Clinton,ClintonMills said:I have to agree with Justin 100% here. Marc Moser(discowookie) ripped off thousands of dollars from people in this very community. And to be quite frank, I was very disappointed in how that whole situation was handled by the moderator of this forum. Chris, please explain to me why you feel that locking down a thread down at 500 posts is worthy of action yet the Marc Moser situation required no action. Several requests were made to pin a bad seller thread in this forum and you refused to do so. And now that you are considering it you are still refusing to list Moser's name. I guess I am just confused by your role as moderator, since you flat out refuse to warn people in this community about one of the biggest forgers and frauds to hit the world of autograph collecting in recent memory.GenoRules said:What a joke this statement is. This forum has become a real shady place. Chris, stipulating the member must be currently active to be added to a fraud list serves no one but the thiefs. Your motivation is transparent to everyone, you don't want to name him as a thief to protect people against him because he's your friend.. The guy still exists and still can rip off new people to this hobby. You being his friend is really going to be the motivating factor behind not including 'past' RS members on the list?Chris Wyman said:That particular (former) member wouldn't fall under the category of "currently active" though. If there was such a list, it would only include current active members.emotionalvampire said:I personally have been lucky and not dealt with any on here.
Im sure others might be in touch though, especially those involved in the discowookie con.
By the way I know this post is going to really infuriate you. I fully expect you to get rid of me. I know you can't take when people criticize your 'leadership' in public.
Regardless Chris your decision on only including current members in a 'beware' thread will prove to be very unpopular. Just ask the people who use this forum man.
This place is not what it used to be. And the politics and behind the scenes, backroom deals that all went on after CV and the Discowookie fraud is the biggest factor in the downfall of this once great forum.
Rebelscum is a great site, and other sections of the forums have their acts together with bad trader threads. This forum however has fallen hard.
Please read my above post to Justin. I will also add that for a long time, it was an opinion war going back and forth. A handful of people felt one way and a handful of people felt the other way. I was not going to step in as if I was the deciding factor in such a big situation. I do not call myself an autograph authenticator because I am most certainly not. There are a few people who do and when you've got a few of the more prominent authenticators in the business arguing back and forth and disagreeing about certain pieces, that's one tough call to make. I suppose I could have flipped a coin...but that wouldn't have solved anything.
