Hey members. I'm moving some recent discussions here in hopes of keeping the buy/sell thread as it was intended. Please keep comments constructive.

I don't see the point of this rant and rave. You know if you are more than a hobbyist and should be considered a vendor. Its simple, if you have a tax ID or anything of the sort or are selling more than once a while.

The point of this rant and rave was to call out bs. I see double standards all over the place. I was treated very rudely and totally unprofessional by Tom's technic. Even disrespectfully. He deleted all his messages though while in charge. The only reason I didn't get a refund for my sponsorship was he threatened to ban me for wanting it back right after I sent it. I was told I could sell in the buy sell forum if I sponsored. All that changed after I paid. When I brought it to attention I was threatened. What kind of leader does that? And why would I be banned for wanting a refund because of confusion? I shouldn't have been threatened or lied to. This was the point of bringing it up.

Things have changed much. Have you tried talking to Ron at all. Give it another shot. Btw I do look at the sponsor forums when they post.

Are you kidding me? I spent a whole Sunday begging you to post your stuff in the forum you paid for, while you complained it could not be posted in buy/sell. I told you if you had good stuff, people would come. You posted nothing, and wasted your sponsor fees. I deleted nothing, and have all of our emails in my gmail account. I am willing to post all of them, but the last time I shared a "private" email received from a member, I was removed from leadership.
