Oh, and I am speaking from personal experience, try reading a couple of threads.
Yes, you are being irrational. You are accusing someone of willingly and intentionally seeking out people to rip off. I don't know if any of this was happening or not, as I have had no dealings and I am not a vendor here. From the information I have received up to this point, I see some vendors who have some very poor communication skills and business sense. I have seen nothing that indicates anyone here is a scammer.

I understand that on the internet it is very easy to jump on a bandwagon like this and start throwing around words like scammer, but everyone needs to calm down a minute and think things through before they go accusing anyone of anything.

And if you had read my post you would have seen that I specifically stated that I don't know if you were involved or not, and that what I was saying applies to everyone.

Further, if you are someone who has a dispute you have to be certain that what you are saying is factual and there is no speculation or accusation. This is important for YOUR CASE. If you are seen as someone who is irrational and jumping to conclusions based on an emotional response then YOU lose credibility.



Kristen: I apologize, I did not know that your issue was still in the air. The last I heard about it things looks like they were going to be taken care of.


As for the impression that we are somehow supporting vendors as trustworthy or pleasant to work with;

as far as vendors go gencoupe.com is an ad venue. We are not sharing in the business. We offer vendors ad space. That ad space includes the ability to list their items for sale and we provide the vendor tag as a means for users to know that the person posting is a paying vendor.

This does not preclude the concept of caveat emptor. This is no different than a television station selling ad space to a vendor.

If a vendor is found and proven to be dishonest and to be scamming our users you can be certain that they will be dealt with, up to and including them losing their vendor status. This is not some system where we blindly backup any vendor who pays to be here. Our job is to moderate and administrate the forums, which means making sure that ALL of our members are treated fairly and evenly on the forums.

When it comes to sales made on a vendors site outside of gencoupe.com, we have absolutely zero control over that. If this hurts someones feelings, I apologize, but it is the extent to which we can act.

Just to mention it. The issue with iTrader came up after everything else. It is a bug in the software and like Nadeem stated, we have disabled the iTrader system until it can be resolved what is going on.

No moderators made changes to any existing reviews. This came as just as much a surprise to us as it has to everyone else.

Further, like N20 said, if you have an iTrader review or comment that was edited, please PM a moderator or Admin about it specifically.

I love how so many people on this forum, including the people that run it, are willing to focus on 3 or 4 words from one post and completely ignore entire threads.

Basically; whatever Fleshbox, whatever.

Considering my entire point was about one post, it seems to make sense that I would continue to speak in regard to that post, but if you feel like you need to go there to make a point, that's fine.
