sick Rick for the moment, but perhaps with a new name after that thread.

    Ok, all you turds who come in with 1 or 2 posts and want people to unload all the rad/gnar/coolest shit out at cheap prices need to get the fuck out.

    This place is a community-bring something to the table ie cool stories, stoke pics, nekkid pics of your fat girlfriend, tech advice, a funny joke, something. At least have another mag vouch for you.

    Don't think you can come in and get hooked up because you read a mediocre article in a magazine you got for free with your season pass to a landfill.

    Please ask all questions before sending payment for the item you are buying. It doesn't really help to ask what the condition of the item is after you have already paid for it. Also, please read the item description, so you don't ask questions that have already been answered!

    Don't buy from or sell to Suncuntry. Total douchetool for sure.

    I think the spirit of this thread is geared towards dealing with people who are part of this community. Someone who just registered with a low post count is not yet part of this community. Someone who may have registered long ago, but only has posts/threads in Gearswap is NOT part of this community. Do you research on the folks you don't recognize as regulars around here. If the only thing they contribute is to poach maggot deals off gearswap, then don't give them a maggot deal and tell em to fuck off if they start chiseling you down. I personally am afraid to sell or buy shit from people I don't know and stay away from the obvious fucktards.

    -Don't be so eager for a good deal that you put aside your usual common sense.

    -If you can afford to do it, put up a "No JONGS" sale, always let contributing mags have the first shot at the goods.

    -Test out newbs with face to face cash deals, where the goods can be carefully inspected by both parties and there are no misunderstandings.

    -Clearly and fairly describe the condition of what is being sold, with pics.

    -Don't pass off crappy gear as anything else than what it is.

    -Pay promptly.

    -Ship quickly.

    -Never let a bad deal stay sour for weeks, say something. While you are being strung along a scammer is getting more mags on the hook.

    Good post bklyn. My situation was 50% my fault. I just got a little complacent, did a short search on the guy and thought, hmmm a good deal...better jump on it.

    Had I did any number of things on your list, I'd have $260 more in my pocket.

    Heed her words, she's smart.

    Don't be a DB asking for pics of brand new gear. If someone says it's new, it's new. If you're not certain they're trustworthy then ask for references, or by all means don't do business with them, but do your window shopping and dreaming on someone else's time.

    i would also like to add that it is a dick move to offer killer deals then not agree to ship to canada.

    Fact Summary - The Reality of this Forum



    After years of being on this forum, years of reading at times, dozens upon dozens, very humerous exchanges, the following is fact:

    1. (Most important) High amounts of post's do not always equate to integrity, class, or honesty/common sense. Often times the opposite is true. There are a few decent one's of course and folks I have had good transactions with, a few I have had the pleasure to rip a few turns with, but many times there are just thread posting jongs online that want to get there post count up, so that they may look like fly bitches on the web.
    2 The "Read This First" post has been disputed by many and is full of flaws - most importantly, if you truly wish to sell something nears its worth, don't do it here - period. It is NOT, NOT, NOT the one of the best places to sell. It might be a decent place to buy from someone who is desparate, but not a sellers market looking for a fair price. Really at best, this section provides good humor after a night of drinking - period. There is value in that for sure.
    3. Some idiot's (my personal favorite) try to attach links to models similar to your's or others, from discount sites, that have size 159 in stock. Even better still, they will use last years model most of the time. Anything, (facts don't count) to show your item or post is suspect, when 8 times out of 10, they are incorrect.
    4. The 50% off ideal is also bullshit, just go back in the posts and you will see some of the same high post bitches selling their one season old shit for nearly that. My personal fav is a Tahoe bitch selling his patagonia soft shell for $150 and only used a dozen times. Bargain! No double standard here.
    5. Do not try to rationalize with the idiots that post..use filters to interact with the few that are very cool and can actually be honest.

    Just thought I'd throw one across the bow to the 60-70% of those post seeking bitches out there - with a bit of honest, fact based reality with regard to selling on this site. Just say NO. :fuck you:

    Some good facts, but some additional, perhaps not politically correct here, truth's to be known as well:

    $800 for Rossi Cuts?

    OMG, I have two pair of 130's in my garage and can't wait to get my $1600 smackers for them. These things don't fit in racks of any kind but I noticed that they will fit in my trash container yesterday. I'm soooo glad I found this place. Look for my post soon.
