Can you report him to eBay (was it through their messaging system)?
I told him I would do so if I received any more harassing messages from him. I also thanked him for using the eBay messaging system as I know have evidence of his abuse!

heh heh.

But I didn't end up doing anything. Haven't heard from him since.

Is there a way to block sellers? I know I could make a list of sellers I want to avoid, but is there a way to do so in ebay?

I'm not saying this isn't worth it but this really isn't the way to go about selling things. So throwing it away is better than £50 or whatever.

I read listings like that and I'm reminded of some child throwing a tantrum by threatening someone with action of some kind. It's like an idiots use of pseudo-psychology. I don't need to know that you are going to throw your crappy VHS collection away... that has no impact on my buying decision at all. LMAO!

Hahaha....I hope for his sake that he's better at video game designing.....
and for the record, although i do like valiant, and i do like to play video games, i am not neo-european (or whatever) artist mentioned above. i can draw veins almost as good though! at least while doing drunken handstands!
So who the hell did this monstrous work of art? It almost tempts me to see if anyone won the thing and ask for a back scan of it just to see. Also a google search of Todd Valiant turns up nothing. Who is this "Todd Valiant"?

Yes... God forbid someone has to start from somewhere. Where is the sense in joining a message board and only starting at 0 posts? I mean really, who want's to answer a question by a weak *SQUEE* zero post. The legitimacy of someone is totally based on the amounts of post one has made and anyone who hasn't made a post is obviously unworthy of an answer. I could continue ranting sarcastically but that would increase my post count and we can't have that, can we. No, I have to continue existing in my abyss of The Land of Null and hope that one day I can achieve almost 700 posts like you and be a God among the Nulls. Lead us to post greatness oh lord of posts!

It's not you - it's weird that you still have a 0 post count despite having made more than 0 posts. Nothing personal, really.

You misunderstood. There is some forum glitch where it's not counting new member's posts. You technically can't have 0 posts. If you post once, you have one post. However, you (and another guy) are showing up with 0 posts. We were joking that the Null (from Archer and Armstrong) who worship a void and the number zero were posting on the board.

I apologized about the confusion. Unless you were being sarcastic and just going along with the joke, which in case: :funnypost: and :lol:

I welcome new members with open arms. Unless you're Canadian. We have too many already, and unlike others, I don't see them useful as food.

Welcome to the board!
I was unaware of such a glitch so I do apologize. I wasn't too angry so I did use excessive amounts of sarcasam to try to try and stay within a non-offensive sense of mild irritation. My first statement was the extent of my irritation. I will apologize again as that wasn't the first time that I was pounced on for having 0 posts. Ironically, it was on another comic book forum when I asked another question that I was hoping for an answer to. I guess I let past hostility cloud my judgement for a moment. Been a long time fan of Valiant but never got into the Archer and Armstrong series. Mainly because our local comic book store went out of business so I didn't get a chance to get any more Valiant comics for a long time (spent too much time and money on Harbinger and X-O Manowar). Now I'm babbling. I will have to look back into the Archer and Armstrong comics. Not only do they sound interesting but maybe then I'll be privy to this inside joke :D

Wow, did not know they graded games either. I remember buying an unopened Shadowman for a couple of bucks several years ago, maybe I should send it in....
