Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

Hi there,

Do you ever heard of Mathmos Bullseye glitter lamp?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MATHMOS-JET-LAVA-LAMP-RARE-BULLSEYE-GLITT...

As the seller is known to sell "unusual"  lamps (home made custom, listed as very rare from factory) I guess this is bullshit, but maybe I'm wrong?

Sooooo, you can start the shit ?, then when it gets addressed or replied to then you call that negativity and the other person is to blame and gets axed....lady, you have a problem !.....But if it makes you feel big and in control, go ahead and get me " axed "...will still consider Flooksta the victim, as he always has been with you people !.

OG has been just fine for years now. Seems like you're the problem and looking to start shit. This particular seller has been brought up many times before and the overall sentiment has been "proceed with caution". 

We don't "slag people off", we just have a low tolerance for people who come in here for the purpose of stirring the pot just to create drama. We've been problem-free for years now, so what's your angle here?

And yes, you're right - if your sole purpose is to come in here and just to F with people, yeah, you'll get axed. We don't need that kind of negativity and pointless trolling around here.

How would you know what they are/are not if you have never seen them....seems to me that OG has not changed at all....still got the crew who like to slag people off, I do wonder if you still get taken off if you reply to small minded peoples bullshit, especially if they are popular and every ones friend ?

I've always been curious about his lamps, too. I think they are custom, but who knows. I'd say ask questions before purchase, always! 

Let's see, you joined, oh, a few weeks ago, and your ONLY posts are stirring up drama on this thread. Is that why you joined? You come into a thread that's months old... for what purpose? It's pretty clear why you're here, honestly. And it's pretty obvious who started this flame war. 

Yeah, I have a problem. LOL Sure. 

As a moderator, it's my job to police threads and personal attacks. You're contributing nothing except rude comments and trolling. Unless you're Flooksta himself, what are you trying to accomplish here?

Give it a rest "gavin".  Yes, Flooksta gets bad press on the site, but that's life.  Go on Amazon and check the feedback for some of the most highly regarded and respected products in the world.  There will always be some who bash them.  The way to maturely handle it - reach out to other collectors and don't buy into the hype.  Flooksta lists some very intriguing lamps and I had pondered making a purchase (shipping fees were the big detractor).  The feedback I got from a fellow member was that Flooksta was AOK and he had acquired some epic lamps from Flooksta in the past.  Stated he never had a problem.  

Not sure what your end game here is "gavin" - I can only assume you are either Flooksta himself or a loyal supporter.  Your actions are not going to sway people to Flooksta's side, but rather the opposite.  You are making him look even worse to people (like myself) who may have been on the fence and were withholding judgment.  

And before we start having a Flooksta pity party, let's just consider this... http://oozinggoo.ning.com/forum/topics/og-suspensions

Seems to me that you simply have an over-sized chip on your shoulder.  Erin's response was beyond fair; she speculated that they may be customs, but admitted she was not sure.  She encouraged asking the seller directly.  What exactly is so objectionable about that?!?

Well Jim, how would you know about me, chips and shoulders ?...Having spoken to Rob ( Mr Cotrone ) was told that OG had changed, and was ok now !...seems that he was wrong, and that the old school "any response to critism " will still result in being axed...as the "lady " has already pointed out !...Seems to me that they are queuing up to have a pop at Rob ( Flooksta ), but you will obviously deny/poo poo that....do your worst Jimbo.

You're right gavin, I don't know you and can only judge you based upon the content of your posts.  That being said, you have been a complete and utter doosh all morning.  Rob Cotrone was actually the member I referred to who spoke highly of Flooksta, but to be honest, that's completely irrelevant to the topic at hand, and that topic is your attitude on the site.  You dredged up an over three month old post, so its obvious you came in with an agenda. 

You can think what you want about me and the site, but the fact of the matter is that Rob/Weebo was right... the site has changed for the better.  The great moderating team does not stifle criticism and debate as long as its stated maturely and stays on point.  I can tell your mind is made up so I won't bother debating you on this.  I have way better things to do.

For your review though - here is one example thead where members were not seeing eye to eye and one of the moderators weighed in and let the thread run its course. 

http://oozinggoo.ning.com/forum/topics/help-analoghaze-issue

Both members in disagreement are still members of the site.  Debate and criticism can be fine and well when its done in a well-mannered way.  The site can grow as a result.  You, sir, are far from well-mannered and you are adding absolutely nothing to the site.

Interesting. Rob said that "flooksta" had recently contacted him about re-joining the site. Isn't it possible that you and he are one in the same? If that's the case, why not clear your name instead of pretending to be someone else? 

And to be clear, you weren't criticizing, you were stirring up crap with your comments:

"Astralav is probably correct, especially the "LAV" bit, means lavatory right ?...WTF do you know about his lamps...ever seen any bought any ?"


And just to add my name to the hat, I ONCE asked eBay user Flooksta about a lamp and he went OFF on me/was very nasty and mean - that's my DIRECT interaction with him. There's also been a user here with that name in the past who left horribly nasty comments about me on the site. So yeah, not too fond of the guy. Who knows what I did to piss him off, but I think I've been more than kind in my comments here on the site about HIM.

Criticism is fine, but you're being a jerk. Goodbye.

Dude had an opportunity and completely screwed the pooch.  He could have used the site as a means to pre-hype lamps and provide transparency on any potential questions regarding the authenticity of what he planned to sell.  His loss.

Oh stop slagging him off. ;)
