moderators referee marketplace deals?

NO.

Of late, people have gotten the notion that if they have some marketplace deal that goes sideways, that the moderators are here to step in and sort it all out.

NO.

If there is clear evidence of stealing, or fraud, post it in one of the forums, or keep it to yourselves. The moderators may read about it, or they may not.

We don't generally allow thieves, cheats, or liars to run around here unchecked. But, if you think we want you to forward to us some long chain of emails, personal messages, or whatever; and you think that we are going to go gathering evidence for you, you are mistaken.

You're all big boys.
Sort it out yourselves.

The CMP forums just eliminated the feedback section for this same reason.

Allegedly grown men whining to the Mods.

You can enforce the rules can’t you? If not why have them? Seen a few shady things going on in here lately. Post something in the wrong place and your all over it. Fine……but. Violate the rules of the MP and nothing…..notta…..
We have some great folks here, always have but there seem to be more and more not so great. Rules without enforcement are a joke….both in the real world and here. Don’t get me wrong…I’m not an Iron Fist guy but man…It’s too bad people can’t just all be cool….but they can’t or wont…whatever. We have rules here….they are posted right there for all to see. How bout we all play by them?...huh….not just some of us and not just some of the rules. Or remove em and declare a free for all….as long as we all know that’s the deal. Just sayin...
And no.....I have never ask a mod for anything.

actually been happening a bit lately and VERY blatantly in our face

the one that really stands out and has got me confused was a non-contributor named walter representing a big company not even paying vendor status posting a bogus ad here recently for weeks and weeks who did NOT honor his price he advertised nor did he correctly state the condition of the product, did NOT send the product paid for in a timely manner all the while collecting several thousands of dollars from our trusting members.........etc.

kinda strange he got away with all that underhandedness, very strange indeed

no tonfoolery points for good 'ole walter?, gosh, what gives - a little bit of preferencial treatment possibly? He proved himself a liar and thief and his thread is probably still not locked - I gave up waiting for his thread to be locked after several weeks, whatajoke

Remember this:

I handle NO ASPECT of anything having to do with FAL Files money.

I don't collect fees, and I don't levy bills.

Jen - and ONLY Jen - handles the money end of things around here.
If you think somebody is exploiting the site financially, I'm the wrong person to come to.

I believe JimmBob's issue has more to do w/ Walter Chows flagrant violation of Marketplace rules; than the fact that he did not register as a manufacturer who advertises in the marketplace & pays money to do so

Yes, I also got ripped off by Entreprise, as a result of their underhanded BS.:

By the way, JimmBob; Walter Chow is THE OWNER of Entreprise arms, & always has been.
Scumbag, as far as I'm concerned. He should change his name to HESSE, or GOUGER.

Jugrunner sent me a stock, no charge, and he paid shipping, no cost out of my pocket.

I asked him thrice to send me his address so I could send him a gift, but he wouldn't give it to me.

Can I give him negative feedback?

Can WEG make him send me his addy so I can send his "thank you" gift?

Who can arbitrate this and make Jugs do what he is supposed to do?

Jugs has done similar shenanigans and tomfoolery to me - I don't know why we tolerate that rapscallion !

Hows about I give you my address and you can send ME his gift, that way you won't have to shoulder that burden of guilt yer laboring under

That whole Entre'prise deal was a clusterfork for sure, but it did surprise me that he got away with it without being a vendor.

If your skin is that thin you need to go someplace else. If you're the kinda guy whose only post in a forum is a free ad and you still have the gall to bitch about in on the very month you sign up,.....you need to go someplace else.

Otherwise, welcome to the forum. Lotsa fine people here.

Yeah. And we don't take no snowflake shit here. We'll trolldafuck out of ads until we get a whack on the hand.

After that we will take it to the basement and you won't get to see us talking smack

How ironic that Mr bravo619 / two bravo complain about trolling in the marketplace. This asshole bothered the hell out of me via private message because I would not sell him a norinco underfolder for $1000 less than I was asking and then began trolling me and threatening me via pm on Bayoushootet and Ak files.
He ended up getting banned from bayoushooter over it.
If you look at his history, all he does is buy stuff and sell it for top dollar, way over what it's worth , he contributes nothing to any firearms board he is on except to waste bandwidth and sell stuff.
Btw I did get my asking price of 2750$ for the gun
