Scroll down past the listings and check out the picture.  Was this ever published and where the heck can I get one???  :D


It probably stayed up because its 2nd edition :)

Wasn't some complaining about where the art has gone to after 1st edition? :wink:

I reported it, and not for the first time.  eBay doesn't seem to care about PDFs.

I'm not sure if that is the case or if it is more because this auction is being sold as a digital item.  Digital items are not covered by paypal or ebay protection so they seemingly have no liability if anything goes wrong with the transaction.

By digital item I mean one that will not physically go in the mail.  All the seller does is either email it to the buyer or sends the buyer a link where they can download it.

Which brings up the question, is it illegal to sell a list of links on where to download the items.  All you are doing is selling the results of your google skills.  Whether the buyer decides to download them is another matter.

Not sure, but I'd say yes.  Under ordinary circumstances, it is not illegal to link to another site.  

However, assisting someone in performing a crime is itself a crime.  Distributing these PDFs is illegal.  Assisting in their distribution by making their location widely known (ie. advertising) might qualify.

I'm sure if the linked files were child porn, instead of something mundane like PDF files, the authorities would be very interested in speaking to the linker, not just the linkee.  :wink:

Sometimes I wonder where eBay's brains are.

There are times when pdf auctions are posted and they get taken down in due process (after being reported). Other times they just stay up.

Apparently, nerds also like to sell illegal products too. :evil:

Then again, judging by his selling success so far, I guess he thinks its okay to try out:

Welcome to eBay

All auctions reported.  What category are you folks using?  I'm going with "Unauthorized photocopies".  They don't seem to have one for PDFs specifically.

I reported all of them twice.  One each under:

Listing Violations > Counterfeits and copyright violations > Other potential infringement > Offering to electronically send or receive copyrighted material

and once each under:

Listing Violations > Counterfeits and copyright violations > Bootlegs and counterfeit media > Media on Recordable formats (CD-R, DVD-R, VHS Tape, etc.)

You can also use the 'adult material accessable to minors' due to the boobious pic :D

In your bloodthirst for vigilante justice all of you jumped to conclusions and made assumptions. In fact Zabe73 is one of the most decent guys you could ever know or meet. I believe one of you Deadlord or yourself BClarkie mentioned you thought so too in an earlier string I read. You forget that behind all those made up forum names and ebay names real human people are behind the keyboard. How many of you took the time to ask Zabe73 about Paradert4? I believe one of you had a posted email that you received explanation. But rather than ask further questions you complain to ebay. Are you trying to cut down the competition so you have more control on your precious market? Well your little niche isn't in the shadows any longer.

You'll probably say "well then why did ebay cancell his account". Ebay, screwed up, made a mistake to sate your cravings to take someone out. They failed in their investigation and I have nothing but disappointment in them.

Further, those threads, I don't remember who said them, about mailing stuff to his home. You guys really show your stripes, doing crap like that is wrong and I'm sure the Postmaster would investigate this site thoroughly. You want to mail crap mail it to me, PO Box 5034 Diamond Bar CA 91765, the postmaster knows me by name there. I'd give my life to Zabe and his family he dosen't deserve this crap nor does Paradert4 nor anyone else in your perceived rightousness. Your all DnD collectors don't forget the fate of the KingPriest in your rightousness.

Lastly, you are all very duplicitous, looks like some of you have sold or bought items from Zabe73. Zabe is good and caring man, yet you have forgotten the face of your fathers and judge without knowing. Zabe I am sure has no ill will towards you. In fact I am sure he would prefer to put this all behind him and I am also sure he would prefer I left you all to your devices. But since Paradert4 spoke his peace I wanted to speak mine. You've awaken my wrath, you've attacked a friend and a good man, as I said a man I would give my life for, he would put this all behind and thus a better man than I. I said my peace, I'll try to say no more. I'll leave you to your devices.


Re-reading this was so much fun.  I love the intro to this post in particular:  Wrong BCLARKIE.  Almost like the poster was waiting for the perfect moment to pounce.  Some of this crap is too funny....I could probably stick the above post in the script of any daytime soap opera and it would fit perfectly with the rest of the overly-emotional drivel that you normally hear on Days of our Lives or Young and the Restless.

Heh, that stuff is pretty funny, especially now when you look back on it.
