What’s the point in having a blog if one can’t use it to grind ones axe? Yes folks, I am a victim…a victim of bbb…bad fff...feedback. I can hardly say the words.

This is what happened.; I met this guy…

On Ebay….

Seeing as times are hard, I am selling my collection of autographed pictures. Ordinarily, I am not a ‘seller’.  I am a buyer. Have been for over twelve years and I have retained a 100% feedback rating throughout. Very proud of it I was, until this cad disguised as an Ebayer (he's a dealer) came along and destroyed it out of sheer spite.

I sold him five postcards. It was stated in the details that they were printed signatures and he got them for £1.99 each.  After allegedly stitching him up on postage (even though I reduced the original total), I sent them off.

I had a message a day later, telling me he wasn’t happy with the condition because there had some marks on the back. Forty/sixty year old postcards! Was he insane? I wondered. Nevertheless and even though my policy was ‘no returns’, I told him I would give him his money back, seeing as he wasn’t happy.

Next minute (I kid you not) he left insulting feedback and my rating dropped to 86.6%. I complained franticly, called him a tosser, or something to that effect, contacted Ebay who deleted one of his comments, but now I am still, after 12, yes, TWELVE years, a bearer of negative feedback. Oh the shame!

So here’s my axe; ‘my blog’, and I’m grinding it all over the name of this cad-esque Ebayer, ‘The demonteacher’, who has left the remnants of his miserable existence all over my home page.

Tosser!

Well said! Sounds completely justified. I love the word 'tosser'- you can really spit it out with feeling.

I've had negative feedback before and I've been doing this for over 13 years. They are for the most part idiots who couldn't find there way out of a paper bag. I'm just surprised you went so long unscathed. I guess it because you were buying and not selling. SO now after 12 years that new car smell is gone, you got your first ding in the door, but now you can park it anywhere you like.

Like kerfuffle, it's nice to hear, read, and sometimes understand words bantered about and only the ignorant says I cannot understand.

Like Bud said you now can park it anywhere - your first ding has made an impression.

You now need to become famous, then they will clamor for you book touted as bio or fiction.

Thanks for kerfuffle. I think it would make a great title; just got to think of a story to go with it. Maybe my articles on raising my husband..hahahahaaaaa

I love the car analogy. I think I'm going to declare myself the worst Ebayer on teh planet.
I keep getting everything wrong. I sent a picture to someone and they messaged me this morning to say I hadn't included the COA in the envelope.
I eventually found it crumpled up in the rubbish. Don't know how it got there.
