(Never mind; gear spotted, not worth it)

  • Edit:

    Never mind. @soundcyst below had the right idea to not to highlight something I saw in an auction; the seller's unfair practices aren't worth drawing attention. It's the first I've seen of this kind of thing, but apparently it's not unknown around here.

  • this discussion is sort of a dead horse at this point.. the best way to discourage this sort of behavior is to literally ignore it. don't bid on it, don't bring attention to it, and let the seller waste his time.
