A&P Fred Miranda is the worse site ever v.LOL

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by LowLikeWhoaF150, Mar 23, 2007.

  1. So there is a thread with a guy selling two 2gb sandisk ultra II's for $100 and there are seriously 4 or 5 people who are interested and asking the buyer if they got their PM's and are not getting responses. So I chime in saying that I also have these cards for sale and will take the same price but I won't be a cock blocker and sell my stuff until he sells his (want to be fair) and I also say in my post. If anyone has any problem with me posting that in the thread I'll remove the post. The post wasn't even there for 5 hours.. So I go to check my PM's this afternoon and I can't do anything..... like WTF... :squint: :squint: :squint:


    I was having problems logging in so I made a new account and I visited my old post and found out that my account has been locked :mamoru: :ugh:


    This is why I say FredMiranda.com is a joke


    You have to "subscribe" (pay money) to have the ability to post for sale ads. :ugh:
    No warning before ban, not even slap on the wrist... wtf?
    No email informing me that my account is locked?
    When will my "account lock" be lifted? Will it ever be unlocked?

    oh well i really don't care anyways. Just made another new account :o

    Unlimited POP email addys FTW :hsd:

    i took it out of my favorites and stopped visiting it because of how slow it was and how hard it was to look at. jesus people at least spend the $85 a year on a vb license.

    Since the beginning of this month. I've since stopped going there. It's too slow to bother with and if I'm being forced to pay for something I'm sure as hell not going to wait 30 seconds for a search to come back.

    So let me guess if I understand correctly

    a known troll was banned for implying he had another card for sale for cheaper on the same thread..something which is obviously against the rules

    Remember you got caught once with the whole copy and copyright thing right there..you don't think they would be edgy with anything you wrote?
     

  10. known troll?! :ugh: :ugh: :ugh:


    How is this trolling? How is this being an offensive in ANY way...?






    please tell me how that is trolling, and wow I'm shocked that you would even say something like this to me.
    And yeah the account that I had where teh whole copyright drama went down was a totally different account, FM.com isn't like OT. I doubt anyone on there ever remembers that whole bullshit. You guys on the other hand won't give it up. Oh well what can i say. :rolleyes:

    ohh please dont give the whole..im shocked thing..im not insulting you or anything, im just trying to present the other point of view.

    Now if they indeed had no idea who you were and just posted that randomly..then it is pretty damn anal of them
     

  13. No one did know who I was on there. And again I have another new username on FM.com. Once again i'm just another newbie on FM.com.









    It's just really shitty that you can get banned instantly without even getting a warning. I've never seen a forum like that... :eek3:

    I really only use FM.com for their for sale section and I rarely sell or buy anything anyways. I just like to check & see how much things are going for. I seen people interested in buying 2gb cards for $100 so I figured I'd also try to sell mine after the original poster sells his! There is plenty of memory cards and plenty of buyers to go around!! It's not like I came in the guys thread and offered to sell the same cards for $20 cheaper than the original poster was trying to get. NOW THAT would be an asshole thing to do. But for me to say "hey I have the same cards, after the OP sells his I'll sell mine too for the SAME PRICE"... :eek3: Wow that's a totally bannable offense without any warning!!!!!!!!!!!!!:rolleyes:

    I still find it stupid that they make you pay to post a for sale ad. Unless someone sells a whole lot of shit then it's pretty worthless. It's ok, I can continue to visit other better forums for free. :coold: :mamoru:

    this is what u get for being a little bitch and breaking the rules.
     
  17. Are you serious? I see it all the time :gtfo:
     
  18. :rofl: yeah I broke the rule by trying to steal the guys sale even though I made it clear in the thread that I would not sell until after he sells his...:ugh:

    AND I clearly said that if he would rather not have me trying to sell my stuff after he sells his I would delete my post. Hello, I could have easily PM'd all the people who were interested in buying the cards and offered to sell my cards for $20 cheaper!!! But i'm not an asshole like that.

    allows vs actually happens is different. Read the rules, photo forums don't allow it.

    How hard is it to post a new thread? lazy ass :greddy:
     
  20. You gotta pay to post new for sale thread, that's the REAL reason I got banned. :greddy:

    Mr Fred Miranda is a greedy widdle guy :hay:

    Yeah, what an asshole that guy is to actually allow people to make money off of his FREE site that he probably pays more for bandwidth in a month for than you make in a year.

    What a dick. :rolleyes:
     
  22. :rofl: :bowdown: Yeah man!!! More than I make in a year! :bowdown: very mature :bigthumb:








    Free site? Not much about it is free anymore. When's the last time you signed up? He kinda now tricks new members into HAVING to pay for their new accounts.

    OT is free + alot bigger with ALOT less restrictions and uses 2000000 BILLION more time as bandwith per month. Only thing fazle sells is subscriptions which are optional. FM sells the same and they sell the right to make posts in the for sale section and you have to seperately buy the right to post pictures or something, and he makes money off of ads, and he has a bunch of photoshop actions and all kinds of other stuff for sale that he makes money off of. Trust me, his monthly bandwith bill is nothing compared to what he's making in profit just from that site alone. With that profit he could better the site by buying faster servers and making some changes but like I said...

    EDIT: Oh yeah OT when you buy a subscription it is very cheap compared to FM. And when you buy a subscription on OT you get to look at free porn and not have to worry about downloading virus's. :bowdown:

    cheeper than ebay, and no other board is as active or has as many customers.

    I sold 2 lenses in less than 5 minutes one day, and you can still buy without paying

    You can still use as much of his site for free as you can here. Hell, I can at least have an avatar and use the search there still for free, unlike here. I just used it yesterday. You dont have to pay to post photos as long as you have them hosted and link to them. Same as most forums. I dont see a single advertisement on his forums, can you show me them? And actually there are about the same number of members here as FM has, 165k here and 148k there and as of right now close to the same number of people online (1200-1600). So I'd have a really hard time with the thinking that OT is that much bigger and using that much more bandwidth (no doubt larger as I know its one of the largest out there and FM is not on the Big-Boards list, but not 2000000 BILLION times bigger).

    I agree that if he is going to do that and charge he should put money into a better system as I dont use it hardly at all becuase its so slow (not to mention full of a bunch of wankers).

    However, I dont see how anyone can ever complain about a free site that someone is doing on their own. No doubt he is making some money and no doubt he is using the site to sell his actions, how dare he try to make money?

    Being involved with one of the largest forums on the internet, I know what goes on behind the scenes and what it costs and I dont think its fair when people complain about something that is FREE to use.

    Kudos to OT for still being somewhat free, but if they added classifieds tomorrow and you had to pay to post, would you be complaining as much?
     
  25. Ebay and FM are TOTALLY different, and besides Ebay is 200000 billion times bigger than OT and OT is 20000000 billion times bigger than FM.com. If Ebay and FM.com were planets in our solar system Ebay would be the sun and FM.com would be pluto. :mamoru: And no Ebay is not more expensive than FM.com. If you want to sell one thing on ebay you might spend $4.00 on ebay fees, maybe more depending on what you're selling and what additional features you want. But on FM.com you have to pay $24 to have the ability to make the post in the thread. Yeah if you're selling alot of stuff FM.com is the cheaper way to go but Ebay has the much larger audience.

    FM buy/sell might be more active only because there you can find people selling both Canon and Nikon gear. POTN buy/sell is pretty active too, but it's only canon gear. And most of the stuff you see for sale at FM.com you can also see for sale at POTN, only it doesn't cost anything to sell at potn and there are less nikon shooters there so you have more potential buyers.
