Why are there several senior members of this forum deciding to pick a fight with me?

All I did was post a simple request for people to help me out with some information and I get attacked?!

Isn't this group about helping others?

If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything!

It should not matter that I have not been on this group for that long a time. No one deserves to be bullied and attacked if they didn't do anything wrong.

Donít be too offended, they arenít senior and youíre right theyíre being petty. Your post was valuable, and very much appreciated. Nothing egregious enough on their part for me to moderate, though they could be gentler and more welcoming.

Heads up, this particular section is called Just Shmooze and things are a bit more relaxed (albeit confrontational at times) around here.

One last note I think someone was trying to make is that one should be extra careful when doing business with buying groups (or any other party) one isnít well acquainted with, especially if it involves fronting money.

I don't think anyone was trying to bully or pick a fight, they were just trying to give some (hopefully) helpful advice.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

1. As said, they aren't mamesh senior, and I don't think they were trying to pick a fight, and as said, they are really looking out for your good, since way to many people lose too much money in this industry.

The simple request had insinuations they may have boded not well for you, and they wanted to make you aware of that.

This group is definitely about helping others, sometimes it may require looking a little bit past the surface and the way things come across at first glance.

People may have sharper ways ways of saying things, but usually don't have not nice things to say.

In regards to being treated like a mensch, it definitely doesn't matret that you weren't on here for a while, and no one deserves to be bullied and attacked.

People that have been here for longer and invested into giving in addition to taking may be a bit ticked off when someone who hasn't made that same investment to the same extent gives off a vibe of entitlement.

Hi Everyone, I recently got more involved in BG's and wanted to tap into the group members for BG's that I am not aware of.

The following are what I have found so far. Please let me know if you are aware of any others:

Pointsmaker
MYS
USA Buying Group
YRCW
Buy For Me Retail
EMB
CloseoutNJ
Pinnacle

There is also https://torontobuyinggroup.ca/, but that seems to be only for Toronto area people.
Buyers for points is another one.

I posted a satirical comment pointing out the irony of this thread, and in true JS fashion it spiraled. Welcome to the Forums.

im flattered to be spoken of being a senior member.
I apologize if i came off as bullyish it wasnt my intention. as mentioned this board is more relaxed and ppl poke fun at each other in good nature. by the fact that we're doing it to you proves youre a worthy member of the group so welcome  :)
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

You did read the title of this thread, correct?!
You read this thread, correct? ;) This is the unofficial bg thread...
IMO:
BG carries a certain level of risk, and should only be pursued by those with sufficient familiarity to be able to make informed risk decision.
i.e. not a topic for spoonfeeding...
