Cheese and rice you guys are a bunch of vipers. What is the problem? I have completed many many fair trades on this forum, and I'm restoring unknownman 100% fully. He isn't losing anything. Just because I miscalculated and succumbed to his pressure-sales tactics makes me a scumbag? I personally don't think so. I do, however, have the option of keeping all of his stuff. I wouldn't blackmail him that way, the way he is blackmailing me right now.
Answer me this: is threatening to leave me horrible feedback on the one forum that I do trades on blackmail or is it not?
Did I steal anything from him?
Why is it dishonorable to cancel a deal, when I have fully agreed to rectify his losses and restore him?
I'm not taking a vote, this is not open for a panel discussion. You guys are welcome to post your opinions, but to flame me and call me a scumbag (which you probably have no idea what the literal translation is) is just as uncalled for as me backing out.
Am I saying I'm not at fault? NO I'M NOT! But, I don't see how or why this should affect my trading relationship. Basically, you should be leaving comments about me that say "warning: if he hesitates a whole bunch, that probably means he doesnt want to do it at all" rather than saying "this guy should be blacklisted right alongside the scammers and the thieves". If you want to totally ruin my rep, that's your perogative.
I, however, canNOT be restored fully. Even if I do go through with the deal, everyone will remember this thread, not the fact that I went through with the trade. Therefore, by creating this thread, you have completely and totally made up my mind that I am not shipping out tomorrow. I will write refused/return to sender on your package when it arrives, and you'll get all your stuff back.
Thank you for trying Djembe, but it looks like this has gone from easily-fixable to total plane wreck.
U.N.inspector, Raspster, T.Rock, Cstrom80, Jhiaxus, Sylvadon, Jerukoth, wolf1306 are all members of this forum that can vouche for me. I've even sent EXTRA money to U.N.inspector to make a deal for him without him asking me. He's done the same for me. My heatware has a couple of other people who have bought laptops from me locally.
This thread isn't only going to hurt me, this is going to hurt you too dude. I was going to consider dealing with you in the future, when I just had cash to buy something instead of trading. I don't find that likely anymore.
