You should have gone ahead and bid anyway :) That's another "condition"
that I'll be removing from my future auctions(along with the "paypal" only
condition). I've taken into consideration lately that my conditions have
taken a turn for the worse. I wrote and revised those rules after a couple
of bad dealings with non-paying bidders; and afer a couple bidders took a
few matters into their own hands (such as adjusting shipping themselves when
a -fixed- rate was clearly stated).
I honestly think that my rules more or less just made -me- "feel" better.
Besides, when people "snipe" auctions they usually don't meet half of the
"conditions" anyway. And sniping is something that really can't be avoided
on ebay unfortunately.
You know, only about 3 people have ever sent me that info anyway(-before-
they bid), and I've -NEVER- cancelled a bid in an auction yet. I always
give people the benefit of the doubt. In fact, the person that won the vdb
penny lot had 2 negatives, didn't mail me first, but has already paid
through paypal so it just goes to show: I need to lighten up a little bit.
So bottom line: my future auctions will be much more relaxed.
Just an FYI if anyone's interested: The next lot that I'll probably be
putting up will be Franklin halves.
Talk to you guys later, Thanks for all of the response and feedback.
