Is this an abreviation of 'Deadlord'?
Or don't you know how to spell 'dude'?

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhhhhhh I am so scared for doing nothing wrong. OK MORON WHAT ARE ALL MY ACTIVITIES? OH YOU MEAN WHEN I WALKERD ACROSS THE STREET AND WAS JAYWALKING OR DO YOU MEAN WHEN I YELLED AT MY KID? GET A LIFE MORON QUIT CRYING BECAUSE YOU DIDNT LIKE MY PRICES
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Max, my quibble is not with your prices it is with your integrity. I can more than afford your prices and even the overpriced shipping. My girlfriend and I each make over six figures and I have substantial play money I can spend as I wish. My issue and one of concern, being that I have oversight into legal practices and ethics of a fortune 500 company, is your behavior as part of the e-bay community. A community I have a vested interest in. When a community member misrepresents himself in my opinion; I have an obligation to leave negative feedback. When he further makes threats and vulgarity I further feel I need to report that individual to the community. I have not slandered you I have only shared what you have done and only the facts. I have not asked others not to bid on your auctions only informed them that if they choose to do so, do so but with knowledge of who they are dealing with. Lastly I have never attacked you personally as you have done so with threats and vulgarity.

Or Love is lacking in intelligence,
 Or to the height of cruelty attains,
 Or else it is my doom to suffer pains
Beyond the measure due to my offence.
But if Love be a God, it follows thence
 That he knows all, and certain it remains
 No God loves cruelty; then who ordains
This penance that enthrals while it torments?
It were a falsehood, Chloe, thee to name;
 Such evil with such goodness cannot live;
And against Heaven I dare not charge the blame,
 I only know it is my fate to die.
 To him who knows not whence his malady
 A miracle alone a cure can give.
                                                  Cervantes-Don Quixote

And I win. I TOLD you there would be another post from you. Glad to see you back, we need someone to be low man on the collecting totem pole here. Bring up the rear, Maxie. We all trust you, being so honest and reliable and all. From what we are told, you are very dedicated. You never leave your friend's behind.
I haven't had time to send you a picture of the den, but I think Harami has a picture of the Prismatic Wall. Ask him for it.
Shouldn't you be out making $85 an hour as a journeyman HVAC tech?

That's eight posts in three-plus hours from a guy who told us he was "never posting again."

Maybe you should go back and edit that statement, huh, Max?

Two recent purchases from them were way off of their online descriptions. One was described as shrinked, but turned out it wasn't; the other was a "true first print" PHB that turned out to be a 6th printing.

They were nice enough about refunds, though.


Yeah they got me too--I even emailed and told him I was surprised and doubted they really had a Shrink Wrapped Basic set (The one with the Red Dragon, the Wizard and the fighter) I guess you call it the 1978 version? I dont know--well, it really was--but not shrink wrapped and not in mint cond. But it was better than I had hoped for I guess. I'm still learning--but it seems I'm getting burned constantly! :oops:

I apologize to anyone who took my comments as bragging and may have been offended as such; the point is through my experience with Maxwell and one Maxwell continues to miss is his integrity. Max you felt for some reason I was too cheap to pay for your overpriced shipping. It is not being that I was not being cheap it was because you were not being upfront and honest in your dealings. I would humbly pay overpriced shipping if I wanted something severely enough, its an open market economy. What I was trying to get across to you is that it is not the money it's the ethics. And ethics is part of my work, something you fail to understand. Your starting to be a bore now. Ciao all, until later.

Well, he can't call it Castle Greyhawk, but Castle Zagyg, part I: Yggsburgh is about to be released.  There is a sample of it here and an overview of the entire eight books that are making up the project here.  This is being written up for the Castles & Crusades game system, but can very easily be ported over to D&D or AD&D without any difficulty.

How about posting YOUR real name so we can all find out who you really are?

Oh by the way, where's my R1 you promised?

Ahh damn.  I forgot.  You refunded the money instead of fulfilling your end of the bargain you made.  And you wonder why everybody here is peeing in your pool.

Someone's going to whip you with an ugly stick, and fast I would think.

