I really doubt Philip will ban threedarths. He'll get a small vacation and will be back as a mod.
I remember my dream now.

Wonder if Philip will follow though with his statements in other threads about banning anyone caught scalping? 

Doubtful.  Mainly because there are so many people posting there and it has become such an absolute cesspool of "collectors" there's no way the staff could keep up with it all.  It doesn't help when they turn a blind eye to some of their more prolific posters.  I remember MisterKenobi boasting that he got some Lava Reflection Vaders before they were actually available and was going to put them on ebay shortly after making that post so he could make money to buy other items coming out for ROTS.  As I recall, nothing happened to him.

There are just so many idiots on that board.  I can't believe so many people are defending this guy.  Saying things like "well, he didn't scalp on this board, so its ok".  Scalping is scalping, it does not matter if you go straight to ebay or try doing it on a collectors board.  The jerk even has an ebay store.  He is scalping over a dozen animated Fett maquettes as well.  All his ebay prices are inflated.  This guy is a professional scalper hands down.

Nothing ever happens to that guy, no matter what he says.  And he arrogantly says nothing will ever happen to him.  I just ignore all of his comments now.

I ignore him (and pretty much all of Rebelscum) as well, I just used him as an example of how scalping goes on over there and is even boasted about and nothing is done.  Now whether it's due to volume of traffic at the site, moderator apathy, or a combination of both is another question.

Philip suspended "BranNutz" for posting "Who is Darth Borat blowing to win every raffle he enters?" here.  DarthBorat was bragging that he's won every GG raffle for a clone commander so far (4 for 4) while BranNutz was posting how he hasn't won a single raffle for anything.

So, in a really whiny move, Darth Borat starts this thread just to cry about the quote.  This coming from the guy who can't let a thought pass through his head that doesn't end up as a post.  In the 8 months he's been there he's reached almost 3000 posts.  I swear when he came out of the chute back in December posting like that, I though he was Greenday.  Made about as much sense, but with better spelling.  Philip took notice and dealt out a punishment.

Anyway, BranNutz will be back soon and Darth Borat has marked himself as a :'(.

Always good times in the RS GG thread ;).  No wonder people are fleeing that board for GentleGiantCollectors.com

The regulars on the GG boards of Rebelscum should get together with the regulars on the TAC boards and compare who has the heavier menstrual flow.  I've never seen so many whiny, cry baby, suck-ass pussies than on those two boards.

Add the modern classifieds. Every time some calls someone else on scalping, about three or four different people take it personally and vehemently defend the scalpers.

I have to agree.  I obviously spend WAY too much time over there, but the becoming-all-too-typical attitudes of a lot of today's collectors really hits my last nerve.  It almost makes me ashamed to share the same hobby with these ******* pansies.

I don't think much has changed really in recent years.  There have always been dipshits over there, simply because being the biggest Star Wars collector forum on the internet, they're going to attract the biggest number of dullards.  The bigger it gets, the more dipshits there will be, and unfortunately they are usually the guys who just type whatever incomprehensible bull**** happens to be going through their mind at the time.

But that guy "tenike1" brought the community to a new low.

Without restrictions or limitations, a single person could clean that whole board up if they wanted to quite easily.  You just need the freedom to do the cleansing, and nobody telling you who you can/can't ban...  It'd really be quite easy, but it's a matter of wanting quality over quantity, and not the opposite.

And monoitoring people who consider themselves above the rules of the community b/c they have "connections" to the Admins over there.

Amen to that. I'm glad he hasn't been active for awhile, I was getting real tired of his melodramatic dribble. Still, his strange Hasbro conspiracy theories were entertaining.

I'm almost sure he's been banned, or at least suspended without a reactivation date.  I hope that dude's parents have him on meds.
