Effectively yes. 

But there was already a thread for Iron Heart.  My position was, that by sponsoring a new Iron Heart thread, I'd confuse the customer base, steal orders from my existing retailers for no overall increase in sales.

I asked why, given that, would I want to sponsor a thread.

I was told to pay up or get banned.....

I took what seemed the more sensible option.... :)

My favourite part of his recent posting is him referring to resellers as scumbags, despite his previous...
Maybe resellers are not everyone's cup of tea, but I know which I would rather have in the world

Bitching about resellers is about as smart as complaining about bad weather or wasps in the summer

And at least inform the buyer if your plans have changed prior to the transaction.
Think it, be it.

The price was really good for his stuff too.

If you make the deal via pm then stick to it. Seems pretty simple to me.

* I need to blow off some steam!

I bought a pair of 888’s from seller who I will not name at this time. This would be my 3rd or 4th purchase on the forum. I have also done a size swap / trade with another member which went quite smoothly. So my experiences up to this point have been all positive, so shout out to those dudes. After agreeing to an amount for said item I submit immediate payment to seller, he also asks if I can send as gift to save him some money on the fees ($3.00). So against my better judgement, I send understanding the potential consequences here. He messaged that item shipped, and I ask for tracking info. He says there is none... tracking would have been too expensive to add, so without notice he just decided to ship without it. It’s been over a month and item never arrives. This seller decided to cut corners ship without tracking info because he wanted to save even more money on this sale. Please note in the listing he note pants had damage in cuff from drag, they were also a size too big for me. So I was taking a gamble on buying these altogether.  Am I to assume responsibility for this item which has never landed in my hands? Seller refuses to fully refund, saying because he priced item so cheap he can only refund half of the purchase amount. I agree only because at this point he can just walk away and not send anything back. I don’t really have a way to dispute this because again payment was sent as gift. In good faith I even offered to pay in full if item does ever arrive. I’ve also offered references from prior transactions on this forum. So I chalk this up at a loss at this point. I’d like to note He sent me a copy of receipt but there is nothing on there that is unique to the purchase except my name that would help. I’ve contacted local post office and they are unable to locate or help without any tracking information. I’m a stand up guy, show respect and expect nothing less from other gentleman. This dude has really f#cked up that energy!
 
*I hope this will help others in future transactions.   >:(

I learned the "gift" lesson the hard way on this forum as well, when I was screwed over for >200 €. I rather pay the fee as an extra then pay as friends&family or gift. The only exception are members I already met in person and see as friends who I can trust.

I accept this a lesson learned. I ignored my better judgement, also the age old PayPal rule no payments as gift.

Small Packet International Surface... Takes 1-2 months to €urope... But the problem is you're in the States so I don't see how they'd use a boat  :D

It’s probably strapped to a turtles back and walking in the wrong direction.
