Revenge of the Sith / Re: Clone Trooper #6 - Worth Army Building
« on: April 2, 2005, 04:08 PM »
I'm not going to Army build this one - the giant gap between his legs is too much for me to drop a bunch of money on them.  Maybe if they go cheap.

As it stands - the SA clone is coming out and there's that Tank Gunner...those are the ones I"ll be after.

I'm going to have to tally officially later - but I'm somewhere in the neighborhood of $650.00

Sorry - I don't follow the question.

So Dale and I are the last of the Mohicans eh?

Maybe this is just all one brilliantly executed April Fool's gag courtesy of the Rebelscum staff.  Yeah... that's the ticket.

I'm not a catholic by any means but I had a chance to go to a Wednesday morning Mass three years ago in Rome - I'm glad that I did.  As far as Pope's go - he was among the best.

I'm worried that they'll fill his shoes with someone far more conservative though...

I hope that nobody here is mad at me for getting reinstated there.  The only reason I wanted to be was to keep in touch with the customizers there.  I doubt I will ever post in another section there again.

JD.com is where it's at.  I hope we get some more members here.

 :P

No one would be mad at you in the slightest.

I'd go a little further and say that Wiseacres has nothing to do with it either - I don't think anyone here should have a problem with the way he runs that website. :)

Even if they don't have a delete post function - I know there is an edit-post function and one could simply remove the item, ban the user, and leave the thread.

Oh. I have some interesting news, if I can find a link, about a certain service you can pay for that floods back spam to spammers 20 fold. I heard about it on the news a few days ago.

Most of the time SPAM is sent from addresses that are either unable to accept email or are unused after the mass emailings.  Also, most of the time requesting to have your name taken off of a SPAM email list only serves to confirm that your email is a valid one and you end up getting  a billion more crappy junk mails.

I'm sure that if something like that were done, Phillip could just delete freeze@rebelscum.com and create a new email address to send from the next time some toy company pays him out the whazoo to send out advertisements.

It was posted by "PDub". I got a screen shot of the post before it disappeared. It went quick. LOL

You'd think they could just delete the post in question and not the ENTIRE thread...  ::)

Wow - can't even talk about missing the people who have been terminated now?

I sent an email right after it happened to Dustin, and then Philip emailed me about it.  

I have just been reinstated, but still feel like this is a stain on the collecting community as so many people got the axe there that it just isn't funny.  And some people asked to be removed too.

There are some things that go on there that I don't like, so from now on the only posting I will probably do there will be in the customs and the trades section.  There are some good members there and I don't want to lose touch with them (but it seems like quite a few have made the switch to here).  I personally don't have a problem with anyone there, but the whole witch-hunt thing just makes me sick and leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth.

That being said, instead of 10% of my posts going here and 90% there, it will probably switch to 90% being here.  You guys are the best and I couldn't imagine not being part of the community here.

I know, some people will ask "Why would you even want to be reinstated after that????"  Only because there are some members there that I do like a lot; and I don't want to give up my friendship with them because of this - and mostly because I enjoy talking about customs over there.  I love it here even more, but I do wish there was some more traffic in our customs section.  

Trust me though, this is now my true home.

 :P


I'm feeling the same way at the moment.  I could get over the Spam although I took issue with the get-a-life stuff and the presence of my work email on the list... okay, we move on - but then banning all of these guys who had nothing to do with anything (yourself included) is beyond absurd.  Even if you are reinstated it's too little too late.  I'd prefer not to be banned over there for the same reasons you just gave - there are some good people there I'd like to keep in touch with, but my posting at Rebelscum will probably be limited to the local-finds section from here on out.

Amazing. KBZ, any answer on why your email was used?

Kevin

After waiting a little over a day with no response to the email, I sent a PM asking the question again.

I got a reply ironically saying that he didn't get my first email because his Spam filter probably caught it (hilarious in a few ways).  He asked which email address was the one in question.  I wrote him back with it and haven't heard anything else.  I'm assuming it's been removed - but I don't know one way or the other.
