@Bowspearer... look, i'm pretty sure you are just angry, and arguing to argue, but when it comes down to brass tax, I don't care. If you want to throw a hissy fit about it, rock on, fight the good fight. I'll be enjoying my toys.

The more you talk the more you prove its your problem, not everyone else's. I don't speak for everyone, and clearly neither do you, so lets agree to disagree, because neither of us are going to sway from our perspective.

Have a good one bro, try to relax and enjoy the rest of the day, its really nice and sunny here, maybe it is wherever you are as well.

I'm well aware of the site and I've use it quite often. The point is that I shouldn't have to go through inspecting box art for the difference between a colon and a comma on the age recommendation disclaimer because the boxart on KOs is trying to replicate the real thing.

If something is worth that much, then absolutely not. Here's the thing about taking a mature approach to collecting. If you don't have the money to be able to afford something, you either go without, save up for it, or wait. There are some pieces I'd love to own but don't. One day I'll hopefully own them, but if I don't then so be it. That's the nature of collecting.

TransformersEmporium wrote: spreading lies about peoples websites and making false accusations,


And yet what exactly did I say about your site- that you do not expressly state that your G1 KOs are KOs and that doing so is misleading- something which Discharge was actually the first to raise with you and accused you of being negligent over - and the fact that by selling KOs you are acting illeegally. Both of these statements are entirely factual.

Actually it's more a case of having little tolerance for relativism and double ignorance (see Plato's "crimes of double ignorance") in a situation which doesn't just hurt HasTak, but us as fans. With 3rd arty stuff, HasTak are going to be less likely to produce certain figures, while KOs just introduce scamers into the mix which screw everyone over with how deceptive the boxart mimicry is. The ethics here are clear cut when people actually look at the elephant in the room, but people keep trying to pretend that the situation is everything but what it is.

And yet I'm not the only one on this forum who has a problem with KOs, and I've encountered several others on other forums who equally have a problem with them in terms of being scam-fodder and potential reasons why we don't get encores of certain figures. You can claim it's just me all you like, and try to convince yourself it's not the way it is. Yet as the old saying goes, the truth eventually catches up with us.

Hey hey hey

If this thread becomes a garbage dump like the last one, I am going to skip the warnings and move straight to account review at an admin level for three month suspensions from the site.

Try me.

Anyone hiding behind the guise of "debate" while purposely antagonizing people is going to suffer the same consequences.

Indeed, there is no room for this childish Horse Manure in a thread meant for Cow Pies. ;)

Would much prefer to focus on how awesome Dairycon is and why we're gonna have so much fun in April. :)
