jesus ****ing christ... this has gone on way too long...
prowler, i think you are missing a key point of weasels... he has said he is not defending ibans actions, he did not agree with what he did wrong.
and make a note from this reply, i am not defending him either. i have said it before, yes it would have been simple for him to communicate, yes, he should have sent them out immediatly, yadda yadda yadda.
but i agree that karleon hould have used all his resources before trying to tarnish someones name... he should have communicated through all available channels that he had (and admittedly so) before bringing the discrepency to the public and waiving dirty laundry for all to look at and judge. yes, i know wal mart cant hold guns that you put on layaway. but how would it look if you went to wal mart, yelled at all of the floor staff to give you the guns, yet never talked to a mangaer and then went immediatly to call the local news and BBB, before you even tried to fully resolve the issue.
again, im not saying iban was right, ive already stated my opinion on that in this thread at an earlier point, so please dont misconstrue this post as saying so. my only point is that everyone on here is completely willing to overlook some of the facts because they have prejudged the issue.
how would you like it if you had a deal with someone on a forum that you rarely check on, yet you had given the person your email address, the list of forums that you frequent, and any other methods of communication that you find acceptable. and then when they try to contact you through the medium that you use less frequently and you dont see it, they bring it public that you have dissapeared and are attemtping to scam? you probably wouldnt see that as fair, seeing as how you gave them other options to contact you that you had told them were better means of communication.
again, not defending iban, but try to look at all the info before making decisions.
