Adol, I'm just going to reply as briefly as possible about these things. Don't want to make this boring - not that it's not too late! ;-)
- The other forum badmouthed us WITHOUT coming here - so surely you should ask them why they didn't have the balls? Nothing to do with Dion, and years ago. I'm not badmouthing the forum, I'm merely voicing my disregard for their attitude. I'd give you specific examples of them doing that but they've made the forums viewable to registered members only, and there's no "forgot password" button on the sign in form - really friendly, that!
- Let's not go through everything you've said about Dion ;-)
- I'm not responsible for what others say. Please remember - this is the UNMODERATED thread. It's the one place we can all say what we like. On your other forum, it'd be said wherever. You're entitled to your opinion, others are entitled to disagree. You're entitled to state your point, others are entitled to argue with it. Despite it getting a bit petty with namecalling and such, that's still having an adult discussion.
If someone calls you something you don't like, I'd suggest either politely asking that they don't, or ignoring it. If it really bothers you, don't participate in the unmoderated forum. Notice how I handled both of you saying the photo was of me? I could have chosen to be as childish as you and said "No, it's of your Mum - how is she doing?" Now that would have been stupid. To be honest, I'm not proud of using the image, it's not something I generally agree with, but that just illustrates how stupid I believe this discussion has become.
- I totally agree - we don't have to have everyone's respect. All I was saying was that you had mine for your collection, but this petty squabbling diminishes my respect for you.
OK, so you may just do it now, but like I said - state your point, then stop. That's the grown-up thing to do. I'd have expected this of you 14 years ago, but not now.
- Dion has responded that the 50k order was for hundreds of items. The claim was that 5 CDs were missing. That's OK, it happens. It can be sorted easily, no? And apparently, the order with stuff written all over it was a different order. Why would you order several times from someone if you weren't happy with their service? Answer - you wouldn't!
- How is Dion supposed to make amends with people on a forum when they won't let him on there? Tell me that. And if you were in his shoes, wanting to make amends, and people like you just shouted at his every post calling him a liar, would you still want to make amends? What IS your idea of making amends, anyway? He's come back, he's sharing information and pictures with us and calmly discussing things. That's a pretty good start in my book. If your idea of making amends is him repaying you something you feel is owed, take that up with him privately. And on that note:
- Yes I'd be upset. Yes, I might mention it to people if the person was still selling. ONCE. If someone chose to believe that seller, I'd say "OK, that's your choice - don't say I didn't warn you!" I would definitely not say "NO! NO! NO! You are WRONG to trust him! He cannot be trusted!" It's their choice.
Incidentally, congratulations on getting SOMETHING back. Many of us have been scammed and received NOTHING. Look for the thread from that Austrian? guy who dealt with someone in the UK for a PS3 and didn't get a refund or his console - and it seems he doesn't have a leg to stand on legally! So again, if you do - congratulations for being in a better position than him!
I bought a piece of dev hardware off a German guy in the US. He never sent it. I e-mailed him. He apologized, said he was ill. Said he would find it and send it. It never happened. Eventually, his e-mail address stopped working and I couldn't find him at his address. Yes, I'm pissed off, but shit happens.
Is the person posting as Adol here one person, or is it still two brothers?
The reason I ask is that you keep contradicting yourself. Either you are two people, which would explain this, or you have some kind of multiple personality disorder (again, please don't take offence - I'm merely trying to work out why you don't remember my questions).
A few days ago (and a few pages ago), I listed the allegations from the NGF Bible, and asked you and Dion to comment on them. Here are your answers:
I would love to see the outcome of this case in a court. Please go ahead with it!! It would be an end to the argument finally!
