Less than a week after he got my watch, he "went on a roll" and posted a half dozen brand new watches in "Look what I got" over the next few months.

Either he hit the lotto or there were more suckers than me falling for his BS.



Karma, Do unto others, Blah...Blah...Blah! You will get yours Big Cheese and asswipes like that S.O.B. will get his. Theres nothing shameful about being sympathetic.

If the guys story is legit I feel for him too. If it is a WG ploy, Oh Well it's just another turd in their Shit Foundation holding up that big kernal of Yellow Corn!

I did the same thing a couple of times....What got me off that game is when one of the mokes had the balls to list one for sale a couple of weeks after I gave it to him. Saying how it was in new condition. For the same price it was on the shop...Never again...

neddles,

The place was never a true horological site - I mean, look at the caliber of people running it - but when it first began, at least people could argue the merits of a brand; I know I posted a lot of anti-Invicta stuff and I never really got called on it. Now, people are being banned left and right for just agreeing with someone who is considered "negative," or for posting on other blogs. It also seemed to have a more open and breezy tone until Lalo's minion's "bought" the place.

Honestly, koi is the only person I've found online that has the right idea - good lord, this is watches were are talking about. Anytime a sponsor gets involved, stuff gets pushed under the rugs or transparently forgotten about or ignored. It's really no different than with newspapers and magazines, they can't help themselves. Find, say, The New York Post criticizing a FOX TV program. Oh, that's right, it'll never happen - they're the same company. Same with sports networks like YES in New York; when Yankees stars are, say, involved in steroid controversies, the announcers there always either neglect to mention what's going on or bury the lead so far it's comical. So as soon as Lalo's beady-eyed stare started appearing on the front page, WG became Invicta Or Die Site. now it's populated by kooks and a lot of simps, and you have people like Davis online with a straight face saying stuff like "Rolex is overrated." WGs yell, "yay, Michael." But then again, that's the audience IWG is trying to cultivate.

Jeez, this stuff gets easy to figure out once you really think about it - Rolex and Omega advertise at high end world sporting events, advertise in glossy magazines, and are sold only in fine stores. IWG stuff is sold primarily on a home shopping network where the audience apparently never refers to a book or newspaper. So? They attract customers who fall for every BS line by Skelton, Sommerstein, and Davis without researching anything at all - such as, sadly, those amazing MSRPs.

In other words, IWG has created their own customer base of pure suckers.

As has been said above this is the exact sort of people that home shopping networks target as there core customers. Internet forums such as WatchGeeks are also places where there are a large amounts of socially rejected and mentally challenged/handicapped people find and call home.

Both the nice people on the television and the friendly people on the forums is there connection to the outside world. They need that connection with people who are of like mind and situations since they will offer the pity and the pat on the head to console them and make them feel special. People like this are truly sad parts of our society who really need a swift kick in the ass to become an active participating and contributing member of society.

Seriously if this person is in such bad shape how the hell can he afford internet connection and cable/satellite television service? Seriously just think a second ... how can he afford that or even afford a Once Only on a $65 Invicta Pro-Diver with 6 Value Pays and FREE shipping?

Most type as they speak and speak as they type, can you imagine this person interacting with anyone in normal day society? Even a below average high school freshman repeating 8th grade for the 7th time can communicate with the world better than he. Seriously folks this is the typical person that infomercials, home shopping networks and most sponsored and heavily moderated forums prey upon.

Ask yourselves this simple question, if his lack of even basic 4th or 5th grade grammar and spelling is that poor do you think that possibly his wife realized that she could easily do better and might have? Children are also products of there parents and if the kids are as screwed up as he is saying that did not happen overnight but they have been shaping and forming to the way they are now since the first days of there lives. He has only himself and his wife to blame for how there children are. How sad it really is to have Jim Skelton, Eyal Lalo, Invicta and ShopNBC to be the special thing that bonds daddy and son, how truly sad that is.

I dont know but just thinking of this guy makes me want to lobby and vote for public mercy euphemization programs to help our society rid itself of truly inferior DNA.

Second to last paragraph, you used the word THEY instead of the word THE Last sentence of the same paragraph you used the word THERE. When you want to imply possession you spell the word THEIR. We all make mistakes.

Comparing JTN's minor T mixups to OG's linguistic disaster doesnt diminish what i think are some accurate observations he made about oceanghost. Add to this koi's noting that this guy started the "jill is hot" post and my own feeling that pulling his son into his dark place isnt good fathering and ill reserve my sympathy for now. BTW, lest anyone think that the guy isnt getting enough sympathy, Jim S has already jumped on this thing applauding himself and expressing great joy that he and invicta helped the guy out. By selling him watches????

I agree with JtN's assessment of oceanghost39 as I joked about him in a previous post. If his life is so empty that he thinks Invicta saved it he soon will find out otherwise. A person this deeply depressed only gets shortlived bouts of joy, usually from material objects. When the Invicta high is gone he'll probably blow his brains out. The spelling analogy was meant to show that his wife left him for being a fucking loser not his bad grammer, and to give Jtn a chuckle.

Jesus H...I don't know what to think about this one! Either a shout out for sympathy or sucking up to Skully. If watching Skully and Co. takes him out of his doldrums, there's a lot to be said for this character.
