Ebay feedback system tipped towards buyers to screw sellers

Ebay feedback modeling itself after Wal-mart. Where the customer is always right even when they are wrong!

This rant about Ebay feedback should dovetail nicely with a previous article I have done since in the past I have mentioned how I do sales on Ebay, primarily in the electronics section of the site. I do a lot of both buying and selling of items and thus I have seen both sides of the fence in terms of how things are done. It used to be with Ebay that feedback measured what kind of person you are to do business with. That people both buyers and sellers can give you positive, neutral, or negative feedback, depending how nice you were or how much of a complete prick you are.

Of Gods and Men.

Gods are we.

ATA
CONNECT 1200

Okay, with a rather epic subject title of “Gods” like that I’d have to pretty much justify why I’m thinking of stuff like that at 3am. fingers half frozen and listening to dubstep.fm which right now is more like chillstep then anything. No wub at all, reminds me of listening to the band XXYYXX (i’ll insert into the title of this rant) . But I’ll save that for another rant.

Or decides to commit vehicular homicide. The famous words of every politician started from middle school principles to mayors of cities is ”

We have a zero tolerance and no exceptions towards violent behavior

– The average MPS school principle.

Saftey First! – It’s all for the lulz

Saftey First?

(BLAHBLAH COMPANY) needs your help! We’re holding a friendly contest to see if someone out there can come up with a great safety related slogan that we can use to help drive us towards a company culture that promotes Saftey First!

I think every company eventually does this where they hold a raffle for something that really should be paid for by a professional. A lot like how a city flag is built it’s something that really should be left to designers.

Message of Thought Control.

Your thought is public domain the moment it comes from your mouth!

I would like to say one very short message about thought control. In many fandom’s a message that seems to cause a bit of drama in the artistic community and to me is the biggest level of lazy “Henny Penny” entitlement mentality and it’s vastly disturbing. The sentiment is as follows:

Dead angels speak to me sometimes. From Secondlife

Moments of clarity through bits of Secondlife

The vapor-lock of an empty club that you rez into can tell you megs upon megs of stories if you just sit quietly enough to look at the objects and the files within them. Who created them, and why. Most of it is a desperate cry for attention, or a document to say that you were simply here. Often times I am gleefully misdirected to a source of information I do not like. I shall share a fragment of the data-stream the goes across the screen.
