Hey add one to the list. MorningWood. It took this guy a month and a half to ship my axle to me. I sent him money within a week of contact. He is very slow to ship stuff and hard to contact. FYI.

shipping for an axle was prolly alot. and you prolly choose the slow way to ship it. which would take a month

The lack of communication is what seems to be the main issue with this one. It would have been better if the seller communicated a realistic shipping time for the axle. No one wants to wait over a month for something you already purchased. At least the axle was shipped and received. It would have been a different story if it wasn't

Nice post Doc, great analogy

I addressed that ignorant comment earlier on when JF members started comming together to support what's right. In addition, a dishonest seller I delt with before came clean about lying and apologized. The fact is, there's some people who won't change, and there's others that just don't really think about what they are doing... until someone steps up and addresses it.

Yea it was lack of communication, he is a very hard person to get a hold of sometimes.

Thread revival... I hope we can do good. As for actually doing good, I like what Doc said about it, it is like that little fine print. I mean, we essentially banned Divebum from JF, not from an actual ban, but because he couldn't handle the guff he was getting.

I hope this also reminds people to keep al information when dealing online. I just received a seatbelt from a member here, and he sent it out without even asking for a payment, then I sent him cash before I recieved it. I wasn't really worried, and I give my greatest thanks to Dendrophobe for his help and trust. Dealing with people like that makes me see some hope for this world.
