Hmmm... so he does appear to have problems with communication, and that neutral he received appears to have been warranted and not just the whinings of a "crybaby". Maybe instead of replying to the seller who left him that neutral with the solid advice that his emails "could be more friendly" with this gem: "!ALL MY E-MAILS ARE FRIENDLY, THERE IS NO REASON YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT A NEUTRAL!" -- maybe he should have just taken that good advice to heart? Some have argued that if one purchases an item that is shipped promptly in great condition, it is wrong to leave a neutral just because the seller's emails are curt (or non-existent). I happen to believe in a higher level of customer service - where the communication is an integral part of the entire buying experience. So it's very amusing to me that a Wharton MBA student would lash out in all caps at solid advice (to be more friendly in his emails) with... an unfriendly retort! Very amusing... comical, even. Maybe instead of lashing out, he should have just - oh I don't know - started being friendlier in the emails he chooses to reply to? Or gee - maybe he could even reply to all
emails, and do so in a friendly and/or professional manner? When this Wharton MBA goes on to become Senior Vice President of some Fortune 500 corporation, how long do you think he will last if he sends punitive or combative emails to clients in all caps?

Ah, so let me get this straight, because to me it sounds a little whack, Whacked. You're saying that the "reasonable explanation" for his having 172 current auctions on eBay - all of which contain the falsehood that he doesn't have any negatives when in fact he does have negatives going back to September (regardless of whether the negatives were received when selling a $25 photocopy of an Obama flier or a $15,000 HermÃ¨s suitcase, a negative is still a negative) - is because it would be too much work for him to go back and change the ads to reflect the truth? Well boo-f*cking-hoo. You're telling me that this guy, who Duveen says has "more hustle than anyone else I've met" at the prestigious Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania, the first collegiate business school in the United States of America, is lazy?
He's currently listing well over $100,000 of merchandise -- is it really too much to ask that those ads be truthful? Cry me a river
. If you're going to take the time to list something on eBay - let alone listing $100K worth of stuff - it's imperative that you also take the time to ensure that your listings are correct and that they reflect the truth, or astute buyers will simply move on to the next seller. That's all I'm saying, Whacked. So now I think it's your turn to just shut up already... that is, unless you want to continue supporting fraudulent eBay listings with the "Laziness Defense".
