how BN runs that people trade fragrances (and consequently, addresses).
In 80+ transactions I've never had a problem, and as far as I know no one has ever reported a problem giving out an address... it's just not
like that. While there are weird things that happen on the internet, T.Rex has good feedback and hell, Chandler Burr met him for lunch last week! It would be one thing if T.Rex himself was an unknown person, but he's not. I understand being careful, but his comments were just rude. Rather than support him for being rude to T.Rex, it would have been best had Dudester been reassured that BN isn't like that.
Whoa whoa whoa, my comments just rude?? Just how so? What was so "Rude" as you assert by saying what I said, (these were my words):
I appreciate it, but i don't think sending out personal info would be the best move
^Well? Did I call Esquire Crazy, a lunatic, etc?! I am not offended by him asking to send me a sample but I merely stated "i don't think it would be the best move" which one could argue is a EUPHEMISM! How was I RUDE? You clearly ticked me off by even RAISING that word!
Second, I had no idea the primary purpose of BN was to exchange personal information here and swap colognes like crazy, I'm sorry but I have a life, just graduated college and I'm not saying that you guys don't have one, but that I am not overtly concerned with getting a cologne sample in my hands as if the world depended on it.
This post is in no way meant to downplay Esq or anyone else on these boards for that matter but solely a direct response to saying that my comments were just "rude" when, clearly, I did *not* even call Esq., apparent "rude" words, like crazy, psycho, or some other word which can easily be called "Rude." I am done here!
