    I don't what's going on, but it feels like I've been swarmed with jerk-offs lately, both on my local Armslist (which I've long been accustomed to) and even here on the ODT (which,thankfully, is not typical).
    I've had several guys start a dialogue with me, and we'd be messaging, and then they just disappear, without a word of explanation, and it's really been chapping my ass !! (this is the sub-forum for "rants", so, well, I'm ranting !!!! :mmph: ).
    As I alluded to above, Armslist has long been populated by inconsiderate, unreliable jerks. It wasn't always that way, but I take that as a given these days.
    But the ODT has always been the opposite of that. Then this last week or so, on top of a couple Armslist run-arounds, I've had at least a couple guys here on the ODT go radio-silent and just leave me hanging, and repeatedly checking for messages that never materialize.
    Is there something in the water up there ?? :becky:

    It's nearly Christmas and guys want stuff but just can't justify it to their wives.

    No, that would be called a "no show". As I stated clearly in the OP, we were just messaging back and forth. Try and keep up,bro ! :becky:


    That I can understand, my complaint is about the fact that they can't be bothered to show some common courtesy, and send a quick message letting me know they were no longer interested.

    Oh yeah, no worries, I'm not crying myself to sleep over it or anything, I'm just killing time, sitting here drinking my morning coffee, and thought I'd get my rant on :becky:, ( while I wait for yet another Armslister to get back in touch with me, on a deal that should've easily been closed yesterday !!!! )

    Never happened before text and email went mainstream.
    Part of our modern society now.

    Mark, sorry this has happened to you. If every armslister and ODT member was of your caliber it’d be great. Hang in there my friend.
