Radovarl is a self-righteous blowhard ... so I just threw the two words together.


Maybe somebody should PM Radovarlet and tell him that domain name is available!  :P

Serl, I do have one more copy that I haven't made up my mind on selling yet, but my post was in reference to this auction:


** expired eBay auction **


I got an email through Ebay during the auction from Radovarl asking me if I was willing to put aside our past differences here and if I would mind him bidding.  I responded to him that I was in fact willing to let bygones be bygones and would have no issues at all with him bidding on it if he was interested.  This recent attack on me and the one on DF are what I have to show for my willingness to forgive and forget and yet somehow I am the one who is a self righteous jerk and an uptight prick. :wink:

That always cracks me up. "I hate you, I hate you, I ha- ... oh, wait, you've got a pretty item that I need. So nevermind."

So, on top of being a useless forums stalker, Radovarl is also a hypocrite. I'm even less impressed than before ... and I didn't think that was possible.

ghosttouch is a potential buyer.
 
that price is way too much - i get purchases from the US all the time. 29 dollars is probably the most i have ever heard anyone asking for:) It would theoretically be cheaper to buy the three items individually and...

FYI, if you are a seller and have not blocked sir_lance_you_alot_sales , I would suggest that you do it now.   This person was discussed earlier in this thread after a run in bclarkie.    They are everything he said that they are.

The following feedback was left for me concerning this purchase -

** expired eBay auction **


  THANKS FOR SNIPING ME; SELLERS LIKE U MAKE ME SICK

Seems that this person went out of their way to buy an item from me only to leave negative feedback concerning an unrelated auction that I won.

Since then, I have been bombarded with emails from this person.   I do not make a practice of opening emails that do not have a title with it, so I have not actually read them, but I was able to figure out who this was thanks to bclarkie's earlier posts.

My fault for not blocking them, but a fair warning to all.

I have contacted ebay about this user.

I have never hit a woman and probably wouldnt unless my safety was threatened but I might consider smacking the crap out of this nutbag if ever given the chance.  Frankly I would rather deal with cougar than this crazy psychopath.  :puker:

Lovely, they've been blocked.  (Should have done it already, but was lazy.)  We haven't had an attack of the "anti-sellers" lately, that's always good for some undeserved feedback.  I'm going to go through my old feedback and see if I have any I haven't posted for you, try and run that negative off your front page at least.

I guess my advice doesn't carry as much weight as it used to around here. :scratch:

I disagree, Brian.   I actually look for posts like yours so that I can avoid this sort of experience.   I just got lazy.    :oops:

I, for one, appreciate what you do to keep eBay a better place.

Psycho Chick's bid list, should anyone want to ... ahem ... mess around with it a little bit. Not that I would ever advocate doing such a thing. *Cough*

I am an idiot bidder. No, seriously, I am. I don't have a firm grasp of what an item is "worth" other than how much I would spend for it, and a "system" I only haphazardly use to determine "average price" which I gleefully ignore if its something I really want, or that I haven't seen in a while, or if its from someone I trust to not rip me off, which are a few of you (and one brick and mortar store) I recognize on eBay (or have dealt with off eBay.) So, I'm easy to take advantage of, I guess. Not very worthy to be here, that's for sure.

Actually, its probably that I just get excited to find something that I've been looking for. Maybe I need better tools for finding this stuff, so I could be better at it.

Maybe a new thread on that.

I still maintain, my fave is the girl from america who decided to place a winning bid on my ENGLISH copy of the DMG (3.5 so yeah.. heavy). Shipping that royal mail quoted me was about double what the end auction total was and I had to laugh, it would have been cheaper for her to just go down to the store and buy a new copy than import one all the way from the uk!
Anyway, she never payed so I relisted and sold both the DMG and monster manual to a nice english bloke for a much more reasonable postage price.

Serl, you guys absolutely do not belong in this thread.  Even if you were a bit overexuberant in bidding(which seeing your bidding habits, I really don't believe that you are even that), this thread is about Ebay auction wreckers or people out to get sellers for whatever their reasons are.  You guys most certainly do not qualify as that. :)

I think you are being pretty hard on yourself.  I wouldn't call you an idiot buyer but probably just a typical buyer.  Many of us here crawl Ebay way too often, have our searches up the wazoo, etc looking for the absolute lowest price we can get items at.  Personally, I buy a lot of nonTSR D&D items some of which I buy at $100+ an item.  Realistically, there is only a handful of people out there that are even interested in the item and sometimes I am the one craziest to pay the most.  I'm sure there are a number of items in my collection that if I were to sell them, I would not be able to get back what I initially spent on them.

Oh, my mistake. I thought this thread was intended to point out individuals who made exorbitant bids, or did not "get it." While I thank you for your kindness toward me (and I can agree on some levels with it) I do think, at times, I am an idiot bidder. :) Well, used to be, anyway. Upping bids every hour (this was a long time ago) or whatever... now, we've developed a more sound system for it, and we're sure to put a cap on the item's worth.

*butts out of thread*

Perhaps when I put my duplicates up for sale I'll attract one of these same people?
