    Interesting how the post-er and the post-ee are both from Australia. Maybe they're neighbors. You know, same house different room. :rolleyes:



    Hmmmmmmmm... something smells rotten down unda. Padding their feedback maybe? :suprised: :p

    It's possible, the thread I saw that posted in was one where someone payed $999 for a 7800 GT (and not a 512 MB variety)...and with further digging some oddities came up in the bidders and biddies past feedback and biddings...

    Paying for a folder though...that's about right up there with someone having posted on b.net forums about a "new hack" that lets people steal one's items. As an alleged method to dupe one's items (I guess he wanted to dupe), it entailed standing in one corner and dropping all one's items with a "see I'm standing over here, I can't do anything". Then holding the Alt key down while hitting F1 through F5 in quick succession. He came back, and the guy and his items were of course gone...

    Everyone said alt + F4 and laughed Umm... :D

    An Xbox 360 Box to be exact. Some ass bid 608.00 for it when it stated in the item description that the box was empty. the poor soul won the auction, wether or not he paid is unknown.

    I once saw an orange that was in the shape of a vagina. It sold for over $250 and was shipped in dry ice.
