Guys,

Selling a bunch of oem parts...however, my last post on a pedestal was never approved by Trevor or moderators so I guess I won't be posting here but send me an IM if interested in what I have available.

Scott, its because of the donation NOTAM on the top of the page of the classified ads.

Any purchases made by PM will constitute a violation of our user terms and conditions.

Ok, sorry Trevor.  i have donated plenty to this website in the past so will pass.  Folks will have to find all this stuff elsewhwere where I have it posted.   Not that I mind donating but leaves somewhat of a bad taste.

Take care,
Scott

Scott,

This community website has existed for over 10 years.  If you calculate the monthly server costs and ROI for someone running a web community you will see you spend your time more in the hole than you do in the black. 

Some people have donated in the past.  I could count them on both hands. I received one $50.00 , one $50.00 and one $25.00 Donation from you on January 8th 2012, March 10th 2012 and February 7th 2011.  Which I will send you that money back right now.  If you have records or proof of another donation, please email it to me and I will return that money as well. That's well over 8 years ago, and yet still want to hold that over my head. Nobody will hold donations over my head for life.

When you take into account the thousands of dollars you have made from selling your parts here, asking for a 2% donation of your proceeds with a minimum charge of $5.00 is not a tall order and shouldn't leave a bad taste in your mouth.

I am sorry you feel this site leaves a bad taste in your mouth, and apologize you feel this community owes you in any way.

A donation is a donation and no, I have not made thousands of dollars off your site.   In fact, I have contributed tons and tons of content over the years to help make your site what it is.   If you want to charge people for listing ads then do so...become a for profit.  Otherwise, donations are just that...donations.

I'm done and will not rant any further.  It is what it is and I refuse to take back money that was given in support of the site of my own free will.   Nothing held over your head Trevor.    There are other places where people on this site that want to interact with me can and have.   

I wont post further and feel free to remove my membership and content if you like...no skin off my back.  My friends here will still be my friends regardless of your actions.

Out...
