    Bad online stores

    Where, if at all, can we put warnings on dodgy online stores?

    If we can't at this forum, is there any other forum that allows it.

    I just don't want other beginners to cop bad service and possibly a con as I did on my first time buy of gear.

    Hi Bathory .. we dont really encourage "revenge" or "payback" posting but if you feel you have a valid grievance or poor experience then you are free to express your personal experience , however if the post borders on slander or heresay or is generally perceived to be simply posted to hurt an individual or their business then its a waste of time ...

    Its fine to say " I had a bit of a bad experience with XXXX because they gave me what I consider to be incorrect information and a faulty product , I found their aftersales to be lacking etc " but if you want to post "XXXXX is a lying piece of crap and they are as dodgey as a left handed screwdriver PLUS they broke into my home and interfered with my cat in a very unprofessional manner " .. then Facebook is the place for you !

    If you HAVENT approached the retailer to air your grievances or sort out the problem ... THIS isnt the place to do so ...

    While we don't ecourage dodgey vendors , we also don't encourage slander or defamation.

    Like always in business vote with your wallet ...

    But dont be malicious in intent ... it only lowers YOUR standing in the community , and possibly puts the forum ( i.e. ME , the other Mods and the Owner..) in the shyte !

    Yes, but only when it's unprofessional.
