As you obviously missed the point of my original
post, I'll spell it out here in detail, in the
hopes that next time, you might stop to assess the
whole situation before posting.
As anyone who has spent any time on this forum can
tell you, I have never had a problem with people
selling cels. This would be ludicrous, since
otherwise none of us would have any cels --
they'd all still be in the hands of the Japanese
collectors and dealers who bought them from the
studio in the first place. (To use a common youth
colloquialism, "duh". :)
Therefore, in order for me to be a hypocrite,
which is to say for me to be doing the same thing
that the poster I chastised did, I would have to
purchase cels from Yahoo Japan, then turn around
as soon as they arrived and put them back up for
sale at literally three times the amount I had paid.
The day I do something like that, you can start
searching the basement for pods.
In the case of the cels I posted to eBay, anyone
who might have missed out on one when it was
initially sold will probably be quite happy to see
it on auction again -- this is a second chance for
them to purchase a cel they once missed, and most
likely even to get it for less than the price it
fetched the first time.
The buyer gets a good cel at a decent price, I get
a bit of cash to apply towards a new cel, and
everyone is happy. This is how the hobby is
supposed to work. It's all so much more fun when
everyone is civilized about it, and nobody in a
transaction is out to take advantage of somebody else.
Hope this helps to clarify the situation.
