Message From A Friend Delivered For A Friend [from who you might not expect]

I was talking with a friend which some of you might know. He was talking about message boards and how he really doesn't like them anymore, but that there was one he liked quite a bit, because it was informative and very fun. I asked him why he didn't post there anymore, and he said that he didn't because he thought he might be constantly flamed because of some mistakes he made. I said, "Well, what if they don't hate you? Maybe they miss you, and if they're mad, you can find a way to make up for your mistakes." He then asked me for a favor, to come on the message board and post a message for him. The person I am talking for is someone you might remember..

Areku? Sarareku? That ring a bell?

Anyway, he knows he owes some people some money. Some seller for a $12 Lizzie McGuire movie dvd he never bought. Another for a Sega Genesis he never sent, that was worth around $40. According to him, he never really wanted to steal. He never really wanted to not give the money back, but life happened and that was that.

He was able to return to online selling earlier, and is making a bit of money here and there every other day, and is ready to pay back to those people he owes. Maybe those people aren't even here anymore, I don't know anything else myself, but here is the poll he asked me to post..

Should Sarareku Return?
Should Sarareku Lurk?
Should Sarareku Rot In Hell?
Should Sarareku Move On?

He/she/it should think about settling up on debts if there are any before thinking about returning to a forum.

It would be nice if he were to make financial amends.

If I was worried about being constantly 'flamed', I would resign under a new name and create a new identity. Though I seem to recall his posting style was pretty unique, so he'd be recognised soon.

Surprised to hear that there was some trading scandel. I assumed he left cause he was tired of everybody having fun with his shiney <3 <3 <3

According to him, he never really wanted to steal. He never really wanted to not give the money back, but life happened and that was that.
So he steals money from a couple of our members, runs away, then a little while later wants to return like nothing happened? Because "life happened"?! Weird...and amazingly arrogant.

As has been said, first things first. Pay off his debts, WITH INTEREST. Have his victims post that all is forgiven. It is really up to them (and the mods), in my opinion.

And if he does come back, tell him to knock off the shining love bullshit. Nobody was buying it.

The saga continues! I say he should come back, but whatever response he gets, well, that's what he deserves. *evil grin*

I think he also ripped somebody off for some Turbo Graf 16 stuff if I recall.. which I do because I almost attempted to buy it myself, and am glad I decided not to. Wasn't he the member that would come into other people's thread and preach to them about love and treating women badly for really dumb shit like what some people's pet names were for their significant others?

I have no idea who this person is, but if all this is true, I'm glad he/she/it isn't around.

Aside from the shining love, let's not forget that sarareku was a flat-out racist and bigot. Not saying he shouldn't come back, but I just wanted to remind everyone.
