Thumbs down Fuktards

Is it me or is this place turning into Craigslist? Every retard with a keyboard is buying or selling stuff and then being a complete douchebag.

It is very simple folks ... goes like this: You send a PM to someone if you are interested. You sort out the details in the PM and if still convinced it sounds good, you make plans to go see.

Here's where it gets tricky, so stay with me ... YOU ACTUALLY HAVE TO SHOW UP WHEN YOU SAY OR SEND A MESSAGE AND EXPLAIN WHY YOU CAN'T MAKE IT!

And now I'll totally blow your mind ... There are these things out now called phones. Yes, you can get in touch with people and ACTUALLY TALK!

iTrader is useless because you give someone negative or neutral for being a douchebag and they just leave retaliatory feedback so what good is that?

I remember the good 'ole days of GL4X4 when there was a fuktard/douchebag thread of people not to deal with. Here is my start:

El Jefe - this wanker stood me and Dune_Trash17 up 3 times! I leave a negative and he disappeared.
JeramyT - this cok sandwich said "Yeah, I am planning on meeting you Sunday afternoon" ... 3 PM's ... crickets ... Sunday afternoon since passed and he has checked his account twice since and read all my PM's. Afraid to leave feedback because I'll prolly get a retaliation.
ckhanna71 - We go back and forth for like 2-3 weeks and FINALLY agree to terms and are on for a weekend meet. E-mails me Friday that he sold it to his brother. Thanks for calling or contacting me first before selling it out from under me. I left a neutral and he leaves a retaliatory neutral.

I understand your frustration. I've been fortunate, met a lot of good people through this site. Unfortunately you'll always have douches.
My question to you, do you think putting this in the vehicles for sale forum helped prove your point?

Not sure yet. Maybe someone will see it (like a mod) and open a discussion about a fair iTrader system or bring back the list.

Considering all 3 of these people were from the Vehicles for Sale category, it is a start.

I was hoping there were fucktards for sale. Assholes and their false advertising.

I think it's the responsibility of the buyer to no show.

I had no problem dealing with ckhanna, and, selling out from under you sucks, except it sounds like he sold it to family which trumps your beef with him.

I bought some wheels from Immortal, and then 5 years later I got suckered into helping him move. What a douche.

I understand that, but if the roles were reversed, I'd have had the courtesy to call him first before selling it out from under him. I guess touche on me for being naive thinking everyone is decent and believing in a handshake and a man's word.

Welcome to the world of first person shooter games, texting and Obama!

How do you figure? He didn't answer contact of any kind asking what was going on until late each of the first 2 evenings when he said he couldn't make it. There were 2 of us that cleared our evenings out to meet with him only to be told around 8PM-ish that he couldn't make it.

He then has the nerve to PM me a few weeks later and expect I give him the same deal now that Dune_Trash17's Cherokee was sold. I told him to pound sand.

Don't forget the fact that we both caught him in outright lies ... the dumbass never thought that maybe Dune_Trash17 and I were talking and comparing notes on what he told each of us ...

I've pretty much given up on selling shit online. I'd rather just scrap it or throw it away than deal with selling it. Craigslist is a fucking joke. "Hai bro saw ur ad ill giv u $100 CASH" for something I'm asking $500 for.

I came outside the other day to find someone window peeping my garage. I'm positive it was someone from CL I talked to.

I've wasted way too much time sitting around on weekends waiting for someone to show up that never does. Not worth the time.

A lot of people truly feel they did nothing wrong when they do things like this. In today's world you honestly are unable to take many people's word for face value. Unfortunately many people on this site feel it is okay for others to act in this manner till it happens to them.

Most people that i have met from here have been great people but i have dealt with a few that have shown me the hard way to not go over and beyond for someone unless you have dealt with them before.

Yes.

Sell out from under to family OK if cash hasn't exchanged hands and you make potential buyer who was planning to cone purchase aware.

I can't tell you how many buyers have backed out of deals. If I have a cash in hand buyer it always beats out the guy who's coming tomorrow, especially if the cash incurrently hand buyer is a known commodity. Ie family.
