    Recently did a trade by way of muel, and some pretty heavy hitters were involved. I put up a Bourbon Vanilla Dark Lord for CW 15, BCBS Vanilla, and 07-12 BCBS vertical. The muel met with the guy and he said he had forgotten the '10 and that his buddy would get him the '07 in about a week (This all took place at CW anniversary party). Now I can't even get the guy to inbox me. What should I do? (Also as an extra I threw in a BBL 4th Dimentia, which I felt was generous)

    This is why trading scares me.

    You usually post about the guy first, so other people can see how you traded 'heavy hitters' with someone who had one or all of these red-flags:

    Drug References in username
    Join Date
    Lack of references
    Spotty communication
    Poor forum posting


    Etc. etc.

    Throw the name out there, beers usually follow pretty quickly with an explanation / excuses if you are going to get your beers at all.

    Wasn't the CW release last weekend? I wouldn't freak out just yet if you got the majority of the trade. Cheers!

    I think Mike has it right. He has numerous trading references and yes I received the 15, vanilla, and remaining bcbs beers. I don't want to mention names just yet, since he may just be swamped with work and family. I just wish he'd take the minute it takes to tell me so.

    Fuck I was hoping we had someone to crucify again (actually I don't, but this is like a one tug reach around at this point).

    He got back to me. No blood will be spilled in the name of beer today. My apologies.
