    ----------

    P.S. if u haven't heard from me since you gave a for sure $ and date I haven't made any commitment


    So, rag on the guy who's trying to save EVERYONE some money, on his OWN time, not taking ANY kickback for it, and don't take ANY responsibility or ownership of it yourself. That'll get things done real fast. LOL This is just a small example of what's wrong with this world. Nobody gives a shit about a "greater good" anymore. It's all about #1.

    I'm not the organizer. Just someone who said I was interested (and actually meant it), and would like to see this thing take off. If I were the organizer, people with this type of attitude would have me saying "**** it" in no time. Why should I bust my balls to save some dick like that any money...


    fre1102 - How many have you got re-confirmed at this point? Also, apologies if my starting this thread complicates things further. I just thought that the other one wasn't titled all that clearly that it was a group-buy, and it was also in the section of the forum that gets the least attention. So I thought this might help out a bit. Seems as though it's attracted a couple confirmations anyway...

    Give me a break. The last I heard it wasn't going to happen and quite frankly I just forgot about it. Now what's the next thing I need to do to get these?

    I'm raging on the idiot who started the post calling people out for being "in" and not living up to their "commitment". I was interested months ago. I never heard anything about it and assumed it fell through. I'm no longer interested. Had someone made another post titled "clear fog group buy" then compiled a list of people who were ready to pull the trigger in the next couple weeks you'd see there aren't 15 people. you coulda sent 14PM's. There never were 15 people ready to buy. As for what's wrong with this world? It's cry babies like you IMO. Pony up the extra $50 to buy your stupid lights and stop crying about it.

    You know why I didn't respond earlier? Because I never actually talked to anyone about a group buy and didn't think I was on "the list". All I'm saying is, there's a right way that works and a wrong way that doesn't when organizing a group buy. This would be the wrong way.
    FoD and FoD like this.

    Head over to the original thread (linked above) to get up to speed.

    I'm the "idiot" that started this thread, but I'm not the GB organizer... Just trying to help. And your "rage" really doesn't mean fack all to me. If you wanna consider this a call-out - be my guest. I would say your defensiveness is basically an admission to deserving to be called out. Just my opinion though. The same opinion that says the name calling is just your typical pot calling the kettle scenario. No skin off my back.

    Here woulda been a good idea ... How about taking a moment to go back to where you SAID YOU WERE IN and maybe posting a quick "Hey, if this is still being worked on, sorry fellas, but I've found something else", or something to that effect? Seems a little more reasonable to me than just "assuming" that it's fallen through (which would have been tough to do had you kept an eye on the thread where updates were provided). I don't know, maybe expecting a little common courtesy is just too much to ask. I suppose I'll head to my corner and cry about that too ...

    Yeah maybe I would have said somthing, but I forgot about it. A little communication would have fixed that. Someone sending a message asking if I'd be able to buy within the next month and saying how many people we had. I'm clearly in the majority here or you wouldn't have had a reason to make this thread.

    Wes, GBs are like leading a dog to water. You can do it, but you can't make 'em drink. GBs are notoriously difficult to pull off. It's like carrying an arm-load of jello.





    Oh, btw, I'm not in.

    I believe you'll want to send a PM or email to fre1102, if you haven't already done so.

    In the event anyone's watching this thread, we only need 3 more people to get the 15 required for the GB.
