One look at the 'bad trader thread' in the feedback forums easily illustrates the lack of bad deals going on here(it was last updated almost a year ago).
If 'several folks' don't want to deal with you..then they don't-- no harm there. As was already mentioned..it's easier to seal a deal with folks with high feedback/post ratings than lesser knowns. We should all just be gullible and trust a little known? C'mon imagine what the world would be like today if we were that naive..
I personally never even saw your user name before until this post and I'm one of the more active trader/resellers in here. Sorry, I just can't give the benefit of the doubt to someone unknown to me....The world works this way.
Look at ebay...more folks are inclined to bid from someone they know or has an acceptable rating than someone that doesn't.
. You have to build your rep here..you don't just stumble in and get one!
