* only my last name is stripped and his eBay ID
$45 isn't enough, [my last name]... but I'll take it (grumble, grumble).Then I'll buy a 600-watt supply from the seller in California whose ad you probably ripped off... and I'll keep watch on every item you try to peddle on eBay from now on, at least any Mac stuff. I'm a member of eBay's volunteer fraud patrol, and Macs and Yamaha pro music gear are my turf... stay off it. CA's attorney general is threatening to close eBay down because of all the fraud that goes on here (he says it's about 10% of all frauds reported in CA).
So, I'll accept the $45 and keep the power supply. Consider yourself lucky.
Of course I alerted eBay to this "volunteer fraud patrol" remark.
People ... understand that reason is almost always met with reason. With me, consideration and kindness is usually met with double the favor and double the respect. If he had sent a more considerate and well reasoned email ... I would have gladly offered him a full purchase price + shipping refund with no questions asked.
