    I was just informed by a player on Atlantic that 90% of the rares community has no respect for me anymore after 15 years off and on collecting. I would certainly like to get to the root of the problem. Here is what was said about me:

    I scam people selling items that are not rare as rares.
    I am very rude to other rares collectors.
    I cheat people out of rares.

    If by chance I have offended anyone, I sincerely apologize. I am a rares collector and a merchant. I do buy for as little as I have to pay for an item and sell for as much as I can get for it. That is being a merchant. That seems to be the only way I am able to get gold to buy rares. With the very rare exception of getting a drop from an event.

    I have quit many times and sold off my entire collection. I have come back many times and rebuilt. I have never sold anything intentionally as a rare item that wasn't rare. I do know the difference between a Server Birth Rare, True Rare, No Longer Spawning Rare and items that are rare through the scarcity of the items. I have never misrepresented any of my items with knowledge, though it is possible that I have been misinformed on an item or two in the past.

    I wish to remain a respected member of the rares community. If anyone has any kind of problem with me please let me know so that I may take care of it and make amends.

    Thanks!

    I think you will find many rare collectors do exactly what you do. It's part of the game, if people don't want stuff being resold don't sell for cheap :)

    90% of people who claim to speak for 90% of any given community are usually 90% full of it. My advice would be to ignore 90% of what was said.

    Been there. Only when they start on me it's '90% of Stratics posters'. Even when you know it's not true, it still hurts and makes you wonder if you're in the wrong. :grouphug:
