More eBay stuff ...

You know that auction I was pissed about a month or so back ... I still haven't had any response from the seller. I'm almost 100% sure that they had blithely anticipated getting many times what the item "sold" for and have just ignored my various attempts to complete the sale (on the plus side, they have not collected the PayPal money). It pisses me off, though, as they were offering a real sharp set of cards.

Another eBay thought ... I'm amazed when people say they won't deal with BUYERS who don't have high star ratings! I mean, it's one thing for a SELLER to not have a high star rating (the folks above had a "0"), but it is VERY hard to build up a high BUYER rating unless you just go NUTS on eBay due to them only counting "unique" feedback. I have a dozen positive feedbacks from one guy that I've bought a bunch of stuff from, but that just counts as ONE. Since nearly all my eBay activity has been in a narrow market (primarily Pokemon cards for Daughter #1), I tend to deal with the same sellers quite a bit, so my rating goes up very slowly.

I'm glad I held off reporting slow auctions, though ... one gal I bought from on 9/3 just got the goods to me this weekend. I did a "buy it now" with PayPal and it STILL took her four weeks to ship it! What are these people thinking??? Aside from the above detailed "ducked" auction, I'm only waiting for one thing from my first-week-of-September buys ... although I have 15 new itmes to wait for now!
