    Bob's Apostrophe Sale in the new B&S forum

    Moderators, take note...owners aren't above reproach, are they? Maybe it's against rules but I felt compelled to speak out. Bob has a price of $0.29 for what appears to be a handful of Apostrophe's on the B&S board. Sure he says "ignore the ad"..but that causes even more interest in what he's selling. Although I won't say it's an outright ripoff, but I recall seeing a box of 100 at the local Office Depot for under $2.99! Talk about price gouging! What's next, exclamation points at three for a $1.00?

    Ya, but he doesn't even state if they're new or used! Do I detect a scam?

    Ad deleted? Ya, I figured it was too good to be true (you know what they say?).... or in this case, it really wasn't that good a deal...LOL!

    Anyhow, glad the good folks at Getdpi saw fit to take care of this, especially that I was just about to double my offer Thanks Getdpi

    Not sure, was it used but in good condition? I'm beginning to think Dave was on to something. Glad the post was deleted in time before someone got caught with a used/broken apostrophe.

    I think I need another drink.......

    They were periods with a bad case of comma elevated to the level of apostrophes since they were very expensive.
    Keep an eye out for the announcement for the designer series of apostrophes at a luxury price in your choice of precious metal overlay on precious resin and covered with endangered species leather.
    Each one has been serialized and will be made available in a limited edition only to the select few.

    Okay it all makes some sort of weird sense now. Bob is working for Hasselblad now.
