I had a look at the auction, and it reminded me of another auction I saw earlier today:



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 44112&rd=1



This one is for an OCE set plus some other stuff, but the wording in both auctions is remarkably similar. As the auctions are being run by different sellers (one in Wisconsin, one in Washington) is it just a case of one seller copying a large chunk of text from an existing auction?

I noticed this, too.  Hopefully the seller copied the parts of the text that he didn't know anything about -- the descriptions of the conditions of the items was certainly different, so that's good.



Regardless, I've bet a good sum of money that the guy's honest.  I will share either my jubilation or my rage with this forum as soon I receive it....

Scott, how did you manage to get it for $776 when the Buy it Now was $999?

Well, I guess it takes a rocket scientist to figure out that the seller lowered the "Buy It Now" price from $999 to $776 to get a quicker sale. You know, you can do that as a seller. Of course someone who said he was leaving just could not stay away.



And seeing that anyone could have clicked on it and bought it for that price...oh well.

ROFLMAO, you crack me up. You whine about everything under the sun, including people who contact and offer outside eBay, and yet this instance is OK, eh? BTW, it was a first printing, and I certainly would have paid the Buy it Now for it. I didn't get the e-mail back from the seller in time confirming the printing. His loss.

If you have issues with me, fine. But I'm sure that some of the Acaeum members prefer not to dig thru whining posts in order to find information and read the posts that are worthwhile. So in the future, why not limit your complaints to e-mail? You already know my address, and I'd rather spare the forum the personal beef you seem to have with me.

Indeed, the seller lowered his buy-it-now price, and without any encouragement from me.   As a matter of fact, all I asked him in my e-mail was to confirm the printing by looking at the copyright page.

I made my statement because I knew exactly what you were implying:

"Foulfoot must have e-mailed him and tried to do an end-around just like I did...and if  what I did was wrong, according to some here, so was what Foulfoot did."



How do you know he contacted him to sell the item at a lower price?! Gee, you do not, and guess what, Foulfoot did not contact the seller to reduce his price. You just immediately ASSUMED that he did and tried to call him out in a public forum.



Deadlord, before you go accusing people of something, why don't you get your facts straight, or at least try to get some facts; just as I waited until the overwhelming evidence was in before calling you a shill bidder.



You really do not get it do you? That does not surprise me since you are so morally and ethically corrupt you belong in prison and not walking the streets.

Q:What does it say at the top of the page?





Perhaps for the benefit of some people we can change it to





The Moanaloteaum

Ebay Griping Forums

That was 10 days ago. Who's gonna believe a word of what you write now? You have no honor at all?

1. I don't care whether Scott e-mailed him to lower the price, or took him out to dinner and a movie, or what. I wasn't implying anything. I have no issues with contacting a seller. YOU do. I was just curious as to whether I goofed not using the Buy it Now and taking a chance. The seller hadn't gotten back to me at the time I made the post.



2. Jail? Wow, you need to work on your priorities. I suppose parking in a handicapped spot warrants the electric chair, right? Jaywalking=firing squad?



3. Sorry, but I considered the situation and I refuse to deny myself the chance to talk to and interact with the decent people in the forum. I didn't bother YOU with any posts, I was directing my post to Scott (unless you've taken over as Foulfoot and are running the Acaeum. Heaven help us.....)

YOU started this shitstorm, not me. I'll tell you what, if you ignore my posts (i.e. act like you don't know me), I'll ignore your posts. Same for the few others whiners. He's right, this is becoming a whine emporium, and it's not fair to everyone else. Everyone knows everyone else's opinion by now. Grow up and let it go.

a bit negative in here, so i'd like to ask a question to the forum:



with all of the the stuff that was in that Brown Box lot, and with the Brown Box being a first printing, how much would you have been willing to pay?



me - $900, easy.  Maybe $1100, depending on condition.



anyone else?

BTW, you could tell it's a first printing because the covers were a different

kind of paper than the later printings: they used hard, smooth, almost shiny

card stock.



Congrats to Foulfoot on the good catch.  Maybe he can update the Chainmail

page with a picture of what a 1st printing of the 3rd edition looks like (not

spiral bound?)  And that mint Greyhawk 1st is a much nicer example than what

the gallery shows at the moment.

I would have paid the $999 Buy it Now.

I am going to make one last post to Deadlord...and then I am going to drop the subject...until he puts his foot in his mouth again.



You call me a whiner when you still have a subject up that reads:

"Never Ends..."



Wow, he is not only a thief, but a hypocrite. Ahh well, happy thoughts, happy thoughts indeed. Ten days without Deadlord is better than no days without him, I guess.



To all who use this forum, I apologize for any needless clutter I may have caused with my posts.
