True.  I didn't see his name among the bidders, so does that mean that he didn't bid at all or that he had an American contact bid for him?

I suspect he'll bid, but it'll be closer to the end of the auction.  

And I agree that this particular incident was a battle win for Cougie but the war is clearly engaged which means a tougher road for him, and I think that's all we can expect.  There have been numerous knock-out blows discussed(lawsuits, banning, even deadly force, etc...), and I think the wiser of us have realized he can only be endured and reduced but not knocked out of Ebay until he dies or makes a very stupid mistake.  It's possible he'll move on, but I don't personally predict that.

Or, Cougie is waiting to snipe. I don't think that auction had ended yet, but when I saw the $200 shipping, I just stopped.

Road Trip!  The seller can arrange a local pick-up; how far is Connecticut from NY?  An hour or two?  Well, OK, probably more, but certainly not $200 worth of gas . . .

Hehe, from where I am in NY... Connecticut is more like 16 hours away. Easily more than $200 worth of gas to get there and back, and that assumes the address is right on the border.

3 hours to Foxwoods for me, or 2 if my brother drives.

24-hours one-way according to Yahoo.  1600 miles divided by 20 MPG = 80 gallons times $3/gallon = $240 one-way.  Maybe if I drive there and start selling the items on the way back home . . .  :D

That does make me wonder if driving to much closer destinations is feasible as part of a weekend trip.

The money wouldn't be the concern for me, it would be the time.

Deadlord39 and I are practically neighbors.

I'm located in southern Maine and Mapquest tells me it's only 2 hrs and 45 minutes to the seller's location.  Looks like I should over bid cougie's high bid by the $200 shipping cost.  I make trips to Mass anyways and could just back my truck up to their door, load up and go.  Might be worth it just so cougie doesn't get it.  Then I can part it all out to Acaeum member's and no one would have to worry about M-Bags!   :lol:

And to make the bid a little more palatable, Acaeum members could tell you how much they'd be willing to buy this or that from the lot off of you(or the winner).  It would mean less up front capital from you and guarantee sales going into the auction even before it was over.  It's up to you, of course, to accept or reject any offers.  Anything to motivate you or anyone else to keep Coug from winning, or at least keep him from winning it easily.  I don't mind if he loses a bunch of money because of his pride. :twisted:

Well,

Deadlord39 and I could join up to defeat the evil cougie.  He's got the money, I've got the time.

He could hire me to be the delivery guy.  He bids and wins the ebay auction.  I drive from ME to MA to pick up the stuff.  On the way back home, I go through NH and drop off the lot.  We keep the goods out of cougie's hands.

Not sure if this plan would be cheaper than the estimated $200 media mail shipping rate that was quoted.  But he could get it faster and do his part to fight the good fight against the cougie-so it might work.  Deadlord39 are you reading this?

I asked the seller about picking it up. From where I work, it's actually about an hour drive, and I might be able to meet him halfway. If he's amenable to it, I'll bid on it, I guess........
Thanks for the offer though, BS! Where in Maine are you?

Coug never even bid.  Evidence he indeed skims this thread regularly.



And why does every bidder in the bid history except the winner have 3 asterisks in the middle of their Ebay User Name?

$1040.00 was not a bad price for this lot, especially if they picked it up locally.  Is jastner an acaeum member? :?:

** expired eBay auction **

Yes, DM Dave did bid, he is #4 on the list with the bid of $649.  Jastner is the bidding ID of the reseller Intelligator:



http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.d ... llFeedback



He has both IDs signed up here, but never poster under the Jastner one and only posted a few times under the Intelligator one and its been a whitle since he logged in here under either ID:



Jastner



Intelligator



As far as the hidden IDs goes, thats been in place for about a year now.  When Ebay first made the change you would only see Bidder1, Bidder2, Bidder3, etc.  In the last couple of months they changed it to reflect it with 2 digits from the bidders ID scrambled uyp with the *** instead. Its much better this way, as it helps provided security for the bidders, but on the other it also helps find shilling for people on the look out for it.  Also, after a while you start to be able to tell who is who based on feedback and what not without being able to see the full user ID. :wink:
