Well Greetings to you Dr. Avul Pakir:
No, I am not in any way connected to imokub2, other than on a hello-basis.
My reticence to engage in a discussion about a rug dealer's wares with an anonymous poster, especially one whose hidden agenda was not very hidden, should be easily understood.
Apparently you are not afraid to identify yourself, which goes a long way to imply the 'honesty' of your intentions. I do agree with your assessment of imokub2's goods, however, I have not found his age guesstimates to be as inaccurate as you feel they are.
Horses for courses and it is clear imokub2 has been successful selling his goods on Ebay and in creating and maintaining a happy customer base. Good for him is all RK.com could say, as many others have tried and failed. One example of someone who crashed and burned trying to do the same is a-bey (jimbo allen's Ebay seller's name for those of you who might not know). Good ole jimbo got entailed in a number of messy deals - mostly do to his inflated and erroneous descriptions of the age and quality of his wares.
Michael Phillips, who is imokub2, is an honest dealer who has found a niche and what could possibly be objectionable about that, truthseeker?
By the way truthseeker's fear of identifying himself, either publicly on the board or privately in emailing me, says volumes about RK.com's suspicions about his motives and intentions in posting the original message that began this thread.
So thanks for your input, Dr. Avul Pakir, and please feel free to do so in the future.
