Forum Members please forgive my "naivete" ..

edwardjulioedwardjulio Posts: 1,029 ✭✭✭✭✭

The following was recently posted in a thread about Stewart Blay on another forum by an individual claiming to be a knowledgeable coin dealer:

"I have never claimed to know everything. But much if not most of what is posted on CU's coin forum is completely false nonsense propagated by naive, know-nothing collectors and amateur dealers, which is why I will not visit it. Just the facts, please."

I do not know who this individual is or the company. The content provided on this forum is educational and beneficial. So, if I stick around and continue to learn, please forgive me for my attendance.

    Generally, I've noticed that if a member states something agreeable to the reader, he is considered a coin-savant. He is a wannabe, amateur, or scammer. If it is controversial and the reader disagrees.

    I will consider the source that made that comment on the CAC forum. I have gotten to a point where I don’t even bother reading his worthless posts or comments. When he admitted that his company takes details coins and doctors them I moved on.

    Are there examples of these coins?

    Some folks will simply play coin forum members as if they're just passing time toying with so many little balls of yarn

    I have observed that incorrect information posted is usually corrected by other posters.

    If that was posted in a thread about Stewart's passing then it appears to be in rather poor taste, even if it were in response to another thread. Just take it to a PM and don't muddy up a thread where folks are paying tribute or sending condolences. Just my opinion given what we have in this thread and the fact that I am not familiar with the background.

    It’s interesting, there really wasn’t much background. This poster started the thread about Stewart’s passing, and in the comments, he just had to throw it out there that he heard about it from Google, not the “cu forums, the land of fake numismatic news”

    I believe you are, however, familiar with the poster. He had encounter with you on a thread about conservation where he claimed your analogy was bizarre and your avatar pic was “weird” 😂

    It appears he has my number. I apologize for my transgressions. 😁
    I should be ashamed of myself 😂
    Its like he looked deep into my soul and saw me for what I am 🙃

    Wow!! A statement like that would immediately make me question the attitude and qualifications of the poster. Can someone PM me what his handle was when he was a forum member here please?? Cheers, RickO

    "much if not most" and "completely false" are such a sweeping statements. How did one come to THAT conclusion? I've come into this forum for about 20 years and have never got that impression of the posters here. I've been going to shows since 1992 and have a good idea what the coin market is about and I'm pretty sure this forum (and NGC as well....although I don't really post there anymore) doesn't have "most" information that is "completely false". That is utter non-sense. It's best, IMO, to ignore such non-sense and move on.

    Aw heck... now I got to know.

    Can somebody PM the link and character involved?

    I am certainly no expert, and might argue the route to the destination, but I know enough to stay in my lane.

    This member was given the hammer over at the CAC forums, possibly by a “popular vote.” There were a lot of complaints about that poster.

    Scratch my previous comment - the ban was only temporary. I guess it’s better than nothing!

    Ehh, well see if this 12hr ban has any meaningful impact on his behavior, I'm not holding my breath.

    The ban hasn’t been reversed yet, but the admins did state it was temporary.

    My Google search only found this thread! Maybe Google was trying to protect me from disinformation?! >:)

    In any case, @DeplorableDan has PMed me the link.
