Im not running any for the bodies benefit but then neither is he !!!
Well, technically he is. What Midnitehound is doing means that we at least end up with some nice tins at the end. What you are doing is kicking someone who is trying to help the group. For all you know he may be using a different supplier, made an error in calculations, or genuinely not understood the rules.

You however have just made accusatory comments against him, without giving him a decent chance to respond. You have not acted in a reasonable manor.

Midnighthound - If after the treatment that Bare Thrills has subjected you to, you decide that you no longer want to continue this group buy, I will happily take over the running of it for you.

Thanks

I always worry when i see the word Technically lol

I am aware of the gravity of my accusations. Ive seen it before in his group buys and raised issues gently to no avail.

Like I say, if im wrong i'll gladly take the heat and walk away but the numbers speak for themselves

Most people shy away from "technically", but it's the bit that hangs everyone in the end.

Lets see what midnitehound has to say.

If one member has a word with another member, fairplay.....

I dont think I'd be sticking my 'nib in' on either side, until that member had a chance to respond.....

Good gracious Paul, I know you may be feeling embarrassed or put out because your group buy carabiner supplier turned out to be fraudulent but it doesn't mean you should just launch into other people doing GBs, a PM pointing out a mess up would be sufficient.

I was asked to source a handful of baccy tins by someone awhile ago, wasn't overly enthusiastic as I'm not a smoker :rolleyes:, and at 4am with little sleep and a thumping head and a 7am start and feeling a little guilty I hadn't got on with it I got my scribbled figures for a small Ebay order and larger order all messed up. It should be £2.50 and £3.00 which would have become evident when I took another look at it tonight. Good gracious £84 is almost my normal hourly rate, woohoo time to party, Bermuda here I come, LOL! I did originally say to him they would probably come in at about £1 each for 10.

I suspected that the self sealing tins would be about as popular as a fart in a spacesuit but I wanted to get some spares anyway for a treasure hunt for the kids at the Moot. Heaven knows how much all the cuddly toys cost me last year at the Moot for the Safari and they were auctioned off at the end which raised a substantial chunk for Drew's charity because of the awesome kindness of the attendees. I remember a certain forum member paying a fortune for one and then just handing it away to a little girl, don't tell anyone I told you though. What a big softy.

I suspected that numbers would be low and I'd just have to buy a small number anyways which is what I would have preferred but I was encouraged by shiny self sealing tins that could be fun. These multiples were actually listed on Ebay but the listings have not yet been renewed. Oh and I guess you didn't factor in the very high delivery cost that is levied on the likely small order!

Kind of wished I hadn't bothered now, really couldn't get enthusiastic about a Baccy tin GB.

Wow, been writing this for awhile and just seen the thread conversation.

Wow, I wish I'd been getting my £84 hour rate when I was running round poles in 100m goes to measure out 1mm Dyneema cord! At least it kept me warm and I almost retired to the South of France off that one!

You having some Glowrings then or do they cost too many squid hey shelfish? ;) Oh and rather than casting aspersions perhaps you should be cautious about not catching fraudulent suppliers in your own net!

Paul PMed me and among other things, not to be mentioned, said he has asked for his account to be closed. That can't be to do with just Baccy tins, must be more to it, so can some friends of his please put an arm around him and tell him that he is needed here at BCUK, oh and that he should buy some Glowrings so I can afford my trip to the Bahamas! ;)

Mod: Oh and thanks for the offer to heavily edit but may as well leave it in the public domain. I think people can judge for themselves whether they are getting ripped off to fund my lavish lifestyle or getting good deals they can't get elsewhere. :)
