Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I think you got about the best return you could expect. A $12 lesson learned and some lost time. We all hate to see any upcoming enthusiast have a sour experience like yours, hopefully the support you're experiencing here keeps your enthusiam up.

Ditto what Mike said! E-bay is fine as long as you do your homework. I have made plenty of purchases on e-bay and have had only one item that was strictly NOT was it was represented. Unfortunately for me, it was one of those high shipping rate/low bid dealios that I normally avoid like the plague! Lesson learned, but for me it was a tad more expensive...
If you're not sure or think it might be too good to be true... well, it probably is! Stick to forum members or sponsors here for a bit until you can tell a legit deal from the crud...
I can tell you I have nothing but good things to say about all the kites bought from Steve and the sites along the right side, not to mention the members here.
Hope this hasn't turned you off to a great hobby!

Turning me off flying...heck NO!!

I flew for 6 hrs yesterday, non-stop in a snowstorm (light dusting).  I loved every minute of it and at the end I was in better control of my kites then any other learning session.

In the beginning I flew the light wind and in the end flew the Prism Quantum.  I had that thing doing hard, fast, controlled spins.  One spin and stop at 12 o'clock.  Again and again and again.

This morning I bought $56 worth of stuff from Prism (sorry Chico kites...one item I needed was out of stock and I wanted 6 of them...so I had to go to the source).  That was this morning.

This evening I bought (from Chico!!) a 4D kite.

My enthusiam has not gone down because of the Rev kite issue...I am probably better out NOT diworseafying by getting into 4-line.  I will stick with and master the 2-line.

And this group is AWESOME!

On a positive note...I flew the 2-line delta for 6 hrs on Sunday and broke one spine and one leading edge!  Life is good and I am getting better at flying...still the same at crashing tho!  hehehee  Cheesy

Crashes are what happens when you run out of altitude and ideas at the same time.  Cheesy
Glad you got your money back.  Wink

Good one, Denny!  Best explanation for a crash- now I don't feel so bad about my flying skills!

If he is shipping by USPS, the US Postal Inspection Service might be interested too.

Then he links there to Gone With The Wind and a couple others alleging they are also under federal investigation for fraud. False, fraudulent and slanderous accusations IMO.

Reporting to ebay is all but impossible, but I put in 5 or 6 reports for every stretch of policy violations I could come up with. What other steps can we take? This is so totally out of line, this guy needs to be shut down immediately.

So JeepersJoey do you still have his address? I know some people who would be interested in it  Wink

There is some severe strangeness going on:

http://www.kysonlephardt.com/
http://www.kysonlephardt.com/contact.htm
http://www.kysonlephardt.com/ebaysellers.htm

Pay very close attention to the third link.   Starting to sound more and more like there might be some satellite offices in the Cayman Islands.
