I was 19 and clearly an idiot. Sent $300 for 3rd tow tickets at Mansfield. They were to be at will call under my name. Needless to say they were not there and he was a ghost afterwards. Never heard from him again. I was a poor college kid; it was pretty devastating at the time.

Oh, that is so fucking shitty. On top of the $300, him actually making you go to the venue, and get that feeling when they tell you there are no tickets. What a shitbag.

Hes the one who got busted selling counterfit jeans, right? And ended up going into the army?

I think so, and if I remember correctly, some notable poster (Kristen?) from Amidreaming married him afterwards and claimed he was a changed man.

I am still angry at myself for getting screwed by a Mr Ovaries and then going to add him to the bad trader list (what was that called?) and seeing he was already on there.

We all remember that show day excitement - especially back in the day when (at 19) you maybe only had a handful of shows at best under your belt. So so shitty

I was in 9th grade when this stuff happend. I am happy to write my wrongs of the past. It was my fault. Bit off more them i could chew. I am sincerely sorry.

Having said that this interview involves the serious subject of Alzheimer's which has stolen my mother from me, so please if you have nothing to say about the interview then move on...
It's a shitty interview by a shitty person

He’s the one who got busted selling counterfit jeans, right? And ended up going into the army?

A friend of mine was ripped off by mr. bromley back then (early 2000's) as well for tickets. I remember my buddy telling me about it not too long after it had happened and right when he said the name I was like..oh no....and my friend looked at me and asked if I knew him and I told him that he was notorious for ripping people off, tickets, random scams, and again yet another bad apple in the trading community who ripped many many people. He was already a well-known fuckface in the community by the early 2000's and unfortunately those "bad trader" lists didn't circulate well enough to make people aware of guys like him, so he sorta just zig-zagged through the fanbase using multiple emails, screen names, board names, etc... ripping people off for a long time.

I vaguely remember the AMI thing. I was a mod on AMI for a short time and he was always a topic of discussion behind the scenes, mainly because she (and someone else) kept defending him.

And someone had a personal encounter with Bromley at a show, didn't they? I know it wasn't Mersh, but it was someone that I think still posts on here? They mentioned it in that ufck thread that Urban was talked about. Sad thing is these guys have issues outside of the dmb community as well, it's not like they just decided to start being terrible people to random fans in this community. This is usually an extension of who they are as a person in everyday life. I'm sure the same goes for Urban as well.

Honestly if any of these folks have really "changed" it'd be nice to see them make some kind of reparations. I was lucky enough to join the community at a time when people like this were well known enough that I knew to avoid them. I very clearly remember these names.

I remember all this and a thread entitled, "Wow. Just Wow." among other things. The internet was such a different place in those days.

So basically he was just selling a random show that you'd trade, it wasn't even an actual "bootleg" you'd buy in a store back then. I'm sure he did more than all that as well. But imagine all that stuff and then multiply it by...shit dozens and dozens of people over the course of like 6 or 7 years. Then you add on top of that he was a nasty jerk beyond the theft. So yeah of course you can say "hey man, it's only like 15 - 20 bucks a bunch of years ago", and you're 100% right but a) theft is theft, b) he not only took your money but then continued to be an asshole verbally and through his actions, c) he did this to many traders and the only reason it may not seem like a big deal to you is because pretty much all those people he screwed over don't post anymore so it only seems like one guy is talking about. But trust me, those of us who were around then know his reputation and/or have been screwed by him on numerous occasions. The trading community back then was a great thing to be a part of so when you had bad apples like Urban ruining things it's always something you remember so it's not like there are any overreactions here.
Let me clarify, I am 100% on your side. Thinking how many people he screwed over is immediately where my mind went to understand your outrage. Also, I love a good grudge as much as the next guy so i respect the move of seeing his name and unleashing.
