I was looking on eBay, and was surprised to see my Dads Custom 6 manual on there for $35

I can prove it was his and was stolen from our files.

I sent him/them a nasty gram and urge anyone here who uploaded an ORIGINAL scanned document here to look thru his stuff. He is getting cash in his pocket by stealing our work and good intentions.

Here is a link to his page

The manual thief's  always make my blood boil.

Making copies off of the hard work of others who originally intended them to be shared free of charge.

Thieves and child molesters should have their fingers cut off somewhere between their chins and shoulders. Just sayin'

Sadly some people will take the hard work of others and use it for personal gain with no conscience or remorse - let us hope they donate some of their money to worthwhile charities rather than pocket it all.  As a song I remember from years gone by says - "May the bird of paradise fly up their nose" etc.

If a few people can prove they have been stolen, I'll contact eBay and make their life as interesting as possible.

The good people and the manuals here have helped me out ALOT. To have someone take advantage of members hard work is total BULLS@@T. It seems there is always a ahole in a group.

I believe it went

"May the bird of paradise fly up your nose.

May an elephant caress you with it's toes.

May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose.

May the bird of paradise fly up your nose"

 

Homer and Jethro if I recall right.

 

I heard of a guy not too far from here who thought someone was helping themselves to firewood from his shed. He apparently bored a hole in one piece, poured some black powder into it then plugged the hole and put it back in the pile where he knew he wouldn't touch it. A day or two later one of his neighbours woodstoves exploded.

why can't the manuals be water marked with gtt logo?? I am sure thousands of people joined this site just for manuals and never posted, maybe moderators should change it so have to post 25 times before downloading.

George decided a long time ago that if a member here wanted a nice copy to go with his or her pride and joy, that they shouldn't have to look around a watermark to get the info.

We were watermarking thumbnails for a while and I wouldn't bet against a couple manuals having marks somewhere, but he was trying to help the people here with info, not pad someone's pockets.
