    I actually don't profit from knife sales, but don't require/expect that of others. My problem isn't with the flipping, though that won't endear you to many. My problem is with the fringe stuff-others photo's & text and misleading descriptions. I think you need to clean that area up.

    From your postings in this thread, it seems that you had a positive transaction with the member in question, glad to hear. However this doesn't diminish the issues at hand.

    You would do well to stay out of this part of the conversation.

    To tell you the truth I don't know this guy, But I hate a dog pile.
    That's why I quit posting here.
    This guy cut and pasted some half ass shit together,
    Not maliciously trying to rip people off, just lazy.
    Most of this thread is absolute bullshit and gives us all a black eye.
    Like some fight over at a knitting forum....

    I posted my positive result because he contacted me and said He made a mistake,
    Not the act of a thief.

    Cut and paste mistakes are one thing, but Ebay makes you use a dialog box to select condition. You had to choose to list an item as new when you knowingly bought it here used. You have too many repeat mistakes for them to truly be mistakes.

    Hmmm..." best way to convey accurate info..." I bet you don't even see the irony do you?

    Your so-called best way to convey accuracy has you listing yourself as a dealer, has knives you purchased used being described as new. Might want to rethink your sales strategy, some people might think you're being dishonest when you knowingly publish lies. I mean when you accurately convey information...per your own definition.

    As of right now, item # 273861340837 still claims you are an authorized dealer and bought the knife directly from GEC. This is false. You also still have used knives that you purchased here listed as new.

    This constitutes fraud and I have reported your sham auctions to eBay for what it’s worth.

    Wow... Old guy derails a thread, and brings a spit storm down on himself by being obnoxious. He makes a bunch of threats of physical violence toward another bunch of old guys from the comfort of his own home. We've got moderators trolling users, and trolling each other.

    It's like being on a guitar forum. :cool:

    Thread closed... @MP95B20 is no longer with us.

    After discussing this issue with another Super Mod, it's been determined that BF's would be better off without this member.

    Repeatedly posting inaccurate descriptions on another site, claiming to be an authorized Dealer on another site when you're not... does have its consequences.

    Below is from BF's Exchange/Site rules.

    SECTION 3 - Rules for Everyone -

    6. These forums operate on honesty and integrity. As such, we have a dim view of people who act dishonestly. Your actions in the community have consequences, even if they happen elsewhere, something to keep in mind.
