Why do you worry about how others decide to spend THEIR money?

Problems?

I don't care how they spend their money, I just thought it was good for a
laugh. I guess ***people like yourself would not see the humor in it. So I
guess I have a problem with ***people.

Because it raises price standards for everyone else.  Next time you go to
buy an item at a hamfest, the guy selling it will say, "well, I hear one of
these went for a million dollars on Ebay..."  Inexperienced bidders who don't
know what things are worth, and bidding wars between people who desperately
have to have an item, tend to raise the overall market value of an item more
than it should be.

Oh well, it's still THEIR money.

The guy can say whatever he wants... up to me whether I purchase or not.

Yep, no one is more experienced than you, right? And your bid is the benchmark, right?

Try not to be to pissed when you get outbid!

Boggling.

It's hopeless Scott. I just wanted to share a good laugh, and he had to go
and get anal. Go figure.

I suggest you contact eBay and tell them 'Y'all gotta stop this ridiculous bidding.

Y'all are allowing prices to rise to the point that I just cain't afford 'em."

I'd be interested in reading their reply.

Well it was interesting and good for a chuckle -- 29 bids on a SB-104A for
$1000 +
But DXace has a point -- you can ask whatever you want - on e-bay and
hamfests
If someone wants it they will pay "insane" prices -- so what ??
Think its called free enterprise -- hooray fer that.

At the next Hamfest when a guy quotes e-bay prices -- reply we ain't on
e-bay
I disagree with "it will inflate the prices"
Smart sellers and buyers know better
Or should
"Inexperienced bidders" are just that  -- ebay not withstanding

The thing about e-bay is it is world wide -- thousands of potential bidders
and some one who has coveted an item for years will come rising up out the
woodwork

Remember -- money is no object with some bidders in an auction, have never
seen that at a hamfest - generally it is a very poor place to sell things.

I offered a rare ham book at a hamfest for $25 -- guy sed I'll give you
5  -- I replied which Chapter do you want (;-)

Sold on e-bay for $28
Case Closed

Exactly. An auction is just that, an auction.

I noticed your QRZ listing doesn't list your age. Is it perhaps
because you're 14 or 15? You certainly act like it.

Grow up. Everyone to you is tard boy.

I'm debating if I'd miss any worthwhile posts by plonking you.

Anyone (other than DxAce) care to comment if I'd miss anything by
plonking him?

I'm older than you, 'tard boy.

How about those guts you accused me of not having, 'tard boy?

Don't push your luck.
