See, here is exactly the type of thing I'm
talking about. . . I'm not talking about if you
have the *right* to do anything about someone
reselling a cel you sold to them. I'm talking
about if you *care* or not. Because if enough
people cared and refused to buy from known
resellers, then there would be a hell of a lot
fewer resellers! I'm not talking about someone
who buys a cel and then a week later their car
gets totalled and their pet falls sick, so they
need the money - I'm talking about the "damn! look
how cheap this is, I can sell it for a fortune on
Ebay" dorks that wind up driving up the prices on
cels and getting in the way of everyone's fun.
So if that happened - would you not sell to the
person again if they asked you for a sale,
Msmsytique?? And are you glad that you didn't
sell to the person in the first place after what
you found out about him, Shura-chan??
The above quotes indicate to me that it *would*
matter. **EVEN IF** there's no law against being
a lowlife reseller. Sure, the person has the
right to sell the cel, to trade the cel, to shred
the cel, and anything else that everyone has been
listing as an example of what new owners are
allowed to do with their cels if they want to.
I'm more than aware that a cel is not a pet that
needs to be taken care of and treated nicely. . .
But people you deal with in connection to those
cels have certain expectations and certain ideas
about proper conduct within this community. And
reselling a cel you've just gotten (especially
for no other reason but profit) doesn't rate
highly with many people here - REGARDLESS OF if
they have the "right" to care. Opinions of people
are formed when others view that person's
actions - and the people forming the opinion do
not need to have the "right" to care about
something you're doing before they form an
opinion about you from knowing what you have done.
I'd be interested to hear what people think about
insta-reselling. . . IGNORING the fact that they
might not have the "right" to care.
Many Sharp Smiles,
(PS - And, sorry. . . The owner of any store can
refuse to do business with you for any reason
they want. As a matter of fact, they do not even
need to *give* you a reason.)
