I suggest everyone reread the article as most of these posts have nothing to do with the particular events in question. I read the quoted text from the original post and every other post since. Am I missing something here? I'm not sure how my questions seem out of place. You said they disobeyed ord...

which means if you get a real dick cop, he can take just about any folder you can imagine. with enough practice you can "spydie drop" just about anything, even a SAK. We have the same stupid laws where I live as well.

I'm only a Canadian, so I may not know much :rolleyes: , but what exactly are these "orders" that were disobeyed. Does anyone know for a fact exactly what these men were ordered to do/not do? I understand they were sent to capture someone, presumably to be brought back alive, but were they ordered t...

I ordered two knives from them without a hitch, I guess I got lucky :confused: . This was before I'd heard a few horror stories from them. I won't be testing my luck with them again.

I ordered from the SFO the other day and I just checked on my tracking number. Hope this copy/paste from the USPS tracking page puts your mind at ease : Your item cleared customs in CANADA at 8:30 PM on April 12, 2009. Information, if available, is updated every evening. Please check again later. :D...

Moose !!

Just had to share my new buddy with you guys. I lost my best friend Harley to cancer on the 31 of march this year. The house has been feeling a little emptier than usual. Even with Odin (boston terrier) and Milo (kitty) in the house, it just wasn't the same. Odin is my girlfriend's dog and I'm aller...

I've had some good sized chips in my mini-manix, but it was a factory second. all my other s30v spydies are fine. perhaps the heat treat or something else that could result in a higher chance of chipping was the reason it was a 2nd, I never could find a visible defect.

I had no idea that ebay enforces what prices you are allowed to charge for shipping. I would never have known. So if I read this right, ebay puts a ceiling on what you can charge for shipping? I suppose they expect sellers to adjust their selling prices accordingly, which in turn gives them a larger...

As an Aussie I prefer Paypal above all else to be honest. I can do, of course, a bank tranfer BUT then both the Transferee and the Recipient get charged fees for the privelege of the Bank(s) keeping and using your money for 3-4 days! :rolleyes: NOT only do they charge you for the privelege of using...

not the responses I was expecting. I can understand a private seller asking for the fees, but would've have thought at least one of you would've thought a retailer should suck it up and eat the fees. So nobody thinks a seller should work the PP% into their asking price, that takes care of question 1...

thoughts on PP fees

What do you guys think about paypal fees being added by a seller? Who do you think paypal is more beneficial to, the seller, or the buyer? I think offering paypal as a payment method is beneficial to both. It gives the buyer a sense of protection and is faster than waiting for a MO, and definitely b...

my girlfriend gave me the okay to post her tats as well. The moon and cross are about 8yrs old now. The tribal type ones were drawn by one of her friends, and are a little more recent. The koi (my personal fav.) was done at a shop here in Ottawa last winter. http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg130/...
