    anyone else here a big fan of ebay? what kind of things do you buy / look for? a friend of mine just recently put me on to ebay (i was always hesitant to buy from it) but recently ive had a blast buying all kinds of different shit. although i thought you could find stuff on there for a lot cheaper in stores, i havent ran into any crazy cheap deals. i recently bought some new subs, and some tattoo mags so far.

    so, who else here is a fan of ebay? any bad experiences? let's hear them.

    i browse ebay numerous times throughout the day just looking at
    whatever comes to my mind. i quite frequently buy and sell stuff
    off ebay, and think it's just a good idea. you can find shit for wayy
    cheaper than the price offered in stores, or you can find shit that
    you would not be able to find elsewhere.

    I've been tempted to buy some synths and drum machines off e-bay, but I'm worried about spending that much money and getting something that is broken. Those types of things really need to be tested out before you buy them if they are used.

    Also, I get really discouraged by the bidbots that people set up for those things, such a pain in the ass, I've lost several items because of that.

    ^^ Agreed, those shits piss me right off.

    I've lost some killer deals too because i was outbid in the last 3 seconds of the auction by someone's bot.

    Are you actually allowed to use those? Shit's a rip.

    yeah, getting bunk items is always in the back of my mind. and it
    is a pain in the ass to get the whole situation straightened out, but
    if worse comes to worse and say that your relative is a lawyer, and
    you will be forced to resort to legal action unless proper reimburse-
    ment(sp?) is made.


    or you can just find their addy, and stab them

    My name is b0b and I am an ebay addict.

    However this addiction has helped me in real life. My wife wanted to buy some artwork and enquired at the same time as someone else. The guy selling it said he would sell by sealed envelope auction, so we had to write down how much we'd pay for it (as did the other prospective buyer). My wife was saying £10 and I made her do £10.01. We hand the bids in and the other buyer had put £10 down so we won the auction by 1p. Ebay has given my valuable life skills now.
