Disclaimer: These are all real PMs that I have received in my four years on the forums. I will not name the offenders, but rest assured, I will not deal with them again. It's not my typical scene to write negative feedback if I'm pleased with the overall conclusion because life happens and we cannot predict what fate will befall our best laid plans. I have compiled the most vile of BST habits and composed them into an amusing movie reference. Enjoy.

p.s. If you don't get the reference, it's from a fake commercial shot for the film, Grindhouse, by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez.
Really though, there are alot of new faces on the BSTs and problems must be addressed before people start getting too sloppy.
