If there is a situation where you feel that a transaction has gone poorly as a result of deliberate malice or deception, by all means bring it to our attention.

What is even better is how much flak he got on the local forums. He "bought" that head from local and then tried to resell it to the locals before he even had it in his hands for a massive mark-up. Then when the seller started to back out he threw a fit and everyone found out it was a local head and from one of our members, and he was trying to pull a fast one on us.

Or when he listed the same 600ish cc injectors on the local forum and he got bashed for not posting that he knew they wouldn't fit a miata.

Sure enough, he tried sneaking back in under the name headwayperformance.

The one-month ban is now a permaban.

No, you paid $5 for a hand-job. And then you made all kinds of weird demands involving yard gnomes, cooking oil, and a life-sized cardboard likeness of Margaret Thatcher.

What about banning for listing Miata stuff in the non-miata stuff section?
