Okay, since we're still apparently doing feedback, positive feedback for Tom Gordon.
He took a while (4-5 months?) but he kept in contact with updates on a pretty regular basis (except one spot in January...).
Finally got the rest of payment and swap today, in great condition.

Paul Lawson [] was a pleasure to

email contact with me and delivered the goods!
He went waaaay out of his way to do as he promised
and help me in any way he could.

R. A. Cantrell made me a GREAT deal on a G3/233 768 4 gig/ 9 gig/ Zip 100/
10x 10x 32 CD-RW, and it just arrived (overnight at a BARGAIN price). I'm
just stunned at how well R. A. packed this and how good the machine is. I
can't believe I was lucky enough to be the first in line for his offer!

I've always been a DAY LATE and a DOLLAR SHORT -- but R. A.'s deal at $79
plus Fed-Ex to my door beats anything I've ever experienced. Thanks again,

I can't say enough great things about Jeff Critser (
He's one cool dude, that's for sure.

If you're a Macintosh cultist (I sure am) and are within driving distance of
Madison, Alabama (outside of Huntsville), please do yourself a favor and go
visit Jeff. He was kind enough to let me haul off 8 working 14" monitors
last night. If my wife wouldn't have killed me, I would've spent a whole
pile of cash on some of the goodies he has been listing. When Jeff said,
"Bring a truck to haul off these 14" color monitors," he wasn't joking. I
didn't even make a dent in his collection. If you're in Tennessee or
Alabama, give him a shout. He has a bunch of non-Mac stuff, too, for those
of us who are into any kind of computer.

Thanks again, Jeff! See you when my next paycheck arrives!


I recently purchased a large item from David M. Ensteness which was packed well and arrived in MUCH better condition that I could have imagined. David was very helpful in providing information before and after the purchase and even enclosed a note containing related links with the item. Couldn't have asked for a better transaction.

As I told Gumby and Dan Knight in private e-mails, "" is the same seller as "," among other names. He has been banned multiple times (I think the count is somewhere near eight now) from all LEM lists due to multiple list policy violations.

I would advise everyone to be VERY wary of any transactions taking place with swappers in the Iowa City/Coralville/etc. area, particularly if said swapper is "new" to the list, using a free e-mail account, and has "J" as one of his initials. All (or mostly) lower-case typing and poor spelling are also his trademarks. He usually seems to be looking for low-key stuff like ImageWriters and SEs, stuff that probably isn't worth the cost of shipping. His former pattern (this has gradually changed) was to offer
several systems for ridiculous prices (like $200 for a CC or $150 for a 6200-series). While this pattern may change, it's at least something to look out for.

Here is a list of all known e-mail addresses (at least, all I can dig up from my archives) this person has used:
"james p"
"jason l"
"Mac-O-landtern d"

At one time, he was a registered eBayer; I have no idea what ID he used or what e-mail addy was associated with it. If anyone has this information, I'd like to know.

BE CAREFUL. This guy is ruthless. I have yet to hear any positive feedback about him, probably because he hasn't yet completed any transactions. He refuses to correspond with me any more because I've been the one who tracked him down the last three times he was banned from Swaplist. Additionally, when I banned him back in August (as AGUYNAWHTCAT), he specifically instructed me to go to hell. Somehow, I haven't made it yet :)

If anyone is suspicious of a seller/buyer, particularly one who might fit the patterns I describe above, get his ZIP code and e-mail me off-list with a heads-up.

Amber Rhea - she split shipping with me because of a tight budget and then when something didn't make it into the box before it shipped she sent it off to me at no charge.

William Ove - really nice guy, had a good time talking with him and paid promptly for the laser writer that I was able to drop off to him the next day.

Soon to finish:

Travis Lee - paid up front, very nice guy, [your printer will be available for pickup this coming weekend, I will be in touch].

Sam Burrish - Paid quickly, your switch box is in the mail as of this afternoon, sorry it took so long to get it out [moving back to college slowed me down].

Thanks Mark for a nice upgrade for an old PM 7100. I bought an old HPV 4MB card from Mark Kippert and it works great. He shipped it well and quick.

Just a positive feedback for Chris Lawson, who sent me a sealed-in-box Hypercard 2.3 for a great price, lightning fast (well, fast!) service and excellent follow-through.

Purchased a 7600 motherboard from Joshua Streiff-Fraser. He was quick to respond to my email and the transaction was handled promptly even though it took place on the 24th and 25th of the month. He immediately shipped out the product and it is working fine. He even included the video i/o port, l2 cache and vram chips! I am very satisfied and would by form Joshua without hesitation again.

Seller : "ratman"

Despite the questionable sounding nickname, ratman (lee) shipped me a beee-oootiful Lombard G3, via FedEx, promptly and well packaged. It arrived today, cunningly disguised in a slow-cooker box. :-) Wouldn't hesitate to do business with him again.

Just completed a deal (Mon, 29 Oct 2001) with John Fraser for a 7500. Haven't had a chance to fire the computer up yet, but judging from the way it was packed (bubble wrap and foam blocks, one of the best packing jobs I've ever seen!) there shouldn't be a problem.

Just a quick not about my deal w/ Steve Brown last week...After getting confirmation from him that the item he advertised was indeed what I was looking for, I sent him a money order. Steve had the item packed and ready to go and as soon as he received the money order he sent the item the same afternoon. I would definitely deal with him again!!

I have purchased cables and batteries from Mike on several occassions. Each time they were packed well and received in a timely fashion. Mike is also a good source of Mac information and is not stingy with sharing it, even when it might not be in his best financial interests to do so.

I too have had much trouble with him. My transaction started in the middle of June. He told me he had been moving. ... He never mentioned a funeral or hospital to me as he did to you. I have his phone number - for what good it does. I have phoned him several times since he never answers me e mails. Always - "I will send it" -- "I did send it" - last one 3 weeks ago.

Purchased two items from Pat (2/01). Items arrived in a timely fashion and were well packaged. I was dissapointed that the modem wasn't as fast (28.8 data/33.6 FAX) as I thought it was from the description (only mentioned 33.6), but if I had asked for clarification I am sure I could have found this out ahead of time.
