my thought exactly just didnt want to be a ass
... what if it was a rule that one must take and post a picture of their laser glasses before asking for laser buying advice?
(etc)what we should do is, people that sell complete lasers should require a picture of quality glasses with there username written next to it and the date.
That is not at all true or what is suggested. I have refused to sell items to individuals without laser glasses as I believe anyone selling lasers should. However I did not say "I will not sell to you" I said "please purchase some laser glasses and then pm me" That is not a cold shoulder that is being responsible. Also a picture would not have to be mandatory I am just suggesting that we make some sort of effort to ensure that we are not helping people who are not willing to take the proper safety measures to build or buy dangerously powerful lasers. If someone has no access to a digital camera (which is probably .01% of the population here as you can get one for $10-$30) then they can explain that and we can proceed differently.The conclusion is that if a person has not purchased safety goggles yet (proved by the picture that is provided), then people on the forum would refuse information, and refuse to sell to the person. Basically they would get a "cold shoulder", or at best someone would politely inform them that they need to use a digital camera or a phone with a camera and display their safety goggles before they could interact on the forum.
