in England we grew up loving American cowboy movies and the hero was always the same: quiet, cool and strong. to an outsider it seems this guy is dead and the cunt that owns the town and is always looking for more is the new America
tourism will always remain in the back seat. the commercialization of space has been about serving the planet as a whole with communications, its brought up the un-cabled world just like mobile phones have brought up the last mile. there is huge potential in energy production and distribution coming next.
Traveling Mars is also not a point and shoot mission. You have to coordinate launches with the alignment of the planets' orbits to travel the shortest distance and not fly past the sun. This also requires a stay on Mars as you wait for safe realignment after landing. Current technology estimates a 21 month round-trip given a ~3 month stay on Mars. Money is not the biggest hurdle.
My postman is obviously a stoner, just the way he carries the back all slung back on his shoulder gives it away but he also looks like Wayne (or Garth I can't remember which one is which). I keep thinking I should offer him a bowl of the good shit but he delivers so much weed to me I think I'd be putting him in a bad position.
We were hoping that we could start 2022 with some real positivity because that's what we are about. Unfortunately, due to ongoing troll attacks, we no longer sell 7g items as that is predominantly where the problems start. It's a shame that we have to take this approach, but it is necessary to protect our reputation. We are getting 2-10 because of a mistake(on that day, we dealt with over 72 orders!) even though the customer received their item a 4-10 because they are saying too many stalks etc... This is bullshit as the customer can message, and we will always resolve it.
Not going to be held back anymore by malicious spiteful behaviour, we will be winding this down if this continues and will look for other platforms where vendors don't have to deal with the tiny toxic minority. I gave up my Xmas this year and didn't spend it with my loved ones so I could focus on serving the LB community and this is the thanks I get?? enough is a fucking enough!
Ps, any Vendors with good standing plz inbox and we will happily share our detailed lists of problematic buyers ( will be first digit of post code and enough details to spot these fuck sticks)
I’ve said it before but I think you are being too sensitive. Your track record and overall rating is fantastic. 10/10 reviews all the time become pretty meaningless but if someone calls a score as they see it they are condemned as a troll by you. Should you have to deal with the occasional poor review amongst all the applause? - well kind of yeah.
If it’s a sustained personal attack (as we see too often) that’s totally different, but someone dropping you some points on the review section together with an explanation is just an opinion they are entitled to.
Yes it would be nice to sort it out via DM but you are happy for all the good comments to be public, so it goes with the territory.
Well said polly, all the buyers can see when a low score drops amongst a load of high ones that it’s either an error or an unfair customer or troll, those reviews don’t often get a second glance from buyers. However if you create a platform where people can only love your products and not review as they see fit the reviews become meaningless. Everyone is entitled to there own opinion even if you don’t agree with it. And I’m sure you’ve been in a situation where someone has some banging weed but one guy doesn’t like the flavour or just doesn’t rate it. Cannabis and all its flavours smells and effects can be very subjective and it’s ok if someone doesn’t like it.
Just don’t take it personally if someone doesn’t, and an honest review can’t be sorted out through a dm by giving them more weed or different weed because that’s not what the other customers are getting so again the review becomes a lie.
I’m also guessing your keeping your customers information as your happy to share with other vendors which is a massive red flag against you as a vendor.
Yeah the keeping of clients details is a massive no no and GT have straight up admitted to it in this thread.
Now they did say something along the lines of "Ps, any Vendors with good standing plz inbox and we will happily share our detailed lists of problematic buyers ( will be first digit of post code and enough details to spot these fuck sticks)"
Now obviously I thought the vendor is only keeping the details of the troublesome accounts, they wouldn't keep all of them surely. Then I thought... I wonder how they know if an account will be troublesome, LB (correct me if I'm wrong) only keeps address details for 2 days from when vendors mark as sent
So we can only conclude that GT keeps all the addresses until they decide if an account is troublesome or not? Do they after a positive review open the ledger and cross off the reviews details while placing a shiney gold star next to them, that's what i have decided to go with as my mental image for this process at least.
Anyhow unless your secretly father Christmas stop keeping a naughty list and for fucks sake stop offering to share it ☁️🐰☁️
I admit to not having bought from GT but there are now three reasons why I never will: 1. If I review it with less than 10/10 I will be a “toxic troll” 2. If I take it up via DM I’ll be showered with abuse. 3. He’ll be storing my address for nefarious purposes.
