Hello all, I have not logged in to AI pretty much since this incident and have missed many messages, my apologies. I was outraged with this incident and abandoned the forums basically. It has come to my attention that one Dnick has looked into the matter himself and gotten my mags back for me. Ollie has since gotten ahold of and has been telling people I have sent him broken mags, which is funny considering he never stated that to begin with. When it comes down to it, the magazines were brand new when I sold them and I thought I would be a good guy and let him pay later so he can have them in time for an OP. I got suckered and when he got caught and confronted in real life, he made excuses that if were true, he would have stated from the get go. I am still angry that he would pull a trick like this over 2 magazines, but I let it go and so much time has passed I never thought I would see them again. But Dnick has gotten them from him and told him even more lies, and he hasn't got to inspect the box yet to see if the box even has my mags in it or what condition they are in, but I owe so much to this man who I have never met or talked to before. I am very grateful of him and anyone else, including Rob the awesome admin and creator of this site, for helping in this. Such a selfless effort really makes me have faith in the airsoft community even though time and time again, bad seeds pull things like this and theft happens very often. Thank you all and myself or Dnick will keep everyone posted after the box he retrieved is open and we get the status of the magazines. Thank you Rob for opening this after such a long time and sorry for my absence. Sorry for the edit, but I wanted to add something a fix a grammar error I caught. But the reason why i haven't been on this site since then is because of the way people have treated me since I've joined. As you can see further up in the post, people on this site are very condescending towards me even for making this post, and it turns out that I was actually correct in making this post and that even after all this time, I still do not have the magazines even when Ollie clearly stated "they have been shipped express" and the thread locked. It makes me sick how people acted towards me over this (I had quite a few messages at the time as well) and over some of the other posts and topics I created/ posted on. I know I hadn't played a game with a lot of you all because at the time I was relatively new to the sport, and I know being from Louisville I was a ways away from you all, but I've been out to plenty of games now and have plenty of experience, and I've met a ton of people from Indiana, Ohio, and my home state Kentucky who have been the most respectful people I have ever met. Now this should go without saying that this is not every member on the forum as there are some people, This Dnick guy included, who are awesome people and even go out of there way to help someone they've never even met simply because they've been wronged. But for the most part, I've had nothing but negative experiences here and instead of whining and complaining all over the forum, I just stopped using it. I stopped using the internet for airsoft as much as I could and just starting going out and playing as much as I could. And it was the best decision i ever made. I was ok the brink of dropping this sport, this love that I have, forever because of this incident and the way that people acted and treated me because of it, but I didn't I got off of here and met some great people and had some great times. The only reason I'm back and posting is because Dnick took such responsibility for this and was so selfless in acting to right something he knew he could help fix being friends with Ollie. I had to come back to the site (I forgot my login info actually so had to reset it and go through all that just to log back on) to make sure he got his recognition for what he has done and to show my gratitude towards the certain members that made this possible and held the right people accountable. You guys are the reason I still airsoft. But, when this is done. I will go back to not using this forum as it's already left a bad taste in my mouth. I was a new member and a relatively new airsofter with big aspirations and I read just about every thread ever created on this forum in my spare time because I was so excited for this sport, and I got to see so much of you guys on this site without even talking to a lot of you, and the attitudes given to me shocked me and was a true let down. Even after I had been ripped off and had property stolen from me, people were still downright disrespectful to me even though I felt like I had the right to try to get my stolen items back. At this point, I think it's safe for everyone to assume that Ollie is a liar and a thief. In the original post I was nothing but respectful and assumed no foul play, and it's pretty clear that I shipped him 2 magazines exactly as I described them: brand new in perfect condition. He told me they didn't fit and told me that HE SHIPPED THEM BACK. Then he disappeared. Then many many many months later, a friend of his confronts him in person and he starts shooting out excuses that they were broke, that he tried to ship them to me already, blah blah blah. None of that was brought up in the first place and he disappeared. I don't feel as if anyone owes me anything on those site, except for Ollie owing me these mags or my money. No one here even owes me respect for that matter. But I will not being using this site as a medium for my airsoft hobby anymore as I've received nothing but negativity from 90% of it's users. Again, I'm not whining or complaining, or even at this point, asking for things to change or got apologies or anything. I'm just informing all of why I was gone for so long and why I have returned, though it is only temporary. Thank you to everyone who helped me and supported me on this site, mainly Rob (HRTurner), who I've met at a few events at this point but never truly been introduced to and I know he won't remember me, Dnick who I've never talked to until yesterday but has done more for me then anyone on this site has before, Target Practice who sold me several items in the past at pretty low prices and have me advice on them and other things through PM's, and Joker who was my go to guy several times when I had airsoft related questions back when I used the forum. There were others too, but you guys in particular treated me with respect and helped me stay in the sport, and now I've got a lot of experience and time under my belt and have met some great men and women because of this. Thank you all, and if there is anything else to report on my behalf, I will, but if not, Dnick will. Until I see any of you in the field or have to jump back on here to update or respond to someone, this is Viper signing off.
