A request? .... I think.

Postby badpenny » Fri Jul 05, 2013 9:38 am

I've just received an email from a collector in Americaland, seems jokey but puzzles me. !PUZZLED! So I am spreading the good word as requested. BP

Hey Mr Bad P you're a MOD. Spread the good word on your edge of the world. A machine for sale is always good to hear about, but saying you just spotted it when checking the link shows it's the same guy selling it STINKS.
Let's be nice to each other huh?

Odd.

Do you think he is trying to say that the chap who has 'just noticed' the machine for sale is the same chap as who is selling it?

Why is he upset about that?

Shilling for your own game under the guise of anonymity may be misleading but I don't think it reaches the level of "stink."
I'm always happy to learn of machines for sale that might be of interest but have escaped my attention, even if it's the seller hiding in the weeds who puts out the word. But then, I may be a little less ethically-minded that the chap who made the original comment.

I've been waiting for someone to point to the post by the guy who spotted the link by the same guy who smells really bad by the guy who doesn't punctuate well from lalaland clear, enough?!
