i'd say you're actually far worse than the person who tried to buy stux from you - you're breaking the rules, they're just being enterprising.

there's nothing wrong with buying things to resell them - if he's able to sell it on for more, all it means is that you sold it for too little.

I put it for a little price so that actual fans might actually be able to buy it.
Not so that a big man comes along and whacks up the price.

then a more sensible suggestion would have been to offer it to people on the forum, rather than putting it on a site where people scour it looking for bargains to sell on for more Rolling Eyes

That's true, but most of the regulars have Stux already. Most that I can think of anyway.

so when it became clear no "true fans" were after it, you decided to put it on cheap on ebay anyway, and then you get bitchy when someone decides its worth more than that and so buys it and sells it on for more?

You have some well crap logic....i'll leave it at that before ric shouts at me. Rolling Eyes

Lets not forget that there are a lot of Reuben fans out there who aren't on this Forum and who don't have Stux. They're the people who buy these things off Ebay for huge amounts of money. Notice there are 1200 members but maybe 20/30 regular posters.

I think what Faye did was kind and noble, but sadly would never work as someone would always recognise a money maker when they see one. I'm not ashamed to admit a couple of months back I attempted to purchase a copy of Stux from an online dealer for the price of 3 with the intention of flogging it on Ebay. I may be evil and greedy, but kindness and honesty doesn't pay the bills. As it happens it was a dud listing and he didn't have it any more.

I'd say I don't care, I paid 2. Twice the price maybe, but it's not going to break the bank.
