The Powerseller of Pompano Beach

July 27th, 2008 · 318 comments

If you’ve ever tut-tutted over the consequences of big-box stores and online retailers overtaking small businesses, you’ll be heartened to hear that some folks have figured out how to bring those old-fashioned mom-n-pop ideas about customer service into the digital age…with the help of a big ol’ corporation called eBay!

While browsing the auction site for some new shades, my pal Josh stumbled across one such example — a listing from a Florida-based eBayer who goes by the name of whiteblizzard70.

PLEASE READ MY SHIPPING AND REFUND (RETURNS) RULES, AS THAT IS IMPORTANT.

This goes on for several more paragraphs (see for yourself), but I’ll skip to my favorite part — the postscript.

PS I LOVE OVERSEAS BUYERS! NEVER A PROBLEM.

(Josh decided not to bid.)

P.S. This post reminded me of another note my friend Josh told me about a few months back — a piece of reader mail he’d received as an editor at the music mag Blender. Granted, most readers who take the time to write in to magazines like Blender are at least a little bit…off, to say the least. But the last part of this letter — a response to an “Ask Blender” column about the urban legend that Debbie Harry of Blondie was once abducted by Ted Bundy — is genuinely spine-chilling. (Passive-aggressive? Not so much. Creepy? Um, yes.)

      Aaaaamen! What the hell is this guy selling? I have always noticed that the longer and more P/A the one-way contract is on an E-Bay item, is in direct proportional relationship to the crappier the auctioned item turns out to be.

      Eeeaasy, WhiteBlizzard70! There have been some good deals made through E-Bay for both seller and buyer alike. And you know darned well that there have been great disappointments in other instances for both sides. I regret bidding on a collection of edible panties that the seller had assured everyone said items had never been taken out of the package. But I learned a valuable lesson from this: Never mix meds and alcohol and then bid on e-bay…’nuff said!

      Worse, CB…they were tucked up in a year old edition of some small town Nevade newspaper…an educational experience for me this delving into the darker side of human sexuality. I dropped the whole thing in the trash, hauled out to the Dumpster (removing any traces of my name and address from the packaging), and have since tried very hard to forget…

      Now I just mix meds, alcohol, and PAN! Yeehaw!

    Good to know that serial killers keep an accurate accounting of who was in their car and who was not…I guess.
    But do they really have the right to get pissed if someone asks, “Did you give me a ride once and not kill me? Why was I not worthy?” :???:

      Perhaps the lucky victims saw the interior of the car decorated with handmade smiley faces and refused to get into the car.

      Gasp! Even better–a serial killer who is overpowered by his potential victims and can’t lure ANYONE into his creepy car!

      Would this then make him a serial approacher instead?

      Personally I find it interesting that he’s tired of non-victims contacting him and hope he’s harassed until the day he dies.
      If the murders don’t haunt him, perhaps the letters will.
      As part of that, making fun of him is the least I can do to make his life more miserable if he reads this.
      I’ll leave the studying to the experts.

      Now, the Godfather and Goodfellas on the other hand romanticize bad behavior.

    Note 1 reminds me of a guy I almost rented a place from. When I asked for a showing he said, “hey, I can show it to you but you’ve got to be there, I mean, I have a life too. None of this, ‘oh yeah, I want to see it’ then not show up. I mean, that’s so wrong. I have a life, stuff to do.” and on and on. I felt like I needed to apologize for…something.

    also, his voice mail said he was Pablo Escobar and his email was voodoostick. And he showed me the place with only swim trunks on.

    I like how the ebay guy accuses ebay of having a “draconian (communist)” approach to feedback and that’s why he won’t leave any. I don’t think communism allows for feedback. That would defeat the purpose.

      So you’d prefer that someone be upset over a misunderstanding and as a result give you a negative rating, than to have them ask even the simplest question and assure a meeting of the minds over what to expect in your transaction?

