From previous posts it looks like Rom was hoping to bag one of the christmas vesuvius bargains and that's why he was selling his HX. As Moultram announced this morning he'd bagged the last vesuvius on offer I think Rom's withdrawal of the sale is basically because he lost out, not because of the faff over £25.

 

To then pass that off as corruption in the forum is probably just sour grapes.

 

 

Purely a personal assumption.

Personally the rules are clear, sensible and work fine for me. Rather than all the discussion over the precise legality or enfoceability of them I think it's better to focus on the tremendous amount of good will that accompanies most sales, including the forum courier offers from members with nothing to gain personally. This really is a very unique environment for buying and selling and I for one would like it to stay that way, even if it does occassionally cause a bit of Eastenders drama.

I did see that myself.

 

I think the inference was he should have had first dibs on the ACS special as he posted on the open thread first rather than PMing Pablo directly as the successful candidate did.

 

This combined with his historical experience and current sale drama has led to where we are now.

 

It's a shame as people will always focus on the negative rather than the positive stuff your point out in your post.

That inference doesn't scan. The successful candidate posted openly on the ACS thread before rom which legitimately puts him ahead of the cue.

I think Rom was inferring that fact the deal was concluded via PM rather than openly on the sale thread @ashcroc There was also the sale of the Super Jolly but any PM activity there appears to have been totally innocent. Sounds as though Rom took it all very much to heart given a previous bad experience and has voted with his feet. Who knows.

That's possible though the ACS ex-display sales have always been a bit of an enigma with their own way of doing things slightly outside standard forum rules. Strictly speaking, they shouldn't be in that section due to being a business but where else would it go for people to see it?

Is @MildredM in the 10,000 Club or the 100,000 Club? (Just how old is she?)

Scrunching my Izal :)

 

My dad used to get that from the railway. At least my mum insisted on having normal loo roll as well. I used to use it as tracing paper as a kid.

Input: 'Terranovered’ Versalab M3  + Customised Mazzer Major + Niche

Output: Slayer One Group + La Pavoni + V60 + AeroPress + Syphon + Bialetti Induction Moka Pot + Bialetti Mucka Express + jar of instant for visitors..
