That should send a loud and clear message to Mr. Lalo.


You might also consider buying during Eyal's Pony Farm events.

is the place still up? How many finally signed up for it or are they still looking for displaced and wandering rubes.

Even some of the moderators there have joined in the Invicta trashing. I have made at least 20-25 negative posts on Invicta, and not received a single warning or deletion. Not even many geeks try to defend those shit watches anymore. The place will never possess one tenth the class of Watchlords, but it is a huge step up from watchgeeks. As long as they do not allow the infestation of people like nismo and davis, it should be a decent place for those that just like their"tv" watches.
We called another exterminator to take care of the rat problem in the basement. This one hasn't come out either.

I checked it out a couple days ago and, at least in some areas, it's like watching 5 years of suppressed bile getting cut loose.

The internet forum version of lancing a boil with at least one of the moderators being at the forefront of the villagers with torches and pitchforks.

I think that is what they fully intend to do. But at least they want to grow the forum. Not like a few here that would like to have only five guys, all agreeing on the same damn thing.

If growing a forum in the name of increasing membership results in it morphing into something lame like all the others, I would find NO benefit in it (after all you would have twenty+ of virtually the same forum........ ).

Of course I'm sure I couldn't get five guys to agree with me on this but it is my thought.

Gotta agree. Last time I checked the place, yes, there was a lot of pretty open IWG bashing going on, to be sure - but move to a different thread and it's not WG Lite - it's WG Megatron, where the most starry-eyed and tasteless TV watch lovers lavish praise on Sea Spiders and that Hydromix abortion - as well as personalities such as "Master Wing" and the usual assortment. Heartening is the sale forum, where dozens of IWG crapola pieces are laying to rot, with disheartened mokes having to cut prices time and again to even get the slightest bite from their fellow mouth-breathers. And then....there are those who couldn't write their name in the ground with a stick, who somehow got their hands on a PC to "write" typo-ridden prose so incomprehensible that it makes SloPo read like Jean Shepherd.

I agree with cod: Their playground is where they belong.

Ditto!

I see that Nando is back in the Hot Deals sections, still making pointless comments to rack up his post count (now around 1,200 or so in 30 days).

Mehdi : in his grandmothers basement peeking through the curtains when he hears a car pull up.

Trainerdave : still trying to sell off those 400 venoms to keep up with the ever increasing cost of steroids and boob jobs for his wife.

Ripitron: still verbally abusing anyone he can on the Chevy Volt forums about how many Kilowatts his is pushing after he dumped 100k into it and smashing jewel cases at the mall all willy nilly.

50mm and up or as he is calling himself these days Fiddy: still being a douche nozzle on fuckbook.

Horsetrack: well we all know what happened to that fucktard. Fertilizer.