This all feels like the behaviour of a certain (and many times banned) Sticky Fingers. How weird is that? 🤔
If that was the case yes but it’s not just 2 reviews it’s constant these are just the recent ones and enough is enough. It’s my livelihood and I have the right to defend it i am speaking up about the harsh treatment towards Vendors on here. It’s absolutely disgusting the way some of you lot speak and gang up on here you are just like a pack of hyenas. Some of you disguise it very well but in my world it’s called bullying. And it’s always the usual suspects
Honestly you moan about the way people speak to you but from what I’ve seen of you in these threads I’m not surprised your customers get pissed off. If every time one of your customers has an issue there met with this appalling customer service it’s no wonder your reviews are so spikey. You moan about bullying yet threaten customers in public sounds like you want to have your cake and eat it
You wouldn’t even make first base due to your track record with 2 disputes we would automatically cancel your order so no good even trying to buy from us unless you do it anonymously you would be turned away at the front door 😂
Agreed and he is already threatening customers by using there personal information to try and stop them being able to purchase by sharing with other vendors. I wonder what else he will be willing to do with it. Proceed with caution I get bad vibes from this vendor
The gold star analogy made me laugh however I imagine the process to involve crayons
Although I do not agree with storing customer details after the transaction is completed, other vendors definitely do this. Nobody is questioning it when it benefits them...like TGT loyalty scheme where they are clearly keeping a record of who buys what and how much for the scheme to work. DIUK have also talked of sharing "black lists" of members to other vendors. This isn't an isolated case im afraid. Pretty sure it's against the T&Cs regardless.
This is very true a bonus scheme is something you enrol in compared to someone collecting data for no good reason I can think of. And to be fair to vendors like tgt there reviews and sales speak for them self.
This is a really good point and something people should consider when using the bonus schemes. Signing up to a scheme which encourages vendors to keep sensitive info for a free eighth probably isn’t the best idea. Even if the intention behind it is good.
Yes that’s correct all details are saved to the RM platform as that’s the only way that we can book postage.it’s not our platform that automatically saves details it’s RM so blame them. We only cross over the details when we come across nasty little trollls and then we highlight the dodgy account ifor future reference all other orders are left as they have not acted usually so they never get cross referenced only the nasty troll accounts.
Ps if any vendors with good standing would like to share notes on these Trolls please inbox us
The thing is though royal mail doesn’t hold the lb account name info for you to then be able to go on the Royal Mail site and then cross reference. The only way the system works that you’ve just described is if you also keep a record including the lb user name name as well as an address against it.
Not correct I shred everything the address stays on system for 24 hrs then auto deletes my hard copies are kept until orders are received. Also discuss amongst yourselves I am busy doing Vendor stuff. This is my last comment.
See you said earlier the details are only saved on royal mails system and it’s not your fault they save our details. But now your saying you do keep hard copy’s, the only way you would know items have been delivered is if a customer tells you or you check the tracking I believe this would take to much time on a daily basis for you to track 70 orders a day. So you are keeping hard copy records for longer than you say. I call bullshit and how many times are you going to edit your old posts to reflect the current lie your weaving. Go on keep on digging
hes the biggest bullshit artist on here. claims he sells 70+ items a day but just looked at his revews and the most he has in 1 day is less than 15.. so only 15 out of 70 people review on here do they??? utter bullshit I wouldnt trust this guy with the remote control to my telly least of all my address. fuck that
I have to agree because prior to this i was under the impression that You had a solid reputation and when ive dealt with You its been Fine. I think the whole data collection thing on LB is pretty obvious with most vendors whether they say they do or not and what they do with it. Generally in business You cant please everyone...there is no such thing as 100% of people all being satisfied.
I am confused though....does this mean a lot of people bought q's and complained because im assuming that's a hell of a lot of q's for this post 🤷🏻♂️.
You have a solid score on here so wouldn't worry too much especially if it is Gelato 👌🏼🖖🏼
I haven’t been taking much notice of it but when I was notified by another vendor recently with one of the best standing on LB that a certain customer/troll resides in this area were as Anon1385 has brought themselves into this post I then remembered from my previous discussion with said vendor and my ears pricked so I then go on guard mode level red if you like as it then happened the next day. So yes as a vendor who makes there living I have to take precautions so notified The wall to explain.
