    Anyone else find it hilarious that the guy with the HEY BUY MY SHIT ON EBAY tag is complaining about scalpers?

    If you're so adverse to making money, OP, why do you sell on eBay period, why don't you just give your stuff away you'd sell on eBay?

    ROFL HOLY... that dude has to have a warehouse for all this... and why??? I picked those two up at MSRP just two months ago... so apparently they're still somewhat available.

    Uh... that icon shows up the moment you put your eBay id on the profile. Also, do I have auctions where I'm putting items on 300% markup? *facepalm*


    mac&cheese must have a warehouse/store... cuz it's quite hard to imagine anyone sitting on *that* many items otherwise. also not the first post i've seen like this related to that user.

    I fucking hate scalpers. People who try to ruin other peoples hobbies for profit. They should go get a real side job like selling pot.

    What are you thalking about? Scalpers live for this kind of thread. Making people rage and hate them/make fun of them, or whatever, then people pay them anyway...

    Scalpers don't bug me; outrageous shipping charges do.

    you don't need to hate scalpers
    they are the supply end
    without the demmand (us) buying their expensive stuff
    they will not exist "see the logic?"

    :lol 

    Could not have said it better. The reason why scalpers exist is because there are buyers. If people did not buy from them, then wouldn't have "customers". Then they would not buy everything up, and people would be able to purchase things in the area, or online, at a regular price. Simple rule, DO NOT FEED THEM. End of.

    Well, considering all of the actual shitty things that people on the selling (as well as buying) end continue to do, I don't think we're really in the light to attack people for listing items according to their current value.
