Relax there Mr. Scam Artist!
When buying and selling on ASC, I treat it with the same honor as I do airsoft, when on the field.
Interactions on the forum and the faceless void called the internet still reflect how honorable you are in the real world. It's easy to fuck someone or dick them around on the net, but I truely beleive these same people would do it in the real world in a face to face deal if the very real threat of a bitch slap wasn't there.
I bought an airbrush off of EX once, by the time I had a chance to pick it up, things were a little tight, did I bail? No. Why? Because I gave my word, my bond. I feel alot of younger guys will not understand what I just said, because they have not been taught about "the handshake". I was taught when you shake on, or verbaly (now today digitally) agree to something, your character, your dignity, and your honor are now linked to "the deal" and you are commited to seeing that deal through at all reasonable costs to maintain face.
Oh....and I know how you feel EX.
