Pwnt. I hate it when people try to cash in on the fruits of other peoples labor, especially when those are nonprofit organisations.


---------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear webmasters of the Free Spore Rings,


Just a heads up: somebody is asking money to supply people with the URL to your websites on eBay. Because this is contrary to your nonprofit nature I thought it right to let you know so you can, if desired, file an official complaint with eBay.

I wish the best upon you and your fine organisations.

Not that it really matters, but did anyone check the history(bids,sold) of this?

Just curious if people were actually being taken or if this is a fresh little scam....

What a dick.

Kudos w_S on taking initiative to put a stop to this.

I checked out the actual ebay listings and that has got to be one of the most lame things I have ever seen. Unbelievable.

He's already sold the information on ebay to a number of people (check his feedback and some of the closed auctions), so yeah, he's made money off of it.  Not cool  :thumbdown:

Absolutely. It would be lame to order from the sporerings and then resell, but even that level of fraud was too much effort I guess.

Basically paying 12 dollars for a sporeprint is magnificent value for the dollar, but earning $$$ off nonprofit organisations (who at the moment have supply problems) is a bit cheap.

Imagine walking in the street and some shady character approaching you who basically says that if you pay him $5 he will take you to a store that sells many things you might need.

He should grow his own and sell the spores.

Thats funny, this is the best part though
"THEY DO ASK FOR DONATIONS OF SPORE PRINTS BUT IT'S NOT AT ALL REQUIRED, BUT IF U CAN PLEASE HELP THEM OUT!"

What a prick, why not just start a site and sell mislabeled spore syringes for 80 bucks, with cool names like "star gazers, and cock smokers"

You all are just pissed he's making money, nothing wrong with it, he's smart enough to think of a way to make easy money. Good for him, I'd do the same. So many of you all are fake as can be.

Everyone is hung up on the old thread issue, who really cares? Im new to the community, and I want to check out old topics, nothing really new has caught my attention.
      You post something on someones thread, from when god knows when, the buzzards swarm in like a flock of hungry seagulls. Is there an alarm that goes off when someone hits an old topic?
