    Default PFB - Did your eBay thread about shipping get deleted

    Where is it? Why would it be deleted?

    Good question, why did a whole thread vanish? Maybe because I posted the buyers name ?

    I would venture to say that we were verging on bad taste and Polk pulled it because it didn't look good. I can't blame them. That stuff might be OK for an NFL locker room, but for a public forum?

    What did not look good? The thread was a legit topic and informative to other people who may encounter a bum label being printed through ebay shipping

    I saw the thread title, but the tthread was gone before I read it. Send Ken Swauger a nice PM asking why it was removed.

    Idk, but that would be a good reason. When I read it, I couldn't believe you posted his name.... seriously, where's your common sense, dude?
    Yeah, stupid question. I'm sure that the moderator(s?) can only take so much nonsense, and it was easier to wipe out the whole thread.

    Nap, there was a big misunderstanding and Ken and I have discussed it. The comment was NOT directed towards Ken, it was directed at PFB.

    The reason the thread was deleted was because of some of the mean spirited responses some people posted. There's a fine line between good natured ribbing and being cruel. Sure some of PFB's posts stretch the limits of credibility but that doesn't deserve the level of acrimony directed at him. Try and inject some real humor into a thread rather than the sophomoric taunts that only make this forum look juvenile and uninviting.

    We need to get the guys out of here who are constantly stirring the pot. I can name the top 5 idiots who make this forum "juvenile and uninviting." We all know who these guys are. Who gives a damn how much they contribute when they feel like being helpful.

    Some pruning would be the best thing that ever happened to CP.
