    ^This.

    I completely understand the excitement of finding some good gear amidst scarcity.

    That being said this thread could have been a single post in the recent acquisitions thread.

    If this thread had a bunch of pictures of old gear I don't think anyone would even give a fuck that the carrot (KVM) got dangled for 3 posts.

    I suppose some of us just prefer things more concise.

    TL: DR please.

    One outcome was a bunch of irritable geeks/nerds who didn't realise they didn't want to waste their time reading a bunch of text before it was too late.

    What is the difference between Hoard and Horde?
    To summarize: to hoard refers to accumulating items, while to horde is to gather as a group.

    I disagree. Whilst Shreder, had a unique posting style, he didnt need constant feedback.

    The use of the word horde maybe alludes to the possibility of many forum members contacting said hoarder to buy his stuff?
