    you have no idea, here comes the rant.............
    BA is a typical community. You have your leader(s), you have your followers, and you have your idiots. The job of the followers is to follow, the job of the leaders is to lead, and the job of the idiots is to learn. You as a leader, must lead, show the right way to (pack a box, complete a trade, run a BIF), you as a follower must follow, (learn from others, grow with the others, and want to become better) you as idiots, just need to lower your idiocy (with that involves not putting on your grand daddy's pants, but wear your own, don't jump in to whale trades when your not quite sure what made that whale Moby. Beer is more than beer, it is heart and soul and sweat and tears. If you don't know one of those 4 of the beer, than don't go hunting for that beer, find a good trading partner, blow away his/her mind in what you send and then you can graduate to the next level).
    This is by far a soap box tyrade. It's one man's opinion that I hope some people respect. So teachers, go teach, followers, go follow, and you idiots, learn before you yearn. It's better to swim when you can, than drown just because.

    I definitely read that as "stop abusing eclipses." And I didn't even have a beer tonight! Time for bed, I guess...

    Friendly advice - don't message things like

    " But to be truthful I have people beating you out in beer for beer amount right now " if you expect people to want to trade with you... It makes it seem like you're auctioning off your beer

    Cheers

    Eh? We've all have been new at some point. In a lot of people's minds I'm probably still pretty new to all this. When I first started trading I was definitely trying to maximize the value of my beers and offering ridiculous things for Pliny in return ( glad I figured it out quicker than themind though). Like I said, just some friendly advice; take it or leave it
