Not getting involved in the mix here, just reporting that I have used these modules effectively to build very small high powered red lasers. They have the ability to punch out the existing diode and be replaced with a LOC or something similair. However like Dave says, you will need to use a different driver with them. So as they come around in the junk box and your looking for a really small module to fit into a really small host, these work very well.

Absolutely. These are great little modules both as 3-4mW red modules AND as small red diode hosts. I haven't tested the lenses for output with the violet laser. Although I don't see the normal "tinting" I see on AR red lenses. Hopefully they are just clear.

They are just nowhere near what he stated and it has become obvious that he either really is unable to do the simplest testing ( a skill that is necessary for a builder/seller) or just flat out lied (either before or after testing)

My money is on the lying AFTER limited testing. He removed the shrink tube from one (I assume looking for the "pot") and hooked it to a battery.

He has no problem lying to make a sale, to increase the price beyond quoted price, to avoid warranty work, or just to try to make himself look better.

Peace,
dave

You just pointed out exactly what I have been doing. Ever since the beginning I haven't liked Tyler because he only seemed interested in getting a sale. And I haven't really known the real facts since the ban poll. Here is what I think we should do. I think we should make a petition. We will say that if x number of people support banning him he is gone. We should put ALL of the links in(ban poll, 8x swap trick, ect) at the top and have people post if they want him gone and WHY. Not just "I don't really like him. Can he leave?".

This may be a bad idea all together. I won't mind if you shoot it down. I'm just putting it out there...

We would need the OP for that thread to keep the list up to date..I MIGHT be able to do it but if someone else wants to(Dave, EF) then I would be happy to let them.

Tell me what you think. It won't hurt my feelings.

@Tyler if you are going to do a rant post in response to this can you spell better than a second grader? I'd appreciate it. :)

I don't know how many other people have complained to c0ld about him. One of the problems when someone like this gets established is that once the exposure begins, everybody else simply sits back and lets the "champion" handle it. Confrontation is uncomfortable. People tend to avoid it. If they see someone else "taking care of it", they have a tendency to sit back and let the other person deal with the discomfort.

The problem with that is it looks like it is just the one or two people alone that are upset. Besides some "cardinal sins" (like racism threats etc.) c0ld generally works via numbers. If "X" number of people complain in "Y" set of time, he will ban. If it is unclear or if the person has a couple of supporters, then c0ld asks for a poll.

Unfortunately, in this instance, Tyler has enough supporters (and he works behind the scenes to rally them) that the poll didn't work. That only leaves direct lobby of c0ld.

ANYONE who is dissatisfied with or doesn't like Tyler's business practices, or got ripped off, or caught him and avoided getting ripped off, or got threatening PMs, etc. needs to PM c0ld to let him know. When Tyler goes off on one of his rambling rants in which he threatens or name calls, you need to PM c0ld. When Tyler gets into his manic phase and posts multiple posts in sequence to yell at individuals, you need to PM c0ld. Are y'all getting the picture? YOU need to PM c0ld.

I'll keep as much awareness in front of the NooBs as possible, but if it is just myself and EF talking, then it looks like a personal thing.

People WANT Tyler to be what he says he is. He talks such a good game that he sounds like he will make everything all better. They are all lies, but it sounds good, especially to someone who does not know his past or who has not been exposed to the "behind the scenes" manipulation.

Tyler is very good at getting others to voice their support
However, all you need to do is look at who it is that is supporting him to see that his supporters are mostly NooBs and his detractors are mostly veterans.

Add to this people's desires to avoid conflict and the desire for him to be "real" and you have the recipe for a long noisy fight in the boards

People need to become involved, actively involved. People need to tell c0ld what they know and what they experienced with Tyler. I have more than one PM in which the person was willing to tell me what the problem was, but don't want me to use their name in my action.

People -- I am just a user like you are. The list belongs to c0ld. You need to tell c0ld yourself. He will keep your identity safe, but HE needs to know. Venting to me may make you "feel better", but it does nothing to protect the neophytes or to end the problem.

<prepares self for the "hate speech" rant (even though Tyler has no idea what hate speech is) >

Peace,
dave

I'm working on re-organizing a new poll with facts. It'll be up in a day, or two tops.

I'm behind you. I've not done any dealings with Tyler ( And I won't now ) but if I see anything fishy I'll give c0ld a shout.


