Which is why threads like this suck, and are doomed to argument and eventual lock.


More than one person has your name on their blocklist. I'm sure more than one person has it on their favorite sellers list as well.

We agree.

He has never dealt with either of us, it was lame retaliation/smearing on his part, for things DB and myself have said to him on this forum.

I saw it, notified DB about it, and DB got our names removed, a mod stepped in.


Didn't you start this thread suggesting at least one person to avoid who you've never dealt with?

LOL
Didn't mean to (re)open this can. I thought the "trouble" was with a capital T, and somehow eBay was involved.

I rely on these lists from time to time, and think each name should come with a reason in order for whoever is reading the list to consider, then make up their own minds. I couldn't care less about what someone is 'like' as long as their selling practices are honest.
This, of course, can change if said person becomes an "acquaintance" of sorts, but for someone I'll never meet- I don't care.

There's a blocked eBay seller list across the street and I don't believe it ever caused this much butthurt.

Oh for God's sake...why am I being dragged into this again...?

You "suggested to avoid" people not because of bad business practice, but because you are offended by what they say outside of and unrelated to business. That's the very opposite of professionalism.

I don't post lists of eBay sellers to avoid. While I would never, under any circumstances, ever consider doing business with you...precisely because of your lack of professionalism...I don't tell other people not to, "wonderful personality" or no. Caveat emptor.

That's the difference between you and me.



Doc's Right, It BS!

While I have had a difference of opinion on a few topics with Doc myself, I do not doubt that he is an experienced and knowledgeable person in the field of Comic Books. Those differences of opinions would certainly never prompt me to try to slander him or any other seller based on those differences, Even more so having Never actually having any business/book transactions with him.

That's just ethically WRONG.

While I have had some heated exchanges with Doc, I would never exclude the opportunity to add books to my collection from any experienced hobbyist based on anything other than Book quality and Service, And that includes Doc Brown

A little bit of an overstatement? Your ethical value is not based upon who is on your ebay block list.

I think we all should just chill. Just like any other store...

I don't think I've ever really been 'taken'. I've played with fire a few times ... bought from low-feedback sellers (5 or less), but they've always worked out. Really, I could be wrong, but I don't think I can lose my money with low-feedback sellers (with Ebay's policy of giving buyers' money back if 'taken').

I just remembered, I did get taken once. I won a nice Night Nurse from a low-feedback seller & he never sent it. But Ebay gave me my money back.

So combining the fact that people are afraid to buy from low-feedback sellers with the fact that I'll get my money back if 'taken', I can get good deals by buying from them.

If you do not want to do business with another board member for personal reasons that is fine. Listing them on a blocked eBay seller list on a public forum does not seem appropriate if they have not actually screwed you over on an eBay transaction. In any event, when suggesting others should avoid an eBay seller (or buyer), the reason for avoiding them is a detail that really should be included so the rest of us can make an educated decision.

As this is a public forum, everyone does have a chance to share their side of the story.

OK, I'll amend the statement.

It's a low life scum bag thing to do.

Your comments reflect the messenger. I'd watch your comments as most of us are trying to remain civil. Furthermore, I'm pretty sure there are waaaaay more f'd up things to do besides adding someone to a block list. Let's get real here. Jesus. So dramatic over an ebay block list. Get over yourselves. You are not that special.

I'm happy to be put on people's block lists. The odds are very good that if someone puts me on their "block list", I wouldn't be willing to do business with them anyway. Huzzah! Everyone's happy. Saves me hassle from known problem buyers and sellers in the future.

The DISTINCTION...which is a concept in incredibly short supply around here...is when someone makes such a list public and suggests publicly that someone is a "bad seller" in the process, without any evidence of any kind, and no direct experience of their own.

If I have a direct experience with someone that goes bad, I share that information, and leave it up to the reader to make his or her own determination.

I don't make posts about people with whom I don't, for personal reasons, do business. It's hardly unreasonable to expect the same in return.

You put people on your "list" because you don't like their opinions, opinions that have nothing to do with business. Your right. What isn't right is suggesting other people boycott them too for those same reasons.

Or is this all just another manifestation of my "wonderful personality"...? Too many words? Not enough memes? Too reasonable and logical? Not enough yelling, slapping, and wig pulling...? Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea MAXIMA culpa.

The DISTINCTION was mentioned very clearly that it was due to personality conflicts therefore chosen to not do business with. I didn't think I had to draw you a meme or a picture to reiterate the DISTINCTION but apparently I was supposed to, or required to.

Clearly as anyone can see publicly - it's a great idea for these 2 to remain on my personal block list. Would you want to do business with someone you didn't get along with? I didn't think so. It would help too if Beckett got off their butts and actually hired a capable computer coder to implement the use of blocking members and their posts, too. One has to wonder if the forum itself hurts future and current growth of the company.

The reason you and I don't "get along" is entirely on you. It's been your choice all along to have a bitter, caustic attitude towards me, because you're endlessly offended. I am perfectly willing to resolve our differences. While I think there are areas where you can definitely improve...can't we all?...I don't see those as insurmountable, if you're willing to set aside your ego and see that I'm a human being just like you, who isn't the asshole you think I am, then maybe...just MAYBE...we could find some common ground.

Or not.

Choice is yours.

I tried this once before, and you rejected it. Maybe time and publicity will change that.

I've not said anything "behind your back" that I haven't said to your face. "Behind your back" only means anything if someone is pretending to be your friend. Obviously, that's never been the case here.

Worth a shot. Now it's a matter of public record.

I 100% agree with you that you don't have to do business with someone you don't get along with.

But I think your missing the point here Myke. You had NO business transaction with the guy.

PUBLICALLY trying to mislead others to not do business with a person based on nothing more than the fact you don't get alone with him, and having had NO actual business dealings with him.

Don't you see how wrong that is?
