Hmm...Ok, I can admit when I'm wrong.  :) He's not jonb. He's Max. I wonder if the 4 years of valuation education was before or after the janitor position at TSR? (Or was it WotC, I can never remember other madman's ravings...) :roll:




If he starts threatening to rape someone's kids and eat their tongues then I will consider that it may be another Maxwell incarnation.  At this point I dont see much correllation other than blind stupidity.

It is somewhat sad that the RPG collecting field has come to the point where we have resellers, people who jack prices, and people who care only about getting the most money for their stuff. It is 99% of the reason I'm done with collecting. The days of trades, and outright gifts are, sadly, long gone. I think this field was much better when there were not so many collectors, there was much more camaraderie. I'm not pointing the finger at anyone in particular, neither creep nor anyone else here, but it just seems the rosy apple of RPG's has gone a bit sour.




Dammit stop moving in on my action. :P  I am still waiting to get paid my $2444.00. :twisted:

With a name like chokensmoke and that post right there, that is definitely Max.

Damn man. Creep, since I'm sure you'll read this - seriously, get some counseling. The desperation for validation is pretty painful to watch, and with that kind of attitude, you can't possibly be a happy guy.



If I were a nicer guy, I'd offer some pity. But I'm not, so I'll just shake my head in disgust.

i wake up this morning and there are two further pages of posts to read. creep? listen chummer....i am happy for you if you're making buckets of $$$ - good on you....but seriously...you have issues.



most on here will tell you that i try hard to stay neutral on things and i at times have defended others pretty much on my own, but one thing i learnt very early in life is that others will treat you as you treat them.



the folks here who post, are a very decent sort and have helped me out countless times, but they also react if someone comes here and calls them out without any justification whatsoever.



they dislike the prices you sell things for, you feel you can justify them because of your vast experience, so there we go. thats all there is to it.



to rant on after that and wtch ppl throw shit back and forth is totally immature and almost saddening to watch. most guys here have been involved in this stuff for like 25-30 years, some more, some less, but the knowledge is there and they utilise it.



this issue has come up before. these guys are collectors. you are not. you just want to make wedges of cash. the two do not relate and never will. simple as that. you will make money on things no matter what and will do whatever it takes to get it - nothing wrong with that and i hold my hat off to you. BUT...it doesnt mean ppl have to like it and most certainly it will be commented upon, and often.



but anyway....i personally, was actually hoping that some sensible debate might come of this - THAT would have been interesting to read, but instead, what comes from it is just some immature ranting, even down to the point of wishing that someone would kill themselves! *shakes head*



must admit i am quite dissappointed. but hey there ya go. for someone so well versed in business, and as you have 22 years experience, an adult to boot, you show very little maturity in discussion - which is also a major part in appraisal too.



i must have missed the point somewhere.



*goes back to eating breakfast, which is far more interesting than reading this any further*

You might want to take at my most recent post in your thread, oh and by the way my statement was just about. I recently sold my dupes of RPGA3. R1, & R3. Oh and for reference moron, you might want to check out this thread before you open your mouth again:

I can confirm you sold you dupes of R1 and RPGA3 because I bought them, maybe creep could buy them from me for lets say $200 each?

I just hope this guy doesn't start the investing joke that ruined the comic and trading card market.  I remember the days of comic collectability when people were paying 3-4 times guide and re-selling higher.  It worked for a while then the market crashed when everybody got into it; there were not enough genuine collectors to keep buying the over priced over printed material.



Do not support creep buy either buying or selling from him, remember we are collectors and not speculators.  Keep your stuff and try to fill holes in your collections from reasonable dealers.



Keep creep out of our hobby, do not let him ruin it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is like watching a car wreck about to happen in front of you......



Some drunken idiot behind the wheel, hell-bent on his own destruction. You just can't take you're eyes away even though you know what's going to eventually happen.



Creep, or whatever you want to impersonate yourself as, I just hope you have stupidity insurance, or can wean yourself off the meds at some stage.



For a supposedly educated person you have a simply stunning grasp on the English language.



As as you stated in your opening (address?), you may bend over backwards for your clients....it doesn't mean anyone here has to bend over forwards for you, or your opinions.



Time to take the hint and peddle your metal elsewhere.

You should change your name to Greed1962.  Just remember that a successful long term business rarely involves screwing everybody you sell to.  There is no honor in price gouging and none of us here appreciate your lecherous presence in the market we enjoy.



I hate to agree with Creep as he's pretty awful but he's correct in his assumption that he can make money overpaying for a lot of this stuff.  He may be shooting in the dark with many of his opening BIN prices but he'll find just enough suckers to make it worth his while I bet.  He'll make money by preying on the ill informed new collectors and by people who are under pressure to buy something quickly (perhaps as a gift or something).  In the process he might cause some marginal short term market inflation for certain rare items he targets (see coug with the H1's) but will not affect the market overall as it's far too vast.  I just hope he runs short on capital and must sell a lot of his stuff at a loss instead of being able to wait for his price.  This will effectively end his experiment.  (we all know that is what it is with the high end stuff)



He obviously cares nothing about the collectors he sells to.  Acaeum members are right to derile him and I for one hope he fails miserably.  I just think there are way too many morons out there for him to fail.

Actually, I have found lots of good people here...and a couple of Acaeum members have made me very altruistic deals.   :D  :D

Warning people about images like that would be a good idea. Folks can get fired for looking at stuff like that at work (accidentally or not).

Agreed.  This is becoming a bigger and bigger problem with this character.  Any help from members would be appreciated.

What the [email protected]# is wrong with you youffie404?  Do you not realize how many people here can easily loose their jobs clicking a link like that?  You just post it with no NSFW warning?  Luckily I didn't have time to surf the Acaeum at work this morning, and clicked that at home over lunch.  If I had been at work, I would have been fired.  I'm putting my wife through grad school, and saving up for a down payment on a house.  ALL OF THAT would have gone right out the window because of you, ASS.  I would have been fired, my wife would have had to drop out of school, and I'd be trying to find a new job with a "FIRED FOR SURFING PORN" on my record (and don't think past employers don't share that info - I've done enough hiring to know they do).
