    Some people within this forum enjoy pointing fingers at certain people. This message is aimed to specific distinguished rare collectors that some of you may know and trust. I will not mention any names, but this is just a warning to benefit all while trading.

    And to be honest, most of the core members of the community may already know these specific situations.

    I have never lied about being a thief and stealing items from other players, regardless if they were rare or not (look at my signature for pete's sake). People may agree or disagree with my ways or methods, but it is the way that I will currently and continue to play. However, I do not agree that people who are known to be "honest" rare collectors within the Rares community would do such things:


    (1) "A rare collector (A) buying up a collection to preserve the history of the shard and then turning around and selling it all on another shard for more money."

    (2) "A rare collector (B) trying to screw a non-collector out of a one-of-a-kind item for a very generic rare."

    (3) "A rare collector (C) passing off lesser rares valued as several 100 millions of gold."


    As I mentioned, these individuals try to come across as being reputable. In any situation, regardless of who it may or may not be, be informed and understand what you are doing. If you do not know the value or what you have, go to someone you trust to appraise it. Use a reliable broker. Think about people's intentions.


    In addition, if those certain members want to fess up to their actions, it will truly show what type of "character" you have....because I know the full details on who did what.


    And to Exhibition A, I'm not shocked at all.

    I have plenty of logs to prove my point. People can PM or ICQ me directly if they want more detail.

    And i'm shocked that you would have anything to say. I know you just love following "this guy" around. You should get a new hobby.

    Maturity? Aren't you trying to blackmail people with nonsense just because you didn't get your way? Are you mad that someone took your bottle?

    New hobby? I consider helping the community be free of riff raff a small chore. About the same difficulty as doing the dishes or cleaning the litterbox.

    Maybe you should take your own advice. I mean, you seem to feel so self important here that you need your own threads. In actuality none of these threads even belong here.

    My advice, try another forum. :)

    [Auction] Selling TONS of Serverbirth Items and Rares

    I'm pretty sure my auction still stands, and your rubbish was emptied out like a litterbox.

    If my thread(s) don't belong here....then why is that one still up?

    And you seem to feel so self important that you need to reply to everything I post.

    Don't need advice when I am right. :D

    So if I ever decided to quit collecting and sale my collection, this makes me a "crook" or a scumbag like you?!?!

    Nah, I pretty much think if you own an item(s), then you have the right to do whatever with it.

    And just because you have "thief" on a Stratics page, doesn't excuse your pitiful existence. Not everyone you've scammed reads the drama filled mess.

    Either way, a POS is a POS, and you've got it in spades.

    I don't understand your form of English.

    Don't even know what you are referring to with the "owning" of item(s)....

    You know nothing about me, but if it makes you feel better in an attempt to call my existence "pitiful" ... hope it helps. I, on the other hand, know who I am and what I do and can easily separate what is a game played in my spare time to real life.

    Difference between me and pretty much the rest of the population is that I can easily switch caps from playing a despicable rogue in game to an all around good guy in real life. You can believe what you want and make the opinions, but not one of you know anything about who is the player behind Oblivion.

    I suppose your agenda is to drag others to your level? You have a little black book or something? Are you threatening to out people? or just using it as leverage?

    There seems to be a lot of drama over pixels none of us really own. Is that the power you claim? You "own" pixels? You steal pixels? You cheat people out of pixels for fun?

    I am not making fun of or intending any disrespect to the rares collecting community. We all play for our own reasons.

    Collect rares, murder counts, or mongbat items... all good with me.

    Steal, scam, be a pedator if you will in game... Not a damn thing I can do about it. But... If you bring that to Stratics. If you become a disruptive individual and try to use the "rules" as some sort of "forum lawyer". We will have issues you and I.
