Well...all of my English real estate information comes from an American television show called House Hunters, which has house hunting shows based in the Old Country once in a while.  :)

I gather that real estate prices are a lot higher in England than in most parts of the US.

Also, US neighborhoods (at least in the West) seldom have a row of houses all of the same design....a rather odd-looking design to American eyes.  8O  (Although, possibly it is the distortion of Google Earth's perspective that makes it look so odd.)

By the way, when I rotate the image a bit to look in the front of the house I think I can just make out Cougarrinard recycling packaging material and re-using postage stamps behind one of the front windows.   8O

The Ctards house is a terrace (I've driven nearby for my work) and is in a shat hole of an area in Portsmouth....(which itself is a shat hole!)  :lol:

I'd like to think that is not representative of ALL UK houses, but yes, the 'Eastender/Coronation Street' style of housing is very commonplace throughout the country due to space and the age they were built  8)

However, the new places now going up (in every square inch of grass it seems) are a new design and style, but that seems to be the 'new' style being fired up everywhere

Maybe this has to deal with the whole business/legal reasons:

ashmire13 do you know of it or have any insight about it?

Maybe he is running his ebay scamming under a gov issued grant/tax break.

Hmmm....

I don't offhand, but I know that a while back all UK (possibly world) ebayers had to register if your sales were business or private. I am assuming, due to the high quantity Ctard pumps out, that he has to register as a business obviously.

With that in mind, there has to be an address recorded for this. Hence the shat hole in Portsmouth. This would also suggest that it is his main address where he operates everything from.

I'm pretty sure gyg or . would be able to elaborate more on the business/private seller change a while back, as it may have impacted them more than me.

I'm pretty sure it all stems down to where your main income comes from and if you are working and then selling above £xx on ebay regularly, then you have to register this with the tax offices. Therefore as Ctard can't get a proper job, he needs to register as a business...

But I would say with 99.9% certainty that the Ctard does not have 3 houses. Unless you count his brothers/sisters/mothers/fathers (delete as appropriate) which he also shares a bed with...  :lol:

Cheers
Dave (not the same as the Ctard!!)  8O

A new seller in the US didn't ship to Coug.

So he negged him.  Better a neg than a rip off.  Whew! :wink:

The only way Diamond Dave has three houses is if they're small, green, and sitting on St. Charles Place. Or maybe Marvin Gardens ...

I stumbled across this gem recently -

http://odd74.proboards.com/index.cgi?bo ... hread=2404

Buyer rejoices at getting something highly collectible from Coug for less than anticipated.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Yep...

Not so sure. The listing only got 9 hits, and I know most here avoid his auctions. Bound to happen once in a while.

TBH, if I had a copy of FFC with 'significant mold spots' on the first five or six pages, I'd be happy to get £15 for it. Especially considering a NM copy resells for about $30. Condition is everything. It's only in playable condition.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

That's almost certainly the one cougarrinard bought recently as part of a large lot with several moldy items (including a FFC):

More like $50-60 despite condition.

I meant £ and not $ when I said 30.  :oops:
So a moldy FFC is worth pretty much the same as say a VG/EX copy?!
That's a sad day for collecting, but probably reflects the quality of Arneson's writing. FFC is a good read, but not anything that stands out from the crowd. He wasn't perticularly talented at the adventure thing.

No that one was an exception, but I chalk that up to it being from Coug.

I'm just referring to the fact that the item had significant mold on it, which was somehow deemed not worthly of mention in the auction.

Returned modules register as they weren't what I ordered and am having trouble getting money back because he won't inform paypal that he has the books! I checked with post and have written confirmation from them which I have sent to paypal, hopefully I can get my money back now. I learnt my lesson the hard way, oh well.

Is this guy changing back to one of his old Ebay IDs now?




** expired eBay auction **




I like how every issue has the same photo...



SORRY THE SCAN IS NOT OF THE ACTUAL ISSUE NUMBER  BUT IT WOULD TAKE  WEEKS TO SCAN ALL THE DIFFERANT COVERS, AND UPLOAD.

Thats him alright... same location, very similar layout, same crap items and descriptions...

Interesting that he has kept this ID low for the past few months. I wouldn't be surprised to see some sort of scam develop further over the next couple of months and sacrifice the account feedback.  :roll:
