Thid isnt so much about BO/the hobby as it is a general pet peeve. I hate DC#'s. They havent been accurate for about 2 months now, I have 3 things marked as "out for delivery" that I have not recieved, and I have a card in hand that is still marked as "accepted at facility". I dont know what it is or if there is a country wide mailperson service but come on, get it together.

I have another one, when people have giveaways and contests and people keep entering AFTER it already ended.

How about when a member post in the Sale section,

"last 3 EBay sales were...$100, $105 and $75 but the $75 was a poor listing so I am selling for $102.50"

I like how the final EBay sale gets discarded, but if it were even or higher it wouldn't.

When you get an item at a great price for whatever reason, bad listing etc, and when you flip it, youll get 2 or 3 people that think theyre entitled to get em for the price you did.

When buyers give BS sentimental reasons to get sellers to lower the price. Then next thing you know, the card is on ebay again. Damn flippers....

EBay ID's....

Some users post theirs, some users do not.

Is there any takeaway from that?

I'd venture to say that 99.9% of forum members have an account.

If you are only a buyer I can understand not posting your ID, but why don't sellers?

They know they have or will piss someone off so they would not want their eBay essentially ruined or just jacked with.

Or they are shady.

What gets me are the people who have private photobuckets. Seems like too many members involved with Haiku have private photobuckets.

Lets see, I get pretty miffed at...

*My pack not having any Yankees
*Blaster boxes and rack packs not being available in Japan
*Realising that I still need one more card to complete a set
*"eBay 1/1s"
*Me having to ship first because I don't have a lot of iTrader ratings even though I have more than the other guy

Because there is way to many jackholes on here who think it's funny to mess with someones listings if they say something they don't agree with.

[QUOTE=cking;3795114]# 1-When someone expects a card for cheaper the Ebay because thay are "saving you fees". How exactly are you saving me fees if I had no intention of listing the card on Ebay?


this one drives me nuts..if you can get it on ebay for 5 bucks and i offer to sell to you for 5 bucks what does it matter if i save on fees or not..ill still have paypal fees..and 98% of the time if they are selling and you would happen to ask that they would laugh at you

People who are never online that come out of the woodworks for giveaways and then crawl back into nonexistence afterwards.

When idiots try to pretend cards aren't worth anything near their real value because they clearly are intending to re-sell it themselves.

Told someone I was listing something for 100 OBO because I had no idea what it would be worth, he said 100 was too steep and he'd pass, okay understandable.

Messaged him back saying thats why I had it as OBO and said I sold one from the same set for 50 and asked what he thought about that.

Messaged me back and said how that's still too high because of the numbering on the card was too high for a card like that. Which is when I realized we weren't talking about the same card as I was messaging two guys at the same time and got them mixed up

Which is what got me pissed, I was fine with him saying 50 was too high for the card I thought we were talking about, but I already had a lowball offer of 60 and even a somewhat decent offer of 100 on the card he was trying to tell me wasn't worth 50 bucks

If you're looking to buy re-sell that's one thing, but to be asking for less than 50% of a cards value and trying to convince me that's what it's worth is absurd and just pisses me off
