Criticizing items offered for sale or the asking price in the topic offering the item for sale will not be tolerated. This forum is for buying and selling, not for cutting down value, condition or someone's reputation.

In the future this kind of unacceptable activity will be deleted and the member involved will risk temporary or permanent suspension.

Members and non-members who see unacceptable messages are encouraged to send me a note about it. Click on "Contact" at the very top line of any Shop Talk page.

Make an offer for the item if you think the price is too high. If it is not accepted or counter-offered, just walk away. Attacking the seller, his price or his item is not an acceptable response.

Why wait? It's not like Pablo hasn't already done this kind of thing before.
It's kind of like he is "Mr. Peabody" and all the rest of us are "Sherman".
It's nice to see that minuteman remains a class act.

I noticed that Pablo had no qualms about not being civil to minuteman, in more than one post. Roadrelics, it seems strange that you didn't ask for civility from Pablo when he was directing his posts towards minuteman and his sign. I guess that concept of civility is a one way street.

Darryl,
Thanks for your voice of sensibility and common sense.

It seems to me that Jim Potts clarified the intent of the category and put this issue to bed. An independent observer might conclude that those who continue to take pot shots really intend to keep the issue alive and instigate further controversy.

As for a previous post…
Mr. Peabody? Doesn’t that essentially describe me as a “genius” by association?? I’m touched by that analogy and your thoughtfulness.

Oh Great, Bob Richards is back stalking me & my posts again... ....

jkyocom, you are right, "tact" is a good thing & i am really trying to use it here...

thats great Rich B., it just shows tact & ethics don't go hand in hand; you can have, or not have any combination of the two & if your really bad, you have neither

Stalking you, you truely are a joke. You and Paul, keep calling people names, belittling them and making comments about them. You and Paul have done it to Chad, minuteman, Armistadi, myself and others and this list is just from just before IG. When called on it, you use terms like civility towards those you call friends when it comes to being suspended. You did it again. You didn't ask your friend Paul to be civil towards minuteman and his sign but, when huskeybob rightly pointed out that Paul has been warned before about personal attacks on this forum, you say there should be civility. If I get removed for my views so be it, but personal attacks must be stopped, and stopped fairly. I might come off as somewhat brusque, and yes I guess that is my attitude when I see others making fun of someone. We are all here to share a love of collecting "gas and oil" items, no matter how big or small the collection or how much money one has to spend. No one has the right to put someone down because of their views and comments. If I'm suspended for my comments, at least I went out telling the truth, and what did Rodney Dangerfield say? Oh yeh, "I've been thrownout of better bars than this one before".

Jim stated very clearly what is acceptable and what the cosequences are for anacceptable behavior are. Yet the bickering continues. I'm going to lock this topic while the moderators decide on appropriate action.
