This page only came into existence in mid-2006, despite of numerous trades I had successfully completed over the years before that. Good news is that, though the world in general can't exactly be described as a nice place, the "tapetrading" world can, because it consists of an unbelievable amount of dedicated people whose degree of reliability keeps amazing me to this day. That is mainly because it's even higher than that of the people one is normally surround by in "real life", especially if you include those you considers to be friends.
I would therefore like to make it quite clear that this page initially came into existence because of a single individual that would be considered a bad trader but is mainly dedicated to (the protection) of those individuals who make life worthwhile by sharing what they like best: good music that makes them feel at home. Hey, sometimes music is the only constant thing we have in life while everything around us seems to fall apart in decay! And what could be better than something done for the sake of just that rather then the usual necessities of sheer survival.
BAD TRADERS :
20 Modena Dr.
Warwick, RI 02886
In October 2005 Ray (aka CDCollectr or Jazzpunk (on Dime) and me agreed on a multi DVD-R audio trade, my part of which I fulfilled in November of the same year. A few dozens of e-mails from my part, numerous idle promises from his part and more than half a year later he still can't be bothered with taking responsibility. My first trade with him a few years ago was OK, but now he just can't seem to get his life organized any longer. Sad. Very sad.
NOTE: Items arrived some time in August 2006 after rmany more e-mails, not far from one year after I sent mine.
AND ANOTHER ONE OF THE KIND :
CHRISTIAN SCHÄUFLE (CHRISTIAN SCHAEUFLE)
We figured out a trade in January 2009, my part of which I sent out out February 19th of the same year. Christian claims to have sent his bit out three times altogether, the last time in April 2009, but to this day (October 2009) I am waiting for it to arrive. Another trader that gives the community a bad name, and who should therefore be avoided.
