I hope you're kidding. One minute Hermes makes "silly tiny-printed ties" (nobody asked what you thought of them!) and "who cares" whether they're fake if you're getting them cheap (I think a lot of people on this forum and elsewhere take issue very seriously with counterfeit designer gods!) -- not only that but "If you care that much about owning Hermes ties, you have bigger issues." Never fucking mind the guy didn't even say he was looking for Hermes ties in particular, all he asked was "any good tips for how to avoid fake hermes etc?"
A minute later you've backpedalled to the point where you "understand" why a "collector" might look for these ties on eBay, and you're trying to pass off your initial asshole posting as wariness of "designer goods". God knows, if you don't pass the luftvier Collector's Test you aren't allowed to try and buy Hermes ties on eBay, right? I could waste more time on this but suffice it to say you came into this thread and jumped all over someone for asking an innocent question -- no, it's not germane what he did or said in some other thread -- but don't bother trying to justify it now, you've already stopped posting in this one.
