It's a sad day when the forum needs to create an

 

"Anti-Kudos" thread

 

......oh wait, this is the anti-kudos thread. :makepoint

 

And it sounds like deservingly so. frown.gif

Don't get me wrong blutobc,

 

I can't say for sure if anyone got ripped off, or even delayed. However, to even have this thread questioning it, is enough for me.

no problem, I was actually agreeing with you.

 

You had a rough start on the boards....but it seems that everything is hunky dory now with most members...imho because you learned and adjusted to what people want or expected from a comic seller.

 

LH doesn't seem to be learning any lessons. But some buyers are!!!!!!!

Yes, I didn't start off to well. But, I took my lumps, swallowed some pride and just starting acting like a man and business man. And now I have all this.... a 6 pack of pepsi and $2. smile.gif

Plus,... I leave you alone now. acclaim.gif

 

 

Seriously, I agree with you and MK 100%, Russ. Nothing personal against LH because I don't know him personally, but he should not be allowed to use the boards as he does. I remember that long long wait some people had for their Overstreets a couple of years ago too. Ridiculous.

that was a weird one, as I got my OS from him three-four days after it was released. Other people waited 'til infinity.

I think you only have 30 days, and 45 for a deferred complaint. Whatever that is.

Showing the other side, I did get my TPB from this list a couple of weeks after I ordered them. It could be that since I live about 5 minutes from his mailing address, he didn't want to have me stalking him. The original idea was that i was going to pick them up the day after I ordered them, but he never replied to my pm's after I paypaled him the dollars.

 

I didn't know about his earlier stunts when I ordered. Did a search about a week later when someone posted about problems with him. Sent him a nasty PM 2 weeks after ordering & then the books show up that afternoon.

 

Good luck to everyone getting your stuff.

Here we go again.....

 

So let me get this straight. After the HUGE imbroglio back in 2004-5, Lighthouse came back and was given a 2nd chance by most of the board.

 

And now he has pissed it away by doing the EXACT same thing he did last time (not shipping people their TPBs)... plus perhaps some other misdealings that Foolkiller brought up.

I think we're done here.

Exactly. I can't imagine how many people got torched on the whole "TPBKing" fiasco... and for how much money?!?

AFAIK everyone who ordered trades from TPBKing has been taken care of (goods or refund) except for the ones I noted earlier.

 

What Rocketeer and FK are talking about is the two people who helped LH fund the inventory for TPBKing. Part of that is still outstanding. BTW Rocket, only one person is still owed money on that (and it is a significant amount). The other person was repaid last year.

I am still holding back on commenting publicly about the situation simply from the standpoint that I say a silent prayer every night hoping that TJ (Lighthouse) will somehow call me (after I've left him multiple messages) and not give me some ridiculous excuse about where he's been, for about the third or fourth time so I can spare people the details of what exactly went on here. Everyone knows about the trades etc., unfilled orders etc., but not having an internet connection doesn't excuse you from shipping any orders... and we're not talking about someone who forgets to ship an item or two (I've done this) or is late (done this too) in shipping, we're talking about it on a massive scale, advertised on these boards, multiple times.

 

But, eventually, I will lay out in detail the chronology of what took place, how much is owed and what we have done to try to resolve the situation that has taken almost TWO YEARS to fully resolve, and is still unresolved.

 

My client (a very well liked and respected board member) is at his wit's end. So am I. We were fine until the recent disapperance.

That's what I was alluding to... I just wasn't sure how many people had been squared away, as it were. Judging by FK's post just now, it's everyone but one. confused-smiley-013.gif
