Re: PAGE TWO

Okay kids, a tête-à-tête is supposed to be private, and the running public attacks are getting really old, especially in threads that are designed to be ANONYMOUS commentary. I'm busy, and I'm going to be annoyed if I have to spend hours cleaning up the board.

Thank you for understanding.

If a PM is still in your outbox it means the recipient hasn't looked at it yet. Once they open it, the PM moves to "sent messages". It's an easy way to know if your message has been read or not.

Scams can go both ways, but it's rare. Go with your gut - if you don't feel safe doing it, don't. There are enough people looking for tickets that you can arrange a sale you can be comfortable with.

Playa foot is not necessarily due to the alkalinity of the Playa. That is a bit of Playa Chicken pseudoscience. The PH is like that of soap. Playa is a desiccant.
