I have no intention of removing this thread. I will say I made it clear in the first post these were being sold for a buddy. Paly was and still is a buddy.


I know of about a dozen times when a former member has rd-registered here and I've never felt it was my responsibility to out them unless they had a track record of fucking over members here. Paly didn't have that track record. He and Ghandi were both banned for posting their opinions in a thread on the law Vegas massacre; a thread stating it was seeking opinions.

And since we're being clear, a few additional things: 
1. You knew within a very short period of time posting up your interest who the seller was.  It didn't bother you then because apparently $135 shipped was considered a pretty good deal by you. 
2. Your friend does have every right to resell stuff he's bought.  I saw his listing, and he initially misrepresented the quality of these trucks, misstating, among other things, the bushings were NOS GW bushings.  It took him a few days to correct that even after it was pointed out to him.  There are dozens of threads here about sellers misrepresenting OG gear on eBay and elsewhere and BDS members pointing it out.  That doesn't make your friend a bad person, but calling someone out on misrepresenting something has often been celebrated within this site.  It doesn't change just because you know him.
3. And not defending anyone threatening anyone else either. Never really known Paly to be that kind of keyboard warrior anyway.  But if that indeed did happen, maybe your friend needs to report that behavior to eBay instead of to you?

Now you're just being silly Gary. It is Wes 's site and he can do basically what he wants. The sale was 100% transparent to you as the buyer and from whom you were buying from. You knew Paly's status but that didn't prevent/stop you from reaping the benefits of a good deal. I said I was selling for a buddy which was and is true. There are literally dozens of previously banned members here. That's not my problem to fix, but apparently you having a friend who's an asshole you feel is worth defending, makes you feel justified for naming one of those former members. Think your dickhead friend is on the up and up? Ask the guy to forward you unedited eBay messages between him and Paly. Then either come back here and delete some of your comments, apologize, or just shut up about the whole damn
thing.

Now that would be a good registry; this is something that we have to do in business environments where we have many different systems that have common users. No matter how hard folks try to match the names in each they always get it wrong, or we mostly just need their ID's to cross utilize the data. so a good registry that connects the dots is always helpful 


first in the list  as exposed here is 3ylap -- palydaxjones

OSPT - can you ask your mate if he'll sell them back to you, and you can sell them to me for $135? Where did that post go?

i reckon they looked better to start with personally,a good honest truck with the early kingpins [pre support bracket] and early base plates which have all been swapped out ,so they arent the same truck at all really, the only thing the same still is the hangers which have now been painted,all the good parts have been kept

Probably not a great idea Hank, IMO. There are threads on this site identifying reregistered users who have a history of fucking over members. Think Olmstead brothers. That's not been done for those where there was a misunderstanding or difference of opinion.

I'm not picking on Paly cause I like him too, but a registry of the pussheads that keep coming back, like the glassdickblower sneaking in and getting bro deals and then profiteering on the bay,

we could also help Wes by adding in names of the dickheads we are tired of and want banned; then it could be up to those users to add in the do-over names....

just saying that if there are "dozens" lurking around that should be gone, we ought to do the right thing and post them up so we can clean house....

They didn't sell on E-Bay. They are now on FaceBook for $275.
