    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Its rare for me to post a link to another site but I was just emailed this is and found the "pack attack" interesting to say the least.

    The thread is 40 odd pages long, you only have to read the first couple to get an idea of whats going on.

    The funniest quote I can grab from the thread is #8
    "I am not sure how your thread is gonna turn out..."

    I wonder if NSX_NICK likes coffee?

    Yes, like a car crash it gets ugly and fairly sad on some random click views I had deeper in the thread. Mention of actual harassment at his house and a "cease and desist" type letter from his lady shows just what impact this can have on real, human, innocent people.

    If only he declared his intentions when he was “busted” on page 1 instead of lying and denying then the wolf pack would have had nothing to feed on.

    I think the moral of the story is:
    Although you feel protected behind a keyboard you really should behave and treat people with the respect and courtesy you would show face-to-face.

    But all CoffeeSnobs already do that right!

    Did I mention the really cool casino site that I found?

    Never a truer word spoken! *I think people get de-sensitised towards their keyboards/monitors sometimes and forget that as a fundamental courtesy - - not here at CS tho! *:)

    If only you had found it earlier Andy, you could have paid for the Fiat in cash (using $20 bills no less! *;))

    I went for a look, and seems like popularity of this thread has spread.

    Seen there server busy page??

    Thought it was quite amusing.

    *Quoted from nsxprime.com*
    ----------------------------------

    What if you were hosting a nice little cocktail party and all of a sudden a couple million people from all over the world showed up?

    The site is currently overloaded with traffic, so your session is being denied in an attempt to keep it from crashing entirely. The site can handle about 1,300 sessions at a time right now. Unfortunately you are not one of those 1,300, so please try again later.* Better luck next time!

    In the meantime, maybe you could play some online poker... I hear its a great way to win a lot of money.


    * Please Note: "Try again later" does not mean "sit there mashing the reload button 50 times a second" because if everyone does that, it s just going to take that much longer for the load on the server to ease up.

    No, I didnt get that message, I was one of the lucky ones. ;)

    Funny though. There were times in the history of BeanBay that we needed...

    "Try again later" does not mean "sit there mashing the reload button 50 times a second"

    Nice find Andy. Although in parts it’s quite funny, it’s truly a sad story. I only read the first 10pp and then a few here and there... I hope no harm comes to his young family.

    Yea, but does he really have a young family? How could you believe anything the guy said?

    Raises the whole thing of the imagined anonymity of the Internet, BUT, someone is always watching.
