AAaaargh! I now have a negative feedback from Marjory_warrenne on Furbid because of the Seafoam kitty hat.
Yes, the one SHE ended a month ago with "buy it now" and then never paid for.

The negative feedback?
Left by Marjory_warrenne on Fri Jan 21 10:19:08 2005 for "Seafoam / White kitty hat" (furwear1103961101)
Rating:Negative
Reason given:
Lied to and item was put back up for sale with out my knowing.

Lied to? And I quote, from an email dated 1/3/05: I'm expecting that payment WILL be in the mail today, or the item is being relisted and I am leaving negative feedback, as it has now been two weeks since you agreed to buy this item. -Maly

I emailed Furbid's administrator, I don't really know what else to do. So frustrated.

Some furbidders are total asshats. There was one guy who bumped up some auction I had to something rather impressive ... I only expected $10-15 but they seemed willing to pay $40.

I wait and wait .. "oh I'll send out a check soon" .. "oh I had a problem and will send it out at 'x' date" ... 'x' comes and goes "oh I'll send it out tomorrow". I finally set a definite 'do or die' date -- it comes and goes with no check. I never hear from him again.

I checked the feedback and he apparently did the same stunt to someone else. -- Not long after that he sort of disappeard (at least that username did). I never did re-list the item .. I probably should.

Yeah, I had the same thing pretty much exactly. Item started at $20, and she ended it with "buy it now" for way more than I was expecting, and then the excuses begin. First her wallet was stolen (before bidding?), then she had the flu, then she was busy breaking up with her boyfriend, then like two other things happened...
By the time it was all said and done, I had given her five or six chances to get it right, and it ended with her leaving me negative feedback!

Ugh, I'm about ready to wipe my hands of the whole auction thing, since out of four auctions originally listed, bid on, and closed, I only have received payment for...one of them? For that, I must say bubblerat totally and completely rocks, and will send you a smile with her payment, because she's sugar sweet. :)

I've kinda wondered about that at times as well.

One thing I do appreciate at Furbid -- and would like to see happen on e-Bay -- is the 'bids within the last 10 minutes advance the auction close time to 10 minutes'. No more idiotic last-second sniping.

You can ban people from bidding on your auctions, but you can't remove them once they've put a bid in.
Also, replying to feedback on Furbid isn't possible, which is something that I hope changes in the future.

You can if you mail the admin.

One time Assinio (Kevin Duane) was bidding on one of my auctions and he has a HUGE track record for not paying the artists for commissioned work (ever wonder where those 'cat scratches' and 'stripe tease' CD's come from?). I mailed the admin and he removed the bids.
Ofcourse he read Duane's mail first that I was commiting libel against him and bitched at me first like a right retard. How hard is it that when two people are having a dispute and they both mailed you to read both e-mails before taking action?

If you thought that was scary -- check out this picture. Yes, opossums really can open their mouths that wide.

Oh, I believe it, I have a possum skull and the second I held it, I realized that a possum was NOTHING I would ever want to be bitten with! The teeth are so sharp!
(btw, I think my opossum skull died of natural causes)

Reminds me of a thylacine, or tazmanian tiger/wolf, http://galliform.bhs.mq.edu.au/Images/Thylacine.jpg

But don't worry, it's extinct...

.... or so people think (Muaha)

This same problem exists in Ebay. Folks leave legitimate feedback, good or bad, while asshats leave revenge feedback. Surely there must be a better way.

At least Ebay allows folks to reply to feedback they do not like.

I'm pretty sure that if you'd like to respond to the comment (its not like ebay, but it'll just be another feedback under her's on the list) you can type in the item number, and your name, and see if you can leave feedback for "yourself" in a sense, replying to her's. To let the other people who do check your feedback that payment from Majory_warrenne was not recieved when the item was purchased with buy it now, e-mail was sent, but not responded to.

or whatever.
At least its worth a try.

Sorry about the crappy buyer. I ban anyone from my auctions who don't pay or give me crap or whatever. Its kind of roundabout to get even to the ban bidder page.

Actually, Ayukawataur was awesome and adjusted it to be a negative feedback, removing Marjory's comment and just posting a "edited by the administrator" thing in the comment area, where the negative comment used to be.
All Ayu wanted was for me to send her copies of the emails between Marjory and I, which I gladly did. :)
