    dirkdiggler's aliases

    There are good reasons why civilized societies assign 1 name to each individual. Imagine the chaos that would ensue if each of us were allowed to run around using lots of different names. Think about all the news stories you see where criminals/scammers have multiple aliases, and all their aliases are eventually exposed once the hunt is on for them.

    So, many of us (with our fingers on the pulse of the pwc world ) already know from experience that dirkdiggler has been using many different names/IDs/e-mails/aliases to hawk his stuff all over the forums, ebay, and craigslist. However, many others shopping for parts may not know and understand this. Shouldn't people actually know WHO it is they're buying/selling parts from/to - from the beginning to the end of the transaction? I know I want to know. And, why should someone be using aliases anyway? I can't think of one legitmate and ethical reason why multiple aliases should be tolerated. Maybe dirk can chime in and explain why his multiple aliases should be tolerated?


    Anyhow, for the time being, I think it's a good idea for us to start compiling and listing all of dirkdiggler's aliases, so more of us can know exactly who it is that's trying to sell us parts.

    Just list them here. If it's an e-mail address posted in his craigslist ads, just list it like this (superjetman@xxxxx.xxx) so we're not violating site policies by posting someone else's complete e-mail address.

    Here's a few I know of:

    booomdoger (one of his eBay IDs, but I've seen him use several others)
    mad max (I've gotten spam e-mails from that one)
    Joe Dirt (see this thread for more on that: http://www.pwctoday.com/f72/long-los...-253578-5.html)

    These are just a few I can recall off the top of my head. I know I've seen a good 5 or 10 others already. I've got to go look for some of the others.

    Have at it in the meantime...

    Thanks for the info. I was looking at an intermediate housing he was selling... and I thought it looked a little old and rusty to buy. You make me feel better about passing on it. now I can avoid him elsewhere.

    seriously, I wouldn't buy anything form that greaseball. he's just too damned underhanded with the way he goes about things, to trust.

    Thank you for the compliment. It means a lot to me. I know I've told more than a few people that I'm certainly no saint, but I really didn't start this thread for my own benefit. I truly don't have a problem with somebody trying to make a buck, but goddammit, at least be honest and upfront about what you're doing. This sport just doesn't need any more BS than it already has if we want it to grow. I know I personally want it to grow, and I'm betting most of us in here do as well, so we just gotta call out the BS when we see it...

    Re: dirkdiggler's aliases

    fox, one of the things that bothers me the most about the way he "deals", outside of his notorious reputation for slimeing people on ebay, is that when he posts something for sale, he posts very limited or absolutely no pictures at all, then if someone enquires about details, he will take it to pm, instead of publicly posting the details of what he's trying to "hawk"..lol that way if it's n00b he's trying to sell to, we can't all look at the pictures and advise toward or against if he's trying to sell trash. and a lot of things he sold have come up trash, with negative feedback threads that have been posted in his "honor".
