    As I recall, he has or had a G-Shock Stussy up for auction on EBay with the same sales guarantee. Is he genuine? Who knows. I usually avoid those who make seeping refund guarantees which sound to good to be true.

    Hope the mom to be is doing well.
    Best regards,

    Thanks Mike -

    The Mum and little Daniel Charles are very healthy, not sure about the Dad:-D

    That email was exactly that so had no idea it was EBay related. Why he or she with no name sent it to me is beyond:-S

    Up early here and off to the airport to meet and greet some early landers.

    I'm in for a busy day and night

    I could do with your boat right now Mike if you fancy sending Priority:thanks

    The sense of surprise is natural...

    but the initials at the end of your post are verboten.

    Forgivable in the circumstances, perhaps...

    This is the troubled with moderated fora — all the stuff that goes on behind closed doors that just leaves everyone else baffled. :-S

    This is sheer speculation of course, but maybe Ozzie's banning had something to do with his sig line. I note that in this current thread, there is no sig line posted for him. As I recall, he always had a really loud sig line. Maybe the sig line was deleted by the mod because it offended some rule.

    In fact, in reviewing Ozzie's posts for the past few days, it appears the sig line has been deleted in all of them. I could be wrong; maybe Ozzie recently decided to forego his sig line.

    I believe I've read before that Ozzie ran afoul of the proscriptions regarding commercial links in sig lines previously.

    Again, I'm merely theorizing.

    Sadly, no.

    I've occasionally been in a similar position at work. An employee is subject to disciplinary action. People come up to me as a Manager and ask, what happened, what was the reason, was it a final warning, etc?

    I tell them - if you had done something wrong, and everyone was asking me to give all the details, would you be happy if I did? The answer of course, the answer that anyone would give, is 'no'.

    That's the way it is, and the way it has to be.
