look, the reason for the CBOI to be removed and then controled was for this reason. If it were to be used solely based on the facts and left at that, then it would work. But as like 'other' sites, it turns into a popularity contest like in a school yard. It doesn't work. Even the worst of breeders will have thier followers.
Look, all that Jeff is saying is he has worked damn hard to keep this a 'safe' place to visit without the politics like 'other' sites, and Clown is on the nose with that one. The 'other' sites have lost many followers because of it's troubles.
If you are looking to buy something from someone then you use your better judgement. It's your responsibility to make sure you don't get 'taken'. The seller should be willing to show you pics or send any needed information you request. If someone that doesn't seem familiar email someone that would know, or for that fact several people. Everyone is going to have an opinion whether it be truthful or not, and on an open forum like this one, it is more than likely that it will be untruthful to mind the feelings of others.
