I couldnt agree more Jskidder. If I had a $1 for everytime someone said " sold out everywhere" or "worth $350 retail" I would have a $H&TLOAD of dollars.
Nique, I understand you have been pissed about what appears to be a lot of people here over the last year or so.
Mods, sellers, buyers ect ect ect, as this is not the first time you have had a problem with selling practices, comments, yaddah yaddah yadahh. Their has been the odd time or 2 that your complaints have had some reasoning behind them, but lots of the time they dont.( in my opinion)
Not to be rude, but save yourself the trouble and dont sell here if it causes you so much pain. Members here know where to find pairs and roughly how much they are worth, so stop getting pissed off when you hit the Rack for $90 jeans and try to double the price( figuritively speaking), and members get pissed off and post negative comments.
It will work on ebay, but most people here are too knowledgable about pricing and value ect to bite.
I admit people have said unfair things sometimes, but you are briging it on yourself %90 percent of the time. You dont sound like you have a legit point to make, you sound like you are whining ( in my opinion), and that immidiatly turns people off from wanting to buy/sell or not make comments in your threads.
Especially when you overestimate value, or always claim to sell nothing but the rarest and hard to find jeans. And buyers have a right to be pissed if they see you are asking for way more then retail, or claim you only want your money back ect when in reality, your making a killing.
You are free to charge whatever you want, but dont complain if you always overegagerate price/rarity and ask for huge bucks, and some members call you on it.
I dont agree with members writing were to find them cheaper, it should be reported and I or another mod will delete the comments. But did you ever seem to notice that people always seem to do it to you and not others?
Mods will delete and deal with it if the members are out of line, but I can distinctly remember at least 2 heated pms from you to me wanting to ban or temp ban numerous posters who didnt really cross the line in your posts.
