Someone has said that I am a nefarious VW Split Screen Van trader :O)

Post by miles » Thu Dec 01, 2016 1:40 pm

Oh my goodness, someone has said that I am a nefarious Split Screen Bus trader.......

For further details -> http://ssvc.org.uk/phpbb/viewtopic.php? ... 6&start=15

I'm not sure where that have got this information..... Perhaps they have looked at chocksaway.com, and not realised that it is "not" a technical blog about software development :)

Maybe they have looked at all the for sale adverts, and seen the extortionate prices, scams, and keeping up with the Jones'

Maybe they seen me at shows making thousands of pounds selling faux nos parts

:)


For once i'm gobsmacked :)

That thread is a great example of good people wading in to stop some innocent buyer getting stung

And a resounding example of why allowing comments on for sale threads keep this forum a generally honest and supportive place

....."very lucrative business that the many of the regular daily forum members have sought to establish (for they are no doubt mostly traders in the scene of some form or another)....."

This was the comment that did it for me. It just shows how mis-informed some people are.

The SSVC forum is one of the most non-trader forums going. Like I'm a trader.....erm no, I work for the BBC.

"Miles, you are a trader, I've seen you at Slough." Did you see the prices. If I traded full time at these prices, I would be broke.

"I've seen you selling stuff on Facebook". Yes, the odd thing. Next question please.

Why don't you go to chocksaway.com, and see what I really do for a living. What I've been doing as a career for the last 23 years.....

The person who made this comment has under 10 posts. I helped to set this forum up, and have been a paid up member of this club for most of the last 17 years.

Even the Daily Fail does better investigative journalism than you ;) Get your facts correct, before you start generalising (or just a troll).

I'm going to leave it at that. There is nothing else to say.

It's like going to school, and behaving like a complete plank on your first day.

"stop swapping those football 79 cards this minute!!!!!!"

You are all traders, and are bringing the school playground into disrepute ;)

It wasn't you, as you have over 10000 posts :)

I know exactly how who it is ;) And their username is neither sherlock, or poirot ;0)

Please don't forget me when you come to sell your mud flaps. I would be interested in a set for the rear of H (this is a serious request).

I will of course copy 500 pairs, and sell them as OG, just with thinner rubber. Nobody will ever guess. I will give them a name, wot about Mavis.;)

I can can see the advert now. Barn find OB NOS mudflaps. Buy 499, and get a pair free.

I'm not knocking it. They were expensive though.

nefarious (which derives from the Latin noun nefas, meaning "crime") suggests flagrant breaching of time-honored laws and traditions of conduct.

That is about as far away from a description of Miles that you could possibly get!

Miles, you do sell quite a bit of stuff, but I've never figured out where you buy it from, as it always seems to be sold at less than the current market value! Not like the "cool kids" that I saw at Bugfreeze selling used repro stuff for more than new prices, and sheep were buying it.
