    Yeah, you are on the scammers page a lot. Selling Gem 10s Molinas that are really 2s due to "suspicious bodily fluid" effecting the surface grade.


    Innocent until proven guilty! I believe you.

    Also in Beckett's prime they had 1 administrator/moderator, Christopher Borden. We all referred to him as C-Biddy. This guy was so cool and a lot of fun. He would post fairly often and pretty much let us do and say whatever we wanted. It felt like it was our boards and actually it was. And we policed ourselves.
    Eventually he moved on and the board starting going downhill from there. Lots of administrative changes, heavy handed moderators, suspensions on a regular basis even for things that were so ridiculously petty, plans to charge trading fees, etc.

    That's about all I can remember now about it's downfall but it was quite enough for me and tons of others obviously.

    Never was and never will be another message board that was as fun as that one in it's heyday.

Chris took the site you see here in a different direction than the other guy......and here we are 10 years later. Hard to believe its been that long.

    Mypens and I were then quasi partners. Then he got some bad advice from his friends when he didnít like the way I was running things. I explained that if he has an idea of what needs to happen then letís do it. No ideas came. Then he emailed what had become 3000 users an attempt to lure them away and I removed his access. Cold. Cut and dry. I am not sorry.

    I honestly didn't see that coming. My mind was blown...if this were a film I'd give it 3 stars. With the right casting I'd go as high as 4.

    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Yep. Pretty cool that he would show us a lot of the cards he had to sign.

    And a lot of members sent him cards to have signed.
