    Are there supposed to be punctuaction marks somewhere in that sentence? Can someone translate it? I am not trying to be mean, I just want to know what was said

    I think he is referring to Zip-Locks sticky on posting Group Buys in the for sale section and I think the translation would go something like this: Someone joins for one week, has one post and is already setting up a group buy? That really made me squirm. Good call Zip-Lock.
    or at least that's what I got out of it...

    EDIT: Well I read it again and it might go a little something like this. HIT IT!!

    "One week"/"One post" members setting up group buys made me squirm. Good call Zip-Lock.

    How's that?

    Dear Mr Zip-Lock

    With reference to the recently posted policy regarding group buys:

    As stated in a thread authored by yourself and referenced by the below url:
    -http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=24303

    I wish to add my unqualified support and endorse the newly cast policy.

    It was with great concern that I read posts wherein those with but a weeks worth of membership accumulated or even worse but a tally of posts limited to single digits thence proceeded to organize a group purchase without any Dunn & Bradstreet, TRW or Equifax bonafides.

    It was then that I began to wiggle upon my buttocks in an uncomfortable manner wrought with concern for my fellow longstanding members. (Afore mentioned action not to be misconstrued ala Janet Jackson et al.)


    Three cheers and a "well done" to you Mr. Zip-Lock Sir!


    sheesh

    join group buys at your own risk. Just like Ebay--you might get screwed or you might get a great deal

    In this sort of situation I am usually tempted suffix
    " I suppose you wanted a dragon" which unfortunately
    is too obscure a reference for any but the "down-under" 'puter geek.

    methinks one has to be registered:

    I have every confidence that Zip-Lock easily decyphered the original succinct phrase.

    Zip-Lock probably did, but any old dumbo like me could go and read both Zipper Boy's stories and.....

    What's with all the zips anyway??
