+1 Amen to that, brother.
Is it not reasonable that the seller, unlike most of us who trawl this sub-forum, simply didn't care about the intrinsic or relative worth of the rackets? Heck, on my thrift shop binges I often pick up items of negligible worth or interest to me that I am willing to offload online cheap to hipsters on those arty sites like Etsy or whatever. I could care less about fetching a Sotheby's record price for a tatty print that may or may not be a Picasso that I found next to those three gleaming PS85 SV's in 9/10 condition.
By FF's reckoning I am a fool and deserving of the same scorn and vitriol as that reserved for his beloved scammers. At the end of the day, I am unwilling to invest any great emotional energy in realising the highest possible return on a trinket I have no concern for. I would rather devote my energies to maximising the return on the things I am more certain about. Thrift shopping and flipping exists in a Karmic Universe; it's swings and roundabouts. You win some, you lose some. Do good, you get rewarded down the track somehow, like when I donated some gear and found a Hi-Ten 30 and 50 the next day.
Embittered and vengeful misanthropy is a stench that sometimes pervades this forum.