      I really have to question that reasoning.

      What you need to understand is that there are no stupid questions, just people who are too arrogant to realize that they possess information someone else may not.

    I hate ebay . I purchased a book from someone on ebay recently and it was sent to the wrong address. I finally got it (after ages, and much forwarding), so I left the seller a “neutral” feedback saying that she shipped my item to the wrong address.

    She responded and blasted me with “What you did was against ebay policy” because “it was a honest mistake that it was sent to the wrong address” and “neutral feedback is no different from negative feedback,” but that I “should have still left positive feedback” for her. (Never mind that she was a “Powerseller” with over 2000 feedback already… Not that my positive feedback would have really mean anything to her.)

    Man, I wish I had known that so I could have left her a negative feedback instead!

    So, if “sent to a different address than the one the purchaser provided” doesn’t warrant neutral feedback, what does?

      Your feedback sucks and I expect it will only get worse as you are clearly verbally abusive to your customers and are now unable to leave retaliatory negs for the negs you are destined to receive down the line.

      If your stars continue to plummet you will lose your PS status and your search visibility will be eroded as well. This means buyers will have to search harder to find your nutty ass and many won’t bother.

      Spend some time reading the Powerseller discussion board while you are still a powerseller. You’ll learn something about how to run your business in a more professional and proactive manner but remember, eBay is not for everyone.

      Keep racking up those complaints (yes, I know buyers are complaining even if they’re aren’t negging) and they will NARU you for good.

      You are cheating yourself if you think Parcel Post is always best for packages over 1 pound as many of your items will fit in Priority Mail flat rate boxes and your buyers will rate you higher if their crap arrives sooner even if they have to pay a few pennies more.

      Clean fingernails go a long way towards inspiring buyer confidence. Do you eat or prepare food with those hands? Ick!

      If you want people to laugh WITH you, as opposed to laughing AT you, you have to be funny and by funny I mean “funny ha ha” not “funny peculiar.” You’re already quite accomplished at the latter.

    If the seller finds eBay’s new rules to be so “draconian (communist)” (because draconian and communist are interchangeable and definitely mean exactly the same thing), then why are they still on eBay?

    I don’t use eBay, so I’m not sure what rules and regulations they have for sellers and feeback, but it seems like negative feedback would be a problem between the seller and the person who left the feedback. What role does the Evil Communist eBay have in this?

    Also, I like how they have problems only with “A HOME-GROWN IMBECILES.” Can I assume, dear seller, you are of the same stock due to your rampant caps-lock and inability to realize that “a” doesn’t belong in front of a pluralized word?

      Well,
      As a customer I would say a seller / merchant that has this note posted up for all of his potential customers to see is an a$$wipe and a wast of my time to purchase anything from…
      Because he doesn’t come across as the type of merchant who want’s to help his customers at all.
      And then there’s the ol’ saying of …
      “The customer is always right”
      And when reading this note I would be under the impression that most of his customers found out the hard way that this guy is an a$$wipe and a wast of their time.

      Crash, personally, I hate the saying “The customer is always right” since it seems that the customer is usually wrong. However, it seems that when it comes to this seller, yes, the customer is indeed always right.

      Wait, so if you are “euro-American,” does that mean that your “home-grown imbeciles” are “non-euro-American”? Did you just admit to being racist in front of Jesus, your mother, and the entire world?

      Not so much a saying really as it is intended to be a salesperson’s state of mind.
      You can call the customer an imbecile and have her (and her cash) walk away, or you can nod your head in agreement while steering the customer into a purchase.
      Honey, vinegar and flies, and all that.

      He’s a “Continent-ist”. Or, as we usually put it, a snob.

      No shipping to Germany, France and other countries where prohibited.

    P.S.

