Shortmag and Dholepuncher are tops on my list. Shortmag gave me a Zeiss lens cover and neck strap just for the asking, and dholepuncher made me a great deal on a pair of Leica's and delivered them super quick..
Add Rick Bin to that, I've bought lots of stocks from him... Charlie

Gee, I have only been a member here for about a year, and I can't even begin to remember all the members I have bought stuff from. But one certainly stands out. FLINCH went out of his way to ensure that I was satisfied with a deal. I appreciate that.
I have also sold things to: (In no paticular order)
and probably several others that I can't think of. Most of the above I shipped mdse to on trust. All of them paid me promptly. I couldn't think of a better bunch to deal with... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" /> the9.3Guy

Those are the ones I rememebr that I have bought or sold something with. The guy who just bought my 280 Ack was great, but I don't know his handle. Also, there are a lot here I haven't done business with that I would highly recommend and not hesitate to buy/sell with.
I know I'll forget a couple but the guys who stand out in deals I've made with guys from this board-
I've also made some offers and done some negotiating with some other guys and while the deals probably weren't made for one reason or another (probably because I'm a cheapskate), no hard feelings were made and hopefully we'll work a deal again in the future.
Though I haven't done a business transaction with all of them, these are good folk:

also, believe it or not...BigStick. He once offered me a veiled tip about something, with the words "take that as a nudge in the right direction.." <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> He's like EF Hutton.
I think once bearstalker semi-offered to plow my driveway with his 4-wheeler while I was out of town. I'll buy him a cup someday too.
I strongly believe that overall, the good guys outnumber the butt-heads by a very wide margin. So, is there a problem with having a 'bad guy' or feedback list? Possible slander-type repercussions? If it could be proven that an individual had not delivered goods as promised, why not add that person to a list. I don't see it as any worse than 'feedback' like ebay uses, and it would be a lot easier to keep track of scam artists that way than looking through the good guy list to see if they're there - especially if one of the good guys you were considering doing biz with hadn't made it to the list yet.
