    OK mr Badoman Im the one that was asking for some help I wanted to get a tank for the school, everyone on here is thinking that it was a hoax, I dont appreciate it at all, I will find help from someone else that will not be fake and will not distrust. I thought the club would have a little faith in some projects like this. If I could I would buy all the equipment for my sons school myself but I cant and thats why I was reaching out. Thanks, Now I see why people are not happy with this club.

    You gave us no information. How were we suppose to know? If you look at my thread about starting a club a lot of people felt weary cause I didn't provide enough info and I was relatively unknown to this Forum. I'm sure people would be willing help you out now that they know where and what is going on.

    Do you think people would be posting on this thread if they didn't want to help a school?
    Look in the thread and you'll see that everyone here who has posted was willing to help.

    In his defense it was kind of abrupt. An option could have been to email him, wait for him to respond with his answer and then post.

    As you can see I did say I sent an email. there was no abrupt to it. People wanted to help out and than with nothing for info doubt came into play. There was time to post the add asking for help why not have the time saying something in return to my email.

    I think he's mentioned why, with good reasoning. A loss in the family is tragic and you don't just go "Oh, I'll just reply to this Email" when something like this happens.
    This was just bad timing with the Email and the Tragic lose of a loved one and Mis-Understanding.

    Oops mentioned it a 4th time now

    I can see that and believe me I feel for you. Why can't you see that TCMAS was willing to help and because of your lack of response, for whatever reason, lead us to believe that someone was scamming on CL. people have been robbed killed rapped from CL there are bad people out there. All you had to do was speak up at any point and say "thanks gang sorry I didn't get back to you i had a death in the family." EVERYONE would be okay with that and be willing to help you.

    The point isn't that he didn't email. The point is that he comes on here and gets bent cause people doubted the CL post. no need to take it out on TCMAS and the members. We are a good group of very helpful giving people. The BOD and MODs work hard to keep it that way and have done a very fine job.
