    This is pretty ridiculous. I posted a thread yesterday looking for a slickdeals poster. MediaMagic private messages me with his skype (attached image). We have a decent conversation. He seems legit. Should have been a red flag when he wanted payment before service. But I wanted to get my coupon out there so I didnt think much of it for $30. I posted Screenshots of the conversation. At the last of it he just blocked me. Pretty pathetic for $30. Let's get this guy blocked.

    MediaMagic logged on shortly and viewed this thread shortly after I approve it - and has decided not to respond.

    OP, pm me what you wanted the slickdeals post to say. If it's something I feel comfortable posting, I'll do it for you for free.

    Well, I know what it's like. I was looking for someone last year to post for me in the big coupon/deal forums. Couldn't find anyone to do it, so I joined up and became a member of the forums. I don't mind helping as long as I'm comfortable with the post.

    If I ever need a kidney, this will be my first place to ask!
    Joking aside, this forum is full with kind people that will help you if you are down. But we can sure be ruthless to people selling BS.

    LOL I was terrified that it would be drugs, porn, or something that would make me cringe, because every time I offer to help, something goes wrong. I was shocked when I saw that it was normal. I actually want to buy it.
