harami2000 wrote:(carried over from previous page as "warning")


He doesn't intend to sell to the highest non-reserve bidder at a sensible price.
I can't remember whether the copy he "recentley purchashed" off eBay was the relatively sensible-priced one or the other which just tipped a high reserve.

Either way, he basically wants someone to help rectify his own purchasing errors. The current deliberate lie about the reserve price (trying to trap a last-minute prod into a legal sale) is just the latest shameless episode in his previous catalog of what a less charitable person might call cry-baby tactics.

(JMO, of course ;)).

Dear harami2000,

I noticed this is the second time you tried to bid within .01 of my auction. you must know eyeamgod. whats you fuckn problem dick. why do you keep fuckn with my ebay. Ive just reported eyeamgod for harassment and now im reporting you FOR THE SECOND TIME. GET A FUCKN LIFE PENCIL DICK!

Thank you,
keepontheborderlands


<....>

Charming young fellow, I'm sure...


Ha! Only now do I find out he "reported me for harassment" the previous time for bidding one cent under his reserve!!

First email I've EVER received from him; unlike Frank I wasn't even asked whether I wanted to buy at $299.99.

Hey, ho!


p.s. And neither does he mention his lie about having changed his reserve price to $290 despite still having $300 stated in the auction?

LOL, and he sends me an e-mail saying I better start sleeping with one eye open. The tough part would be deciding whether to use 9mm ammo, 7.62mm, or bare hands.
I get a kick out of Internet supermen. The idiot isn't even smart enough to cancel the bids!

And look who is bidding on it know, everyone FAVORITE DM/$11.00 integral bidder.... the "Coug".   I guess thats why he wont cancel the bids because he knows some schmuck like Cougar will try to beat everyone from this forum on principle, just to try to  prove his "superiority". Kind of pathetic.

Vampire Puffin
Frequency: Very Rare
No. Appearing: 10-40
Armor Class: 0
Move: 6"//24"
Hit Dice: 2
% In Lair: 0%
Treasure Type: Nil
No. Of Attacks: 1
Damage/Attack: 1-6
Special Attacks: Energy drain, Drain blood
Special Defenses: +1 or better weapon to hit
Magic Resistance: See Below
Intelligence: Very
Alignment: Chaotic evil
Size: S
Psionic Ability: Nil

The Vampire Puffin is the bane of all artic explorers who cross its path. They have been known to overwhelm whole parties of adventurers with sheer numbers, leaving behind desiccated husks. They attack with their sharp beaks, latching on to their victims and draining 1-6 HP of blood per round until destroyed. Created by a deranged magic-user, these small birds have all the abilities and weaknesses of human vampires, with a few exceptions. They must sleep in native snow during the day. Holy water has no effect on them, since the oil coating their feathers prevents skin contact. They have the innate ability to summon 2-20 skeletal emperor penguins, which will attack fiercely at the puffin's command. The most dreaded ability is the puff attack, during which the puffin rapidly inflates and deflates itself. This causes all viewers to make a saving throw vs. death magic at -4 or die laughing. Vampire puffins are always under the command of a master puffin, who has 4 HD and is fully 2" tall.
The only known way to permanently destroy a vampire penguin is to feed it to a zombie elephant seal.

eBay: Redirect

There's a slightly milder flavor on the UK page
eBay: Redirect
- "report" button isn't present on the US version of this one.

I reported him once for that deliberately deceptive reserve in his listing text, and a second time following that recent outburst (putting it into a RL context).


Out of interest, did you actually bother to try talking him into a more "sensible" BIN-relisting after he attempted to hook your non-binding $299.99 bid?

p.s. thx for the vampire puffin!  :)
