Wait, how are we to tell the fashionable from the homeless?
Went for a hike in Griffith Park this morning. Wore a uniqlo polo and shorts with new balance sneakers. Got home, decided we'd go to the café a block away with our dog. I take the sneakers off and for a second consider putting my GATs on, but then figured, oh what the hell, it's just the café down the street, I'll just wear flip-flops. So I throw the flip-flops on, we walk a block down Broadway to Il Caffe (inside the Eastern Columbia building and attached to the new Acne store), and it was then that two ladies from Japanese magazine "Men's Non No" come up to me and ask to take my photo (along with the dog of course).
I have let you down, styleforum. I beg your forgiveness.
Oh, no biggie. Some guy on B&S had a surcharge for Paypal payments, (+4% for Paypal fees), which is a clear violation of the B&S rules, which state that your listings may not infringe the ToS of third party websites. We dinged him for $500, and now he is crying bloody murder, that we are trying to extort him, whatever. Essentially, he wants to get out of paying the fine, when it's obvious from his listing that he has been pulling this shit for a while now, under the radar.
Also, if you pay as a gift, you cannot report a fraudulent transaction to Paypal. They might get rid of the seller, but they will probably take action against your account as well. Essentially, you are telling them "I want your protections, but want to use the service for free." Clearly, this breaks the laws of business physics, which is simply "You never get something for nothing."
That's true. It's easy enough to follow the rules though. The dude has been around for awhile. You'd think that sometime in 3+ years, you could be bothered to read 1 pages of rules, especially when you are making sales using someone else's website, for free.
Styleforum rules are really pretty simple in principle: Don't do things on the website that could cost us money (so, posting porn is a no-no, since adsense and other ad networks will pull their services if they find it), and don't do things on the website that could cause us a huge hassle. This is the reason for most, of not all, of the B&S rules. Essentially, before posting anything dumb, the thought that should go through your mind is "Does this have the potential to make Fok's morning a pain in the ass?" If the answer is yes, smart money says that you probably shouldn't post it.
