I don't get along well with others who speak about me behind my back, sorry

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.

If you've seen it, if it's posted in public...that's the opposite of "behind your back."

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?

So you admit it, too. That's awesome. It's behind my back when I have others send me links to very obscure underground web forums.

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.


I was thinking the same thing. Occasionally there is drama, but it's been a very helpful tool. I can remember two times I almost pulled the trigger, then that little voice said the seller's username is familiar, so I checked the list, and there they were (can't remember who).

Wish I never asked the question.

This argument would go a lot faster if you guys direct message each other or facebook messenger each other.

Not when I specifically mention that "while I've never had any business transactions with this person, I simply just do not get along with him or his personality, I chose to include him on my ebay block list" I guess your egos are having a hard time wrapping that around your brains.

Myke

Im not against you putting the guy on your "blocked list" In fact I encourage it.

Including a disclaimer "that you never had any transactions with the guy, you just don't like him" does not justify trying to publically slander in an attempt to cause negative public sentiment towards him. This is the kind of stuff politicians do to each other, Not comic book fans.

Hey, I got dragged into this mess.

The reason there's little drama about the other list is:

1. critical thinking

2. critical thinking

and

3. critical thinking

When people are posted on that list, the posters(nearly) always explain why, and most of the time, it's pretty valid. The troublemakers get sussed out pretty quick. But that only works in an environment where there are people who don't tolerate bullshit, and where there's a measure of respect given AND EXPECTED to and from all, and, unfortunately...that's much too rare on the internet.

Just my two cents.

If you have added someone to your blocked eBay list for non-business reasons no one is forcing you to ask others to block them as well. When sharing your blocked list on a public forum like this one you could omit such buyers and only share the list of buyers who you are blocking because of bad behavior on eBay.

While we all get in arguments and some people here may not like each other there is a big difference between teasing someone and calling their integrity into question. I would like to think we are better than that.

Olive branch still extended, km. I don't take back anything I've said, and, indeed, nothing was said "behind your back" if it's posted in public. I tend to think a place called "the comic book forum", either one, is not a "very obscure underground web forum", but opinions can differ, I suppose. I don't expect you to take anything you've said back, either.

The point isn't to pretend those things don't exist, but to acknowledge them, work through them, and get past them, realizing that there are actual human beings on the other side, human beings that could be mutually productive and positive.

Do I have to? No. Do I want to? Ehh...not really, my human nature says "piss off" and that's that. But I also don't like having people so vocally opposed to me. And I'm willing to take this first (second? third?) step, as, indeed, I have been in the past.

I see value in kaptainmyke. Do you see value in DocBrown?

Gulp. Just sent a submission to cbcs 2 weeks ago that included an ASM 23 and 40 bought from collectors_comics. Hoping they don’t come back restored after seeing this.

I have bought from CollectorsComics many times. Not had any issues - whatsoever - did you reach out to Thomas/CollectorsComics? He is not a member of this Forum but I will forward him this thread


I have not bought anything from him.

I am going off feedback posted by several CGC boardies, on the CGC Forums.

I can also see when a book is over graded, from looking at a listing.


Well I would not make an accusation such as that based on 3rd hand knowledge. This is a seller with more than 20k feedback.

@poka This is a public forum. If there is a thread on the other guys forum where multiple posters have an issue with a seller I for one appreciate that information being shared here. The seller has the right and the ability to share their side of the story here if they care to.

As long as the poster was telling the truth about what he heard or observed on that forum without embellishment we are free to decide for ourselves how to treat that information.

LOL
After I logged off, I realized what I posted could be taken this way.
I meant the list across the street always seemed (to me) designed to 'protect' one another rather than to allow people to grind an axe, or nominate someone for personal reasons. Not dealing with someone I don't know because they don't get along with someone else I don't know doesn't make sense to me.
But if that person is on the list because they to scam buyers, THAT is something I want to know.

But things are quite different there.

I don’t think anyone was listed here for personal reasons. As others have said, what happens on other forums shouldn’t matter here.

That is true. The list with DB & CAK was not here.
Got mixed up because it's being discussed here.
