Son got it off an elderly neighbor and used it till its battery died and then gave it to me cause he had bigger dreams .. He is tall and I am short and it is not big on leg room ..

Dont Call outside of 4 to 8 pm..

Trademe should have an “this guy’s an idiot” button.  Over time, you end up setting some kind of threshold that unless you have a positive idiot rating, you can’t even ask questions, let alone bid.   Abandoning 3 or  more sales in a year would earn you maximum idiot points automatically for example.

Yea… feel the rage.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
