I would just like to appreciate this fine builder/seller.
Shipping was ridiculously fast and I feel like I got way more than what I paid for.
A pleasure to do business with.
Thank you again! :beer:

Yes, Pman has sent lasers out to many people here. I don't have any of his builds, but I don't have any builds by anyone other than myself. I have never heard anything but the best about his work and his kindness to other members here.

So true! Pman does some fantastic work. Had him build me a a140 pen build awhile back and was/is very impressed with his build quality. So Pman has another satisfied customer( he seems to do that a lot) enjoy! :)

To all respondents. I know you all mean well, but, by mentioning this person by "name" you risk causing this person trouble from the FDA, that is if he is an American citizen. If you need to praise him do it in some way where you don't mention his name or by p m.

I had Pman LPM one of my lasers awhile back and gave me a very detailed report at different temperatures and anything that seemed off from him. Very kind person :)

This may be a bit too paranoid as lasers and their characteristics are not illegal. Many of the replies about Pman are concerning lasers sent at no charge, and many of those aren't what one would call a pointer, so the FDA wouldn't/couldn't do anything to this person. He's just a very nice guy who has been very kind to many members here and there is nothing wrong with singling him out for praise. I would never give his full name in a post or anyone else, for that matter.

^Very well said. While LPF tends to be a tight knit community it's still respectful to protect each others privacy :)

First off, know the law.

Secondly, a few years ago I posted an article I think from Optics.org concerning this very forum. I think it was titled: You never know who's watching. This forum is known.

In the past one member as I recall was sent a letter of warning by the FDA for selling lasers domestically. I may have been Survival Lasers or DTR. The point I'm making is do we want to potentially cause trouble for such a nice person?

I think anyone that makes a for sale thread knows the potential. To castagate people after the fact, isn't it like closing the door after the cows get out. :thinking:

It is, but I hope next time members will think twice before singing out loud praises that could cause someone trouble.
How bad would members feel if their praising did? There's and expression used during WW2 - Loose lips sink ships.

DTR doesn't sell lasers and I still think this is a case of paranoia. If you sell the lasers on a website, it is already there for the FDA to see and I can't see this thread causing any problems for anyone.

Why just this one targeted thanks thread out of the many? Makes me wonder how really sincere you are:undecided: If i'm wrong about you i'm wrong..
Pman sent a few pointers, nothing out of the ordinary.
I would think your added posts and this loose lips sinks ships thing just might bring more attention.

Why this particular thread you ask? The title was akin to a KMart blue light special and I know what the aforementioned individual does.
I do this anytime someone(s) opens their mouths before thinking of the potential repercussions.
As I said in this thread a well known member was sent cease and desist letter by the FDA. The young generation gives me the impression they aren't as cognizant that what they over share isn't private.

See this thread http://laserpointerforums.com/f53/you-never-know-who-s-watching-forum-81333.html and follow the link.

Who got the cease and desist, and what for specifically?

I am well over 60 years old and this forum is the ONLY social media I belong to for the very reason you seem to be upset about. I don't do Facebook, Twitter, Reditt, or any of the other forms of social media. I am here for the knowledge and to help where I can. Been here nearly three and a half years, which is not as long as some, but long enough. If it doesn't bother Pman, I don't see why you seem to be so incredibly alarmed. I haven't seen anything said in any post that would bring the wrath of the FDA down on anyone who is a member here.
