Some gonadless scumbag stole my eBay auction!

My auction: ...

The dickless asshole's auction: ...

Not only did he still one of my images, but he stole the DESCRIPTION! Yes, he shortened it, but it's more or less word-for-word the same.

UGH

I already reported the bastard to eBay. Hopefully they resolve it.

[Edit - It appears they are no longer the same. As such, I'm removing the link so it doesn't look like you are promoting your auction. D-]

Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.





I'm sorry, I don't know why I said that.

If the image is hotlinked, just change yours and then rename a picture of some lady blowing a horse or something for his.....

Oh....and I agree that this one is hardly a big deal....there's been much worse. Hell, i've used pics from other auctions before if they are better than the ones i have. no big whoop.

I've seen people steal my auction listings before and I've stolen other people's. It's not a big deal. If they direct link to your images, have some fun. Otherwise, relax. You'll live longer.

No big deal. I've done it. I even had some guy email me and chew me out. I just laughed. He said, "Boy, your auction looks awfully familiar." I told him that it should since it was basically his.

Damnit, so much for sympathy. And the guy didn't even hotlink to my pictures, ruining any chance I had for messing with him. What nerve!

Here's hoping for better luck, next time.

It's a big deal to me, but as long as they ask first, I don't have a problem. Of course, I watermark all pics with my eBay information so it makes the perp look like a bigger dumbass.
