    Manti is just trying to boost his bracelets value by showing what the last one sold for lol =)

    They should have asked for deposits for every bid done until they get out.

    That said, it is a bit ridiculous that Nabin didn't end up paying the majority of it.

    heh.

    Remind me to never under-charge any members of the rares community for an item again!

    Based on the actual thread I think they just wanted the item.

    Awesome thread is awesome.

    Gold is worthless, denying a jackass what he wants, priceless.

    One can only ASSUME that I really wanted it.

    I'll leave that all up to your imagination.

    You don't seem like a popular guy ohmyGED but in this case, to get back at people trying to get back at me, I would have kept on bidding as well.

    In my book, they lost this fight...

    Only in UO.

    And that's a good thing.

    Congratulations to the winners.

    And once again: Never again will I under-charge a member of the rares collector community when I get an item. *chuckles*

    Seems I've been thinking too small all these years!

    All matter of opinion, which people have more than the right to have.

    As for who I really am --- people can come to a conclusion when they meet me in person, not judgement based on a MMORPG.


    Yet again, this provides me with more entertainment than you can possibly imagine. I must thank the players that take a game far too seriously.



    In the end, I win.

    Based on the replies to both of my post, I have come to the conclusion that you have a very unique way of interpreting my responses.

    Maybe this was all just a scheme to see how a specific person would react to my actions....

    Yet again, who knows?



    Wait....I do!

    That thread shows everything whats wrong with the UO community...too much money in the hands of some people.

    Paying gold worth nearly 2000 dollars for some stupid named bracelet that can't even do anything is just .....

    Some people take computer games way too seriously.

    Very very true. I'd prefer if they'd kept this thread back in dupers corner where it came from rather than linking it here.

    I think this action is great. Here is a guy whom openly states that he should not be trusted, yet over and over people do so. He clearly says that he will rip you off using the best tools around, you're own greed. Here he managed to indicate his desire for a item but due to people wishing not for it to fall into his hands they band together to out bid him for nothing worth any value.

    His reputation has grown, the collectors look like possible fools and I bet the day after are closing upon buyers remorse. If not the people who added funds should do the math to see what the return when it appears they recieved nothing.

    The true winner was the seller IMO. Oh my if this was all a set up:grouphug:
