    I too prefer getting things new,i love the fresh new smell of goods too.
    I'm sure the most satisfying one getting new nowadays must be a car or even a house. Seeing lot of cars these days are bought "used",the smell of a fresh brand new car from the factory/dealer is a very satisfying feeling.

    I don't mind buying used if it's from a good home. Although, I do like to test the waters in the BST forums - I'll be the one to bite the bullet and buy something (cheap) from a zero poster/new member just to see what they're like.

    I just had my PP dispute cleared up, they refunded me because the seller hasn't even bothered to put in a defence.

    well at least watercooled's heatware is messed up. that should stop him trading on other forums. Im not sure if hes banned form heatware also. but i heard he created another account after moonpig and some other members shit on his main heatware account.

    Watercooled is only one of a few people who scammed, ive seen a few over the years. TBH I only know about watercooled because you lot mentioned it.
    If its cheap enough im lenient but bigger stuff you have to really think will the item be as described and will they actually send it. There's not that many UK sellers on TPU so not much to consider most of the time.
    I accept the responsibilities of using a b/s/t forum.

    kyle2020 didn't send out money or items or something like that and everyone jumped to his defence because he was a regular member, im unsure what happened in the end. Could have just been like he told the people family issues but like i said i dont know how that turned out.

    Can you see any of it out of your window? You don't live in an area like that do you? You live in a quiet looking neighbourhood IIRC (Yea, I googlemapped your address :p a little while ago when we were talking about room temps)

    I think riots are the least of your worries if Scam is stalking you.
    No seriously thats some dangerous stuff, people have been looting too. Shame people capitalising on something like that.

    Bloody hell, I'd shut my windows mate, the smoke looks terrible. Unless they're pulling up footage from old riots to make it look worse, like they usually do :rolleyes:

    :roll: Hey, I stalk for your protection.

    Scam - Stalking Traders so you don't have to.

    We should all have catchphrases man.

    If it ain't Fire - it ain't Freedom!
