u need to shut up i can ask people to look at my books and i am not beggin i am doing what all are doing on here got it do not pm me again

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just for the record I never EVER sent this person a PM, but I think she could be a little nicer!!!

I am new here and I can read, I can see you begging people to look at your books so you can get credits, but you only had 5 books listed for the longest time and now you are up to seven....   I wasn't trying to be ignorant to anyone I was just commenting on your style of  "getting attention"....   AND one more thing... do you know what PM means?   Because posting on these threads is NOT* PM-ing...

Oh good Lord! *rolls eyes*

I don't believe in dog-piling, but can I give you a little advice tammie34 from one newbie to another?

Maybe it's not a good idea to make deals until you have more books.  Don't get me wrong, I think Karen shouldn't have been rude (it was uncalled for), but tammie34, you were no better in your PM to her. 

In the future, it would be a good idea to make deals and ask people to look at your shelf when you have more to offer. That way, your deals will be much more appealing. :-)

How about if your not interested, you don't make any comments? That would solve this.

I hardly think giving friendly advice about posting future deals is a bad thing.  Maybe she didn't understand how the bazaar works; it can be confusing to newcomers at first.

I also don't feel my mini-lecture or calling people out for rudeness was also a bad thing.  If nothing else, maybe it can put it to a stop between Tammie and Karen, or at the very least, they can confine their conflicts to PM's.

ETA:  The "good Lord" comment is probably uncalled for. It was directed at the pettiness I'm seeing between Tammie and Karen. Not my fight; I'm simply opining like everyone else on this board.

I wasn't being rude period, at least I didnt mean it in a rude way....   did you NOT read the whole post?

LOLOLOLOLOL   mean I am laughing   :)   means smiling

Then the message I received from Tammie was VERY rude and uncalled for!!!

I never ever sent her a "PM", I dont know her and dont want to know her, and I am not the ONLY

person she sent nasty messages to!!!

Jeeze give me a break I was only laughing at the desperate way she kept asking people to look at her books and then only to find a FEW listed...   I thought it was funny!

Yes, I did read your whole post, and it did come across rude. But, this is a text-based medium where we can't always see sarcasm, jokes or good intentions unless we know the person well, so misunderstandings can and do occur.

If she's sending nasty PM's to everyone, and yeah I'll probably get one too for my comments, then PBS should deal with her.

ETA:  You were right in calling her out on her PM.  The quote from your post below is what I considered rude, Karen:

Look you crack me up, sitting here begging people to look at your books and you had only 5 listed for a long time and now you are up to 7...

I have nothing more to say about this, and I'm not going to get dragged into some petty fight.  This is one of those times when I typed without thinking, and although I've seen more pettiness than I want to on the board in general, I usually keep silent.  This will be one of those times.

See you totally missed it (sorry)   "you are crack me up" meaning I was laughing

I honestly was not being rude and I am sorry you took it that way!  

When I saw her repeated posts I thought she had tons of books trying to get rid of some you know but when I looked there was 5, I was cracking up thinking  JEEZE what would she do if she had all my books, it just hit me FUNNY and I was trying to be funny back but you took it the wrong way.   

 

Have a nice day :)   I will try not to be funny any more on these threads :)

You can be as funny as you like wherever you like.  No need to stop because someone misunderstood you. :-)

I am sorry for reading your post wrong, and that's on me.  It's not the first time I've misunderstood something lately.

Tammie, just in case you did not know, PBS rules are that you can only start one new thread a day and only bump once... just want to let you know b/c there are folks out there that'll make a complaint to PBS about it. I got in trouble once b/c I posted more then one thread in a day one time and got a warning about it... I just don't want to see that happen to you!
