A lady posted about a number of 12 backs in the middle of the night with insanely low buy-it-now, it was a shark feeding frenzy but I was able to snag a couple, I upgraded my Luke and finally bought a D.S. Commander… only two more to go to complete the first twelve.
Is this recently? I'm flashing back to the same sort of fiasco about a year ago?
I remember that. Derk Ho (Uncle Gundy on RS) posted about them and everybody jumped on them. Some of the sore losers offered out more on the lots and one loser even emailed the winner instead of the seller. That pretty much turned into a HUGE ordeal and is one of the main reasons so many hate "auction outting". It's a shame so many fellow forum members turn out to be cutthroats.
Nobody outted any auctions, Uncle Gundy posted about them AFTER they had ended, since he recognized a few of the winners’ names from the RS “vinty community” and wanted to congratulate them. Then some dick- master-collector (or dealer, we’re not quite sure of that one, all we know is that he is a high standing, well-respected member
of the vintage community) emailed the seller and bought her out, leaving the rightful winners (myself included) with a nice big- bitter-ass- pie to munch on… that nincompoop Bryan Simmons jumped on me saying I was disgracing his online-home, what a knothead- didn’t even realize I was the same person when I called him a simpleton for dissing Kubrick, Shane was like, “hey man, chill it’s only a movie”- LOL, neuro surgeons, the lot of em’ I tells ya.
If I recall, you were nice enough to make mockery of the ordeal… always being the cute one, eh, Alvarez?
