Maybe,but the comments are relevant.I've made friends and successfully bought from the good people that inhabit this site from across the other side of the world (Australia) and I believe that the numbers of posts(i.e.establishing some credibility) required before selling goods is important.I've just raised this very issue with Mods on one of the two Aussie sites I frequent....a member who had made two posts in three and a half years of membership (both buying from the Classifieds) snapped up a rod..and no I wasn't interested in the rod.My point is of course that this person hadn't contributed to the Forum in any way but was simply using it as another place to get a bargain.
Cheers

OK, Guys. I just got the heads up the newtyer1 is back in action as bamboo1 over on the Classic site. I suppose he's hoping our attention span is as short as his. Help get the word out.

From a sellers perspective though, that's fine with me. So long as I know that I'm getting payment up front, I have nothing to worry about, and my product has been sold.

However, as far as buyers are concerned, there needs to be a level of trust established. Even when someone does have 200+ posts, or however many you see fit, you just never know what someone is capable of until it's too late. Perhaps a feedback system is a good way of helping potential buyers know the seller a bit better.

Upping the required limit for people to post seems a bit... dramatic to me. Just because there was one bad apple in the bunch, doesn't mean that we should punish everyone else who lives an honest life. My $.02.





Thanks Auntie Em! I've got a friend that frequents those classifieds, so I'll make sure he knows.

A new person has no problem BUYING. So yes, if the guy pays up and he is new he can do that.

What I am concerned about is SELLING. Allowing a new person immediate access to post an item FOR SALE puts us at risk from scammers. Placing a post limit requirement makes it more likely that potential scammers will move on to greener pastures that do not require a posting limit to sell.

I think like most things in life, it comes down to perspective. What policy is better for most of the current members of this bulletin board vs for new members? If you are an honest new member it means you can't immediately sell vs a greater level of protection for current members.

Another fact not to lost in the discussion is that this policy is not all negative for new members. New members also benefit from the same level of protection if they decide to buy just after joining.

I'm pretty new and posted a want to buy ad. Glad I was able to do that. I ended up completing two transactions. I don't have enough gear to need to worry about selling yet but is hate to see posting restrictions. As long as people use PayPal and common sense i.e. doing a normal PayPal transaction for goods and services and not "gifting" the money to avoid fees they have some recourse through PayPal for outright fraud. I see on other forums people suggest to "gift"the money all the time. That's a really bad idea unless you know the person well. And its sort of cheating PayPal out of there small fee.

The pentax camera forum has a very good feedback system. The admins should look at that. Buyers and sellers can get feedback for every transaction and everybody has access to look at it.

Go to the site, click 'search' and then in 'Search for Author' type in Bamboo1. You'll see all his posts. The evidence is there, start with his first post on the site, but in others he tells more and also posts pictures etc.. He identifies himself as Scott Martin and tells the story he has told in the past to get favors from people. I have never dealt with the man so have no first hand experience, but have heard enough to be very, very wary.

Don't know if it is proper to crosspost posting from other BB's. Admins please delete if this is out of line. Perhaps an exception can be made in this case. Here are Scoot Martin's (AKA Newtyer1, now Bamboo1) first few post on the Classic fly Rod Forum

He's at it again. Ironic posts since he reportedly used the PHW at Quantico to scam donations.

-----------

Hello fellow board members, My name is Scott and I live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I am originally from Massachusetts and Rhode Island and miss the ocean dearly. I am a Disabled Veteran of the Iraq War and proud owner of a new Bamboo. I was at a Project Healing Waters Event last week called the Mossy Creek Invitational and must say, it was the most fun since I have been home from Iraq. You see I suffer from PTSD and it has completely taken the fun out of all the things I use to like to do like fishing. I say I haven't fished in 11 years but, truthfully it has been atleast 30 years. Back then I used a Phillipson Master Glass rod which was recently sent back to me after 30 years or so. At the event last week, I was given a new Bamboo rod made by Fred Paddock. It is a 8' 5wt and I believe it was his first bamboo because it is marked #1. I am really excited about it. I am going to PA next month to join another PHW trip and thinking I am going to use this rod.

During the event last week, I caught my first fish in 30 years. They ranged from 14-1/2" to 22" and had a blast. It kept my mind focused on the cast and presentation. I have an extreme problem focusing and stay interested in anything for long periods at a time. I also suffer from agoraphobia(the fear of being around a lot of people)which didn't hinder me at all. I was very focused and the day just flew by. I look forward to sharing my time through posting, possibly make a couple fishing buddies and learning a thing or two about fly fishing.
Scott

Scott Martin


I have a Bamboo Spinning rod that I built a couple years ago. It's around 5' long 2pc. Give me an e-mail and we'll talk some more about price IF your interest.

Scott Martin


Thanks Munsey, I have already found that out during the event last week. Now I am anxious to get back out but, I can't afford my license since the VA can't get thier act together to pay me my proper disability. So, for now I just sit and think about the next trip with PHW. It's very frustrating that I can't afford something as small as a license but, the bills have to come first.

Scott

This fellow has 'real problems!' I wonder what drives that sort of mind. That was a statement, not a question.
