Well thanks DAD! You express your opinion and I get attacked with private messages on Facebook. One of them stating that I had a "Vendetta" against Joe Koban. I didn't even know this thread was on here! Joe Koban if you have a problem with me why don't you try talking to me, instead of having another moderator message me? My dads comments never mentioned your site or you! Out of the dozen or so Facebook pages what makes you think that he was referring to "Picks of the Week"?

This adds to the reasons why we prefer Oldgas over Facebook pages. Man I wish Dick Bennett was still around.

Bobby, not Shorty!

Lets ask Jim....Hey Jim, what are your traffic numbers looking like in the past 6 months here on OG??? I like both sites but let's face it, educated or not put your time in on both and you will benefit your collection or inventory. Both pages have there far share of asses. Just wondering what the true effect is here?

The number of pageviews and visits for March 2015 were slightly higher than March 2014. March 2014 was significantly higher than March 2013. So growth has lessened.

Quote from Katfsh... This adds to the reasons why we prefer Oldgas over Facebook pages.

Don't get me wrong here guys that love OLDGAS,, but there isn't this kinda bickering on FB that I know of.. there seems to be more of a P-----G contest on OLDGAS.. I still enjoy OLDGAS everyday but I do find both sites for learning and buying and selling.. very beneficial..

I didn't mean for this topic to be turned into a place to argue but that's what happens on here A LOT .

I didn't realize this was bickering I thought this was a discussion, something old folks like to do. Sorry Bobby for getting you hammered by such fine up standing guys on Facebook. I did get a PM on here with a couple great sites that I can share with Hayden. Thanks Eshaver.
