Funny Craigslist story

So some guy on Craiglist keeps trying to sell a Jay Turser SG style guitar and his ad keeps getting flagged and he gets mad and types explative laced ads and those get flagged and so on. So I posted suggesting that maybe his stuff gets flagged because he calls the guitar an "SG Classic" which it obviously isnt because Gibson has the patent on the name SG Classic. He responds by sending me four of the angriest emails I ever got, and actually argued that Gibson does not hold any patent on the name SG, he then calls the guitar a Jay Turser JT45 but still insists its an SG. I was just trying to help the guy, not even being a dick for once and he flew off the handle, and still doesnt believe that only Gibson can legally call a guitar an SG. I think Im going to start flagging his posts now.

Oh yeah, he also made the mandatory "Hitler" reference about anyone who flags posts. Says its how Hitler got people to kill Jews by making them think like him or something. I can edit the emails and post them is anyone wants a good laugh

Re: Funny Craigslist story

I just wanna know what he would be like in person. A lot of people like to be "internet gangsters". I've never actually met anybody as rude as some of the people I've seen on the intertubes.

Nice story =]

Re: Funny Craigslist story

Well, I woke up this morning to 9 more emails from him. He now mentions that he is in fact a bad motherfxxker who is only afraid of bullets. Not sure what that has to do with his guitar technically not being an SG. Oh yeah, Im still Hitler.

Re: Funny Craigslist story

Like I said, I understand why the guy is calling it an SG, I was just offering a suggestion of why his ad gets flagged all the time.

Re: Funny Craigslist story

new one

You are a c*nt , you have to be Women are right always that's why we allow makeup , That guitar has not been played or registered it has the plastic on the guard the hang tags Box etc and a forensic lab will attest to that ! ! Did you get your USPTO experience from God or Kmart ! Gibson does not own the shape of an SG Or the name ! SG Les Paul is a trademark Explorer is NOT the shape of some of the 1958 guitars is!GIBSON IS TRADEMARK AND COPTRIGHTED Leo Fender Sued and lost over the firebird and thunderbird on his patent of the 6 on a side tuners Interesting Rickenbacker only has 4 shapes copyrighted the shape of the logo the crescent triangle !The paddle head and the wave , and the only body shape is the 600 series wave ! They own 8 color names Fireglo jetglo etc. The act that protects intellectual property cover items MADE IN USA there is a very grey area as to Chinese intent ! The head stock shape is a copyright on a Gibson ! So give me and your law vigilantes a break ! SUE ME <REPORTME FOR VIOLATION OF HTE LANHAM ACT OF GET OFF THE ****ING PHONE ! You may be talking to an attorney in YOUR defense of violating my rights of free speech , THAT INCLUDES WRITING !

It's important to note that all I am changing is a letter in the banned words, all typos, spelling errors, and capitalization is from the guy.
He also ran an ad on Craigslist calling me (well my junk email acct name) an a**hole and going off on a tangent for a thread that I didnt even start about him and his guitar. This guy's a riot

Re: Funny Craigslist story

Wow. People like that should be dragged out into the street and beaten because obviously they never had any sense beat into them. Jay Turser guitars are some of the cheapest guitars I have ever seen and I don't think I'd ever get one.

Re: Funny Craigslist story

I wouldnt buy one either, I just cant get over how nuts the guy is going. I was just offering a possible suggestion as to why his ad was gtting flagged. Personally it bothers me when Im looking for something specific and there are misleading ad titles. If I want an SG I want an SG, not a copy, but Im not going to flag the guy over. Some other people might though. Now Im too addicted to his responses to let it go. This can probably go on for months, or until I'm working again.
