4x Stubbs and Wootton needlepoint embroidered loafers
 

 

Awesome! I've been wanting some of these just for the baller-ness of them. 0% chance I find any here, though.

Nowadays it's just a joke because it reeks of niggardly greed.
"Shite jacket by some awful maker - AVAILABLE"
A true true joke.

 

Give this guy a break. To me, he seems like an ESL speaker. He might not quite understand the power or the sentiment of any words that remotely resembles the "N" word brings in our culture.

There are still a few people left that are willing to make deals, but for the most part it's gone. I'm getting so fucking sick of PMing some people (some of whom I have given insane deals in the past) and them quoting me eBay prices, and sometimes more than eBay prices.

 

I was never aware you are unpopular on here...lol No, but seriously, I have mix thoughts on this topic.

 

First of all, If you charge your items high on here, I don't see anything wrong with that. It's your possession and you get to do whatever you want with it. If people are willing to pay the asking price, then more power to you. If you don't want to pay the asking price and all negotiation falls through, move on with your life. No big deal.

 

Now, when it comes to etiquette, I think it's only reasonable to reciprocate any hook ups you get on here. I prefer trading items over cash buys because it seems to be a fairer deal for both parties. On top of that, you can resell or re-trade the item if it doesn't fit without your trading partner accusing you of cheating him out of his Ebay profit. Then you have to apologize and do damage control. If you don't, well, your reputation gets soiled on here. Too much hassle!

 

The bottom line is If you don't want your items to go cheap on here, DON'T post it on here, go straight to Ebay.

What? No. This is the bragging thread. Post here no matter what you plan to do with it.

 

Since I'm posting on this now, here's what I do:

 

If you're a regular and PM me about something I'll either do cost + shipping + a little gas money, or, if it's higher value, I'll figure what I think I can get on eBay and divide by 2. For some regulars rather than try to figure out a trade right away I've just shipped stuff off and we figured it out later. However, I also get several lurkers who don't post here PM'ing me expecting the same kind of deal, and I don't really see the point of offering super low prices to people who don't contribute to the community.

NIGGARDLY, NIGGARDLY, NIGGARDLY!!!!!!!!!

There, I said it--a whole bunch of times. "Niggardly" is NOT a racist term. Has nothing to do with skin color, y'all can look it up, and please do. It means "miserly" or "overly cheap" or something to that effect. As an aficionado of the English language, I hate, and I mean truly hate, it when folks bastardize (you can look that up, too) the language. Not so many years ago, someone in government got fired for using the word "niggardly," and the Fourth Estate that was supposed to run herd on shit didn't figure out what the freakin' word meant until it was too late. The poor sap still ended up on the unemployment line. Again, and please, there are more than enough lawyers and academics who populate this thread. I happen to like the word "niggardly," although not as much as "nepenthe."

Peace.

Peace.

dude do you really think that i wasn't 100% familiar with the dictionary definition of "niggardly" before i wrote my whiny, limousine-liberal elitist ultra-PC rant? or do you think that maybe i DID know what that word meant, yet i still consider it to be insensitive to use it? which one do you think is more likely?
