Maybe we should have a "public service announcement" warning Bartertown members not to deal with this guy. He might get some unsuspecting customers for the few hours his posts/advertising lasts. It can take a few hours for someone to find/delete his posts.
I guess he's just going to keep trying.
ITS A JULY MADNESS SALE!!!! :roll: (to celebrate being banned.)
He's shooting for the Hall of Shame!!!

Thanks for the email, Jay!

Jay emailed me links and all I can say is that stuff is craptacular!!!

If I sent minis to someone and got that in return, I'd be tempted to find them and punch them... and I'm no longer a violent man.

I watched both of their mini videos AND the terrain video...

After watching the mini videos, and seeing the quality of the vid's and the minis, I thought we were dealing with a couple of 14 or 15 year olds. the terrain video has one of 'em talking... He's probably 17 to 20... 21, tops, is my guess.

Blech.

Hire them and you get what you deserve.

I don't see any mention of McDoodad. I'm positive that's yet another incarnation of this twit, possibly the original one.

I do in the PM I sent to Lin, however they're too old for the cutoff to display apparently.

McDoodad: viewtopic.php?t=64067
ImperialBuyer: viewtopic.php?t=64135

I was negotiating with McDoodad on some Ork items he had up when ImperialBuyer arrived on the scene with a nearly identical haves/wants listing. He had many of the same grammatical mistakes, as well as both of the accounts refusing to use PayPal. Hardly concrete proof, but enough to warrant investigation IMO. This guy's no rocket scientist as he's used the same email addy on his multi accounts. Easy thing to check. I still have one of the PMs from McDoodad in my Savebox. I broke it off as it just didn't smell right.

I know it's poor form to comment on usernames, but i find the name McDoodad to be hilarious. I did a google search on it and the first link that came up was from scam.com. No, he wasn't being reported for scaming, he was warning others that the "7 day miracle cleanse" is a scam. I don't recommend you read that post - it's pretty much the definition of TMI.

Out of curiosity, in the McDoodad PM, is thee an email link? What email address is his feedback under, if you hit that link?
Eric

Oh... And I get a kick out of McDoodad, too. It makes me think of the old "Cleric Quintet" novels by R.A. Salvatore, set in the Forgotten Realms. One character was a dwarf and claimed to be a druid... except that he wasn't "all there," and pronounced it Doodad.
Oh... this was back when dwarves COULDN'T be Druids (Good old 2nd ed!).

No email linked to the account that I can access. Here's his only current post on the board: search.php?search_author=McDoodad

0 feedback, just like all of the other accounts.

So, I checked out that link. His account is, like, 6 months old.
I'm curious... What do you see as the connection?

Welcome to the hall of shame John. What a card... Hope he learns his lesson, but at this rate it doesn't seem he will.
