Aside, has anyone confirmed the printing on that set yet? I was too lazy to ask. :oops:


Just as a follow through.  Here is Ebay's BS response to my inquiry.

"Please understand, we would like to give you as much assistance as
possible to help you resolve the situation. However, eBay cannot get
involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. eBay's
role is simply to provide a place for buyers and sellers to trade. We
have no control over whether a buyer or seller follows through and
completes a particular transaction."

Is it possible that they are making a reference to the rate of exchange between the U.S. dollar and the Canadian? That is, is it possible that they believe that you intend to pay them in (less-valuable) Canadian dollars than in U.S. dollars?

By the way, covfc1987 reposted his Kandroc. I ended up with an Unpaid Item strike after a huge row over his shilling. 'Twould be appreciated if everyone here would steer clear of it. eBay as usual promised to investigate, then tagged me with an UI.

No, with isoldsh*t I don't think there can be misunderstanding with that.

Looks like someone make them a buy-it-now offer because it isn't up anymore.

Might be because I told him that I warned everyone about his shilling.

I just know he's fat and has BO and bad breath to complete the picture...

Well...I don't know if fat gamers automatically suck  :x , but Coug does remind me of one of Stephen King's characters.  He reads an awful lot like Harold Lauder from The Stand, if Harold had been a titanium rated Ebay seller.

What about Cougar do you find similar to Harold Lauder?

1)  Women wont have sex with him.
2)  Bad acne.
3)  Whines incessantly and is intimidated by everyone.
4)  Blows people up just to get his hands on a VG copy of H1.
5)  All of the above.

:P

Hey wait a minute!!  8O "I don't know if fat gamers automatically suck"????
I certainly don't fit the stereotype--well north of three bills--and one of the reasons I got into D&D was that size and strength (of the players, not the PC's) DIDN'T matter! :)

BTW . . . is there such a thing as a "very good copy of H1"? (One without a crushed box, that is!) :)  :)  :D

I mean...I don't think being fat makes a bad gamer.  Hopefully.

Coug reminds me of Harold Lauder because of his bluster.  He practically screamed at me in our one exchange of communications.  His insistence on his exalted Ebay status seems like the shrill voice of a rather insecure fellow.

Cougar should have his own thread ---- The reason I hate and or despise the silly kitty cat with delusions of granduer  :lol:  :lol: ...

Also include one of the kitty pictures.. For some reason I always laugh seeing a cougar in the kitchen.

Cougar for President?  You gotta be kidding.  At least Bush doesn't go around calling everything "VGC".

I'm no skinny thing myself...but I just threw that in there as the perfect stereotype of the junk food eating, cola swilling, no exercise doing gamer. I mean, it's gotten to the point where I cringe when my wife goes with me on those very seldom ocassions to the local game/comic store....inevitably there are a couple of big guys, no problem there, but they always have stained, too small t-shirts on, bad personal hygiene, and they are ogling covers of the newest issue of Supergirl while commenting on what local fast food franchise has the tastiest grease.  If I'm lucky, when my wife is there they don't amble over to the game section and start making inane gaming comments about their 19/5/4 lvl Druid/half dragon/sadist with Kung Fu grip and Great Cleave that killed an army of dire kobolds at the gaming table the last night....that  always sends my wife out the door giggling.  It just reinforces every neg thought she has about gamers being the outcast dregs of the universe.  I want to pull aside Chubs and Orca and say "Look, dudes, it takes FIVE MINUTES to take a shower, wash your hair, throw on some deordorant cologone, brush your teeth, and pick out a shirt that's XXXXL from your closet.  And for gods sake MIX IN A SALAD between the visits to Dickie's BBQ and Chicken Express!  Or at least a diet Coke....."
  Ok, so I'm a little peeved, last night two GIGANTIC dudes were in the local gamestore eating greasy BBQ AT THE COUNTER while pawing through the rack of Goodman Games stuff nearby.  When I went to checkout, there were stains on the counter, and the odor of unwashed human everywhere.  Sheesh.

Thanks Xax. I was feeling too lazy to search for the kitty. Harami's pic of Cougar at the coffee maker is funny as hell.
