Mechanical Keyboard Marketplace
« on: Mon, 24 August 2020, 18:24:22 »
Hello all! I created a site called Keebswap, a mechanical keyboard marketplace and successor to Agora Mech. Keebswap allows you to buy/sell any mechanical keyboard related items and is free to use for both buyers and sellers.

I know this is a shameless plug, but I’ve been a member of the MK community for years and was growing tired of the buy/sell format of forums. The vision for Keebswap was to create a marketplace that is easy to use and organized while still giving everyone the feeling of community.

The site was built from the ground up to encompass features that I felt reflected how we currently buy and sell in the community.

I’d love for everyone to check it out and ask questions/start a discussion. Thanks a bunch  :)

Ease of use, searchability, organization and automation. Buying is as simple as a couple clicks. Selling is as simple as filling out a form. When your item sells, your stats are reflected real-time. Buyers can also leave reviews on sellers which further establishes credibility. On Keebswap the focus is on the items and I made it as easy as possible to view everything you need to know about an item in the shortest amount of time.

Mostly because I wanted a fresh start and quite a bit of work went into refactoring the platform.  Agora Mech charged a fee, which from the start I never wanted to do.  Keebswap is free and to use and I felt it was necessary to move on from the Agora Mech branding.

gonna catch the cooties


I make it standard procedure to thoroughly clean anything that I acquire used, immediately, or certainly before I use it.

I take it apart as far as possible and use the most aggressive cleaning method that I think it can withstand.


The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."
