Dolls in general / Re: Sad story
« Last post by noquiexis on March 09, 2018, 06:59:58 AM »

     The scuttlebutt in the ODC chat room and the posts on Mike Tango's topic is that YKW is a disreputable doll flipper - he buys used dolls only to sell them at a higher price. This is also known as "scalping". ODC rules for The Auction Block stipulate that photos or descriptions of damage must accompany any sales post. I almost never look at the used doll board, so I cannot verify whether these pictures exist or not.

     If Prizmgirl posted such pictures when she sold the doll, it would have been a simple matter to link to those photos. Apparently Mike Tango saw her post, but was out-bid for her doll by YKW. Since YKW was the current seller, it fell on him to posts pictures and descriptions of the damage. I doubt if he did, since Mike Tango drove down from Canada without knowing the condition of the doll.

     Frankly, I do not know why the ODC owner and moderators permit YKW to continue doing business there. I do not have all the facts, so maybe there is more to the story. Neither do I want to launch my own investigation into YKW's business practices. I do realize that the moderators are all unpaid volunteers, and they have their own lives to lead. Such is life.

Where does YKW get off talking about 'good & decent' and calling ANYTHING a 'cruel hoax'? Has he refunded Mike's money yet ???

a) I believe the story

b) I hope Mike does indeed get his refund

c) This is a 'very' bad doll buying experience. How many 'less' bad experiences must other people have for all potential buyers to fully understand the risks. My personal opinion, confirmed by my personal experience (sample of ONE, so take with grain of salt) is that the doll hobby is a 'dirty business'. With the amount of money involved, the 'wise' choice is to only buy from vendors with pristine reputations. My personal experience is that, though I have had several other problems with doll purchases, two of those problems have been caused by misrepresentations on the part of the vendors. The only vendors I can recommend as not having misrepresented anything to me are 4woods and Ruby. Just sayin'

More than two months and .... crickets. I sent a second email in mid-February. Somehow I doubt I'm the only person who has requested a refund and received no response of any kind.

Senior Wit

1. I changed my car horn to gunshot sounds. People get out of the way much faster now.

2. Gone are the days when girls used to cook like their mothers. Now they drink like their fathers.

3. You know that "thingy" little feeling you get when you really like someone? That's common sense leaving your body.

4. I decided to stop calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

5. Old age is coming at a really bad time. When I was a child I thought "nap time" was a punishment. Now, as a grownup, it feels like a small vacation.

6. The biggest lie I tell myself is..."I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."

7. I don't have gray hair; I have "wisdom highlights." I'm just very wise.

8. Teach your daughter how to shoot, because a restraining order is just a piece of paper.

9 If God wanted me to touch my toes, He would have placed them on my knees.

10. Why do I have to press one for English when you're just going to transfer me to someone I can't understand anyway?

11. Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice.

12. At my age, "getting lucky" means walking into a room and actually remembering what I came in there for.

13. I am what is called a "seenager" (senior teenager).
I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 60 years later.
I don't have to go to school or work.
I get an allowance every month.
I have my own pad. I don't have a curfew. I have a driver's license and my own car.
I have an ID that gets me into bars and the whiskey store.
The people I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant.

14. Life is great. I have more friends whom I should send this to, but right now I can't remember their names.

:P :P :P
General Discussion / Rant about stupidity

In a recent post 'over there', some newbie said "As of December 27th 2017, the CREEPER Act was put into action making it illegal to purchase dolls under 4 ft tall afaik in the usa". For reference, here is the status of the CREEPER Act as reported on the Federal portal (took 2 minutes to find) NOT illegal to etc etc.

'We' complain OFTEN about how we are misrepresented in the consensus public perception. Well, we are just as f--king stupid as 'they' are when we fail to get OUR facts straight and run off with BS that's just .... not true. BobRoss, if you read this I assume your heart is in the right place. But do the 2 minutes of homework and get your facts straight. That applies to everyone else, too.

Piracy on the high seas will not be tolerated!  :scold:

     Shawnturner is no more. None of his posts had anything to do with the intent of this website or this forum.

     His post of 19 Feb 2018 on the Tech Talk board was about "How to burn QUAD FLAC" did not fit anything on this website or forum. It also contained some horse shit about Credit Union finances. I removed his links from that post after moving it to the trash bin.

     His post of 19 Feb 2018 on the Anatomical Doll board was about "How can I seed my own torrent?". This indicates absolutely no regard for the subject of the board. I removed his links from that post after moving it to the trash bin.

     His post of 19 Feb 2018 on the Inflatable Dolls board was about "Sound Quality??. This indicates absolutely no regard for the subject of the board. I removed his links from that post after moving it to the trash bin.

     Regular Members of this forum will note that the Trash Bin is accessible only to Administrators and Moderators. After a respectable amount of time, the posts above will be forever deleted from the forum.
