You Know...It's One Thing To Give A Friendly Bit Of Advice...It's Quite Another To Call Somebody A Crook. Status: A Call To Arms My Friends.
They're out there. You might walk right by one and never know it...until they contact you through the internet, where everybody thinks they can say anything they like about anyone they want. And craiglist is rife with the little Napoleon complex jack-holes. If you've spent any time selling there you already know this. And this is why Mr. Modtomic asks for a tiny bit of your time.
Somebody named Gazza Vorn was kind enough to send me an e-mail warning about their anti
Mr. Modtomic craigslist antics this evening. Check it out:
"Just so you know, I made a listing letting craigslist perusers aware of how you are overcharging people for those chairs and gave them links to Overstock where those exact and other Eames style chairs are for cheaper than you are trying to rip people off for. I know this is a business to you, but price accordingly and don't try to screw unknowing people over. (I put in the bold)
Cheers mate" - Gazza Vorn firstname.lastname@example.org (feel free to send them a note)
I'm not sure how I could possibly be "trying to rip people off" if I'm not holding their family
member hostage to get them to agree to pay my asking price. And as far as trying "to screw
unknowing people over"...well, I didn't even know. AND I'M INTO THIS STUFF!!!
Whatever. I provide a value added. People can Hold My Chairs In Their Hands. They Can
Try Them Out. Take Them For A Spin. Look The ACTUAL Chairs They Are Gonna Take
Home Over. Plus, I don't think that $112.50 each is an outrageous asking price per chair for
a set of Eames Shell Replicas. Don't like the price...ask for a better one or take your chances
with a cheaper set on line!
So anyway, I'm asking you - my loyal and lovely readership - to flex your mighty craigslist
flagging musculature and come to Mr. Modtomic's aid. Please click through (and then again)
to this egregiously inappropriate craigslist ad and then click "prohibited" in the upper right
corner. You can only be counted once (at any particular ISP) so re-clicking isn't necessary.
Thanks so much in advance.
