Does this mean that I qualify to send out irritating emails to sellers telling them my already obvious feedback score,  that I am a toliet paper encrusted powerseller and asking them if I may bid on their auction, where even if they say no, I will anyway? Then after I win the auction, I will demand that they ship the cheapest way possible that also happens to be totally untrackable, so that if I don't like the sellers attitude or if I decided that I may have paid too much that I can just charge back the amount that I paid? :D   Perhaps now if some of you are not careful, I may have to put you on my "Block Wipe" list. :twisted:

Large lot here - perhaps should be in the 'interesting items' thread?

However fyi this lot is being sold on behalf of one 'Maxwell' - you know who I mean of course!

For more information see Dragonsfoot • Information

Should be on the up and up because its through an isoldit but let your consience decide.


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Very interesting indeed.  

I saw only the post-flame flickers of a person named "Wexmall."  Not very pretty.

If he is willing to make restitution, and does so, then why not believe his sincerity?  Granted, I did not get flamed or jerked around by him.

there are a few things in that lot which would be nice to have, but the rest is just samey to me and can pretty much get anywhere if i was inclined to. i aint getting involved in anything to do with him anymore on pure principle - not worth the hassle.

He may or may not be sincere, it pretty much doesn't matter at this point.  I've learned to trust these guys when they go crazy on someone.  Don't buy from him.

Despite the horror of it all, the Acaeum "paladins" are usually misunderstood.  They have an uncanny ability to weed out and vanquish "baddies", but it isn't always pretty to watch.  Part of the job description is being overzealous, ever vigilant, and unrelenting.  

I've often tried to take a more relaxed approach, or give them the benefit of the doubt, and every single time, I have been wrong.  Being the voice of reason just gives you a sore throat, sometimes.  If you want to forgive and forget, go ahead.  Personally, I'm tired of being wrong.  :wink:

(Thanks, since you folks never get thanked for all your hard work.  A lot more people would have been screwed over if you hadn't been there with all your ferocity.  You know who you are; I don't need to mention any names.  Keep up the good work.)

I did ask him that, but he never responded.  He used to reside in Washington State.

A real nailbiter.  Liverpool were all over the place for the first half and I thought we had a real chance.  But Gerrard's 90 minute equaliser was just amazing - and after that I just had a feeling it would go your way.  Great game too.  Normally in cup matches teams play really conservatively - but 3 : 3 plus penalties - wow!

have to say as well tho. total respect to west ham this season. 1st season back in the top flight and they have been brilliant. uefa cup spot and FA cup finalists. superb.

lets see if they can live up to that high standard in the next season - thats normally where the teams really struggle (will be interesting to see how wigan fare too)
