This thread is not unwelcoming of new posters. This thread is unwelcoming of thin-skinned noobs who want to walk into the room and dominate the conversation. Your machine gun posts and minor pissing contests with some of the regulars is a distraction and a waste of my time because I have to scroll through it.

Helpful hint: There are people here who have made a living on ebay for years, know far more about this than you do, and only post every few weeks. RMPL.

There seems, at best a split consensus on this.  I received numerous pm's from lurkers who refuse to post here, finding the regulars to be unwelcoming.  "machine gun posting?"  give me a break. Also, don't be condescending.  I too have been making a living off of ebay for years.  You don't know what I do or don't know.

Your first response was from the most respected member of this thread, and one of, if not, the most respected members of this entire forum. The fact that @SpooPoker responded pretty much negated the necessity of anyone else responding. He's been doing this far longer than anyone else here, as far as I know. He's been doing it so long he used to shoot pictures with film and get the negatives scanned, ferfuckssake! Why should you even question his answer?

 

But if you persist, this is why you do not list NWOT without proof:

 

This is a listing I won last week, and received on Saturday. They are now being return Not As Described.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the condition of the pants as received. Note the wear around the knees and rear pockets, and that the inseam measures 29 inches (a new pair from Gustin would have a 34 or 35 inch inseam). These clearly have been worn, though it's not obvious from the shitty pictures in the listing).

Hive mentality.  I get it.  Letting others speak for you.  I get it.  Closed off mentality to anything outside of your little norms.  I get that too.

 

what you received were goods that were clearly not NWOT.  Not the same thing that I sell or was referencing.  

 

had you read a bit more you'd see that I specifically noted NEW UNALTERED ITEMS specifically.  

 

I consider pants with unfinished 38" inseams as proof that they are new.  do you know anyone who walks around with their pants unhemmed?

I consider sport coats that do not have the buttons sewn on to be proof that it is new.  do you know anyone who walks around without the cuff buttons on their coat?

 

Seriously, if you feel so put out by someone asking a few questions that deviate from what you consider normal, or acceptable how the fuck do you get by in life?

Now GTFO.

I didn't reject it.  I sought other opinions. No one else had to reply at that point though a few did (and even the great Spoo clarified his statement).

Unless you are a moderator for this thread I don't think you have the permissions to stop me from posting here.  Especially when all I am doing is responding to continued insults and or "proof" that how I run my business is somehow wrong.  

post #25356 of 30427

LOL...

 

 

 

Blocked and blocked, I will move on now.

post #25357 of 30427

And yet I have 400 more positive feedbacks than you do. Which means I sell more, have more happy buyers, and make more money!  

 

 

 

Go figure!  

post #25358 of 30427

I see math isn't your strong suit either.

12 month feedback.  It's taken you since '02 to get less than 3000 feedbacks?

I don't see the thread as unwelcoming to new posters at all. I do, however, see the thread as wanting someone else to do at least a little of the work themselves first. Same with the thrift thread and the reason people are asked to read the original thread. 

 

The thing is, you seem to really NOT care about the answers to the questions you pose. You ask a question: get an answer and argue the point. Playing devil's advocate for the sake of just doing it. There's truly no reason to shit up the thread with pages of arguing. If you want to argue something so vigorously, PM the person.

Ok.  Thanks guys.  I just had a bad feeling because the buyer had zero feedback (and joined yesterday) and I had no experience with the name Tambot.  But, now I see the name.   I'm sure it will all work out.  

 

Remember how I asked about a zero feedback buyer with an odd name that had just joined ebay and a bunch of posters came to their defense.  

 

Well, they didn't pay and a case has been opened already and there has been no communication.

Yea that's a tricky one, I had a guy with single digit feedback buy and immediately pay for a $400 item, and I've also had buyers with hundreds of feedback not pay

My two biggest sales this week were to 0 and 1 feedback buyers. They both paid immediately. You can't win them all.

 

That being said, in two years of doing this full time and some 4500 transactions in that time, very few zero feedback buyers have actually paid.

lol you asked if they were a cyborg or something (iirc it turned out the name is filipina). i'm still pretty confident you didn't get stood up by the singularity.

 

to be clear i don't vouch for buyers. just yes that the name likely belonged to a human being.

Almost exact scenario here. My two best sales were to zero-feedback buyers. And, yes, they paid immediately.
