The real sad thing is that those people who haved waited patiently for 2- 2 1/2 months for their book(s) finally decide to write-it off and leave negative feedback end up getting negative feedback from TGE in return.

They all seem to have 100% positive feedback before dealing with the TGE.

To the Game_Emporium -> you should be absolutely ashamed of yourself.
People pay you promptly and then (rightly) neg after 2 months of waiting!.
What have they done wrong? (besides buying from you).
You have no reason to leave them negatives. For this shoddy practise alone you should be banned from ebay!.

NOW who's DOING WHO??? Man you guys dont even know me, and yet in 3 months I'm a Crook and a Seller that I cant even Find on Ebay or on the Web or ANYWHERE Else for that matter!? Now was I not TRYING to be NICE?? The Item he won was a 5.00 Module and I was including a sealed module as well? No Come on Guys....Tell me the Truth! This wasn't Right! I've Already Contacted Ebay and they have ALL the info. He bid, just to Bash my Feedback, like TWO other people did as well. I have about 6 mutual Feedback withdraws in my email box right now....but ebay only allows 5 a month. So I'm waiting to use them, when I can. TRULY sorry about the problems I had...but I dont know you guys...and contray to what some of you have in your head!! I'm a Nice Guy, and have NO intention of doing ANYONE wrong!?

     The problem is, even if you aren't a bad guy, you're a moron.  And if I'm taking a bus somewhere and the driver is a moron, but heck he's not a bad guy, it still gets me in a pileup.  But, personally, I think you're a bad guy also, so I guess it doesn't matter.
      You lie on item descriptions.  You keep insisting you're not the Eastern Game Chest when it's painfully's like the original Wizard of Oz movie, if the Wizard had just kept insisting to pay no attention to the guy behind the curtain, but instead of eventually giving in just kept insisting to Dorothy and Co. he wasn't the Wizard, and the movie had gone on this track for another few hours, well, you wouldn't have had any sympathy for the guy, you just would have been irritated and then finally disgusted and then you would have wanted to just ignore the moron or punch him in the nose.
   You leave retalitory feedback when the misunderstanding was your fault 100%, which you admit.  Why don't you just be a man and take your medicine?  
  You can't compose a coherent sentence and you can't spell.  This supports the moron theory, but dear lord, am I the only one annoyed when someone can't spell simple words?  And you think you are a businessman?  You should be ashamed, or finish high school, one of those at least.  
    The Sasser virus had nothing to do with your incompetence. I have four computers in my home, anytime I've ever had a virus it's been dealt with immediately.  Even so, deleting an email would never lead to a 6 week delay in shipping.  The random email sometimes gets deleted. I'm dealing with a customer right now whose paypal receipt was deleted, it took me 11 days to finally send his order.  My fault entirely, but I dealt with the problem as soon as it came to my attention (by mailing out the item that hour, not waiting another 2-3 weeks). Your method of dealing with the problem seems to be to wait until threatened until action takes place, then acting shocked and crying crocodile tears when you get well-deserved negative feedback.  Listen, a few years ago I had an accident and broke both my thumbs, my right elbow, and right wrist (and I'm a righty).  I had several auctions running at the time, and NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING, was over 2 weeks late.  This is with the right arm in a cast and the left arm in a sling.  As a matter of fact, I was off work for two months and got more items sold then than ever before! Unless your business burned to the ground or you were in the hospital, no one wants to hear your wonky excuses.  
    Your feedback has fallen below 95%, looks like it's time for another Ebay identity. In the meantime, this forum is for serious game collectors, I could go a lifetime without seeing more of your idiotic mispelled posts cluttering up the area.

By way of example to 'thegameemporium', I have a ton of stuff I'd like to sell.

I know I'd make good money on it.

I know how to grade it.

I know how I would list it.

I'm not selling it or listing it right now because I KNOW I would not be able to adequately support my auctions by being accessible in Email and making sure I could ship on time.

I am honest enough with myself to know that I SHOULD NOT BE A SELLER AT THIS TIME (maybe when things cool down at work).

Sounds like you should face facts that not everyone can sell at Ebay.  Maybe you ought to stick to local conventions where you can bring your inventory and sell on the spot to folks.

Either that or pull all your listings, get your back orders in line, issue credits and start fresh with some plan for logistics.

Everyone can be redeemed.. if you're not a crook you'll take this as good advice and clean your house up a bit before trying to dig your way out of this hole.

Here's another thing... In business, YOUR problems are not MY problems.  Stuff happens, but, at the end of the day, if you want to be in business, you have to take care of your customers.  If they have a perception that they are being screwed, you will lose.

Good luck.  I have a lot of pity for you in any case.  If you're a crook.. you suck as a crook.  If you're not a crook, your luck just sucks in a way that is completely tragic.  I have a feeling it's both.  Which is all the worse.  No kid ever wants to grow up to be a D&D selling con artist, do they?

Just in case anyone came late to the party they may want to read the_game_emporium's rambling defense of himself.

It should really be called Eastern_Treasure_Theft. This Nazi scumbag ripped me off and never returned my money or item. I am currently putting together a lawsuit to sue is sorry ass back to the stone age.
