Heads up about an auction, and my Reef Store Dream

Recommended Posts

Really now guys, WTF? I know it is well known that I am not a big fan of the occasional peddler with an attitude or mysteries Eli's Ladder box. But come on, had this guy posted about finding a PGP-1, for instance, this thread would have gone somewhere entirely different.

 

This is what happened:

And just for the record, I am simply tired of moving countless ebay link auction posts from other forums, I didn't even see it was a single post user.

Probably my last post. Here's my thinking about the pricing:

 

Oh, I do appreciate those people who've been decent to me, a "noob." It really does take courage to risk being targeted yourself, for associating with a target in such a "community." I remember that well from school myself.

Heh...I know the feeling...

do you have a picture of it? didnt see one on the ebay auction. if your lot doesnt sell and you want to get rid of CTCW by itself i would pick it up from you for 50 + shipping. anyways ignore all the negative people on the site, they just dont get laid enough.

I think I would had been ok with something among the lines of 'Hey, I found this at the Goodwill, I don't play Atari, so I'm ebaying it, so here's the link, thanks!' instead of the whole 'oh I bought the games it for my students bla bla bla after I tricked a Goodwill employee in letting me pick up the more rare and valuable games' BS story.

 

That's just me.

ryanpg: I tried to PM you a question about old photographic equipment, but I guess you aren't set up to use the messenger system.

Looks like you're headed for friendlier places anyway. Bon voyage.

My thoughts exactly.

I think probably the most significant aspect of the OP that irks people is the blatant dishonesty: buying for a student, conning Goodwill employee (and subsequent purchaser), and finally, tricking the reader into reading an advertisement. One of the things I really appreciate about this group is the general interest in being genuine.

Hey I have an Idea. Take all the money you make and give your kids a party. Spend every bit you make on it, for them. That would be a wonderful thing to do. :)
