What's happening is not an asset to the hobby - which is what "old" Volvos are now.

Granted, some wheels are timeless regardless of how ugly they are.

I was under the impression they already made him donate, but I could be wrong.

Either way, he is more of a parasite than an asset to forums.

He promised to donate once we got you class clowns to stop harassing him. That didn't happen despite continued bans, so he doesn't feel the need to donate.

If you don't want to see his posts, add him to your ignore list, that's exactly what it's there for. If you don't want to do that, just don't read his threads, nobody is forcing you to do so.

I'll make monthly contributions if you make him consolidate his threads into one, like Philski and others who have multiple threads, or ban him from forsale.


It's even a sticky!

He's a non contributing spambot.

Is it really just about ignoring someone when they are hogging the top of the thread lists, and not following the forum rules?
Seems like he is taking advantage of forums.
I'm guessing he is, or has been attempting to, do this on every auto related forum on the web.

He really seems more like a spammer than a contributor to the community.

This is the problem.
If someone is hogging the top of the threads, relentlessly and with items that are of little to no interest to the forum users, it diminishes the usefulness of the forum, and turns it into someone's private ad machine.

The only things that go away if you ignore them are your teeth and your girlfriend.

Fortunately, I still have my teeth...

Agreed.

I have him on my ignore list, but it's still annoying AF to see his threads bumped constantly. With no shipping available and unrealistic trade requests, those threads are going to rot here forever. Pretty soon his "ttt" posts will outnumber Redwood Chair's posts and he'll be the top contributor!

Do something, guys.

All his posts seem to be bumping his own multiple forsale and market threads or posting craigslist links.

Would anyone contribute to a GoFundMe to buy his s70 slicktop full of his wheels and crush it? I could cover my own travel or half for someone else and up to 10% of the car.

Anyone have any idea how many cars someone living in Longisland NY can sell without having a dealers license?

He currently has 5-6 cars for sale just on this forum, and that doesn't include cars he has managed to find someone to buy.

Right, it wouldn't make sense that he would title and register all those cars since he's just flipping them.
Is that legal in Longisland NY?
