1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    You did yourself a favor. That seller is a wack job (and a douchebag)

    I wasn't intending to bid, not my size. But it's good to have that info.

    Spoo-
    Tell me how you really feel. Bad experience?

    [​IMG] I wish I saved the emails.

    It was about that same pair of shoes (which just now sold after 5 times relisted or so). The initial list price was $3xx and didnt sell. I emailed them very politely and said since they didnt get a bid would they sell to me at a lower price (didnt name one), could do it off ebay to save the fees, yada, yada, yada. Anyway, a few back and forth emails (mostly her going on with some giant multisyllabic tirades about disrespecting the quality of the shoes by a lowball offer (I never named a price) and how it was not fair to other bidders to offer a price and who was I to determine the value of such a world renowned brand, etc. I gave up. I mean the emails were paragraphs and paragraphs. It was painful. It got ugly in the end, but I cant remember why... I do know that she was a total loon and I even blocked her from my auctions so I wouldnt get stalked [​IMG]

    LOL. Given that the shoes are sold for barely over $300, he probably would have been better off if she had sold the pair off ebay to you.

    I think this could be interesting. Filson large carry on for BIN of $299.99 I have not seen (caveat - I'm a noob to eBay) a new 242 selling for that price. If you see the other listings for the 242, they're typically at $400-$455.

    You sure took care of that invented character! He'll never rule a fictional country that doesn't exist! And not just because he doesn't exist! Also because you zinged him!!
