It would seem to me the fellow has a right to anonymity without being taunted, but what do I know.  I am sure in reality he is evil, rips people off and eats babies.  Nonetheless…

Welcome, Flatlander.  It is nice to see another Washingtonian in these parts.



Yeah, thats it.  I am not taking your crap anymore though. What exactly have you contributed to this site Boreas other than to rip off a seller or two?  NOTHING, yeah thats what I thought.  :roll:  

Because you are again up on your high horse, let me explain it to you in plain english.  Flatlander is NOT from Washington, unless of course I missed something here and I would extremely happy for you to point it out to me, KIRES1 is FROM WASHINGTON STATE.  Now, since you probably still don't get it, Flatliner is the either the Seller of the Not so 1st Print DMG or someone acting upon their behalf, but since in your infinite wisdom you probably already knew that, I shouldn't have had to explain it to you.  Now while we are on our high horse, let me remind you of what your first post was here:

Here is my theory

Boreas wrote:I can lurk no longer.  I have always had this theory about the Games Emporium dude.  I think he uses the book sales as a front to sell drugs.  How else can the guy find so many n00bs to pay what they do for the "RARE" 5th printings of Keep on the Borderlands?

I am no code breaker(though I did watch that goofy Windtalker movie one time) but I am close to figuring this guy out.  I think that each "!" that he uses is code for an ounce of coke.  Each "NEW" is a gram of weed and I think (and I emphasize think) that RARE is code for the number of Oreo cookies that he includes in his shipments. Hell yes he is scrambling to fill your orders.  He can't freaking believe that someone is actually interested in books.

Dare ya to buy one of his items and simply delay payment for two months offering back to him the bevy of 2 bit excuses that he peddles like a modern day snake oil.  Strike that...what would his wife rub on his scales after a long day of not filling orders.

Whew...I feel better now.  I suggest we help him come up with a new name.  We can email him our top choice.

Hmm would that be you ridiculing someone?  I think so. Until you have something actually to add to this site other than hard feelings and BS then maybe you should just close your mouth before you look any more dumb than you do right now.  I mean don't you have something else to do, like email your good buddy Radovarl or something?

No problem.  :D

(By the way, do any of the other regulars ever get the sinking feeling that they forgot to post in the "introduce yourself" thread?)

Hi, I'm Deimos.  I've been collecting this stuff for no good reason for several decades.  I specialize in purchasing the affordable downtrodden and forgotten bits that other people pass by on eBay.  Then I look for specific printing tidbits and post them in a randomly selected thread that has nothing to do with the topic at hand...it's fun.

Thanks for pointing out the mistake.  It has been corrected.

No, I am not from Washington, I'm from Pennsylvania.  And no, I am not Mary McWhortir or some one who knows her, aside from thw question I asked her about the DMG and her response.  I got my info about the printing from this site, so I thought I would check out the forum since I wa thinking of getting an ebay password and bidding on some things.  I can see now that I made a mistake.

Intersting that you aren't Mary McWhortir and you don't know Mary McWhortir but somehow you know her full name name to be Mary McWhortir ???  You know I was born at night, but unfortunately for you it was not last night....

PM-Knight wrote:BC,

In all fairness, the seller (a Mary McWhorter) did not advertise the book as a 1st print, as I have been watching it. We (NetRodent) are the ones who posted it here as a first print. Mary was kind enough to send me additional photos and the ISBN on the back cover tipped me off, as I forgot that the number of pages should be 232, as opposed to 238  

On the other hand, you are correct about the image for the item, as the photo of the cover she sent me does not look as nice as the one on eBay. If someone wants to see these, I will post them, but I did not want to take up too much space unnecessarily.


I got the last name from this site, you ridiculus putz!  I only knew her as "mary" from the e-mail she sent me.  Do you do this to eveyrone?  What a jerk!

No only those who come here under false pretenses.  You expect me to believe that you are unafiliated with the seller yet you magically have no bidding ID of your own, the one that you claim that you use you won't give away, you know the sellers full name.  Your first post here introducing yourself really didn't introduce yourself at all and your second post here was one that defended this seller that you claim not to know.  Do you really think that I am that naive?

Anywa, Did I mention that we should all welcome our newest poster Kires1?  Hi Kires1!! :D

I'll go then, if I'm unwelcome.  Sorry to interrupt your little circle jerk.

No one said you were unwelcome.  You are right, I have been rude.  Did you say that your name was David?  Sorry David. :)

Wow.  Maybe I am a tad bit slow, as has been so eloquently proven by the forum police, but what exactly did she do wrong?  At this point, I am asking the other bystanders and not the police/judge/jury/executioner.

I have been exchanging pm's with Lorin who is trying to determine exactly how she deserved this.  I am afraid I can't provide much in the form of an explanation aside from consoling her and insisting that this is not typically how folks are treated here.

Is this the best that you and Radovarl can do?  Your lame attempts at trying to get me to look bad isn't going to work.  If you want though, I can contact Foulfoot and have him check the IPs of both Radovarl and Flatlander to confirm that they are one in the same.

Anyway, like I said above Boreas, is there anything about D&D Collecting on this forum that you would like to discuss or contribute?  You are at almost 50 posts now and the only D&D Collecting that you have discussed here so far was the selling of your PotVQ and that was almost 2 months ago now.  Everything else han been OT garbage.  Are you here to discuss D&D collecting??

Hi, my name is Matt, and I've been collecting D&D memorabilia on and off (mostly ON  :D ) since I was about 8 or 9.

I still remember saving up - dollar by dollar - for the 12 bucks to buy my first "Monster Manual," only to be screwed by 76 CENTS OF TAX and have to wait ANOTHER week....(I suppose my folks wanted to teach me a lesson...but having it in my hand as a kid only to put it back HURT!)

I sell on eBay under the user ID centerstagehobbies - it's kind of a second income for me, since at 35 - and fairly recently divorced - I'm a full-time student again. Here in my hometown (or Cleveland area), I'm one of those guys who can "find" old things...so I am always stumbling across people who say - "I've got a box of THAT stuff you can have for $$$$" and I'm selling the extras online.

That being said, do I really have to talk about my favorite D&D character, like somebody suggested? That would kind of make me feel like one of those 20-somethings, still living at home in the basement, and stuff...

At any rate, thanks to many of you for being so welcoming, and I'll continue to prowl the forums!

You'll find no one like that around here!



We're mostly in our 30s and 40s.