I'm only commenting on this for clarity, as saying you recieved a 2/10 for simply forgetting a molar bag is not true. It was your attitude in the messages that dropped it to a 2, it was 5/10 initially.
After posting my personal opinion on the review, here's the messages that followed.
"Green tech: 01 Jan 14:10 UTC Hi,
It was human error and I messaged you back to resolve it and you then edit your (review) today?
What can I do to fix this slight error
Me: 01 Jan 15:23 UTC Hello,
Just a very poor service all around to be honest. How can you resolve the error? It's already happened, I appreciate it was a mistake, but It's happened and luckily nothing came of it this time. That's that.
The bud was poor for the price you are charging in my opinion, dry, no smell, looked nothing like the pictures, pop corn buds at best. I can see you have now updated the listing to say they are pop corn buds, but when I ordered, this message was not there, but I received popcorn buds.
Your quality just isn't there and I posted an honest review to reflect this, not sure what you want me to do? I don't think it's worth the price and my review reflected that.
Greentech: 01 Jan 16:50 UTC Vendors are charging $150 upwards for Gelato on here for a Q and even higher. I am sorry Mc Krankie spoiled your NYE but ok don’t take it out on my business. It’s sent in vac and then a box with a Jiffy bag plus Amazon like labels what are you talking about??
Me: 01 Jan 18:21 UTC No worries mate, all the best with your business 👍
Greentech: 01 Jan 20:32 UTC Enjoy Mc Krankie lol
Greentech: 01 Jan 23:44 UTC You are a sad individual I fell sorry for you. Happy new year 🥳
Greentech: 02 Jan 07:55 UTC Your details have been given to the other vendors and they have been warned not to deal with you. 2022 is about harmony not hatred you will learn the hard way now. Good luck buying on here bud 😉
Me: 02 Jan 13:00 UTC No worries, thanks for the heads up. Happy new year"
Once you have placed an order make sure you use you first initial and full surname only.
I will also like to share a story to you all (quickly).
A guy placed an order and when it arrived there was a couple of ounces, (he ordered a q) once he realised this, he contacted the vendor and sent it back. The order never reached the vendor but buyer had full proof of postage and trouble ensued. A lot happened between then and a raid by the guarda, nothing was found except for a grinder but no charges were pressed against the buyer. Turned out the buyer hadn’t packaged the product properly and it was quickly intercepted.
My point is this, you’re dealing in the black market (whether you’re a buyer or a vendor) and many risks are associated with doing so, even if it’s just weed, it’s still illegal and unregulated by any professional body so it’s the Wild West basically and I hate to say it but we’re criminals (I love you all) no matter how you justify your consumption it’s still illegal.
Sorry for the rant but I feel it should be vendors and buyers of cannabis products unite and take the fight to the people who are making us criminals.
Honestly I don't know if I'm more disappointed in GT's responses or the fact the account didn't call themselves Mc Krankie to post this *I know the accounts older now I just didn't when reading the post
Wow that’s really poor from the vendor. You could have had a seized pack and his response is to try and get vendors to stop selling to you. He asks people to dm him to sort out problems but looking at that conversation thread you will be wasting your time trying to have a sensible conversation with him. What a plonker
Look at the dates stop telling porkpies your nose is getting. Bigger Pinochle : Greentech9.6/10 to Anon1385 31 Dec 15:33 UTC Hi Anon1385, That would of been a mistake our end as we use a Mylar bag aswell. Very sorry about that and can either refund you the $6 or offer you a G extra on any future order with extra stealth included. And thanks for bringing this to my attention human error happens from time time. Please let me know what suits you best.
