very very easy to see its all SELLERS that have responded to this thread

why shouldnt i warn other buyers they are being ripped off?

i thought ebay encouraged HONEST feedback?

yep you are all SELLERS no doubt at all.

lets see you remove this post then don, that`ll be real clever, and i dont
think you are very clever at all.

if i walk into a bar and ask for a beer and the barman says `that`ll be 3
pouinds` and the guy standing next to me says `that bar across the road is
selling beers for 1.50` you lot would pounce on him and totally denounce
him???

what a bunch of idiots!!!

if my `crime` was against ebay rules why didnt they tell me? i am sure you
all know that ebay will always tell its users when they are breaking rules
so why didnt they tell me either when i wrote or phoned?

nothing. no warning, no row, no suspension NOTHING

what they done was sneaky and underhand.

If it was my pub I'd stick a pint pot in your face.

Oh. My. God.

You ARE totally clueless, aren't you?

No one was ripped off. You simply made a bad decision in not fully
researching your buying options. No ones fault but yours.

Since it was not honest, I don't see there is a problem there.

We are all eBay users, if that is what you are asking.

For a guy who could not even do a simple search at Amazon, them's
quite some words!

No, we might go to the other bar. Of course maybe I might ask how much
that pint was first before buying, right?

Singluar, just one. His name is Jim E.

They did. You didn't post their message or we'd have pointed it out to
you.

What was their first message?

So you got lucky, probably next time you won't be as lucky. Right?

Let's see, trying to hold a seller up for extortion is not sneaky?
Humm, odd set of values, bet you like Obama too...

Why are you being ripped off? You paid what you thought was the going
rate - in other words, a price you were prepared to pay. The fact that
the seller offered them on Amazon for a lower price is totally
immaterial. If you bought something from a village shop, and found the
same item at half the price in town, do you think the shopkeeper would
refund you? No, he'd laugh in your face.
