    Interesting IOM connection,

    Sam?

    Joe?

    Seems to me there’s a simple rule for the classifieds here;

    Do not buy from anyone who doesn’t contribute to the rest of the forum. Classifieds only = hard to trust, IMHO. With the vast amount of stolen kit out there…..

    1st guy appears through reading posts to be operating two logins, could just be coincidence/communication thing i suppose.

    Check difference between threads started and posted on activity.

    It does look like double logins doesn’t it?

    40′ barge pole anyone?

    Is that an ISg 40′ barge pole? I ended up going ISG 05 with my barge poles 😉

    People can get away with this and yet TJ is still banned? It’s a disgrace.

    If you look at the 2 separate flickr pages, they’re both Joe Harrison

    so definitely double login, probably a trader – as said

    It’s the second time I concur with CFh, too mcuh for my liking. Since the “new” forum the classified lost it’s touch. But I only use to buy to people who post on the bike forum.

    Juan, mon vieux, you know I’m right sometimes…!

    I propose allowing TJ back in to the all encompassing rugby thread at least! Not sure who else got banned, but, risking talking about bannings, I can’t imagine anyone went as far as the East London One did to earn any banning of that magnitude. He earned his. Let them back in.

    Am I allowed to ask why TJ got banned? Serious question.

    As for the sellers above, I take the approach that almost everything available here and on ebay, if it is ‘BRAND NEW’ or ‘NEVER BEEN USED’ is likely going to be stolen.

    But I could be wrong.

    Constant arguing I would have thought

    if it is ‘BRAND NEW’ or ‘NEVER BEEN USED’ is likely going to be stolen.

    I just sold something under that description, and it wasn’t, promise! 😮

    I sell quite a bit of stuff brand new – it’s not stolen!

    Not on here, but I sell loads of stuff on eBay thats brand new and never been used.

    None of it is stolen.

    Lets face it, a fair amount of ‘for sale stuff’ on here is hardly used… this is STW after all.

    I miss Justa and his bargains 🙁

    The ADs have now been pulled, I guess the mods didn’t like the look of them either

    He was idiot bait, and it proved easier to ban the bait than the idiots.

    IMO.

    Get a grip, TJ got banned for starting fights in an empty house. You can’t expect the mods to vet all sellers. Much as I think this place is poorer for the lack of the Edinburgh one, I see why the mods had to do it, but we have to exercise some caution dealing on here, as you would anywhere on the net.

    I’m currently advertising a brand new Hope hub in the classifieds, it’s not stolen.

    To be fair though, I’ve just bought a load of kit off here and bike radar and been totally blown away by the attitude of the sellers. Honestly couldn’t have been more helpful!

    Tj got banned because his view dared to challenged mark’s was the opposite of what anyone else said, regardless of the details, purely because he loved arguing on the Internet

    Tizzzzle he was one of those big hitter types, a dying breed thankfully. This place is much better without a few of them.
