I agree they both have their place in the hobby BUT facebook welcomes NEW guys with open arms while oldgas rejects them as threats or possible pickers! As a 10 year veteran member I have seen oldgas treat the new guys like ***** over and over again!
I was NEW 10 years ago and felt the same sting from members because I was selling alot of what I found. I learned real quick! I treated everyone fair and worked my butt off to find RARE stuff and prove my place in this hobby. 16 years full time and $1,000,000 in buys and sales and NEVER a problem for this picker/collector!
So a couple years ago I started pointing out the wrongdoings of veteran members towards the new guys in hopes things would change BUT they havent! They have gotten worse! I even sent Jim several examples and he said, Pickers arent liked on here??? WOW
I have all the respect in the world for oldgas and its members! That is why I tried to help with this huge problem, BUT instead I am the bad guy for pointing it out...
ONLY on oldgas is PICKER a cussword
