To be honest all this thread crapping is absolute garbage… No one is making us buy this item we can simply Peru’s the thread and either buy if you would like or simply be quiet…. But pointing out what is wrong with the item and questioning the guys pricing on his thread simply wrong…. It would make more sense to simply pm the guy and make an offer based on what you deem to be a reason for de valuation of the item offered…. 

You hit the nail on the head. Thanks for saying out loud what need be said.

Guess what it comes down to is, if you cannot say something nice. In the TOS, it does mention somewhere about not bashing another's choice of audio equipment.

A little bit vague but, sure I have said something before along the line over time that was questionable.

And now coming down to perception of issue.

If issue it becomes is, garage sale is mostly a hands off over time for other than self moderation.

It has generally been left to members and hope it can remain so.

Have appreciated power to do our own thing here and would like it to remain mostly our members domain.

Now that I have taken a dump on OPs topic. All I got.

In all the years here, I have only called out one seller. I did it because he was offering the same speakers on CL for less than he was on this forum.... where people are very helpful.

It has never been cool to carry on like some have in this thread, period. Someone doesn't like the price, then don't buy it. Want to help the seller, PM the fellow member. If the price isn't right, the market will prove it, without belligerent remarks.

Boom, could not agree more, as I’m sure you can tell from my earlier post..

It was the test "Mule", but i guess it´ s not important enough for the museum, right?

It could be, we do like to focus on things that have a direct connection to PWK, and I am surprised about things all the time that I think are not connect, but in actuality, are very much connected.

Well @DCaIrvine so you want to poke the bar (that's how we pronounce bear in Texas). Got notice of your your haha reaction. I said don't post or react in this thread again.

 

Now you can join Bonehead/Knucklehead, do not post, reply, or react to anything in Garage Sale for a week, until after 10/2. Let's see if you can read and comprehend that.

Terrible show for this forum in this thread.  Had happened to me plenty of times from repeat morons. Sorry op, you perhaps have a great piece of history. Maybe you should keep it unless yo uare hurting for capital... 

Well I certainly wasn't aware of it, and I'm sorry that happened to you as well. There will not be at least two repeat morons going forward. As I said before, I will clean all of this up for the OP, unfortunately a lot of posts will have to go that were trying to be constructive.

Travis, you always do a great job, not poking at you. Just saying, in the light of this forum, poor taste to beat down a seller verbally in his own thread.  Sure, someone wants 5k for a pair of heresies, many might speak out negatively AND publicly.  That wasn't the case here with OBO.  BUY IT OR STFU.  Simple.
