I already messaged him, but only 5 hours left. BTW, the question was from Diamond Dave :roll:



** expired eBay auction **




Well, looks like the cougie won that one, one bid. Did anyone who emailed the seller ever get a reply back?

I did. I warned him about the whole thing, and he was shocked at the history and the lack of Gaypal protection. He read through the entire CougarRetard thread!

This could still end well, even if he chooses to honor Cougie's bid. The key, of course, is the M-bags, which are an unfamiliar concept to many U.S. sellers. The seller should be instructed to ignore all of Cougie's mewling for M-bag shipment, no matter how bad it gets.

If Cougar doesnt rip the guy off then he's onto a bit of a loser.

To pay over $400 for that lot (including shipping), is rather steep. I added it up and wouldnt give more than $200 for it all in.

I can only assume he actually intends it for to be an "M-Bag Job" if he can get it.

Cheers,

I've always felt that one of Cougar's secrets is that he operates at a loss: always has, always will. All you have to do is compare his buying logs with his selling results to see that it's no way to run a railroad.

The M-bag scams help off-set this, of course. I mean, I give the guy a certain amount of credit for his planning ability: win item, obtain untrackable shipping, claim item lost, get money back, trade negatives with the seller, do a mutual withdrawl, re-list items a few weeks later.

I'm not sure why, but this particular one bothers me for some reason. I've already warned the seller twice about Cogue; I'll proably get in some sort of trouble with eBay.  :)

Careful, Al.  You don't want to pull an "Imus", do you?

An American "Shock Jock" who most recently made a racist statement to the Rutgers college basketball team on his radio show.

Interesting that a number of the Rutgers girls are caucasians...one of them from Utah.

I think they objected to being called "ho's"   8)

"Nappy-headed ho" I believe was the term.  Nappy in this case is an adjective modifying "headed".  Nappy is another word for "kinky", or tightly curled.  Therefore, the first part could be (and probably was) seen as offensive to blacks since the majority of blacks are noted for having a naturally kinky head of hair.  The statement stereotypes the black athletes and thus could be considered a racist statement.

"Ho" on the other hand, is offensive to everybody, since it's a slang contraction of "whore".

The whole thing was a very insensitive statement from a very insensitive man.

Even if you didn't take as a racist statement, it was pretty mean-spirited and unprovoked. Imus has pretty much always been a jerk.


Hmm, no, I don't have a gambling problem, I'm winning, and winning is not a problem. That's like saying Michael Jordan has a basketball problem, or Def Leppard has an awesomeness problem. So why don't y'all pour some sugar on that?

If he had said "dizzy sluts" or "gangly war pigs", I'd have been Ok with that, but nappy-headed hos is outrageous! The nerve of him!