Remember everybody, to read all ebay posts that really grab your attention as "sly" "sneaky", and "underhanded". By friday afternoon say around 6PM the voting shall start to see who will be the "Shadiest Seller" of the week!!!! If the choices become to hard to make , we can always invent a completely new title, such as "Slimiest Seller" or Dirtiest Dealer" that sort of thing. HAHAHA! This should make for a good laugh!

a. buy his own lots to increase his pathetic feedback.
b. boost auction prices.

Be warned. He has porked Jocelyn and a few other sellers. I'm going to report him to eBay.


*****literally jumping into the fray, pushing folks out of the way****

For the record, I also figured that Max was shilling his own auctions. :evil: :evil:
As a matter of fact I figured it a long time ago. I addressed it directly without naming any names not to long ago on February 2nd, because I didn't want to start accusing folks from this forum without 100% proof, however after this last exchange I AM NOW POSITIVE. Here is the post:
bclarkie wrote:Can anyone think of good reason why, if a seller was going to shill his own auctions if he would find some benefit to have the shill bidder win several of them? I have noticed a relatively new seller on EBay, that seems to have this 1 bidder, bid on a majority of his auctions that he lists. Now that in itself certainly doesn't indicate a shill, but the problem I keep running into is that this "bidder" ONLY bids on this one sellers auctions and. That to me is what SCREAMS to me shill. The only thing that I can't figure out though, is that the bidder has won many of this sellers past auctions(lets say more than 9), which really throws a monkey wrench into my thinking. Granted the auctions won were not high value auctions, but still could it be. Thoughts anyone?


I happened to notice that this tommy9896 User ID bid on and won a lot of MAX's auctions. The problem is he never bid on anybody elses. I mean
NO ONES!!!!! This "bidder" still has yet to bid on anyone elses auctions except MAX'S since. Now today MAX in his post has basically outed himself through his own post :?: :!: Deadlord made a passing refernce to him shilling his auctions and MAX comes out and "conviently" guesses the guy :?: :!: :

maxwell wrote:Had to respond to the dudlord- So how is it I shilled auctions? Got any PROOF IE irrefutable proof. I am sure you refer to tommy 9896. Guy bought alot from me and paid too. Still owes some money but a good buyer. Liked my stuff. So is that all you got?

So DUD prove I have a shill account with real actual PROOF- NOT SPECULATION. DO YOU HAVE PROOF? VIDEO MAYBE? Wheres your proof jackass?


even though it is plainly obvious, MAX I hate to break it to you, but nobody mentioned the name TOMMY9896 except you :?: :!: That my friend is called a FREUDIAN SLIP :!: :!: :!: :!:

Sniper, you're cool here in my opinion.  I've already gone around and around with Mr. THC over there regarding his lack of both honor and integrity, and on that front will continue to nail him every chance he gets on it.  Who knows, perhaps if I continue harping on the topic I'll get an R1 shredded and pissed on by a cat.

Hey Trav, Sorry to say, but I am pretty confident that MAX sold your R1 in one of his auction postings:
cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... eName=WDVW

It is in the third picture down on the right. Once again something that I figured out a long time ago, but didn't say anything, but I just can't stay neutral any further............

BTW, I have a sneaking suspicion that imperial_sniper is an alter ego of a current Acaeum member :wink:

It wouldn't surprise me if Mr. THC went for greed instead of honor.  After all he does have to buy dime bags every so often.

Sorry to disappoint you all, I am not Traveller nor any recent member of the forum. I have visited the Acaeum on occassion but only recently joined when Maxwell, aka (oh I do think it would be poor form to post his real name and address, I'll keep it in my pocket for now), harangued me and my kin. It was only after his ranting was to stop on his "Who is this" thread that I decided to make an appearance.

Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow
of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: he hath
borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how
abhorred in my imagination it is! my gorge rims at
it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know
not how oft. Where be your gibes now? your
gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment,
that were wont to set the table on a roar? Not one
now, to mock your own grinning? quite chap-fallen?
Shakespeare-Hamlet
