Am I the only one that has noticed that Stratics shoots down anti-rares traders sentiments real fast? It is quite possible that this elite 1% has stratics in their hip pockets? Since they have their own Traders Hall, Rares Trading forum and Holiday trading forum here, one can only speculate. I for one have had it with the Rares Traders, Event rares and the whole steaming pile of BS. If I were technologically smarter I'd love to "fix the code" and make ALL of them disappear FOREVER! Unfortunately I can't even work a @#$%#*& Iphone!! (Keep the smart ass cracks to yourself please.) Okay by now you probably wondering what has Jirel been smoking, drinking or got up her butt. Well lastnight I log into UO for my last time to ask about an old friend UO that I heard had died. I witnessed my shard assailed and BLACKMAILED by the rudest, crudest, most assinine Rarers Trader ever. He spammed how how was taking Weezer's Museum Event items to Pacific and if we wanted our history back we could pay 10 mil per item. He informed us we only had last night to buy back our history. You need to understand there were items going back to the old EM events. We're talking about alot of items. The guy had already turned down 3 billion gold, a castle, a Luna house and a 11 yr old UO acct. So to me he came off as rubbing our shard's nose in it! He had no intention of selling anything. It was the UO equvalent of "NA-NANA-NA-NA LOOKIE WHAT I HAVE AND U CAN'T HAVE IT!" These people haven't left the elementary(primary) school playground mentality!!! Maybe its time UO Players stop supporting rares and rares trading. As for me I neither have the energy nor will to fight, I can only hope I can inspire other UO Players to pick up the torch and fight. Otherwise expect this to happen to every shard.
