4. I'm 48 years old. Not a kid to anyone other than my father who turned 80 today.

This seller didn't buy it and then decide he didn't want it. He bought it to flip it. I'm also tempted to post when I see guys pricing stuff in what I feel is a ridiculous manner, but in this case, come on. You've heard of this company Apple, haven't you? You've heard that their products cause strange buying behaviours among certain people, right? Buying a brand new 2nd Gen iPad and then flipping it for a profit isn't exactly uncommon. There's a market for these at his price. That's it. A market. Get it?

Since you're so concerned, Mr. Helper, I'll explain. I mark my place in the three B/S folders by opening (therefore marking as read) the most recent post. I then read the titles until I get to the last read thread that I know I wasn't interested in. Like sales for size 7 shoes or children sized clothing. Just my method of browsing. I found the response to the OP ambiguous, hence the "sarcasm font" comment.

Last time I checked there was no forum rule against posting snarky comments. There is however a rule against posting in your own B/S thread without a 5% price drop. I'm really surprised none of the "no free bumps" nazis haven't jumped all over the OP.

At the end of the day my "thread shitting" and subsequent comments by you and your ilk haven't really done anything other than keep the OP's sale at the top of the heap, which is a good thing for him now, isn't it?

I'd really like you to explain how, from the information the OP had posted at the time, I was supposed to know that it was NIB/unopened/bought to flip. Maybe you're the reincarnation of Carnak the Magnificent though, I don't know you.

Even so, I never really addressed whether the item was worth the asking price now, did I?

I'll wait while you go back and read the thread more carefully.

Finished? I assume so since I'm no longer seeing your lips move.

Good. Glad we cleared that up.

Seriously. You post on a B/S forum, which specifically targets a MARKET that will pay above and beyond normal market value for used clothing. Then you whine and moan about your lack of knowledge of the electronics market. It's sold, clearly you don't know anything about it, and snarky comments are unnecessary, but okay.

But then people defend the OP, you get all butt-hurt because your e-peen got insulted. 48 years old immature, sad really.

Then you haven't checked since... ever. There has always been a rule against this.

This is also true. So basically you both suck.

Oh, sorry for sucking by defending myself. If it's any consolation, the iPad2 sold before old man river started trolling on my thread though (for 700 on CL mind you).

I mispoke. There are rules against pretty much anything. I should have said that I think the mods here don't enforce any rules against snark. At least I'm not aware of it. They will, however, threaten to ban you for bumping your own B/S post.

And by posting your own snark about both of us sucking you make it a trifecta of suckitude. Congratulations!

OP: Glad you sold your item.

I'm not sure what "above and beyond normal market value for used clothing" threads you are referring to, but then again I already acknowledged that I don't pay close attention to prices in the smaller sizes that seem to be more common here. Most of the items that I've bought have been fairly priced. I certainly haven't seen any threads where the seller was offering used clothing above retail price.

Please point out where I whined and moaned about my lack of knowledge. Oh, that's right. I didn't. You just pulled that out of your @ss as an insult. Got it.

In the immortal words of that great American patriot, Lt. Pete Mitchell: "If I need your help, I'll ask for it". Or my words: "If I need any more sh*t from you I'll unzip the top of your head and dip it out with a ladle".

E-Peen over and out.

Actually I am quite enjoying myself at the moment. 33K' over Atlantic City NJ and although it's a bumpy flight AirTran has managed to keep the fuselage of this 737 intact. My colleague is taking a SW flight from St. Louis, meeting me in Boston. Hopefully her flight doesn't have the sunroof option.

Nah. You just have to decide whether you're on the "E-Peen" side or the "Monday Morning Quarterback" side.

It's sort of like choosing sides in beer pong though. Doesn't really matter.
