Word you couldn't utter about the one who could not be named on the "other forum"....

    Like the distinguished list of posters here, I was banned on the "other forum," for using the heretical blasphemous word "inventory." In a nutshell,
    I posted that I lacked patience and that waiting on my new Ed Brown from the "one who could not be named," (at least by me) was maddening. This
    was before the wait times were pushed back. Now that, you know who," has Ed Brown inventory, if you lack patience, why wait? This isn't a sales
    pitch. It is reality.

    Anyway, everyone is by now familiar with the bias toward one seller on the 1911 forum. It is nice to see PastorDW reading the other side of the story. The other seller complained to me a long time ago about, you know who's then threat to accumulate inventory. He understood, unlike his minions,
    that it would cripple his sales once someone combined his prices with availability. It was obvious to him and he waged what seems to me to be an unfair campaign against free enterprise. When low prices worked in his favor, when he was able to mine the 1911 forum and pm every newbie on the Ed Brown forum, free enterprise was good because it was profitable. When he suddenly had competition, he didn't want to give up his last advantage, the baited field, if you will, of the 1911 forum. Otherwise, he couldn't compete. He has no advertising, no store front, and no inventory. His market seems to come entirely from the Ed Brown portion of the 1911 forum. He schemed more than Goldman Sachs in the mortgage debacle against his competition and I told him when he called me that I thought it was restraint of trade. I posted that on the forum and was summarily banned again under yet, another name. Truthfully, I wasn't that enamored of the 1911 forum but I you hate to see a friend screwed; so you fight the good fight. I wasn't making money being sneaky. The other seller was.

    For instance, he knew me under another name and sent me a couple of private messages trying to sell me an Ed Brown. But, when I emailed him back, offering to sell him one, I was banned for being a troll. Then, I was banned, under another name, for, no reason given, although it could only have been because I used the word, "inventory." Why would the owner of the site care about the word inventory?

    The word could only hurt one poster. It is the offer what for most buyers will be the better mouse trap and the other seller did his damnedest behind the scenes to eliminate his competition by unfair means. The banned posters here are the proof of that.

    Thanks for letting me get this off my chest. Inventory, inventory, and more inventory. For whom the bell tolls? Jerry, it tolls for thee.

    Before it is over, the nasty word inventory will probably suck me into another Ed Brown. At the moment, I just can't decide which model. However,
    inventory helped me get 2 LB's, (more about them when I have time) that are tremendous values and both have excellent triggers.

    Thanks for letting me get that off my chest

    All that crying and getting people banned and threads erased will bite him in the ass. He can get cry and call foul all he wants but that is just one forum out of many. The members that were banned are not just going away quietly as shown in this forum. Oh well.

    By the way :welcometo: SP

    Indeed, I do feel welcome. It is a nice feeling not to be banned for what seems obvious and common sense about inventory.