    I was going to say that I was surprised that they have a 98.4% positive rating, but since they only allow feedback for some transactions, I’m getting the feeling that they only allow feedback for the transactions that go well (or where the buyer is too lacking in testicular fortitude to complain) and disallow feedback for the sales where the buyer was not satisfied with the service. Since this seller feels the need to put this caps-locked diatribe in the item description, I bet that they dick over their customers left and right. Either that or they’re just slightly nutty. Or both. Which means that we should keep an eye out on whiteblizzard70 for future fun an games.

    Kids, this is why you use Amazon Marketplace. They’re not very fond of sellers who dick their customers around and tell you to take your lumps like a man. Or woman. Or mature adult hermaphrodite. Whatever.

    Oh my, I completely overlooked whiteblizzard70′s post. Whiteblizzard70, I have some advice for you.

    If your rant was indeed supposed to be sarcastic (which I’m sure it wasn’t), sarcasm falls flat in text form. We have no idea what your tone of voice is or what facial expressions you’re making as your typing it.

    That being said, I am 100% convinced that you were being completely serious. Usually when you accuse others of having no sense of humor when you’re obviously trying to be funny, it’s just a ploy to save face and try to make yourself appear to be less of an ass than you actually are. It never works. Ever. Don’t do it if you don’t want to be mocked in a public forum like the internet.

    That being said, whiteblizzard70, please continue to post your angry and off-kilter rants on the internet. It amuses us greatly and we thoroughly enjoy discussing them and mocking your blatant stupidity. The idiocy displayed in this blog is a shining beacon of joy in our otherwise dull and dreary day and we appreciate your contribution.

    Thank you so much whiteblizzard70. *sniff* I’m getting a little verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves. I’ll give you a topic. The Progressive Era was neither progressive nor an era. Discuss!

If that were the case, I’d be fine with it, since he/she still provides us with such great amusements. But I’m not 100% on that. I’m about about 50-50 on whether he/she’s serious or just shitting us.

    WHITEBLIZZARD70,

    You’re one of those sellers/people that is always blaming others. “It wasn’t my shitty packing job… the post office must have abused it.” You wave your finger around at everyone else instead of taking responsibility for your own actions.

    You set up a sale with an ALL CAPS rant to create a series of loop holes and excuses to get you off the proverbial hook. If something does go wrong you can always point back and say “If you had read my description thoroughly…” I read negative feedback you left for someone that said “I never promised to ship quickly…” A potential buyer now has to not only read what you are saying but guess at what you’re leaving out.

    It’s funny that you’re so angry about eBay’s new policy. eBay changed its feedback system BECAUSE of sellers like you. They did it to protect the unsatisfied customer. The one who PAYS you and then receives a sub-par service or product. Remember that your time and energy is no more important than theirs.

    Here’s a tip… Be the bigger person, go the extra mile. Not only will it make a difference in someone else’s life, it will make a difference in yours.

      I didn’t get the whole “NEGATIVE FEEDBACK WILL GIVE YOU ONLY THE SAME.CONTACT SELLER FOR REFUND 1ST” retort WB70 for someone who complained about a multimeter missing some of a number… I know personally I have had to leave negative feedback to get a seller’s attention (which it did) – you can retract it later if the seller deals with things accordingly and fixes the issue.

      What WB70 said sounds like something a 5th grader would say. Or Pee-Wee Herman: “I’m rubber, you’re glue – whatever you say bounces off me and sticks onto you!”

      God, man! Grow a set of balls and some sense of responsibility and decency.

      Who wants to bet WB70 is an old guy, not unlike the Fred Sanford of the New Millenium. He sits at home in his bathrobe, smelling of cheap cigars and cheaper bourbon, typing out his manifestos in form of eBay auctions. He has finally came to the point where he must sell his ex-wife’s wedding ring to make ends meet…

      I wonder if he also says “I’m coming Elizabeth!” very often…

      http://www.utilikilts.com/

      I’m torn on this one. While I can understand the desire for a more convenient kilt, part of me wants to smack people in the head and tell them if they want to wear a kilt, do it the right way.

