I have 659+ Feed Backs and 1 - from a member who was quickly drummed out of the Fal Files due to his poor membership and negative feed back by several members. Can this - FB be removed?

I know 1- FB should not bother me and certainly would not if I deserved it. Seems like this ex members mission for the short time he was here was to muddy up the waters for several members. His negative feedback given to all members here in good standing should be removed IMO.

Is this a discussion about this one instance or are you looking for a policy?

Just pertaining to this one ex member.
I don't think a policy could be set as this is more of a case x case moderator discretion thing. I trust their judgement.

He has 5+ and 3- FB's. Hasn't been on the FFiles for 3+ yrs.

So just for clarification your one negative feedback is 3+ years old.
How many positives have you had since that time?
Has it affected your ability to do business?
Has anyone held it against you?
Are you OCD ? :-)

I'd let it go.

I would worry about it. It's an abuse of the system and sets an example that yes it's ok to lie and get away with it.

Yes, I'm OCD. That feedback is the one friggin board in my deck that won't lay flat!:D

No, doesn't worry me. I know that the members know I'm a member in good standing.
Yes, it bothers me that every time I do FB w/a member, there that 1- is.
The one damned fly in a 3K paint job.

Yeah sir. No one here would ever have looked at it with your fine reputation. All I had to see was the stupid screen name. I'd leave it. It's OK to make 99+ on a test.

With all due respect Larry I think your making much ado about nothing. Nobody is going to question your performance and it's not going to cost u a dime. The flaw in the paint is under the trunk lid.

It would chap my ass but the 1 neg feedback against all the other positives just makes that guy look like an even bigger @$$hole. When I look at marketplace stuff I always look at the negative feedback. Not because the guy I'm fixing to doing business with isn't trustworthy but just to keep a running list of people I want no part of dealing with is so easy to figure out this way. Hundreds of positives says it all. I wanna know who couldn't make it work with the guys that ALWAYS make it work with everybody else.

That's true. I have 1 GB member "non FALer" that I blocked from bidding on my stuff based on the fact he was a dead beat bidder on a auction of a honest dealer I've known for 29 yrs.

OK, I'll live with it. Thanks for the nice comments and advice from all.:bow:

Agreed, but I would also want the BS to be removed. I would look past it as a buyer but it would also bother me a LOT if it were on me and would want it gone also. My reputation is important to ME.
