if that is going to be the reselling rule,then apply it equally to all buyers and sellers on this site.
When someone buys a very specific item on this forum for $50 -- and a few weeks later turns around and offers that very same item on this forum for $75, how can it not bring up questions? Luke didn't decide, he simply pointed out that this exact same item being sold for $75 was just recently purchased on this forum by the same member for $50 -- his other comments were removed. I added my own comments as I'm sorry, but for the life of me, I cannot come to any other conclusion (but I am open to any reasonable explanation as I've said in my previous posts).
Please explain why someone would buy a reel on this forum - and then sell the exact same model in the same condition with the box and manual a few weeks later if not to make a profit? I'm all ears. Sure, he could own "several" of them -- it's entirely possible -- but why would someone that owns so many of this specific reel that that one more would be too many purchase another one a few ago, all of which are in the same condition? Let's be reasonable folks...I'm trying to make sense of this.
Example - I want X number of widgits, right now I have X number of widgits - I see a widgit for sale - do I buy it? No, I have enough widgits. Different scenario - I want Y number of widgits, right now I have Y - 1 widgits - I see one for sale so I buy it and now have Y number of widgits. All the sudden Y is too many widgits so I have to sell one? But I just bought it, right? OK...fine...I'm fickle...all the sudden I have too many. So I'll sell one -- in the same place I just bought the last one, the one that made me all the sudden have too many forcing me to have to sell one -- except I'm gonna mark it up 50% and then sell it. But since that would be against the rules, I'm gonna sell a different yet identical widgit to the one I just purchased in the place I just purchased it?!
I'm trying to wrap my head around it
The way I see it - and I am always willing to accept that I am mistaken
- this reel was purchased for $50 with the intention of selling it for $75. I can't really come to any other conclusion -- but I'm open to suggestions
As far as the number of posts thing - do you still see Luke's original comments? They were removed -- and regardless of how many posts you have here, if I think the rules are being circumvented, I'm gonna follow up on it. And like Luke said in his post that was allowed to remain in this thread, if I'm wrong, I will apologize.
