The people that are not coming through with their side of the deal, or who don't practice good business and social ethics are ruining the integrity of this forum. You guys make doing any kind of legit business on this forum difficult because you are destroying the bond that brings us together here.

Get your sh*t straight or get out.
it sucks, alot of people get burned via online as well as these online forums.

Wow Phil, you almost made me cry with your sentiments
just kidding your right on cept you left out your OSO sista's

I have both bought and sold quite a few things via OSO and have NEVER had a problem with anyone. Now, is that because I was lucky or because I did my homework before engaging in a deal, who knows!

My .02 cents....

Joe

P.S. Not to mention, made a LOT of good friends along the way!!! Even a few Apache guys!

Well for one.....all the threads get deleted anyway and we never find out what the real story is...

Whether it be good or bad, some closure would be nice!

Yeah, I gotta have my Network Admin block the OSO domain so I can focus on work and close some more deals!

Alright guys....I wasn't trying to beat anyone up, and I certainly won't allow a few bad apples to ruin the bunch.

There is a world of knowledge here, and I too have met many fine people through OSO. I appreciate each and every thread. As for my posts...I really don't have the boating technical knowledge to offer any valuable input, so I have preferred to keep quit, listen, and learn.

I started the thread because I am aggravated that some people would consider "stealing" from a fellow OSO member. I just don't see any point in tarnishing your name for a few bucks.
