Well, I do bid occasionally on his stuff when he doesn't have a BIN and the lowball bid is there.  I figure one of two things will happen:  

1.  I'll actually get the stuff, and cheap.
2.  I just contributed a bit of cash to the "negative feedback fund".  Too bad there's no tax receipt, but it's a good cause all the same.

Either one I'm fine with.  ;)

As long as the negative feedback fund isn't a whopping $150 or so.  But then you still are doing business with a liar and a thief, something I just can't bring myself to do.  If they guy had walked into 2-3 Acaeum members houses and taken money off their dresser, we would be calling the police on the guy.  But because he steals through ebay everyone just kind of shrugs their shoulders and chalks it up to experience.  It reminds me of the penalties for vehicular homicide until just a few years ago.  I could be cleaning my gun while drunk and accidentally kill someone, and I'd get about 2-3 years in prison.  But if I got drunk and ran over a kid in my car, I'd get a suspended sentence and 10 years probation.  Thankfully that has changed.  Hopefully someday we'll view internet criminals the same way and not give them free pass after free pass when they steal seemingly without penalties.

Indeed!  I will not buy anything from this guy, no matter how cheap, considering how blatantly and egregiously he lies and steals.  I'd rather give my money to someone else.

Yes, there's all of that, and I agree.  However, I think the worst legacy this putz could leave is to have driven wedges among the members of this community.

Well, I don't think that's going to happen.  We don't all necessarily agree on the finer points, but we're probably more united than ever. ;)

I admit I bought stuff from him in the past under his other two identities not knowing anything but it was stuff I wanted.  THe last item I got was at the start of his Game Emporium incarnation, it took over one month to reach me and I got it for $10.00 (Dwarves of Rockhome).  I feel lucky to not have been ripped off towards the end of his reign but I will never take that chance again.

I will never under any circumstance bid on one of his items!

I wish there was a banned seller list on my account, I could add more than a few bad sellers to it.

i would like that blasted lands and that kobold hall, but is it worth what he is BIN'ing it for? not that i would entertain him of course, but it would be nice to know, for when i am ready to go and get a hold of em.....

Hey, now maybe I'm missing something here, but if he has sold this item before (numbered 305/1000), then surely ebay/Paypal have been involved in compensation?! for this in the past.
Is this not an auction that he can be finally stopped with?!  Who has bought this before???
OK, so I'm probably being naive, but this is just wrong.  With the evidence of previous auctions on this unique item, they must act!!??
Don't tell me I'm living in cloud cuckoo land..... I already know  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

It took some digging through this thread, but I found it:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 01508&rd=1

That about sums it up. But interestingly enough the one listed in that auction is listed as #205, unlike the one up for auction now listed as #305:

Oh, and did anyone notice good ole jonb's shipping costs are increasing? It will only cost you $7.00 for shipping on this module. :roll:  Then again it says in 2 places $4.00 for shipping, but in the  :roll: actual shipping description it says $7.00.
