    Question Pity the cliques

    Seems to me that what we have digressed in this thread to one of cliques.
    Either you are part of one or want to be. Both positions are intellectually indefensible.

    I must not qualify? Having been "in this thread" I'm sure no clique type...Count me out of your e.g. as I don't join stuff-except MOA?
    I thought the digression was more toward "funny HaHa machines"?

    I've bought and sold a lot of BMW stuff here and on the BMWST forum. Every transaction has gone well. Both parties happy. No BS.

    Maybe I'm just lucky?
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    No, you aren't lucky, unless I am too. That is why this sort of thing was so remarkable I posted about it.

    I did complain to IBMWR admin about it, and the ad was pulled. They agreed that a deal is a deal, and this sort of thing is unacceptable

    So, logically speaking... IF the Administrators at IBMWR admit that this aforementioned behavior occurred on their BMW-oriented website, and it is considered unacceptable, THEN, through guilt-by-association, some BMW riders must also be contained within that sub-group of low-life scooter trash. You have proof.

    Of course eBay maintains the same policy with regard to changing the conditions of a sale, after the sale.

    Having been on ebay as a regular for a bit it has it's share of real world vagaries. On some problems there they(which seems to mean the Indians lately that answer the phone- in India, of course) have stepped up & made it right(ebay or the buyer/seller) and on a few its been a bummer. No place else like it though for MC parts! Be they BMW or other...
    As for "better,more honest,nicey nice transactions within the MOA-well I've had not many but were ok & I suppose you're ods are slightly better than "outside" transactions but that's due to elimination of 14 yr old bidders,village idiots,etc., is my notion.