Happy New Year GT from Anon1385 31 Dec 12:18 UTC I paid for extra stealth
At the end of the day GT your running a business providing a service to customers if there not happy there going to tell you. All vendors get bad reviews you can’t please everyone in this world. Been doing this shit for over 10 years and I can tell you that weed customers are very picky because there’s so much choice available (especially that we are selling online) so don’t take the comments to heart people pay money for a service if they feel like there not getting it then they have the right to complain. Not everyone will like all the products you sell it’s normal don’t take it personal just try to resolve it and move on. By the looks of it your doing very well anyway keep your head up mate and wish more blessings for you in the new year :)
Looking at anons page they seem to be an active member of the community. Doesn’t look like a troll account to me. The account is only a year old so hasn’t been operating for a serious amount of time and I’m guessing this was his first and last purchase from you so where’s the info coming from.
You should be praised, please! What for insulting and threatening someone. I don’t know what walk of life you come from but generally people don’t receive praise or thanks for insults and threats
I wouldn't think too much of it. Some come online to buy their weed and when they are met with higher than street prices, they expect higher then street quality. Which isnt bad like it used to be. So i can understand the feeling of being ripped off...even if they were not. Thats just the nature of the beast when you cant hold and smell what you are about to buy before the money is exchanged. Ive certainly had bud from many LB vendors that was not to standard. Sometimes i write about it. Sometimes i scratch it off as a lesson learned. The review system isnt there to knock vendors down, its to share personal experiences with other buyers.
I haven't looked, but you may have hyped the bud a bit too much?? I've seen that happen here, too. Vendors screaming that this is THE strain and everyone will love it, when it's not top shelf. Common business tactic...but weed smokers know what they want and if its not as described it should be brought to the attention of others imo. A lot of money gets banded about on here.
Im sure you are doing just fine on LB with a solid 9.6 overall. I agree with Polly though. Less sensitivity probably wouldn't go a miss
Not sure why you take it so personally, clearly there was an issue and the person has tried to message you to resolve it. You then attacked them? Have you read your own messages above? Do you think that's ok? Clearly got issues.
Ohh by mentioning Mc Krankie 😂 please read the message from the top and stop playing with the narrative. I asked what can we do to fix the issue the buyer never responded till after they posted the score and when we tried to make light of it by referencing Mc Krankie they then took offence and lowered the score from a 4-10 to a 2-10.
This took place on New years day a great way to start 2022 !
Yeah that’s great customer service when a customer has a problem turn it into a joke.
You’ve not only insulted them by name calling but you’ve also threatened them by offering to hand out there sensitive information.
And you ask how you’ve attacked them.
At the end of the day it’s not the customers fault you made a mistake and he didn’t go public with this you did. If you could just be the bigger man own your mistakes and move forward rather than be childish you could of had a much better resolution to this.
I wouldn't let it get to ya GT your a top vendor with top product your going to get the odd bad review every vendor has the odd bad review, I look out for the good reviews which you rightly have, everyone has different taste so don't beat yourself up over it.
The gelato is only thing u have bad reviews on, maybe it is the gelato not the people. All the 10 stars are probs from folk that have no clue, the real smokers think it’s not up to standard. They are allowed an opinion. Take a hit on the gelato and lower the price or les hype since had more than one complaint. Or just stop whining and live with the odd bad review. If I only seen 10/10 reviews I wouldn’t buy as worried all fake. Plus the Krankie thing is childish. Think you need to grow up a little infact. Some would say you sell drugs online as your scared to do it in the streets. Don’t put down all lb users by saying we scared that’s why we buy on here. It’s for choice I buy weed of the street but buy concentrate and edibles on here. I was gonna order some of the kritikal lemon hash - had it in my cart until I seen this. The guy paid for extra stealth you made the mistake. Expect a bad review for making a mistake. Say sorry not start slagging him off. Imo
Exactly that mate, the product isn't worth the price IN MY OPINION. I smoke 2g + per day, and have smoked for years, I'd like to think I have a decent understanding on the quality of weed. If other people love it then that great, let them continue buying it. I'm not sure why the seller felt he needed to become rude to me because I wrote my own review.
It was also sold as the "Rolls Royce" of weed, the pictures looked nothing like it, and the description oversold it too, compared to what was sent to me. I've had GG hash from GT which was great, matched the description and was well.priced, I reviewed that 10/10. I was planning to place another order soon, but I've now gone with a different vendor.
to Anon1385 31 Dec 15:33 UTC Hi Anon1385, That would of been a mistake our end as we use a Mylar bag aswell.