      Here’s a rather amusing description of the “Spartan” style Utilikilt.

      “On the track, on the court or kicking back on a Saturday with a beer in hand, the Spartan is the ultimate in UK comfort. Built for manly exertions, the Spartan has more style than you’ve got energy.

      American made breathable nylon with contrasting side stripes and waistband.

      Pants suck. And so do shorts. The Spartan Utilikilt is built to take all the sweat, aggression and action you can give it. Half kilt, half boxing shorts (with some basketball styling thrown in), if the Spartan isn’t the most comfortable, breathable, most active thing you’ve ever worn, then you must be dead below the waist.

      * The Spartan is the only Utilikilt to feature an elastic waistband, keeping it tight and in place as you show off your basketball moves or shove down “just one more” cheeseburger.
      * The Spartan’s Marsupial Pouch pocket keeps your keys and wallet comfortably below your boys as you sweat to the eighties. The pouch is one big pocket, easily accessed from either side and built to hold more cargo than you’d expect.
      * Leg Striping on both sides of the Spartan adds to its sporty feel.
      * Proud UK Label at the center of the waist lets all the fools on the court know you’re representing for Utilikilts.

      And remember ladies, the Spartan is the perfect way to encourage your Utilikilt-wearing man to finally get off his ass and use that Nordic Track you bought off the TV.”

      OMG! How did you miss THIS one?? LMAO! Remember, whomever wins the auction gets the wedding ring… and we have to dress accordingly!! :D

      This Utilitux combines the comfort of a kilt and the tradition of a tuxedo and definitely makes a statement at any formal occasion.

      In addition, the Utilitux is made with the major rock-star Egyptian-style tiered hem. On the tiered hem, the center back is longer than the sides, and each pleat steps up to the standard length at the sides. It looks superfine. (want a plain ol’ straight hemline? Call us, and we’ll cut it down for you… for a price.)

      The lightweight wool is a beautiful matte black, and is offset on the sides with the standard shiny black vertical stripes.

      Waist snaps allow you to choose how formal you want to be: no belt, belted, or with a cummerbund.

      The Utilitux ensures Cinderella won’t miss seeing you at the ball!

      Okay, the Utilitux has made up my mind for me. Only people of Celtic descent (in part or full) may wear a kilt (actual kilts, not the Utili-variety) and it must be made of your family tartan. Sorry non-Celt folks, but the Utilikilt has ruined the kilting experience for everyone else.

      Too bad my family tartan looks like donkey vomit. And I’m not a dude, so the kilt thing is kinda out for me. :/

    I’ve done some research this afternoon, and it turns out Whiteblizzard is not a crazy obnoxious Nazi punk, as he tried to have us believe, but is in fact a powerful wizard. His real name is Blizzard the White. Look closer at the writing on this ring. Blizzard has procured this ring from a place he’s not allowed to name, and is looking for a volunteer to carry it to the Mountain of Doom where the ring is to be destroyed; the vast armies of homegrown imbeciles will then lose their power and perish. Only the best and the bravest will be chosen for this job; those that will never leave negative feedback and have the testicular fortitude to wait 14 days for the Ring to arrive in the mail. Also, the nasty fingernails in the picture belong to Gollum, who never cleans them, so get off Blizzard’s case already – his are impeccable.

      I’ve got plenty of comments for you, just some that can’t be said in mixed company. Its summer you know, and kids are out on the internet, and I don’t want to warp their fragile little minds. But I do have some Suggestions

      First of all, LOSE THE FUCKING CAPS!

      Secondly, TREAT PEOPLE THE WAY YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED (CAPs aren’t that nice now, are they?)

