Hi,

last time he contacted me (coupla months ago) it was thru Ebay. God knows why. Its not as tho my email address is a secret.

I assume that he just spends most of his life on Ebay.

Cheers,
Malc

Another way to interpret that comment is that he means physical harm.  Perhaps we should contact the authorities and have them investigate.  Anyone with three houses and thousands of eBay sales certainly has the financial means to pull off his threat.  And since this thread has been going on and on for years and years, he might have finally snapped.  And the logical place/person to release that pent up anger might be none other than our beloved administrator.  

While I don't recommend taking most of what he says seriously, it might prove interesting to actually take this very seriously and see what happens.  For once, let's rally to our friend's aid and encourage him, for his own personal safety, to write a brief e-mail about this threat along with a convenient address and make sure the threat is just mindless babble.  If we follow through on this seriously, it might actually become interesting in the best kind of way.

Here's the link to all the police jurisdictions in England.  Simply click on the region where any threat comes from, and you can access that jurisdiction's web-site which includes police contact information.

Threatening people is bad, and we're not going to stand for it!


Let's not go down this road please.  Just because someone said he has three houses doesnt necessarily mean that he does.  I dont see him as having the financial means to buy a pint much less have enough money to threaten anyone seriously.

It's one thing to make fun of his business practices and apparent lack of intelligence or ethics as it pertains to selling on Ebay.  It is another matter entirely to try and raise a stink with the local authorities without good reason.  And there is none...there is no implied threat in that email whatsoever.

Oh my, Dayecock. Almost forgot that moron.

So let me understand, 90+ pages in Coug is JUST getting steamed?  Dang he IS a slow learner...or reader....or whatever....

Things must really be getting bad in Cougie land to lash out at his friends and supporters like this.

And the description is just a clusterf**k of stupidity:

DM Dave wrote:VGC EARLY BOOK, A TRUE ORIGINAL YES BEFORE THE HARDBACKS THERE WERE SOFTBACK PHB'S , HERES ONE, THE SPINES IS TAPED & SHOWS WEAR & IS MISSING SMALL SECTION BUT PAGES ARE VGC EVE NCOVER GOOD FOR AGE.




We don't even need to get into the fact that he still trying to claim that it's in "VGC" even though it's missing pages and the cover is taped together.  :roll:  



Spelling, grammar and even remotely close to proper sentence structure just tossed right out the freaking window.   Seriously, does he ever even bother reading what he writes? Or is this actually the result of him proof reading and it's actually even worse before he does it?  



Let me guess Dave, you do that on purpose just to see if we on the forum here notice it, right?  :roll:

Come on guys, give Dave a break. I think he means well.

Ok, never mind. He's an idiot.

The domain mentioned on the last page is available.  C'mon, don't wonder.  It's not hard to check these things.  Google is your friend.

The part I found interesting is the notion that any world-reachable email address is "private".   :lol:

cougarrinard just bought my NM Silver Anniversary Box Set for $90.

He got a really nice deal (IMO).



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3DSelling



This was my second listing of this Box Set and his bid was the only one.

I suppose he will re-list it in his store for $150 or more and will probably get it too.



After the low final bid ($89) during the first listing, I would not have even relisted it the second time, if I did not need the money for the NTRPGCON in June.  :(

I honestly did not want to see it go for that much. :cry:



However, if I had thought ONE DOLLAR more was all that it would go for this time, I would have simply offered it to the highest bidder last time.

At least I know him personally..... plus he is local to me. :evil:

What an idiot I am.  :oops:

Or he will get it and then leave you a neg...or just say NSAD and simply not pay you.  He knows EXACTLY who you are and where you post....why on earth would he not simply screw you over? Look for the email from him directing you to ship it to his US contact...which BTW is in violation of Ebay rules and could result in him saying the item never arrived.  This is Cougie, for God's sake.  You know exactly what he's capable of.....



How was he not blocked?????



I would have given you a buck more than whatever Cougie was offering...

First off I have no idea how to block anyone.
Second, he bid with 2 minutes left.
I had no way (that I know of) of stopping it at that point.

If you click on the "Account" tab in My Ebay, there is a long list of links on the left hand side.  Under the "My Account" tab, there is a link that to "Site Preferences".  

If you click on that link, it will take you to another page which brings up a list of different things under "Selling preferences".  The 8th selection down is "Buyer Requirements" and a small link that says "Show".  If you click the "Show" button, it will open up more information including an additional link that says "Edit".  

If you click on 'Edit", it will take you to yet another page.  The first thing that you should see on that page under Buyer Requirements is this:

"To allow specific eBay members to bid on or purchase your items regardless of any requirement(s) you select, add them to your buyer requirements exemption list"

Of which the " buyer requirements exemption list" is another hot link.  

Click on that link and it will take you to a page called "Buyer/Bidder Management" under which the first section says "Blocked Bidder/Buyer List".  When you click on that hotlink, it takes you to a final page where there is  an open box for you to put in the buyer(s) names that you want to be permanently blocked from ever bidding on your auctions.

It sounds more complicated than it is, but once you get into My Ebay, you shouldn't have any issues doing it. :)

----------------------------------------------------------------------

With all that said, you can always just f**k him and refuse to sell it to him.  

He'll run through his normal little kitty hissy fit that we've seen hundreds of times now, spamming you with numerous incoherent emails, threatening to get you kicked off of Ebay trying to bully you into the sale.   After that doesn't work, he will then leave you a Neg(it's almost like a badge of a good Ebayer these days) and file a NPS against you, to which Ebay will warn you against doing it in the future, but nothing else.

In the end, you'll be out a few bucks for the Ebay fees, you'll have a Neg(joining a long list of fine Ebayers who had the misfortune of having to deal with Cougar) and you'll have a warning from Ebay, but that's it.

You need to have blocked everyone we've ever talked about on the Shady Dealer list...including nuts like Scubabri420, etc.  Selling to guys like this is worse than just tearing your item up and flushing it down the toilet...I'm not joking. It's basically like turning off your anti-virus filter and surfing the net if you don't block certain bidders....

Ebay does make it hard to find the blocked buyer/bidder list, but that's because they don't give a damn. They make money whether you get fucked over or not.

BClarkie's advice is pretty good.  You may be one of the few that doesn't get stung...I notice he only left three negs last month, and only had a couple left for him, maybe he's mellowing....but Coug is nothing if unpredictable.  The sale may go through fine, or you may get a chargeback in a couple months.  Chances are it'll be ok, but you never know.  He reads this pages religiously and may just screw you over for a laugh now that he's seen you post; or he may pay quickly and give you great feedback just to "stick it" to all of us.
