It's nice to see that you came here to be a member of RP to contribute to discussions and not just sell a piece of equipment. :rolleyes:
(Two posts to sell something and that is it. Very nice.)

175 for4 a real CERAMIC vest? are you sure it's yours?

There does come a story with which the low price comes from. I'd be happy to supply it to those who are interested, i just thought i would keep it from this thread as it does nothing for it. If your interested to know, email or pm me i'd be glad to inform you of how this is possible.
Otherwise, I'll continue to lurk as i've always done and now that i have registered, will show input as you suggest. Seems as though that is what is needed to become part of this websites community, which is understandable. I've never thought to have input on subjects that are put up in this forum, hence the reason. As mentioned above i tend to frequent other such forums which have plenty of drama. I appreciate the feedback...
Also, please read a little more careful. There is no mention of a vest for sale. Attention to detail...

You, good sir, with your supposed lurking are the equivalent of a door-to-door salesman. I, for one, find it hard to believe that a site that predominantly contains (by your own words) subjects for which you have never thought to have input would hold your attention and that you just happened to register to put this item for sale.
I would suspect that you came here for no other reason than to sell your plates and that your presence here will last as long as you have a chance of selling them on the site. You are right. This IS a community and the classifieds are for community members. I hope I am wrong, but your only posts have been to sell these plates.

Then into this community I shall make a name for myself by posting threads instead of the casual lurk. Had I known that such "internet bantering" would have consumed a for sale thread I never would have posted so close to my registering date. I see that there is high potential for this item to go no where, so i will reluctantly remove the item and begin to build a name for myself here in hopes to return the item to the for sale forum in the future. Thank you once again for the insight...

By all means, leave the plates up for sale.
However, in no way am I bantering. It just seems bad form. Surely you can understand where I am coming from. It would not be the first time that someone registered just to sell an item (as they did on several other LE/tactical forums) and had no interest in contributing to the site.
We are happy to have you here. If you look through the forum, you will note that participating members who post items for sale are received much more warmly. :)

I completely understand. I see how it could be misconstrued as bad form and I am more than happy to fix the problem.
