I received a private message from a fellow member here just an hour ago.

In it, well, I'll quote part of it:

"Read your ads. Nice lenses. It seems your brand new on the forum.
Just my opinion, any ad that even remotely smells of craigslist is often ignored. I see it time and time again. Your ad will probably not garner much if any interest because of its brevity, your newness and the tone of it(24-70mm). I mean no disrespect to you, but if your lens is great, the price is fair and people feel like they can trust you, it'll sell quickly. People look to see if you have any interest in the forum other just selling."

I have been a Silver member for 4 years (approx). I've lurked here mostly but, read everything and even have a Nikonians hat! When I renewed my membership recently, I inadvertantly changed my user name to "gpfahey" instead of my usual "gfahey". I have bought and sold here. I don't know how to search for those transactions but, I am being truthful.

I'm 56 years old and have a wife and 3 kids. It's been a tough year. Very tough. My usual gig of being a house photographer at a live music event venue was terminated and I can't make a penny with my photography. I never did finish my site but, take a look here:

I had to make the tough decision to sell all my gear. Believe me, it's heartbreaking for me to do this. This was to be my "new career" but, things never did pan out.

I had no idea my ads would be construed as Craigslist-like in nature. That makes me cringe. I made it clear for people to contact me with any questions. I have a phone.I have email. I am real.

I've also got a D700, D300, Domke bag, 2 monopods, a tripod, CF cards, battery grips, card readers, Lowe packs, straps, a LOT more gear. All my gear is well taken care of and top of the line. Most is hardly used. My prices seem to be fair as I have looked at what others are selling them for.

So, I felt the need to address this. Hey, maybe a moderator here could verify my membership and past transactions? Either way, I apologize for my ads and the fact that maybe I appear as "new" here by virtue of my silence.

Sincerely,

Greg
