@macsblow: Well, I don't know how easy it would be to find a pair in your price range, but since nobody else has cared to comment yet, I've done well with Maui Jim glasses. They're typically a bit on the pricier side, though the pair I got were on a super-sale, so about $75. The Backyards design is nice.

@arosiriak: oh look a shill company posted a website, imagine that!

@hobbit: sorry, couldn't see anything that said it was against the rules

@hobbit: It's not like he/she's pretending they doesn't work for the company like those dinks from leftlanesports. I thought I got to be the snarky one and you were the nice one :-p having a crappy day?

I'll second the Maui Jims - My wife has a pair that work great and she loves them. They also put a new arm on them, when we had an unfortunate incident with a watermelon, for next to nothing, and were pretty quick with the repairs.

@rockbottomgolf: Common sense might have suggested that you post it as a deal, and then link to the deal. Personally, I don't much care for it. Just because a rule hasn't been written doesn't mean that it's not just a bit tacky.

No reply necessary.

You get what you pay for, so goes the old saying. I've shopped here: http://www.gogglesandglasses.com/ and gotten some great deals. I can buy several sets at a time that look great AND I don't get wrapped around the axle if I lose them or break them. And I DO break them. I'm hard on glasses.

The glasses come in a nice little pouch and their customer service folks sound like they're Woot-kin. I'll definitely use them again.

If you're patient, keep your eye on steepandcheap.com - they have sunglasses often enough.

What happened here with rockbottomgolf?

@jumbowoot: The original comment was deleted. Whoever had control of Tattles would be the one that could say more.

@jumbowoot: he suggested his own site as a good place to get sunglasses. as you see I personally thought it was slightly tacky. I, however, did not tattle.

vote-for2vote-against

Does his site have good sunglasses?
Does he have a clearance tab where markdowns are displayed?

vote-for0vote-against

Were there grooming issues?

vote-for2vote-against

How was the pricing on the sunglasses?

vote-for2vote-against

@jumbowoot: I'm not sure what the issue was with the comment, but apparently it triggered enough red flags quickly enough for a few of us to call it spam and question the legitimacy, regardless of whether or not the site listed good sunglasses. Sorry, but I don't have the URL saved. Action happened to quickly... and I wasn't the one who tattled either. I just watched, for what that may be worth :)

vote-for1vote-against

Maybe there was a grooming issue?
Was he unkempt?

I visited the site. The little red man certainly qualifies for bedraggled.
I'm not sure what Shannon looks like but I'll be sure to ask this afternoon when I visit with him.

I checked out the prices on sunglasses as well. Web low on several brands.
Some good club prices as well.

It's not like he's a whitey. Solid purple. Member since 2007. Many purchases.

I'd really like to know what those red flags were.

@jumbowoot: then why not post as a deal and then direct people over to the deal?

vote-for1vote-against

@jumbowoot: Obviously, you seem not to be the one who handled the deletion of the comment. For some reason, I thought all Tattles were logged, including who handled them.

Is it just me? Somehow there seems to be a subtext going on here, and I'd rather you just came out and said whatever it is that you are looking for. You're scaring me.

Oh, and ditto on what @hobbit just said.

@hobbit: I wouldn't want to be shilling.

@jumbowoot: My dear, you know that our friend, @hobbit, meant for the person we're discussing to post it as a deal, and certainly did not mean to imply that you were change for an English Pound.

[Edit] dammit, and I have to run off to other obligations, too. NO HAVING FUN WITHOUT ME!

@shrdlu: We flogged a perfectly good candidate for a new erickadyscern. It doesn't appear that we even tried to be nice from what I can see here.

The shill sword was drawn immediately and the tacky tag was quickly affixed.

I hope we didn't miss an opportunity to make a new friend and a valuable community member.

vote-for3vote-against

Just to be clear on this. I do not think that the person who posted the comment that was deleted is like Erika Dyscern. I find her to be exceptional, and it bothers me a bit to have you hold this up. You also did not say whether or not Tattles were logged, and why it was that it seemed to me that you seem to be looking for a scapegoat here (although if you feel the need for a sacrifice, I'm happy to be it). Even if every single person who has commented on this thread also hit the Tattle button, and complained about that comment, WE cannot delete a comment.

It is what it is.

@shrdlu: You know that if enough black triangles complain, especially certain highly respected ones, that many of the mods are going to go with it.

I DETEST the spammers and shills, and do my best not to let them get away with it. This was not some shill - it was the company itself, not trying to hide, not pretending to be a satisfied customer, and not pushing his product on someone unasked.

@jumbowoot is totally correct in thinking that the beat stick came out too fast on this guy.

For the record the URL was something like /sunglasses/polarized.html

vote-for3vote-against

My apologies for the misspelling, Erika.

Our internal procedures for Tattles have no bearing on this public conversation.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and some opinions have more weight than others. Vendors are members of this community and should be given the respect they earn like any other respected member. Erikadyscern has earned it. Other members should be allowed to earn it as well.

We have been heavy handed when a member has colored outside the lines.
I'm thinking we should allow them to color first.
