I pride myself on being an honest person, at least I try although I am disorganized and often forget to respond or do stuff I do manage to get my products shipped out and follow through even if it takes a while to do so in some cases. I have done several barters with many folks here on BYC and most times it has gone well. But 3 have not and what was supposed to be a way for both parties to save money has just turned into a loss of money for me. Not to mention time and for those of you who have received my eggs you know that a lot of time is spent packaging them up the way I do. ... For those I am actively in the middle of shipping an you are making please dont think this reffers to you at all, I know I have some active barters in the "works" its the ones that were completed on my end but not the other that I am poed about. Since so many went well and I got so many wonderful things that I myself could not make I am at a loss as to how to feel. I accept at times there will be some dishonest people or those that take advantage but 3 out of 9 people is not the best ratio. Since I know at least 2 of the 3 byc members are on a lot I am hoping that this (since my pm's don't seem to be working) will jump start them to do what is right and either send my goods or pay for the eggs they received. I guess my next step will be to leave feedback but with the 2 systems I wonder if it will even be seen Maybe I am just being a baby, but now I don't have a gift for (who ever the product as going to be for) and even less money to buy them something else or anything for that matter. In addition one of the members who burned me also burned another BYC member so I know I am not the only one, but the offender is not on BYC anymore so calling them out is rather pointless.