      Third, there is a saying about catching flies with honey instead of vinegar. I am not gonna quote that… instead I will suggest that maybe you be a little more hospitable on your auctions, and possibly you might get MORE people bidding which means MORE people (see how I used the CAPs to annunciate instead of using them all the time and giving the impression that I am angry and yelling? yeah) anyways… MORE people will bid on your items, since they would be more willing to deal with you and you crazy ways, which will drive the price higher and higher until you make out like a bandit….

      Ever think of that one, sweetheart?

      Second, I do not do eBay to make a living off it. It’s for a pocket change. So I do not care about the bottom line that much. It’s not my items anyway. I am just having fun. Is that illegal?

      I am compassionate… I don’t laugh at slow kids, I don’t stare and quadrapalegics or the guy at 7/11′s baby arm (much)… but I do know that you can make the font on your internet bigger (hint, hold down CTRL and roll your mouse wheel) and I figure if people had a hard time seeing the basic font size of the internet on a regular basis, they would either just stop browsing, have someone else browse FOR them, (once again, annunciate!), OR change the font size… so it shouldn’t be your problem!

      As for having fun being illegal? I do believe it actually is in two or three states and Puerto Rico. Just to let you know you might want to read up on your state’s laws and legislation regarding Fun.

      No I didn’t get it mixed up. I actually said that if SOMEONE (i.e. a potential bidder) had bad vision, they would have done the things I listed.

      But you could be talking to Crash – not like we would actually know since your grasp of the English language apparently doesn’t cover “Greetings: When To Specify Who You Are Speaking To In Group Environments 101″ – I guess you were absent that day?

      I’m pretty sure they are different CB… and well, Bids is still at Zero. So I don’t know… maybe its the threatening nature of the auction post that scares people off, or possibly all the hits are from here and people are just laughing at him.

      Probably the latter… or maybe a little from Column A and a little from Column B.

      All caps are more difficult to read. I thought everyone knew that, but apparently some have deemed research necessary. Penultimate point, first column, first page: “All capital print greatly retards the speed of reading in comparison with regular lowercase type.”

      So basically you’re making us all retarded.

      What is a “caucasian” anyway? And how would anybody explain the term “afro-american”?

      WB70, Caucasian relates to the Caucasus region between the Black and Caspian seas.
      Afro is a prefix (look up the word) meaning of or pertaining to Africa.
      Afro-American is a term (no longer used) which refers to “Americans of African descent” ( the more current terminology).

      I hope this homegrown imbeciles was able to lessen your considerable ignorance in some small way. ;-)

    As an ebay seller myself, I can totally sympathize with this dude. The fucking morons that bid/buy on ebay is amazing.

    There should be a minimum IQ score to get an account. Even that wouldn’t solve the problem; however, it would keep some of the riffraff away!

    I’ve read all of the posts (thus far) and I have some advice for WhiteBlizzard70.

    If you make those rules a part of your item description, you will not need to worry about some “home-grown imbeciles” from Ohio or anywhere else.

    People on e-Bay are looking to buy items, not read a novel. They can go to Barnes & Noble, Amazon, the public library or wherever else for that. By the time they get done reading your shipping “rules”, they will have moved on to another seller who has less to say.

    Personally, I am from Ohio and I can tell you that imbeciles are everywhere – not just in my state. And as far as I know, we don’t grow them at home.

    Also, according to your rules, you only seem to have problems with mentally retarded people. Perhaps you should make your potential bidders take an IQ test before they place a bid with you. Anyone with an IQ over 50 need not refer to your rules. Anyone with an IQ under 50 would not be able to read your rules but hey – at least you’ll have an audience of people who might care. I doubt it – my neice is 8 (the mental age of an imbecile) and I can tell you that even SHE would not buy from you.

    Whether you are selling for income or for pocket change only, you won’t get very far insulting your potential buyers. Perhaps you should have simply asked those bidders you had a problem with not to bid on your products anymore. Seems like a more reasonable, more INTELLIGENT way to handle the problem. The only one who seems to have anger management issues would be you. Only someone who is very angry could have written a list of shipping rules like that.
