I love my MO peeps! I miss MO peeps that have come and gone! No other board gives me what I need for my Disney fix.
I remember Greenban from the other board. I also remember he was banned over there. I didn’t find this board till 2014. I was over there for years.

That's the title. "You're banned," will be the catchphrase.

I'm sure there's at least one cable network that would pick it up!

Greenbanned (his name here) popped in for a spell a year or two ago. I wonder what happened? I think he had family stuff that led to the liquidation of his points, but thought he might have been back.

I have to get my Disney fix on this board! You were all so much help when we were looking to buy our contract which was only 2 years ago so my post count is low as well. I've rented a couple of times from this board for VGC since we would have a very hard time getting it at 7 months esp in summer when we would travel out to the west coast.
My main question is with the rental process getting so scary how is David's protecting people or are they? Would that be a better option? A lot of you I recognize now after being on the board for a while but some that post points on the RTB I have no idea who they are!

I can provide you with facts that might be the answer to your first question.

I have been providing owners and renters with excellent service solutions for over 13 years and here are the results:

0 owners have lost money due to a scam.
0 renters have lost money due to a scam.

Thanks for listening. Now, back to our regular broadcast

Oh no, now look what I started!

However, I have another idea. After all, scammers are thankfully few and far between. And Judge Judy must be getting tired of the drama by now, sooo ....

Judge Kim could hear all kinds of infractions, from scammers to those like the above example.

“You’re banned” would be the perfect response to them, whether for a month or for life.

And “douchebag scammer” could be emblazoned in red across a mugshot of the worst of all culprits.

MOs could apply to be the court officials for each episode.

We should give violators the choice of being judged by Judge Ms. Personality or a panel of their MouseOwners peers. I would honestly prefer my chances with Kim.

At a high level, the way David’s process is structured it would be a great deal more difficult to pull off a scam and the scammer would get a lot less money. Nothing is completely crime-proof, but crooks go for the most amount of money for the least amount of work and trying to scam via David’s would be a whole lot of work as compared to just looking for easy prey on message boards, eBay, etc. where they can get more money for far less effort.
If I could not work with a known MO member, I would absolutely 100% go with David’s (which is exactly what I did except for one short rental to a MO regular).
