He only has like 224 posts...maybe he doesn't really "get" the whole idea of "Hisstank patience" yet. We all have busy-assed lives.
I have not been burned yet, though I look at feed back threads to know who I am dealing with so that I won't.
All his stuff will probably end up showing up on one day.
Sometimes I feel more comfortable trading thru here than i do ordering from a retail website.

I have not done any trades yet, mostly because I don't really have anything I want to get rid of. My overall impression of the guys trading on this site is positive. It seems like every day I see a ton of positive feedback from trades conducted by tankers. I think he just needs to be patient. I do a lot of ebaying, both buying and selling and sometimes in takes a few weeks to get stuff. I would imagine most traders are using the cheapest shipping method possible, which also means the slowest. Probably very few things goind Priority. Parcel Post at the post office can be very slow. It can take a few weeks to go through the process, depending on how busy the postal hubs are. I am sure there are some aholes on here who look for the opportunity to rip others off, but by and large I think most of the guys/gals on here are honest.

I've completed over 90 transaction around here, and only ever had 3 go bad, and 2 of those were because the other guys backed out, not because they intentionally ripped me off, that's only happened once. Barbeque68, you and I even got off on the wrong foot, but made up. Essentially I've had a 97% positive experience trading on the 'Tank, which is pretty darn good.
MLos1 has a point too... we all lead busy lives, give it a week or two more before you call it quits. I'm guessing most of your items show by then!

that is the kind of thing that happens with mis communication. you should always ask when and how someone is sending your item. and you shouldnt have 15 trades going on at the same time.
trades just dont work simply. you have to make your own rules inable to look out for your self.
i have had a few things go wrong from time to time,and in the end it was always my fault.
it was my fault for letting some a-holes want to change the trade up after i sent out, it was my fault for sending out first with the intention the fellow trader was sending out at the same time i was.
hiss tank isnt a business. it is a forum to unite people in the same interest.
high expectations will let you down when you jump the gun. focus on one thing at a time instead of 15 things at a time

Don't give up man. I have traded, sold, and bought countless times from fellow tankers and ive yet to get ripped off. Yeah sometimes it takes some time for items to arrived but as long as there communication between both parties things should work out.

Right. I've received quite a few concerned PMs in regards to your trades, BBQ. Have you come through on your end?
The best way to address your issue is to do the following:
Provide User Name & Tracking number of items sent to people here. ie -
C.I.A.D. - Tracking #1234 5678 90AB Sent 02/21
I doubt people are going on a witch hunt. There's always 3 sides to every story, with one of them being the truth.
So again, if you completed your end of the deals you entered, provide proof.
Also, please check your PMs.

I don't care what site or organization you are in, there are always going to be a few bad eggs. The bottom line is this site is GREAT. I can't say enough about HISSTANK!
