KJ, I just don't know what to say.
Jaydog, a regular on the forum and by all accounts a good guy, comes on here offering to share something rare he found with us all... and you knock everyone for their interest? And you knock the seller for even offering it? And you offend the seller at a level that causes them to retract their generosity?
Why? What purpose did that serve for you? I'd like to know.
You have everyone's respect for your cue repair skills, so why the sarcasm about someone else's generosity?
Sorry, I think an apology is due. That was miles out of line.
No one likes a knocker.
I know things get a little slow around here this time of year but let's not go making a mountain out of a mole-hill.
To be clear, I wasn't knocking anyone though you seem to think I was. Let's blame that on perception.
I expressed amazement that everyone up to that point was willing to jump on board to buy something they hadn't even seen yet.
That still strikes me as amazing.
Generally, when you offer something for sale you show a pic so the buyer has at least an idea of what they're buying.
Without the pic, you're buying a 'horse in the blind'. Was that terminology confusing to anyone??
Your own analogy was: "Like pigs at the trough". So now I get to be the bad-guy here. OK, I'll be your huckleberry.
Knocking people??? Where the hell did you get that??? I wasn't knocking anyone, I was expressing amazement.
Surely, an intelligent man such as yourself would know the difference.
At least I didn't refer to them as pigs.
In what way did I offend the seller? Obviously, the seller took offense because he wanted to.
I, like everyone else was asking for pics. 12-1/2 hrs latter he decides to post some.
Go over to the F/S section where they have a nifty little banner that says: "This thread is useless without pics".
I said the same thing except in my own charming style. My literary license doesn't expire.
"And you offend the seller at a level that causes them to retract their generosity?"
I see that your literary license is still very much valid as well.
His retraction was at best childish. "I'm taking my ball and going home".
And you want an apology for this??? Get real.
