I saw those covers and they were nice. I would have jumped quick too. They were under-priced. That said, I clearly saw your "I'll take it" post. That right there was enough to tell me to back off and the deal was done. Second in line is fine, but a bidding war is not appropriate on this board. It's just not the the way to do things. Although, I do I have a little bit of a beef as to what is considered "contributing". I myself post for sale and want ads in the classifieds. Just because I may not post a huge number of one-liner replies in the message board part doesn't mean that you don't contribute. That attitude is junk in my book. I'm an alliance member, I pay to help support this board. I also help others get further with their projects by selling parts I don't need. They help me get further with my project by selling me parts that I need. In all honesty my opinion is that this type of contribution is just as important if not more than 90% of the tounge in cheek one-liner replies that are typically posted and apparently viewed as "contributions". All I'm saying is that contributions come in many forms and just because they may or may not be in the classifieds really is neither here nor there. If Ryan actually thought for a second that the classifieds did not contribute something to this site, they would be shut down in a second. In any event, I'm sorry yopu got screwed out of the valve covers. This morning I wished I would have been able to get a deal like you did, but this afternoon, I'm sorry to see it didn't work out.
