Andrew and eBay work really quick. I bet the auctions are gone by tomorrow.

Seems someone named PDFkilla is bidding on all the auctions...

Wow, PDfkilla's bids were cancelled. He was called an "antifreetrader" in the explanation. I hope he doesn't resort to drastic measures, such as sniping.......
Perhaps the seller is an Acaeum member? I can't think of any other reason why the seller would cancel the bids, unless he were following this thread.

PDfkilla is a pretty obvious shill name.  I highly doubt they're reading this thread.  Of the 10 or so guys who would be reading this, I highly doubt any of them would sell pdf's.

If you snipe make sure you use a different user name as they can block you from bidding as PDfkilla!

OK, I don't want to drag up old arguments, but hopefully now everyone sees why shill accounts are useful. And this is what I used to use them for...
Fuck it, I'm bidding with my regular account. I'll trust eBay to back me up and remove the inevitable negatives. This asswipe needs to learn a lesson. Free trade. What the fuck is he, a Mexican trying to take advantage of NAFTA? I have almost all the modules he's selling for trade/sale, and I'd probably ask just a little more than the photocopies he's selling.

Ebay won't remove negatives... even if they are an attack on you.

It's a genie they can't let out of the bottle.

Shill or report him.  Leave your good name out of it.

(Or get ebayDeadlord to bid on them!) :)

Thanks, Deadlord.

Same scam as before - this guy is setting up new eBay accounts to avoid feedback hits, and running 1-day auctions to try to avoid being reported.

Haha, thank you for the advice, however it is perfectly legal.  The cd
contains source reference documents, as it is called. It contains all
the information of the books, but in a microsoft word document.  I know
it is legal because i have read the Open Gaming License which defines
it.

Again, thank you for the heads up.

My head's up was that I hoped he lived in some hard to reach country because WOTC and Ebay (well.. probably not ebay) were going to hunt him down and castrate him for doing this.

I also told him to fire whatever lawyer implied he could sell OGL stuff like SOURCE books.  

Then I wondered for a half second.. what if he's RIGHT!?  Nahhh...

OK.  I've contacted Andrew at Wizards of the Coast and he can look into it if he likes.  I doubt he'll find it as amusing as the seller does, though.
