Reasonable point. Â On the other hand, this item was NWT. Â My issue is that it was listed as "new" (that is, in the condition one would expect to find it in its appropriate retail environment), and for that I paid a substantial premium. Â Had it been listed as "used" or "smoke damaged" or whatever and I had purchased it for half or a third or a quarter of the price, I would just chalk it up to caveat emptor. Oh, well, I tried to be reasonable and offered several times nicely to send it back, picking up shipping in both directions on my tab, for a simple refund, but he refused and then got really snotty about it. Â So I left my negative feedback for him, reported him to ebay for fraudulently listing items as new that were clearly not, and will be filing formal complaints with PayPal and American Express, as well. I just do not see why people can't be civil, even if they disagree with you. Edit: Oh, yeah...since this is a "good, bad and the ugly" sort of thread, I should say I love ebay. Over the past six or seven years, I have spent far too much on things I really didn't need, but had a great time doing it. This is only one of two bad experiences I've had. The other was when I bought a bookcase from someone in Texas who took payment and then never sent it.
