    Bite me. If you want examples of ignorance, just scan some of your posts for basic grammar and sentence structure. You have given absolutely no proof that the pen wasn't looked at, numerous people have already pointed out an obvious possible issue (and no need for me to restate that), and your boorish behavior of calling out a well-known business with little to stand on, along with petulant behavior just seals the deal.

    So, yeah, bite me. I hope you get both your pen and your attitude fixed.
    Jon, you make me smile. Thanks for adding humor to this over the top trolling thread.

    You guys are not drinking the koolaid. You guys took the red pill.

    I will continue to share my experience with other pen aficionados. So that they know what to expect when purchasing from nibs.com. You can continue trolling around blogs to try to discredit experiences and cover faults. Facts for people like you.

    Wait. Do you work or in any way associated with nibs.com. Haha you are, aren't you? That's why you are taking this too personal. Silly clown. You just got caught.

    After this thread, so will yours.
    So you are associated with nibs.com. How does that work? Do they pay you to browse the internet looking for negative experiences from nibs.com? Or is it per blog?

    I'm a "noob" because I have a job. I don't go around looking to discredit peoples experience.

    I share my experience. FACTS, not opinions. Unlike you who has a bias OPINION of nibs.com. You actually do a diservice to pen afficionados.

    By the way. I have heard about you in FPN. You really are that guy.

    Sorry, don't read every thread, though I should also have said, in agreement with the majority opinion, consider sending back to nibs.com to give them the opportunity to demonstrate their apparently (never used them myself, so wouldn't know) deserved reputation for considerate customer service; though, equally, I can understand why one might be hesitant to return to original supplier...

    I remember a thread a few months ago on FPN regarding the generally unsatisfactory quality of 'expensive' pens going along the same lines...
    SIR. Their customer service is great. No doubt about that. The comment I made was based on my most recent purchase of my Nakaya and how no QC or inspection was done. I wanted to inform other pen aficionados so that they are careful when ordering from nibs.com or what to expect when they order a pen.

    The problem is when trolls appear and try to discredit your experience. Not only that but offend people in the process.

    I have lost trust on nibs.com. At this point. I am willing to pay a different pen master to truelly look in to the pen.

    Kratos, your "experience" is one data point. Sharing it really doesn't help anyone.
    Get your pen fixed somewhere, and please GTFO.

    One pen. Even if what you say is true your sample size is one pen.
    Your one purchase does not inform anyone of what to expect from Nibs.com. All it tells them is that one pen got out or that one guy doesn't know how to use his pen.

    No need to get conspiratorial. All of us who have questions about your claims could not all work for nibs.com. That's a weird assertion.

    So, the last thing I'm going to side with is "yeah, this jerk didn't do what he was supposed to do". No evidence of that, and no track record of that kind of service. They offer to make it right (write?), with minimal turn-around, and still Mr. Grumpy isn't happy.

    Well, this is what happens when you open your door to the public. I hope it gets sorted out, and I certainly am not changing my opinion of John or his staff or business ethics.

    This is beginning to have a familiar ring...
    My other pen is a Montblanc.

    And my other blog is a tumblr!

    I am sure that there are more people that had bad experience with nibs.com. But people like you prevent them from speaking out.

    For folk reading this thread.

    The good folk at nibs.com really do check each pen before it ships.

    The problems the person who started this thread claimed is not something that would show up in that test.

    Nibs.com did offer to fix the OPs issues but what the person describes is not a pen related issue but a well known issue found in many converter filled pens and often seen with Platinum converters.

    There has been zero evidence presented to justify a claim that Nibs.com does not test pens before they are shipped out.

    It's very likely that the poster who started this thread is a troll who has a history of registering under new names and initially making a flame style post.

    You can either decide to listen to the person who started this thread or to all of the others who have far more actual experience dealing with nibs.com.