Happy New Year GT from Anon1385 31 Dec 12:18 UTC I paid for extra stealth and it turned up in a single vaccum sealed bag in a cardboard box?! Crazy, most sellers have better stealth for free, yet I paid $6 for what? I'd dread to see how it would arrive without me paying for extra stealth. Very disappointed and I've not even tried the product yet. Just can't believe such lack of attention was paid to the stealth. If that single vaccum failed the whole parcel would STINK
Once again GT I'm not sure that posting that is gonna do for you what you expect 🤷🏻
As for calling the people in this thread bullies, we didn't start this thread and are only responding to what you have posted. Maybe just maybe it wasn't the best post to lead with for a good start to the new year
I think there has always been feudalism in one form or another. There is always a class that ultimately owns everything because they can confiscate it, grant it a "title" or tax it. This premise always leads to same outcome it's just a matter of how greedy or insane the current landlord is.
probably starting from the neolithic era yes with the only exception of the 20th century, the only period of history where people got a bit of control of the power. Now is going to be lost for decades to come.
We need to look on the bright side, we are actually free serfs. We are free to seek a new master and we can seek redress in the crown courts, unfree serfs couldn't. However if we hadn't spent so much bit coin here we might actually be free with the value of it now.
Fascinating. Bleak. truly people have been brainwashed by the media and now vote with their wallets. Far more regulation required at the top end, we cant stop the progress, and in many ways it serves us well. Democracy can still win the day, and we can unite for the good of all people. Education is the key, and a few good humans can change the world. It cant be allowed that rampant free market capitalism destroys us. Roll on technical singularity, according to Moores law would be around 2042 but i believe the theory is faultering (Moores law) so might take a bit longer. Technological growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in unforeseeable changes to human civilization. We have just leisure time so we study philosophy and all becone enlightened beings living in a tech utopia. Peace
I see examples of this not just on the internet but in all industries. Walk down most high streets here in the UK and they now pretty much all look identical the same shops, coffee shops and chain restaurants with very few independent offerings. The cost of rent, business rates and all the red tape make it pretty much impossible nowadays for small independents to even start up.
Watching a show about fisherman on the BBC painted a picture of the EU quota system they must use and how the industry is dominated by money and huge boats and how these owners buy up small fishing boats and take the quotas these boats have to use on the mega trawlers.
The car industry seems totally monopolised now and we actually get very little choice - notice how the different makers share chassis and engines and the only real difference you get is the interior and badge. Everything else is pretty much controlled by rules and regulations.
It is obvious that these big players of industry are in cahoots with the those that set the rules and regulations as we saw with the emissions scandal with VW and EU collaboration.
Covid and lockdowns have exacerbated the situation as many small business owners left without any financial supports have gone to the wall while government loans to the huge corporations sit unused in their bank accounts.
I'm deep into marketing and advertising. I have first hand experience with promoting links and are you using bitly also to make extra income for the clicks? Hit my inbox up and I can get these done for you and do business.
local newspapers are invariably run by larger media outfits- certainly in this country you will find them pushing the same pro-business and anti- people agenda, while pushing for harder punishment for poor criminals by hyper vilification, and a justification for the crimes of the rich, and a nice side order of celebrity worship- they imply locality but are run by the same wankers that get their dirty hands onto everything. I think local newspapers are probably reflective of how corporatised and then depleted many local town are in the North of England- since Thatcher a few folk were sble to buy their social housing and the rest of the working class were screwed over- it’s been a downward spiral since then, and the local newspapers have become a casualty along the way.
Both the left and the right have really good independent news outlets that put mainstream news to shame……shame
The fact that LB is on Google (rather than lurking on the DW) and has been for many years suggests that for buyers this is a very low risk environment. There is no Cyber Squad (Personal Use By Post Division) monitoring the odd Henry you buy on here and preparing to swoop 😵💫 Some people still prefer VPN’s & instant history deletion (Firefox Focus does that) which is fine- personally I give it the same level of concern as the Plod do, i.e. nada 👍😏
Nah no need to bother with that or a VPN unless you are using a public network,i use Edge and i am logged in but you really only need a browser that your btc wallet works on so you can have LB and it open paged for buying. As pollypuff20 said old bill are not interested and besides somebody has got to keep RM in business lol
