*Looks at Pentax Collector's status, jaw drops.*

Banned after ONE post? ONE HOUR after the FIRST POST and already gone?

Is this a record?

Whether it was him or not, that's still a pretty spectacular progression from first post to.... um... last post.

I am rather loosely acquainted with the former member PentaxIsDoomed. PID lasted three hours, the former record holder has now been bested.

I am the seller of the 83mm Takumar lens referenced herein. Under the Uniform Commercial Code as well as Michigan Law which governs the offer as that is where I am located, if such an offer was made, and I never received it if it were, and had I accepted such offer, even if made in jest, a binding contract would have been formed and he would have been obligated to pay me the offered price or I could have sued him in Federal Court and I would win. This is Basic Contracts 101. Offer + Acceptance = Contract and Obligation for Performance. He would be obligated to pay me, and would be obligated to tender the item to him once payment was received. About time some people grow up. If you have a problem with an item that is for sale, best to simply accept it and move on. Otherwise, you may wind up digging a hole you find yourself paying a price to climb out of.
I hear what you are saying, but, frankly, I think you have misinterpreted what I said. Anyway, pleasing to hear you comment on this forum, but, my comments regarding price stand. It might be a rare item but that does not mean you can ask a silly price for it and expect a buyer (I sense expectation with the long list of terms and conditions and expression of what seems to be tainted experiences). We can all look on and watch with popcorn to see if you get a buyer or not and I certainly won't lose any sleep over it.

And can I also say that you have to be prepared for the criticism that has flowed from your ebay listing. All the best with your listing and as a departing comment may I suggest you offer MUCH better product photos. No one will buy that lens for the price you are asking with the grainy images provided. An image tells a thousand words and your product photos aren't encouraging a would be buyer.

We seem to have put a bit of a burr under his saddle:


He actually made several posts in this thread that were deleted from the mod queue before becoming visible. One of the ironies here is that our law quoting legal expert friend, in one of those deleted posts, was replying to dcshooter.
Somehow he ended up banned from the forum.

It makes me wonder if it was the actual Stinky Seller or a forum member trolling us. Either way, mildly entertaining.

I step away from a thread for a day or two and... miss all the fun!
I got more than a few laughs from all this.

I noticed the original link says it is not available, but going to View Seller's Other Items, there it is again! Free standard shipping now, at a $3,499.00 price.

And NOW, in his listing, PF features prominently:

QuoteQuote:
NOTE: Unfortunately, there are some immature individuals who purport themselves to be adults presently discussing this lens and corresponding listing on the Pentax Forum. They believe it is both funny and acceptable to make fraudulent offers, to harass me by asking foolish questions, and to waste my time by inquiring about specifics already answered in this listing.

Therefore, on any inquiry which I believe to be an attempt at harassing me over this item, I will not respond and will report all such conduct to Ebay.

Furthermore, if you make me an offer, even in jest, and I accept that offer, under the Uniform Commercial Code, Michigan law (as this item is being sold from a location in Michigan), California law (under which Ebay is governed) and Ebay's legal policies, you have entered into a binding and irrevocable contract to purchase this lens at the agreed upon price and you are therefore contractually obligated to immediately pay me in full for this lens plus all corresponding shipping costs as set forth herein.

Offer + Acceptance = Contractual Agreement. This is Contracts 101 taught to all first year law students.

Making prank offers has consequences and will be fully prosecuted.

If you don't like what I am asking for this lens, or in my sales approach then it's simple. Tune this listing out and move on however, it's my item to price and sell as I wish.

I like the part where he intimates that he is an adult and then threatens to take his ball and go home if one doesn't play by his rules. Poor little guy.

I think I'm heading to eBay to ask him if I can use it on a K-r.

I really enjoyed what he said about going to federal court if a person makes an offer and then doesn't pay.


First thing, not a federal crime. Secondly, all he could do is small claims court and good luck getting payment after that.

He cites contract law but, apparently, is uneducated as to the difference between contract law and criminal law.

Could there be an explicit or implied offer if the seller has stated: I AM NOT ACCEPTING OFFERS ON THIS ITEM. LISTING PRICE IS FIRM!

I don't understand how the seller could suggest that h/she could 'accept' any offer when the eBay listing clearly denies such a possibility.

Excellent point.
As the legal genius himself said:

He has stated that he will not accept offers; ergo, no acceptance, no contract. No contract, no obligation.
