Have you ever actually submitted books to CBCS for grading? Last I knew you sub exclusively CGC slabs with very rare exception.

Just curious, as to your use of the term “support”.

Yeah I use to contribute a lot more but not anymore... Quote:

I support CBCS more now than I did a couple of months ago. I think what they've done are substantial steps in the right direction, both here and in the whole. And, I think that, as someone who regularly interacts with the graded comics community at multiple conventions and elsewhere throughout the year, that the opinion of CBCS HAS improved.

I had issues with how the boards were run.

You know what I didn't do?

Endlessly complain about it on their boards.

You know what I DID do?

Talk to the appropriate parties about it, in the appropriate ways.

There are ways to handle these things, and there are ways not to.



Hey that's great you keep supporting them. I just can't anymore and I'm not the only one that feels this way. All I did was state some facts and corrected someone's misbeliefs about mods. But hell what do I know right?

Actually, I am still a moderator. I think you misunderstood that entire situation, but I will allow you use it in any way you see fit.

And I have expressed my feelings about having discussions with you particularly. I do not want to have them.

Thanks!


No misunderstanding involved. I don't think you understand that this statement:

...is completely contradicted by the fact that the minute you got the power to do so, you banned people. You did the exact thing you're complaining about others doing.

And your excuse is "oh, well, YOU don't count, because I don't LIKE you."

The disconnect isn't plain to you, is it?

Nah, you never have, I have been here from the beginning; selling books at inflated prices has always been your purpose here.

You read any comics today?

If you don't support CBCS anymore, then why post on their board?

That's like coming to my house and telling me, over and over again, "I don't like you, and neither do others."

That may be so. Your reasons may be valid. But at some point, my patience is going to run out, and I'm going to ask you to leave.

I post here, so I deem the board somewhat civil. If I'm not posting here, I'm either really busy or bored with the discussion to the point that I have nothing to say. Flame wars bore me. What I do like about posting here is that the cliques are few. Nothing is more tedious than to post a "new" opinion or perspective and have 20 people try to shut it down with memes or cloned responses that add nothing insightful or new. I also prefer information sharing rather than masturbatory high 5's among a group of buddies online. Yeah. I made that word up.

You have what is known in the legal profession as "mala fides", and your questions are not sincere, but rather bait.

So, I think the readers will understand if I decline to engage you.

No one is putting you down, only exposing the truth. If you find the truth to be insulting, maybe you should reconsider your positions.

It has been fixed, thanks for the correction.

I hope I can be forgiven, since it was just a repeat answer to an insincere line of questioning.

@DocBrown I don't come here for the company. Is that solely why people come here to communicate? I like some of the members here,the information posted, and I also own cbcs slabs. Do I really have to legitimize my reason for being here now?

Yep.



And for those not in the know, in the interest of not pairing Watson’s rep with his, “buddy” is sarcasm.

Not at all, and no one said anything to the contrary.

Think it through logically: you understand that there's a difference between regularly pointing out that you don't like your host or what they do...and simply interacting with others at the party about non-host related issues?

I know this is disappointing, but I'm serious. Crap! The word is real isn't it! With my luck I've got some repressed memories and already knew the word existed.

We are a dying breed, man. The most amazing stories in the world have happened and are still happening, in comic books. Yet 99% of people are completely unaware of it. I’d guess 50% of people on even this forum dont read anymore.

My local newsstand died last week as well. I was told, nonchalantly as if it was no big deal, when asking where all the DC books were moved to, “sorry we dont sell those here anymore”.

Blagh.

You can look back at past threads if you so choose. And no sorry been at work all day and have a family to take care can't just drink beers and read comics all day. Although I'm sure you would have a recommendation for a good read? And if you decide that your not interested in the books I post so be it. To each their own.

Of course even the simplest of people could distinguish the difference.

Are you talking about your fantasy friends or are you insinuating all I do is drink beer and read comics all day? Willing to bet my work ethic dwarfs yours as does my IQ. I think you are stupid and I will leave it at that. Bring it via PM if want to continue this. No hard feelings on my end, snicker.
