Does anyone have any experience with LamiTheLion?
We started a trade a long time ago and I finished my half, unsure about his half. He told me he had it I think at some point and was going to send it so I told him my addy. I am yet to recieve it :C

Just now I IM'd him and this happpened:
UffishJabberwock (4:44:10 PM): Trade?
LamiTheLion signed off at 4:45:39 PM.
lamithelion is offline and will receive your IMs when signing back in.
UffishJabberwock (4:47:50 PM): I would like you to reply to my PMs on FA so I can send you the badge I made you. I was wondering if you finished mine as well.
LamiTheLion is unable to receive offline IMs.

Seeing as you can leave IMs for people when they are offline and it says it above, but then can't send it makes me think he blocked me and is avoiding me for some reason.

Found out that he DID block me because I got my mate to add him to her buddy list and he was online. I made her IM him about it and he said he was going to block her as well because he "doesn't want anything to do with the fandom anymore." So he won't even finish my badge before he leaves the fandom. I personally see that as rude since you can finish up old ends and THEN leave.
I also read his journal on FA and apparently he is going to FurFright even though he doesn't want anything to do with the fandom after it. Doesn't make sense to me to go to Furfright if he detests furries as much as he says he does.

No. As in horse shit like people flying off the handle over little things like this. The OP didn't even get scammed out of it completely, but merely scammed out of time.

Nothing of value was taken. No money was lost. Therefore furries like yourself would rather assume shit about people they've never met and most likely never heard of based off of their personal beliefs.

Considering the fact you're picking a fight, you're a little late to be "IN B4 INTERNET FIGHT!"

You admit your friend scammed the OP out of her time, but even though time = money her time is supposedly worthless to you and your friend? Nice attitude, wish the OP knew about it before an art trade was mentioned.

I suppose it's better late than never for people to find out that you and your friends are a pair of childish, lying thieves.

Time is valuable, the OP could have spent the time earning money so yes, that is a scam. So yeah, your friend basically stole from someone, them complaining about it is hardly 'horse shit'.

But the fact still stands that ht did not leave the fandom over this. No money was exchanged. Move on.

Not when he's freely admitted to stealing from commissioners.

Sorry, this still deserves to be here.

And since you're so sure he wouldn't give two shits about this post, why are you spending so much time and energy with it?

Follow your own advice and move on.

Because I'm backing him up.

Like I said before, you need to move on because it's not like the OP is going to get any money out of it other than the huge hugbox-like mentality of this community.

If he doesn't give two shits about this post and he feels completely justified with his decision to just up and leave, what backing up is there to do?

If this is his decision, as it obviously is, then why do the opinions of any of us matter? Seriously?

We're concerned about the person involved in the trade because we in this community have a like minded view of such things. Lami and you obviously see things differently. That's your right.

Neither of us is going to change the other's minds. So why not just do yourself a favor and move on yourself? We're going to continue to be concerned about this and Lami will continue to not give a flying fuck.

Just go and leave us be, hmmm? Easier for you that way, isn't it? Or is it a slow day on the 'nets and you've run out of /b/tards to smack around?

The fact still stands that if you took the whole "furry" out of this, then anyone going "I'm just not going to fulfill my obligations" is still a thief/scammer who deserves to get negative publicity.

Oh and anyone who supports or justifies thievery is obviously a few sandwiches short of a picnic. I wonder if you wouldn't care if someone took your money/goods and didn't provide the promised services. Sometimes tells me that you most certainly wouldn't be defending someone if you were the victim of the scam.

I don't sell anything within the furry community. I'm smarter than that.

Even outside of the furry fandom you can get scammed.
Oct. 15th, 2008 08:11 pm (UTC)
Of course, but the furry community has a higher percentage than most due to the "oh you're a furry so I can trust you" mentality that SO MANY live with.
Oct. 15th, 2008 08:13 pm (UTC)

Not really, I've run into way more real life scammers than I have furry scammers. Fact is in any business there are going to be assholes who like to rip others off.

I'm just hope that we'll be privy to his bawling when he gets swindled out of effort and/or cash. I'm sure it will be "LIEK OMG TOTALLY DIFFERENT!" when that happens.

Of course it will. :P
