    I would just like to take a second of eeryones time and say something here. Please don't get offended, just a note on courtesy. 3 times now i have had people from the site contact me about books i listed to sell. Never got paid the first time ( this was a DTbay auction that the person actually won), even after repeated emails and doing my best to be understanding and cooperative. Recently i had someone contact me, tell me they wanted the book and would paypal me right away. I packaged eveyrhting up to ship and then the emailed me and said they found it cheaper from someone else on the site and no longer wanted my book. I was polite and said no big deal and let it go. Now they just contacted me again, agreed to buy 3 books from me, paid me alreadyand i was aboutt o shiop the books tomorrow, because once again i already packed them all up and now they email me and let me know they misunderstood what my book was, and they found it cheaper somewhere else.

    This is realy frustrating and rude in my opinion, if you agree to buy somethig then you have made a contract, granted there are no enforcable rules here like ebay but people should consider it the same type of thing. We are all supposed to be somewhat of a family here. If you don't really want the book don't waste peoples time.

    Makes me wonder if we shouldn't do away with any type of sales onthe site.
    Sorry if i offended anyone, i did not mention any names on purpose, so there is no reason for anyone to know who they were, i really just wanted this to be a reminder on how to treat deals between each other.

    thanks for your time and i welcome any comments !

    Dang Rusty, I am really sorry that has happened to you. I've been walking around in a world where I thought everyone always followed through with sales stuff.

    Certainly my experience is that I have always been paid in a timely manner.

    I'm not sure how to handle the situation, we could certainly use existing functionality on the board to track this kind of thing but I'm not sure how much it would help from the sellers side.

    Very sorry it happened though--I do believe once a committment is made, it should be followed through with. I'm that way about everything.

    I agree. Do your due diligence FIRST. Then fulfill your contract. It's the honorable thing.

    Rusty, was it the same person who stiffed you both times?

    Yeah, its actually been 3 times, with 2 people the last person did it twice inthe last 2 months or so. We have exchanged some not so pleasant emails, today and he just sent me one, using great language and nice names and threatened to to make sure it was told all over this site, i will leave it up to him to decide if he wants to put his self out there, i won't mention his name yet, but if he does trash talk me i will post a copy of all the emails we have exchanged and let everyone decide for them selves.
    I know i am not on here as much any more and i do miss it but family takes a lot of time with a new baby, i hope no one sees me as just a seller (profit maker as i was called today) I rarely make a ny thingon books i sell

    We don't feel that way Rusty and you are welcome to stop by as much as possible.

    I do hope it can be resolved but let me know if you need me to get involved somehow...

    I wouldn't say trash anyone, but realistically, as you say, tdt.com is like a tight knit family. Word will get around and people will avoid sales with members if they are a problem.

    I don't really think stopping sales on the site is the best idea, as there are tons of us that do everything properly both buying and selling and by avoiding eBay we can save each other a fair amount!

    That said, I hope everything can be worked out.

    Also, as I'm sure many of us can, I can attest to Rusty being a great guy and a great seller!

    I totally agree and we will not stop selling on this site. Anytime someone can conduct a fee free transaction...its one more chance to stick it to Ebay.

    The vast majority of transactions are smooth as silk I believe. My 20 auctions in the last two months have gone down without a hitch.

    I agree, we should keep selling, I was just annoyed and upset. I am sure i was a bit more rude than i needed to be in my emails, but hopefully it will end here, i don't plan on responding to any more emails or sending anymore about it. Hopefully he can let it go, he got his money back. Just call it a learning experience, and move along.
    thanks again for the kind words and support, I miss it around here, i need t try and be a bit more active again !! The baby takes up so much time though !!!!!!!

    Wow... that really sucks. I am so grateful to anyone and everyone who has ever helped me or anyone else in finding a book. Its like you have many friends looking out for you.

    Personally, I would love to know who it was. Fair warning to the rest of us. I dont see it as anything other than buyer/seller beware... but thats just me.

    Agree with all the above posts (except posting the member's name - not sure it's the right thing to do unless he/she does it again - I say let sleeping dogs lie) - and congrats on the baby, Rusty!

    Very true Dolan. I've been helped by so many here. It feels like visiting and sharing with family each visit here. But, with family also comes some bumps in the road. The issue wasn't with me but I'm not sure anyone's name should be posted. That's between the two members.

    I think the person should be named, there is a lot of trust based actions going on at this site and if someone is breaking the trust everyone should know. How would it be any different than feedback on ebay?

    I both agree and disagree. You make a valid point, however its still unfair to "call out" another member. Maybe those interested parties should PM Rusty? It just doesn't seem in the interests of the community as a whole to cause more strife or ostracize another member (I know thats not the intent, but it would be the effect of naming names).

    Can't we all just get along? Really though I have made some great deals with a few people on this site and would trust anyone here more than I would ebay. That being said I won't mail something unless I've already been paid and although it may be inconvienient would let them cancel up until the time I ship it(usually the next day). After that they bought it and if they don't want it they can sell it unless they have some valid reason (which I would make sure before I made the deal there would not be) to return it. It's just the price of doing business.

    Rusty-

    Am sorry you have had troubled with a wishy-washy member of this site. I agree that naming names and such would only hurt the site. If it is really a serious matter or becomes abusive behind the scenes, I'd take let site management step in (just ask Matt, me, Jerome, Patrick or Karen, among others).
    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
    Luke : Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand

    While I presume Rusty to honest and truthful, we have heard his side only. Without hearing the other side Rusty got burned. That being said, unless the other person comes forth on their own, I am not sure naming them now would be beneficial.

    I have no intention of publicly naming anyone, i was merely putting a little note out there to let others know to try and be fair and honest with who your dealing with, this is all trust based, we have no legal legs to fall back on as with ebay or any other auction site. I have done numerous deals with people on here, buying selling and even trading book for book with no problems at all. As was stated earlier there are always bumps in the road, i was just disappointed because it happened twice with the same person, i let it go the first time with out a word.
    With that said i am prepared to let it go, i don't wish to name them in the open and i don't wish to cause any problems on the site. 99.9 % of the members here are honest and trustworthy people.

    Rusty...sorry to hear about the issue. You are taking the high road (as everyone else has also said) about not giving out the persons name. Now that the situation is out and others know about it, the less likely the other person will continue to flip-flop on deals and it also shows that even in our small community ,that like a family, things happen but some wont be tolerated.

    See my signature below v v v

    Also BIG congrates on the new collector.....

    Hey Rusty, glad to see you posting here (subject matter notwithstanding). I know that based on our past dealings, I would not hesitate to recommend you as trustworthy seller.

    On the issue of price, there is always a range for every item. John said it above so clearly: "Do your due diligence FIRST. Then fulfill your contract. It's the honorable thing."

    Congrats again on the baby!

    Wow! Wish I had the money for those.

    Hey PlayPhish, is there anyway you could ask Audrey if she is getting Matt's email concerning the fundraiser? I'm afraid they might be going todash for some reason.

    Well I'm still trying to get rid of my lot of UK first editions. In fact it is now at $500. I have it up at eBay, so I'll provide the link.

    To put this is perspective a UK Thinner with Ribbon just sold for $175, and I paid $300 for my UK The Shinning. So in essence you can get another 30 books for $25. It's at a ridiculous price, but these are ridiculous times.
