He backed out of the off Ebay deal but did pay me by Paypal couple weeks later for the items he won. IIRC he was having some finacial problems at the time, but I didn't keep that email.

Well, I'm hoping he keeps up his end and does pay me this weekend (30 days after the auction ended, BTW).  Maybe he's having financial problems again, who knows. He's been blocked from any further auctions though.  I don't know why he flipped out over a $17 order when I was ready to forget about it if he just paid me the money.
 I had the absolute strangest day today.  I ended up blocking four people, when I don't block four people in a month much less one day.  I had this guy, the guy that left me a neg before ever seeing if I would rectify a situation, the guy who sent me a ebay message that I was charging too much for my magazines and would never sell any (thanks for the advice from a 50 FB buyer) and a zero feedback buyer who bought a large ticket item awhile back and never bothered to ever contact me about paying. Sheesh.

He outbid me on that auction and then sent me a little note through e-bay saying that he would pay whatever it took to get that module. Seemed like an odd thing to do. I resisted the temptation of trying to discover the exact $ amount of "whatever it takes" however.

Hey Itty, you've given me a shilling complex.  Lately, I feel like a shill bidder since all I seem to do is push up your high bid.

Though I am under no delusion or illusion that you will post my response, I advocate that, perhaps, you should take a close look at your own kind, your own kind of D&D collectors.  For the last few days, I have been the object of discussion on your "shady dealer's" board.  I am shill by your standards and as a result my honor has been impugned.  Though your allegations and presentation of evidence follows some logic, I must say that your discussion reveals more about your group of collectors or buyers and sellers, which in and of itself is an interesting façade or mask that many of you of wear, then any people you critique or criticize. For example, about 1 out of 3 of the people involved in the discussion of my "inappropriate" behavior were involved in personal emails sent to me at [email protected] or [email protected] making private offers, which seems inappropriate by your so-called standards.  In addition, they instructed me "how to end an auction" and "how to get the most out of an auction" all in an effort to get the auction closed.  After my auction was in fact closed, the offers increased five-fold from people all over the globe.  As for the great detector of shills, a certain glee or even giddiness is evident in keeping a close-to-perfect record and maintaining a certain reputation of "radar" omniscience.  All in all, I'd say a complete self-examination is an order.

Yep, thats me.  :D  I sure do like to call out all the thieves, liars and cheats in the world.  By most people standards though, that is the what the good honest people of society do. I am not exactly sure what standards you live by so I am not exactly sure as to why I would need any sort of self-examination.  Then again  since you are not only a scammer but also a liar as well, as evidenced by your email correspondances with one of the posters here,  then maybe I should have expected that type of a response.

Well, I already admitted to making a private offer before the auction ended, and to pointing Patrick to this thread.

I still think it's a damn shame the auction was brought down.  Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

Well, he has admitted in his own post that he shilled the auction how much more guilty do you need than that?

Whatever, I am done with this, this has become a fucking joke.  You go ahead and side with the liar/shiller Stephen, whatever makes you happy. :roll:

Holy shit, people, keep it to four-letter or less words. Us idiots can't understand it.

LeBlow, the revelation of your shilling was a boon to the community at large. Your nefarious behavior only reinforces the fact that an increasing number of sellers are resorting to unsavory tactics in order to pillage the wallets of hapless collectors. We as a whole are indebted to bclarkie for shining the searing light of truth upon your valueless carcass, and the fact that eBay condemned your shil account to the nether realms validates the commonly held opinion that they are singularly concerned with profit, else they would have extinguished your selling account with the same fell stroke.

Or, as draco would say:

LOL u noob wtf r u pisin about ROFLMAO

I'm a bit confused by this sentence.  Are you saying you are a shill and have dishonored yourself, or are you saying that you are not a shill but were dishonored by the accusation?

Glad you asked that - I'm not sure myself. Has this definitely been proved to be a shill?

As I mentioned in the other thread . . . ebay took his auction down.  That means they had enough evidence to jusitify (and more than likely completely prove) that it was a shill bid.  They can see all the private registration info that we can't . . . they can track the bidding/selling IP address.  

They didn't just take down the auction because they received an email from clarkie that it was a shill - they found their own proof.

No, you not a shill but....STOP IT....your costing me money... :lol:

I'm scared to open this months credit card bill... :lol:

But my hat goes off to BC for catching the shill, I obviously don't have the talent 'cause I looked at his evidence and went 'Huh?',

There was something that I was obviously not seeing.

One must be proud of one's work, be it shilling or detecting shillers.

You have admitted to shilling, and you appear satisfied with that aspect of yourself.  What does that imply about your own self-examination?

I am glad that the Acaeum has a wide variety of personalities who behave in different ways.  And if someone has attempted to persuade you to end an auction early, then that is his right.

If you mean to imply that some Acaeum members are hypocrites, then you may be correct, depending on how you word your definition of that word.  Does that implication have any relevance to your shilling?

If you wish to sow seeds of discord, then you have done your part. Online communities are dynamic, and members sometimes post messages and behave in ways that violate others' code of conduct.  The signal-to-noise ration grows, tempers flare, etc.  Again, this is on par with getting in a bar fight or breaking the speed limit; it's nothing new and happens all of the time.

And as for your impugned honor, shilling is not an honest way in which to conduct an eBay auction.  No one with "honor" shills.
