Can you post his contact information for everyone?

That would be a huge help.

Any Negatives or Neutrals? *You* ship first, regardless of rating!

We had 2 good transactions, but I see that some other people are having trouble finalizing their deals with you. I'm sure you know that Bartertown works because members trust each other. Anything that damages that trust is a threat to Bartertown itself and Bartertown is important to me.

That being said, people have asked me to provide them with your address and any other contact information I have so that they can resolve their disputes with you. I am reluctant to do so, but I am going to send what I have to the mods as a PM and they can decide what to do with it.

Please resolve your trade disputes. You seem like a stand up guy.

I've sent his contact info to MM and Lin via PM. Good luck everyone sorting this out. What a mess.

We have 2 new, active, spamming accounts.

Unfortunately, Watchmen don't have the ability to do anything about it that will help.

For now, just ignore them (you can also put them on your "foe" list).

Lower rating? You ship first.

Give me a sense of humor Lord. Give me the grace to see a joke.
To get some humor out of life and pass it on to other folk.

I think what this situation needs is some imagination.

Want my help with a BTR or backout? All messages sent/posted should be in CHRONOLOGICAL order. Otherwise, I just won't read it.