Cheers!

We need to wait until we know how many accounts he is carrying (or at least how many of them originate from the blackberry) or c0ld needs to be involved with checking the "votes/signatures" after they come in.

I would think that all of the dishonest dealings being exposed would be enough, but he is a paid advertiser on the forum. That puts c0ld in a different kind of situation. If he bans a paid advertiser from posting, can he ethically keep the account? Would Tyler continue to sell things to people who found him via this forum? Just having his ad here "implies" some level of credibilty and "approval" from association with the forum.

I don't think we should have Tyler associated with the forum. He makes the whoe forum look bad. However, I don't pay the bills. C0ld does. I donate when I can, but that is not the same as a regular paid advertiser. Even if we take up a "get rid of Tyler's ad's" collection, can c0ld simply drop him? If so, how much $ would it take to get rid of him?

These are questions I cannot answer and it would put c0ld on the spot to make him answer them.

Maybe more PM's <sigh> I hate working in the shadows.

Is there anyone else on the forum whos business could benefit from a banner ad on the forum?

This is one of the challenges we have with this one. He operates whenever possible in PM's only. You see it all over his threads and in his messages. He is always telling people that "this is not the place to talk about this" or (just PM me and I will take care of it) and moves them off into PM's. The only way we find out about some of the deceptive and dishonest practices is when someone becomes suspicious enough to send a PM to someone like me.

Peace,
dave

Hmm...Dave misspelled "whole". Could Dave himself have multiple personalities and actually be Tyler? Stay tuned to find out!

Nah -- I'm just on a friend's computer. She uses IE rather my beloved FF. I don't get my helpful red underlining of misspelled words in IE. :(

Page saved in case it is edited... Good find! Is it illegal over there?

So that's what my package from him smelled of :-S

EDIT: Also explains why some international packages were seized, sniffer dogs are surprisingly good...

That shows just how rediculous you are! did you read the persons photo's info... age 22, lives in NY, looks nothing like me, i am 6' 3" tall, and the marijuana, wow. you know there are OTHER darkarmyofone's out there.

You'll be hearing about this one, this is completely defermation of character, and out of line.

And charlie of all people, you dissapoint me. you say my package "smelled" of the stuff? yeah cuz i keep my workshop LOADED with it, you guys are OBSESSED with me, literally OBBSESSED!

Get over yourselves, your just trying to stir the pot, and now your posting FALSE information about ME, telling people that is ME... your most definatly going to be dealt with on this one Dave, you've crossed the line between internet arguements, and effecting my life in real-time. expect a PM.

One thing in his defence is that his shipping address is not in NY, as claimed on those 2 profiles, though the ages do.

Hi Everyone... my name is Tyler, and i am 19 years old. i managed to get myself extremely addicted to opiates of all types "hydros, perkaset, oxycontin, methadone", i stumbled across this website and was touched by how supportive you all are. i would really like to be a part of this wonderfull group of people because i myself need help getting through the withdrawls as i recently quit cold turkey aprox. 6 days ago.

im one of the few "maybe many?" who get to suffer from the works because i have been taking opiates in massive amounts daily for years. i was in a situation where they were all free and definately not legal... so one can immagine how easy it was to abuse them.
i suffer from extreme vomitting and constant upset stomach, diareah that is of the same extreme, restless legs, no sleep whatsoever, i cant eat, extreme anxiety, and i lost my job because of all this...

i could really use a few words of comfort... those of you who have kicked your habbit on this forum all seem so happy... i want what you have. but im scared... im only 19, i live by myself, and my parents arent around...

can anyone help me...any advice? i need a friend...


and

i too am going through this in a way, the meds your referring to are also known as saboxin "spelling?" you should google it and then talk to your doctor about it. i hear it can do wonders, and its not a narcotic. at least thats what i hear, i havnt gotten it prescribed to me yet.

im glad you found this place, theres so many amazing people here, i just found this joyous place last night at 11pm and its already changed my life. keep coming here and talking to us, your gunna feel better in no time, i promise.

lift jenilee up high you guys, she needs every angel she can get right now. we're here for you, send me a message if ude like to talk anytime ok!!

much love to all

Tyler


It's probably some other Tyler that calls himself darkarmyofone, eh?

An addiction to drugs would help explain some of his more extreme mood swings and the lying to make himself look better

Peace,
dave
