Vintagemc313 A ZERO for Attitude

I was going to buy some brass from this guy. He listed that money orders were the prefered method of payment but in his reply he offered paypal in the email message to me plus the 4% fee.

Not that the fee was a big deal, I responded that paypal will NOW allow you to transfer money for free if you select their personal payment option. Something I didn't know until the other day.

The guy wanted the paypal fee regardless and berated in his emails. ( I was stupid, a clown, since I had zero post..why should he care)

Yes, I usually don't post, I'm a classified buyer for the most part, seldom do I sell. It's what I like to do.

I posted the following response in his add

First off the fee wasn't the issue. It was your conduct.

Second, I didn't ask about the paypal, you offered plus the 4% fee. I responded that paypal will NOW allow you to transfer money for free if you select their personal payment option. Something I didn't know until the other day.

You responded by berating me in your email and justifying if by stating since I had no post where "why should you care"

As I replied then, with a **** poor attitude like that you can keep your brass, I was buying more to help you out that anything.

I do think you should treat people with a little more respect. You never know who you are dealing with on the forums and just because all you see in front of you is your screen doesn't justify a condescending attitude or verbal abuse.

Yes, I was upset, in 20+ years of trading on the net (even before there were ISPs) you Sir are the only one that has ever addressed me like that.

I've left out the PM with the name call but this is what lead up to it.

The OP of the Buy/Sell thread has the SOLE right to accept whatever method of payment he/she wants. If you don't like the fee, then I suggest to move on.

Vintage gave full disclosure of his fee and regardless if he's set up to have it waived or not. Some people view PayPal is a pain to use or just don't like to use it for personal reasons. Whatever the case is, the price was disclosed on what he charges.

Whatever is said of your intelligence level in PRIVATE message, is, well, private. Don't see the need to post the PMs in public since there wasn't a deal that took place. His opinion of how you might be jerking him around doesn't merit a negative feedback.

The point Vintage was probably trying to make is the very thing you state. Why bother with someone that abuses the Gun Show forum? This forum is set up as a perk to established members that at least provided the minimum number of posts in the discussion forums. With the combination of this issue and posting a negative feedback, when it's not even a feedback, leads me to believe you might want to step back and take a deep breath.
