    i agree. especially during those chiproom sales that would take place at 1 or 2 pm in the afternoon.

    "uhhm excuse me, i have an important phone call to make..."

    *goes to the back of the office, loads up CT, refreshes and refreshes till those purchase links show up and then purchases way too many chips*

    without CT, I would never have lasted working in the boonies for 5 years +.

    thanks to CT and all the members that made it so great!

    It's too bad, but it is true. PCF is active and mostly good, but it's not the same as this place used to be

    PCF will forever be tainted by the Star chip scandal, and moreso the over moderation of the site that followed. What began as a great place and grew into a nice community became a place of drama and in-fighting among "members." The flippers are also killing that place, for me at least. Now we are seeing a number of outright thievery and con artists just destroying what was left of credibility.

    Say what you want about the "Mass-holes" but they were by far some of the best contributors and most fair traders. All people want is a fair system with credible traders, but that no longer exists.

    Safe to say that greed and arrogance have destroyed all of the chip community websites.

    My favorite thing about that post is that you say nice things about the massholes, and then have a signature line that would irritate the hell out of bergs. A thing of beauty.

    Bergs is a Cowboys fan, I actually feel sorry for him.

    Hey Stank ! The good ole days......I was looking through old emails tonight for something and finally found one from a guy here called Stonker who made me an incredible custom chip display matt for my Original Palmas Club Casino chips. So I tried to email him and it bounced back to me. Next I came to Chiptalk and looked up his name and he is here somewhere I hope.

    Crude picture below of what he made for me.
