I hope anyone who is truely angry with me is willing to let by-gones be by-gones.  Hey guys, thanks for the greeting!!


    I don't think anyone here is or was angry with you over anything, the inclusion of you on the list was tongue in cheek and for the "story" only, your business practices are beyond reproach.  Welcome to the forum, if you keep your sense of humor intact you won't be mentioned in the same posts as Cougie or Maxwell or whoever the ass whip of the week is ever again....

I agree totally. :D  I can totally respect a guy who has a sense of humor about himself.

Much appreciated!!  One always wants to be loved . . . (group hug)!!

I figure I gotta laugh at my hobby/collection/therapy.   Its all about a game anyhow.   I think my wife is still lost in the stacks of books in the attic.   Occationally I can hear some mumbling about what she could buy if I actually sold off the collection.   Sigh . . .

Wouldn't "all your b8's belong to us" be closer to the quote?  :P

And I'm not down with coug, he's bidding on every lot I've looked up.  :x

here is a simple solution.

Just a friendly warning M-bags are none trackable and are risky to you the seller because the buyer could just say he didn't get the stuff then do a paypal chargeback; paypal demands you send things va trackable methods to avoid the risk of chargebacks.  Also you might want to look at this oversea's buyers feedback left for others.

half the time after that his bids just seem to stop or disapear all together..... paybacks a bitch..... and the sad thing it wasn't even me who he screwed lol, I am paying him back for what he did other people.

Honestly, I don't know customs rules and shipping overseas, I've only bid on US stuff.  But I'd learn if I was buying from a known acaeum overseas person.  Because I could talk to them via the board. :)

Yup, me all all my B2's, X1's, Basic rulebooks and Monsterous Compendium Binders (of course the damn binders are empty).   If ya hang around the wagon long enough, some of this crap has gotta spill out the windows soon.   If you stop by when I am away, I am sure my family would ahppily let you into the attic to "clear some space".   Where did I put that copy of H1 anyhow . . .

Hey Paul (Guido).

I left feedback (finally) on that problem lot.  I wanted to mention the story, but thought better of it.  The transaction started out rocky, but I have to say, you made good on all promises.  Thanks for that.  

P.S.  Looking at your bidding/selling, I am impressed.  But when do you have time for another job and family?  :wink:


May Eru's light shine upon you always.

I've never dealt with Cougar - his reputation proceeded him, so I never bothered.  What really astounds me is his prodgious bidding - how the hell does he bankroll all those purchases?  Maybe he figures that one copy of H1 he keeps putting up on eBay will cover it all . . .  It would explain why his reserve is never met . . .

As for Maxwell, his behavior here was more than enough to keep me from dealing with him.  I've always made it policy to avoid people who threaten to rape and then kill, or worse still kill then rape others . . .

I always found Game Emporium's prices were always ridiculously high, so I never bothered dealing with them.  

I think Guido is the odd man out in this group.  I've dealt with him a number of times and have always found him a pleasure to deal with.  I can honestly say, I've never stopped to read any of the fiction included in the item descriptions - so I can't comment on it.  Still, I'm always willing to accept anyone's idosyncrasies as long as their honest and professional.

Glad you've joined us Guido.

sorry to bring this thread up once more guys, but i just wanted to mention something i just spotted (which i don't ever tend to look for). i remember bclarkie bringing this up yesterday. i don't mind bidding for things and don;t ever begrudge someone putting a small handling fee on something for stuff, hell everyone does, so thats ok. what does piss me off, is the extent they go to with it.

i have just won a load of items off crazy egor, which fair enough, i got quite cheap (34 items). so i got invoiced and he gave me three shipping options, airmail $84.32 (ins incl.), surface $68.75 (ins incl.) and airmail sack, which i assume is m-bag $59.70 (no ins.)

i picked the last option, cos the items are not expensive, in fact the 34 items add to $46.93, so the shipping is more than the items!!!

however, when i go and look at one of his auctions, which i admittedly didnt notice before, i see the following: "handling is $2 plus $0.90 for each additional item thereafter"... so on this lot, makes a whopping total of $31.70 !!! 8O (which is actually MORE than the feckin shipping charge!!!!!! WTF is THAT all about??!!)

well no i am sorry, but is it just me that thinks that is just totally taking the piss?

i just wanted to let everyone know. just have a care when making a "large" purchase off crazy egor. while he's fine to deal with and you can get "cheap" items from him, once everything is taken into account, it doesnt end up being cheap at all. this is my third purchase from him and will be my last now and my feedbacks will reflect such "when the right time cometh"

Al

ECC/TGE = Scum Bucket
Maxwell/Maxine = Head case
Coug = Shady Dealer
Guido = Different

ECC/TGE wins. Although if Maxwell ever showed on my doorstep and told me that it was him on my steps, I'd have to do a pre-emptive strike on his a$$ to protect myself and my family.


Dave, get the barbarian in the corner a drink, quick!
