    Actually got a message from him today:

    "sent the beers out last night, tracking number will be sent in the morning...sorry that this happened. enjoy the beer"

    For one, nice apology eh? Secondly, I assume I'll get stale ZD but whatever.... I forgot about this a while ago.

    Well hopefully he had the decency to hook you up with a crazy amount of extras for all the trouble.

    Dude, don't you love it when a bad trader gets mad at you for outing them on another thread they're in? It's a lot of fun for those of you who aren't vigilante trade police ;)

    Yes, received a box containing 2x Dreadnaught, a Live a Rich Life, and a FFF oyster stout. He also said another box containing some ZD would come at some point but haven't heard anything for a few weeks.

    o_O Seems like it has been progressively getting worse since the transition to the new interface. I just checked the main Iso:ft forums earlier today and half of the posts are from newer users, most as their first post on here.o_O
