So if Hitler was a good board member then that’s all that matters? How could you even try to make argument for a nazi on the board. It’s not like he doesn’t like dogs or hates vegetables. He believes in the views and actions of the Nazi party. Even comparing it to republicans or democrat is ridiculous.

Given the direction this thread has taken, I feel I have to say up front that the following comments are made tongue in cheek. Cynical and self deprecating humor is something I embrace and enjoy.

Perhaps he counts his age the same way some Domincan baseball players do when trying to land a professional contract. "Hey, that kid in the Little League World Series has a beard..."

How about a list of eBay buyers who have 100% feedback and never renege on payment?
Wait, perhaps that may be too short a thread.

I think it's awful and hateful when people attach stereotypes to a group of individuals...

We (meaning Leon) probably should state that 'on the clubhouse door' along with providing that as part of the information you are provided when asking to join. Anyone caught engaging in fraudulent activities on the board will be banned for life.

Since it's a lifetime ban, membership reinstatement can be considered after one's demise though.

Such as Neo-Natzi's, skinheads, KKK etc...?

Good reason to avoid opinions on the board, thereby requiring your name be out there and subject to background checks 😉

I agree 100%; bad trader is a matter of who's opinion you listen too; but out right theft, fraud, blatant deceit, known to sell counterfeits, etc are of primary importance to every member of this board. I would think. As a community I would hope it is in everyone's best interest to protect the member's of the community. Just my 3 cents.

Btw this person outed himself 9 years ago. Nobody did a background check. One can either choose to believe his story about hanging out on a Nazi website or choose not to believe it.

Can we get a list of those extremist organizations? So that we can be on the look out for them, of course.

Most of us probably can agree on some subset of the list, but I bet everyone on the board has a different list. Slippery slope if you ask me.

And I do thank you for the job your doing Leon, this is generally a very well behaved group and I enjoy being a member.
