I have been a Lotus owner for over 30 years and have been involved in Lotus internet forums for as long as there have been Lotus internet forums.
If I wished to call you out, trust me, I know how.
I was not calling you out for anything. All accusations are strictly in your imagination
You have no location listed, so this could be in my backyard or Arkansas or Saskatchewan
As to my post, you realize there are actually reasons that one might not want to post a location, like the owner is a freakin lunatic and you need to warn a person, but maybe posting that the owner is a lunatic on a public forum is a bad idea.
Being in the Lotus world long enough one realizes that a car such as this could be there for another 10 years at which point PMing you is futile[because postings on the internet are forever] or the guy may grab it with a front end loader and toss it in a dumpster tomorrow, in which case waiting for a return PM till you get back from your hike in the Sierras is too long.
Some decades ago I was up at a tiny local junkyard and noticed a familiar engine, a Renault Gordini. I quickly went and posted to the Lotus Cars mailing list and gave its exact location and a guy had it home 2 days later. junkyard had no idea what they had, would probably have scrapped it if not for quick action
That is how I chose to deal with a similar situation, just for reference.
Oh, and thanks for the negative seller rating, were I that type of jerk, I would return the favor, but you are not worth my while
