Subject description: eBay listing for Modular has Bigoted Racist commentary in public forum
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Hi,

It is rare for me to post on a subject like this, but, here is the eBay listing:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Buchla-System-100-Vintage-Modular-Synthesizer_W0QQitemZ130371919473QQcmdZViewItemQQptZKeyboards_MIDI?hash=item1e5ac59e71#ht_500wt_1182

I wrote to ask an honest question since I do like to *collect* some vintage gear from time to time.

The seller, *nvbn* on the eBay address responded in an extremely derogatory way about Canadians (I am Canadian living in the USA) and I felt I should draw your attention to it since I would not wish someone to make a purchase from a racist bigot. I asked about a YouTube or video view and his response was nasty. In fact I have ordered a 112 module Modcan as a part of my studio (and when Bruce completes this it will be demoed on video and more updates here) - however, I was genuinely interested in the Buchla but never expected such venom for simple request.

Please, join me and file a complaint against nvbn, to eBay on bigotry. I do not think it is appropriate conduct to by racist, derogatory or nasty to an entire culture (and all I did was ask a simple question). If he had sent me his reply in private I would have thought nothing further of it, but, because he chose to speak out in public, I cannot stay silent.

Please help - as a community, we can make a difference to eBay and have his listing and comments removed.

Here are my credentials:

(and I am on YouTube with CS80)

Any complaints filed to eBay will be of help if you also feel his public comments about Canadians and others are out of place on eBay listings. Please help send a message about this kind of behavior.

Thanks,

Arun
:despair:

I'd love to help, but my experience with e-bay is that we can't make a difference. E-bay are a shady setup to say the very least. They protect con-artists and pirates by hiding their feedback. I have personal experience with this and treat any dealings on e-bay with extreme caution. I have no trust in the way e-bay is run anymore. If I were you, I would simply bite my tongue and turn away.

NB: This post is my own personal opinion and in no way reflects the collective or personal opinion or beliefs of electro-music.com.

The guy is an obvious ass, and I don't think he is worthy of your time. Let it go; he is making a fool of himself and will hurt any potential sale. By joining in, you could end up looking silly.
