    Talk about stealing, you WILL be banned

    This is a fair warning, we DO NOT like people who steal.



    If you post on this forum, that you stole something for scrap, YOU WILL BE BANNED.

    DO NOT STEAL, if you're not sure, ASK. If there's nobody to ask, DON'T TAKE IT!

    Absolutely ZERO tolerance for thieves on this forum.

    That is all, pretty straight forward.

    You would think that this would be a given... the people who steal make up a large percentage of why this industry is misunderstood/frowned upon.

    They don't post about on here, though.
    People may laugh at me, but that's ok. I laugh all the way to the bank.

    Well spoken, I hope to have my yard open for business by next week sometime. If I even suspect something is swiped I won't take it. If I know its swiped I'll turn them in, so don't bring hot stuff to me.

    I would let them run their thieving mouths then post a big red t on each of their posts and one on their fore heads. That way every one would know who they are.

    If you're dumb enough to steal you're twice as dumb to post it!!! Thieves are the equivalent to crackheads.

    And the rest of us have to do everything we can to promote honest scrapping and honest scrappers. Shame this minority tarnishes all of us

    Would almost rather have a crackhead freind than a thief. At least I would know his intentions.

    I am again impressed with the integrity of the moderators of this site. It makes me enjoy being a paid member even more. There is a difference between money spent and money well spent. This site has proven to be money very well spent. It is a pleasure to do business with you folks.
    There may a million better places to live than Iowa, but none of them are home!

    I hope the farmer isn't on his way to jail now, it ticks me off when the crooks have more rights than the honest people.
