I've never read or heard anyone call you a "horrible evil scammer
pedophile."  Nor have I heard any threats made against you (and
certainly not your son.)

But you're certainly a thief.  Many consider depriving people of their
hard earned money as horrible and evil.

It has not been ten years since you scammed people as you promised to
refund the rest of the money owed to me after last years VCFMW and you
never did so.

I was due the money because you took money from me for shipping and then
never shipped the items and didn't refund the money.  Your whole
solution was that I could drive hundeds of miles to pick up items I had
already paid you to ship (with you keeping the shipping money as well.)

These are all facts.  No name calling.

Personally I had thought you were trying to turn over a new leaf, but
that wasn't the case.  I doubt you are now either.  You're certainly not
the poor martyred saint you're trying to make yourself out to be.

I've had great luck dealing with people in my hobbies including vintage
computing.  Almost all are trustworthy and act as members of the
collecting community.

You do not and the community would be better if you were to "quietly

You've made your bed by your admitted scamming people ten years ago (and
by the facts which show you're still at it.)
