That is a ridiculous thing to say to you. Not that a moderator should get involved very often but I wouldn't mind asking that member to explain that comment? You guys really need to let a moderator know if someone is acting way out of line.

I just finished reading through this thread and just wanted to thank everyone for the support. I didn't realize I had that many people here that wanted me here. I am going to stick around because you are all right... I should not let one person ruin it for me. I do love this hobby too much.

I've enjoyed your posts and your passion and hope you stick around. I know that new people can sometimes rub people the wrong way leading to some personal attacks, but I think you've settled in nicely and are an asset to the board. I'd try the best you can to ignore people that are negative and just keep being you.

I'm mostly a browser, only an occasional poster, but amongst the many friendly, informative members there also seems to be a fair amount of arrogant and/or cranky members, and those who are both are brutal.

Just remember that it's a hobby and supposed to be fun and fulfilling. For those who are arrogant/cranky, it is probably neither. Sure, they may have an impressive and valuable collection, but none of us can take this stuff with us, so if we're not enjoying it, what are we doing??

If you're enjoying it and having fun with it, let that be enough . Let those other folks be miserable if they want to.

Good decision.

The diversity of interests and opinions is one of the strengths of this board.

I'm sure the moderator could help if someone is out of line.

Well, a quasi welcome back, Stephen!

Occasionally, we all have to put on ear-muffs or grow thicker skin.


Glad you're staying.

I agree with Leon. If that happened to me I would post the members id and the message to let other members know who they are dealing with. I've had plenty of deals that didn't go down on both the buyer and seller side. I've never been insulted like that, or felt the need to insult someone else for their offer.
