Not everyone deserves to know the real you. Let them criticize who they think you are.

Absolutely ridiculous.  Pay 15 at a yard sale, ask people on this forum what it's worth, then advertise it for sale at 10x the purchase price???


While I appreciate that she offered it for sale here, supposedly first, that is the kind of sh*t reserved for the "other" site.

The only thing better than BBQ is more BBQ

she asked what it was worth.
we gave her high numbers.
she offered it to us.
that's not ridiculous.

Now if she were already a member, and she found the grill and posted about it and the price she paid THEN offered it for 10x what she paid - then I would consider it ridiculous.
The harsh attitude is the kind of shit reserved for the "other" site.

I agree

Sorry, just kind of ticked me off that it seemed her only interest in joining wkc was to make a buck.

I understand your effort and stance on defending the community. I appreciate that - thank you. :)

Looking back through the thread though, I think she seems genuine.
Being a skeptic is fine. It's natural and human nature.

Presenting skepticism of another's intent without making assumptions and being rude is challenging. In situations like this, I'd rather err on the side of innocence.

I see both sides of the story and made this comment a day or 3 ago.

~~~  She came here asking for info about the grill, which she was supplied with, and well after the fact decided to sell it.  That's not the same as coming in trying to sell a kettle right out of the gate.  Actually, I think she did the perfect thing.  Posted up a semi-rare grill, provided pics, and even followed up with the desire to sell.  As Troy (?) said not too long ago, he'd rather see it posted here than ~not~ here.
~~~

I haven't seen it listed at the 'other' site, so I'm assuming it was only posted here.  I love the quality & quantity of pics Carrie Ann provided in her listing.  She did pay $15 and listed it for $150 OBO.  Yeah, it's a healthy mark-up/asking price, but she said OBO.  Golly tossed her a hunnert and she accepted.  That's 66% of her asking price.  Like we'd do anything different if we stumbled upon something worth more than we paid and had zero emotional attachment.  I'm just glad she offered it here and someone here got it.  I'd rather see it in my back yard, but this is second best.  :D
I've always had gas...  And now a bunch of kettles because of this place.  Thanks!

guys, what is this "other" site you keep mentioning.... I think I know which one but since I am new to all of this don't want to assume.  ;)  If it is controversial, feel free to shoot me a PM with a response
