my $.02 as someone who has made multiple purchases that all went great.
The seller screwed up. He simply shoudl've said he would ship it the next day not the same day, apologize and tell him he would send a PM when it had shipped. Reading the PM exchange, the reasons for his doing so are kind of a put off. No one needs to know why you couldn't send the item the same day(unless the buyer flips out and demands to know why). The whole bit about the tracking number didn't require throwing his wife into the mix, a simple "Sorry, mate, no tracking number" would suffice (until/unless the buyer flips out and demands why).
Buyer's screw up - Being new to the board, his initial screw ups are understandable. He doesn't know these folks on this board (another reason for his not understanding why no one understands his outrage) so when someone does not provide immediate or quick feedback and doesn't stick to an agreement ("pay now and I'll send today/immediately") his alarm bells went off. Especially considering he spent $100 that I take he doesn't come by often. Then finally, after this thread was created he should've simpy stated his point of view, apologize for coming off as douchey and drop it. By page 6 of this thread, he has ruined any future credibility.
My overall take on the buy sell forum here: With all the purchases I've made here, ranging from $12 for socks to ~$200 for shoes, I have never received a tracking number nor asked for one (chorse, or another seller to me who would remember please correct me if I'm wrong). I do however receive the ocassional PM or email saying when the item has shipped (the few times I request a note when this happened usually doesn't get responded to). I have, though, learned to totally trust the sellers on this website (however, I gravitate toward those with high thread counts or people I've purchased from before), so I never become alarmed or feel offended when I don't get instant or much feedback (shit, I rarely tell sellers when I received the item). But for a new person, especially spending a lot of money, just about everything I posted here can be alarming.
Anyway, Fstyles, my suggestion is to walk away from this discussion (I'm typing this as I've read through the first 6 pages, so forgive me if you've done so already), apologize for your "excitedness" and try to take the higher road. And also, listen to the feedback here saying that most sellers will not give you instant/highly detailed feedback. However, you will get your item quite quickly (sometimes with quick turn around, others a couple of days later. Never more than a week). If this bothers you, then do not make future purchases on the site. However, I think you can learn to accept it.
For the seller, I suggest you apologize for your flippancy. Shake hands, kiss and /thread.
By the way, a lot of the other posters here are way out of line.
