*VOTE* Should STP Be A Sponsor/Vendor Here?
    #805976 - 08/09/02 01:18 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Should "Keeper" (Spore Trading Post) be allowed to do what he is proposing here:

STP's Proposal


Do We Want STP Here?

*YES He should give Shroomery Members/Visitors special pricing.
*NO He shouldn't get our business because of his practices.
*This should be left up to Thor alone to decide.

Looks like your poll doesnt work. If it did, I would vote no. It sounds like nobody is falling for his high ass prices anymore, so he has to come here and lower the prices b/c he isint making no more money. I already know who my favorite vendors are and that will stay the same no matter if he wants to sell spores for 3 bucks a piece.

I say he should go fuck himself. I dont need spores for $3, I'll pay the $10 or whatever from TLG (or anyone else)... hell I might even get a free one (TLG policy with all orders). So $3 + ship (well, i'm guessing there will be shipping on top of the $3) for a few common syringes, or $10 (or even $8 on sale, TLG) + $5 ship, + free syringe, so thats $15 (or even $13) for 2 syringes ($6.5 a syringe!), shipped extremely fast, from someoen whos not trying to fuck over newbies by charging WAY too much.

Oh, and sorry for using TLG as my only example, other vendors I'm sure have deals that resembles these.

Oh, I forgot to say, if he is strictly only advertising the $3 syringe site on the shroomery, then Ii guess he should be allowed. But if hes advertising for STP, then the shroomery will just be hurting newbies even more by guiding them to that fucks website. I think thats inly fair (even if hes only trying to do this to fuck over other vendors, which i doubt he'll be successful, and it is a 'free market')

Thanks for creating a fix for my half-asleep act of stupidity in leaving out the poll end. Glad you approve of the poll. I mainly did it to see how bad he gets trashed.

I voted yes. Let him atone for his past evil doings. Heheh. But I also think it is up to Thor. It is his frigging site.

No. It is STRICKLY for the Shroomery. You will get an access code once a month. You will only have access to spores. No equipment or any of the bullshit named spores.

It will have NOTHING to do with STP, Inc.

I'm with blitz. $3 + whatever Keeper would charge for shipping probably wouldn?t be any better than some of the deals offered by other vendors. And since the guy is a complete fuck, it really doesn?t matter to me what he charges. I won?t be buying anything from him, and I don't see why anyone would want him here.

It?s obviously Thor?s decision, but I voted no.
Hopefully Thor still feels the same way he did a year ago?

Fuck you, Keeper.
Oh, and b-o-o h-o-o that another vendor is selling ?your? strain for less than $75.

That is all I am asking for.

Allow me to say, 'I am sorry'. Allow me to create a place for the members of the Shroomery to get spores for next to nothing.

As far as shipping. Whatever it cost to ship the spores via UPS is what you will be charged. I have to pay about $1.00 for the box and packing peanuts. I have an UPS account so I get really good prices for shipping. You pay $6 for a total of 2 syringes and s/h cost you about $5-$7 dollars...will, that would be about $13 bucks! Order more syringes and you get better pricing due to the fact s/h SHOULD stay a constant.

Allow me to at least get it going for you. You will place an order via credit card OR m/o and I will have the spores in the mail within 24 hours.

Show you better (my opinion only..of course) of spores collecting and making spore syringe cleanly!

You will see!

I already gave this Shane guy $50 for two Ecuador syringes that were completely unviable. Why would his syringes suddenly be better for $3.

No Way!

Good point, bush. I don?t trust his product either.
And Shane, the prices you mentioned are comparable to boxtop?s, so I still can?t figure out why we should buy anything from you. Since boxtop is not?well?you, I would much rather deal with him (or one of the other Shroomery vendors).

So...Hawk sells his for $12 and I sell mine for $3...how do you get that it will be about the same?

I realize I am an ass, and all of that. That is why I would like to change...on step at a time. First by offering great prices to the shroomery and then...branchingit out to the net.

If they were not good (spores) why didn't you just contact me?
It might have gotten cooked along the way or frozen. Whichever the case, my company would have made it right...we always do.

Fatloco

Looks to me like a lot of vendors here have "fleeced newbies", so to speak. A while back I paid three times or so to a local vendor here what I could have paid if I did a little research on drierite. I sure as hell am not going to blame the vendor. Of course nobody is going to fleece you if you do a little homework. Unless you've gotten your fingers diced off in a mowing accident, you're as capable as the next person at punching in some data into a search engine. You know, some of you people would cut off your own peckers to spite your old lady's face.

Let the man atone for his evil doings. Ain't that the fucking Christian way?

In answer to your question...

You can get 2 TLG syringes for as low as $6.50 - $7.50 each
You can get 5 TLG syringes for as low as about $6.00 - $7.00 each
Current TLG special: 8 syringes for $6.25 each
All of these prices include shipping (If someone sees a mistake, then please correct me)

Now do you see? The prices you are purposing don?t sound so special.

Actually:

3 x Cambodian ($8 each)+ 1 free Cambodian + 1 free gulf Coast + $5 ship

$29 / 5 = $5.8 a syringe

of course that low of a price is very limited, but his weekly deals (hence weekly) do change often.

Also, liek I said before, even tho the prcies are very close.. I'd still rather pay $15 for 1 syringe from *any* vendor rather then paying $3 for a syringe from STP.

But more importantly, which I think Thor agrees (or I atleast hope so) is that the shroomery is probably a main reason for a lot of people NOT ordering from STP, (which I think Thor, and the rest of us are very proud of) and if there was STP advertisements, I think a lot of newbies would have a very hard time making the "right" decision.

And even more importantly, obviously, this is going to HELP STP's business, which, if it was for anyone else I would be sayign the opposite, but in this case, I think the majority of the peope here would love to se ehim go out of business.

Now he's claiming he 'wants to change'... but I'm 99% sure he's just full of shit. And from what I've seen, hes also a complete asshole.

And I think most of us really hate this fuck because we almost (or if your unlucky, you did) order from this guy, which woul dof been an extreme rip-off.

In defense of the Keeper, other people do charge more for products then they should, and his business is legit (he's not exactly 'ripping people off'), but his prices are complete bull shit, and I feel bad for the idiots that order from him.
