What are you talking about? Matt is the one who forced Tom to post the receivership notice on MyBitcoin.com. Matt, in a Fedora and London Fog jacket, flew to Nevis and camped a PO Box, surviving on BitMunchies.com until Tom attempted to sneak in and grab all the KMart junk mail flyers. It was really a very simple case to crack.
That reminds me, do you regret being willing to take down the thread about how Matt (a.k.a BitMole) tried to weasel out of paying you for work done now?
This may sound a bit convoluted however, while I believe it is resoundingly beneficial for most everyone that the threads not be removed, I do not regret being willing to take down that thread because I was honoring a resolution to our disagreement. If you read closely you'll see each time I mention it I pretty much say the same thing: it was his request and I agreed out of respect for our resolution. I knew what he was doing.
If you read the threads (and actually managed to care about 2 nincompoops arguing, lol) I said a couple times that once he paid I would post an apology. I never did. That was because it was a part of our agreement. His actual request at the end was for me to delete some posts and threads AND apologize, which would have meant there would be no record of our disagreement, only my apology post. That wouldn't have played out so well for me or the truth.
The apology, if it had been posted, would've been to comply with an agreement and would've been along the lines of "my belief that you never intended to pay was, in the end, erroneous because you did indeed borrow money and pay me." From my perspective there wasn't anything else to apologize for. He had been dishonest. He was also pushing back the payment time. These are classic scam moves that led me to believe he wouldn't pay me. I had a sense he did care about his online credibility, so that meant my only hope of payment was to embarrass him publicly. I did so. He claimed my actions, especially the release of "his" artwork, warranted the non-payment however eventually I was paid.
The debate about whether he would have paid without my prompting (and without the urging of maybe half the thread respondents, and without the scammer tag the mods put on him until he paid, and without the loan he was given) can rage on. It's like politics and religion; no one will be swayed from their beliefs.
It may be hard to see because I edited some posts to comply but from my perspective there was more to the story than just the late 1BTC payment. Some of it has been whitewashed into simply being a story of "purchaser couldn't pay immediately, asked for an extension; Keyser refused and immediately went to the forum to shout scam."
