1. The false offer was to see if you had pulled the auctions for a private sale.


You could have just asked, you moron.  Several people did, including at least one person who reads this forum, and I told them all I had received an outside offer.

I didn't expect to be treated a demigod.  All I expected a little common courtesy.  Instead I've been treated like some idiot who needs to be protected from himself, called Stinks (real clever, the last time I heard that one was when I was seven), called a liar, been lumped in with people selling bootleg pdfs, and you're acting like I'm some criminal mastermind here to rip you all off.

Seriously, what's your problem?  What's with the hostility?  Is it sour grapes?  Are you just pissed off because you think I sold it all to someone who's not with the in crowd?  Or are you pissed off because dollar signs flashed in front of my eyes when I mistakenly thought there was a five grand offer on the table?  An offer, I may add, that was quickly followed up by your own little lie offering $500 for Roan Hart alone.

As I said before, I was definitely willing to bend ethically to hustle a better deal, a better deal I thought existed only because of the actions of people on this board, but at no point have I lied to or stolen from anyone, and I try not to treat anyone like an idiot.  Not even you.

Enough already.  Let's move on.

Bottom line, it's not right to pull auctions off eBay to sell privately.  It is against eBay's rules:

Offers to buy or sell listed items outside of the eBay site are not permitted. Offers of this nature are a potential fraud risk for both buyers and sellers and circumvent eBay's fees.

Some examples of offers outside of the eBay site include:

Using member contact information obtained from eBay or using any eBay system to offer to sell any listed item outside of eBay

Canceling a listing to sell to a buyer who became aware of the item through eBay

Ending a listing early to sell the item at a higher price to the winning bidder


Ultimately, you were wrong to cancel the listings to sell outside of eBay.  It pissed people off and justifiably so.  No need to continue the tirade.  A simple admittance of the error and an apology would have probably resolved all of this.

To be honest, I think the part that ebay cares the most about is the circumventing of Ebay fees and their liability.  Don't come cry to us if you get screwed on a bad deal.

I'm sure they have several clauses about selling illegal items such as pdfs that they like to neglect as long as they get their fees.

Good price I thought.

IIRC the last two were $1,601.93 and $1,501.93 back in Feb.  I don't recall those sold in 05.  I reckon prices are (on the whole) stable-ish if slightly down. This one had some pencil marks but otherwise looked in fabulous condition with minimal creasing.  Nice  :D

Yeah, it sounds more to me like they're covering their own backsides than anything else. And I can't fault someone short on cash for not following eBay rules to the letter.
