I may advocate the use of vigilante justice, but other than picking up speeding tickets, I have never broken the law. There is a fundimental difference between holding an opinion and commiting a crime. One is permitted under the law in democratic countries and the other is not.

I am sure that both Brian and Malc offer a full and unquestioning refund to all sellers who report that something they bought was never received, and I am sure they both run businesses with the utmost honesty and integrity. I run my businesses with the same level of customer service, honesty and integrity as you do.

To brand someone a thief on the back of opinions they hold is unjust. Especially if you will not back those accusations up with facts. I do not expect people to hold the same opinions as I do, and I welcome it when I am challenged to justify my position and explore their validity and logic. That is how we learn. Labelling me 'naive' or 'ignorant' may be warranted. Labelling me 'fascist' may also be appropriate. But labelling me a thief is not, whether that be a direct accusation, or an impled one.

Personally, I have no issues with Ian dealing with our shipping pools this side. We've also arranged private deals as a result and I have no concerns in this at all. And tbh, I very much doubt I'd have issues with anyone on this site that visits regularly and have bought from the UK, US and Canada as a result.

I would not trust the Cougar as far as I could kick his nether regions, (or buy anything from him all the time I draw breath), but it would seem that a few other members here in the UK have had no issues with him.

I would not consider Ian and Cougar in the same class and whilst I totally respect Ian and Brian, I think their moral views are more of a contrast and causing discussion/friction than the actual event now.

The Coug has also started a third seller account now, still selling the same old, but at different P&P rates in an attempt to draw more people in. Even his new ID takes the piss! But having checked, briefly, the ebay rules, it seems that they aren't bothered with multiple account holders.



BTW, with Spring/Summer approaching, can anyone suggest a dealer in shades...

:wink:

Ditto.

I've had fine trades/reshipment deals with Ian in the past and we're in process of another right now.  I have no doubt it will go fine as well.

Thankyou to the recent posters for moving this thread forward.
In sum, it sounds like the arguers are empassioned about their points of view--convictions are great.
I just wanted to propose my theory:
I wonder if John & Lisa weren't a couple at one point running their enterprise together, and now Lisa's running the latest version of business?
This is a speculation. What do you think?
BTW: Is Cougar an eBay seller by the same name?

puter, there's a thread a way down, Cougarrinard and his other account names. Best advice, steer well clear from buying from or selling to!

Thanks Ash for the tip. I'm still getting to know this site, and in the meantime, I found the thread.
Ah yes, I remember it now--the wild spellings and fractionated syntaxes.
I've avoided purchasing because of these. It seems to me like a lack of credibility when a seller doesn't language it right.
I also avoid purchases from eBay sellers who only show pictures. My thinking is that the written item description is a sort of (obviously non-legal) contract, going with the time-honored principle of keeping one's word.
Is there a thread for T&T? Oops, I should probably look first.
Gary

So,  I won this item (with thanks to a heads-up in Interesting Items)




** expired/removed eBay auction **




I just received the refund since the item is 'missing'.



I guess I'm out of luck (easy come, easy go) but I'm very curious if T&T has had underpriced BINs go 'missing' before?

I'm wondering how easily a person can "block?" a seller's listings from showing up on an eBay search. Is it a simple adjustment and can anyone tell me how to do it?
(It would save me a lot of time ploughing through listings belonging to a seller I'm not interested in dealing with.)

No such luck Gary.  Ebay doesn't give buyers a list of blocked sellers.

Not wih an underpriced BIN, but I did win a copy of Dungeon #1 a while back for about $4. It was refunded because they discovered it had been 'damaged'.
They seem to have a bad reputation with a lot of complaints and horror stories on the boards. Stay well away from them.

probably my own stupid fault for not asking the question, but as per the 'Is this mold' thread, this book arrived today and its somewhat stained in places.



Just trying to attach pics to the the post here and waiting to hear back from the seller. Not sure if they are truly 'Shady' but looking now, the auction picture is taken to prevent seeing the damage...  :?

That does look like some possible moisture wrinkling at the bottom of the book. Does it smell? And what do the stains look like?

Couldn't see how to add pics to the actual post, so I've had to add them to my pics.

Any advice is appreciated. At the moment, I'm thinking of returning it for a refund, as my hands just feel unclean after touching it.   8O

And also how does it taste? :)

Ok, that's a nasty joke, but seriously, that looks pretty bad. I'm no mold expert, but I don't think it's mold, though. I wouldn't keep it, just out of principle. No way that is "Good used condition". Unless the seller thought it tasted good and he was using it for roast beef dip or something.

:lol:   not keen on tasting!

I'm gonna wait for the seller to reply to my first question and then ask for a return.

Whats the normal procedure for returning, should I get a refund before sending it back?

They did charge me the exact P&P, so I don't think they are rip offs in that respect, just dubious on their item descriptions.

It's been a while since I've returned anything (thankfully) so I'm not sure what the Paypal's/Ebay's protocol is. I'd just make sure to have some sort of tracking at minimum for it.
