    As per your ad, I'll pay $1 for one. I'll have my cousin who lives in Buckhead pick it up and hold it for me. Way to jump on a forum and try and start selling something from post #1. This should go over well. I've got my popcorn, gonna sit back and watch how this one goes.

    @ Griffin, thank you for your thoughtful words.  I have actually been an egg owner for 15 years, and have been a member of this forum for about half that time.  I recently went thru a terrible divorce, and i am trying to make ends meet.  If you have anything else creative to say, please do so at any time.  Otherwise, i will continue to utilize my resources to try and provide food and education for my children.

    I will not go a penny lower than $2.

    Have a blessed day.

    I love that "Have a blessed day" has turned into "go $%^& yourself a$$hole" in recent years.

    if you have been here as long as you say then you know bettter not to do direct marketing here. inspite of that, nice tables and there are plenty always looking where to buy one. to bad they dont have a spot for people marketing products that go hand in hand with the egg

    If i remembered that, i wouldnt have had to create a new profile....old user name, inactive email....Kinda funny though.  This started out because a friend send me a post from here, where someone was looking for a custom table.  Thought that it may be a way to help myself and others.  I guess i could quit my day job and have a couple thousand posts on here about this and that, but I really dont need it.  I live in a neighborhood full of egg heads, and live a 2 min walk from the owner of BGE.  Just trying to generate some business and perhaps learn a few things along way.  Then, funny man Griffin wanted to indoctrinate me.  the reality is, i dont really care.  Apparently, he has too much time on his hands.  I didnt re-join this morning to generate rudeness, or accept it.  

    ciao,
  • I would hate to have so many people flag this honest christians ad and make it harder for him to feed his family. Don't do that guys....

    If there are rules against this sort of thing....my apologies.  No need for the sarcasm.  Someone could have simply sent a message, but that would be the mature thing to do.

    Have a nice day.

    Cham, if you have been a part of the EGG community for as long as you are claiming, you would know that coming on here and self promoting is a no no. Proof is in the pudding brother, no hard feelings on my end, but don't try to BS us.

    God bless.

  • Also Chamlin,

    Your website headline says custom wood woks. Are you making tables or woks? Must be tables because the last wood wok I tried didn't last long, however the smoke flavor was intense.

  • While you have my sympathy in regards to your recent divorce and I can appreciate your desire to continue to provide for your children that does not provide you the right to trample on the "terms of service" or forum rules which you agreed to when joining this forum regardless if it was years ago or today.

    As clearly noted in the terms of service.

    "All posters are required to adhere to the Forum Rules and abide by common standards of courtesy so that all participants can contribute, share information and enjoy the forum EGGsperience - and by joining this forum and posting, you agree to the Forum Rules as posted on this website. Thanks for visiting the EGGhead Forum!"

    The following is the first post of the forum rules in the event you neglected to completely read the terms of service prior to agreeing and completing your registration.

    "
    General Forum Rules

    Spam, as we all know by now, is an unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or promotion of other websites, or non-relevant posts intended to promote something or someone. This sort of spam cannot be cooked on an EGG - although the other kind can, and you will find some great recipes on the forum! Please do not spam or self-promote on this forum."

    @chamlin

    I don't think anyone is trying to be overtly mean to you. The obvious sarcasm was in response to your obvious dereliction of the rules. We did not make them. They allow the forum to exist as intended.

    Here is the key part of what I linked to:

    General Forum Rules

    Spam, as we all know by now, is an unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or promotion of other websites, or non-relevant posts intended to promote something or someone. This sort of spam cannot be cooked on an EGG - although the other kind can, and you will find some great recipes on the forum! Please do not spam or self-promote on this forum.

    While we recognize that some forum members are also active as suppliers to the BGE community, we do insist that commercialism be kept in check. Please don't spam the forum with posts touting links intended to sell products, or blatantly attempt to self-promote your business or generate traffic to other websites or forums, etc. If this occurs, your posts will be deleted and your account may be temporarily suspended or banned permanently. Spamming also includes unsolicited private messages or material sent to a large number of different users, so don't try that either.

    I believe that the answer to why you gained the unintended reaction is found here.

    You guys should really take it easy. Did he break a rule? Sure. Did he lie and try to promote a product like Mr. Mangrate? No. At least he's honest.

    How about we have a little respect and ease off on the unprovoked name calling? You're grown ups, and it's just a BBQ forum. Jeese people.

    I don't think Mr. Mangrate has ever lied. He just enjoys hyperbole.

    LMAO....

    If someone will be kind enough to tell me how to delete the post, i will be happy to do it.  No one likes spam.  That was never my intent.  @michigan_jason, thanks for the typo catch.  Your comment was really funny.  My friend just published that for me this week, and apparently she cannot spell and apparently i cannot proofread worth a darn.

    i liked the tables, wish he left it up longer, maybe someone would have bought one and posted about it to keep his name out there longer. bge has a point with there rules there and theres no telling if he is honest or not but he did gain some respect for simply removing his post

    chamlin, I think that this place really is harmless.Don't worry about deleting it. I don't even think you can. Worst case, you're going to get some ribbing.
