guess none of us know the story since everything is second hand...who'd you hear it from?

by the way best, you're on your own. It's swim or sink time

I heard it directly from him the same or next day after he finally picked up his car from Ricardo. I also saw the damage that Ricardo had done to the car and the unfinished work.

yes, the explanation was from derrick. the actual physical and mechanical damage done to his car I saw for myself. I have heard the story explained months apart to a few different people by him and the story doesn't change. I can read liars pretty damn well. Derrick isn't one.

go look in the bst and some of his threads, the im broke crap is bs. just today he was bragging about ordering hids for his new lights. also in the bst getting a sts and some other stuff. think he shoulda used the money for parts he owed someone first...
go ahead, search posts by him.
if i remember right, 8000 hid bulbs are well over a hundred arent they?

anywho, i'm stepping out of this one, have better things to do than waste time. I'll let the sharks have him

yeah, it's not really my place to be in here as well. But he did say he was going to handle it. I do believe he's handled all the other complaints as well. I know there was a lot of drama w/ some of the local guys in LA/OC. Some of that might be leaking into here, so people should just be aware and realize that.

Stop it how? ban members because of a he said she said? We, the rest of the community, are not liable nor responsible for devious actions by members. All you can do is inform the proper moderator of the situation, it will then be passed on to an admin if no direct violation of the rules is apparent. The same reason the thread wasn't locked. Moderators cannot just ban someone for the hell of it. I proved that once and it took a lot, eehmmmnnnn Ash, j/k

I myself am currently on hold on Klondikes build thread and project which sucks for everyone involved, but shit happens.

Which brings me to Derrick. If shit happened, then fix it. If you owe it give it back. We've had our tiff's in the past, but this isn't one of those. This is you being a man Derrick. A stand up guy that I think you more than likely are. So please, get er' done... and in the future, for EVERYONE, a deal is a deal. Screen shots that are dated in the drop boxes are admissable in court and you can easily be sued. Not just tarnishing your rep here, but everywhere, in "real" life. Sometimes doing business over the net, its easy to forget there is a real person attached to the other end of the email or PM.
And unfourtunetly, in real life you cannot just type "ipconfig /renew" when you wake up in the morning and start over. You are you, until your not you anymore.

I wasn't aware there was a poll posted??? And out of curiousity, have you taken the time to read every page in these threads that are being posted about him. I'm not defending anyone, this makes no difference to me either way. But fact of the matter is there are always two sides to the coin. And before you go sprouting off comments like that you BETTER have your act together and know what your talking about...

Lets see, from a non partial based decision platform, when we compare you:

You just suggested we ban a member with almost 6000 more posts than you, and they have been a member two years longer with 5x your rep points

Derrick, I'm going to give you until the end of the month to get everything squared with all the members. If not I'm going to suspend your account. I really hate to do this as you've been a really good member up until these issues, however this is the final straw and you get no more chances. Until then all your B-S-T privileges including PM's will be revoked.
