Or is he just a dumb ****ing moron ? :confused:

It's fine to take a stand Pops, but why go the eBay route and then say they'll just be returned to the store if they don't sell ? ? ? That's really smart, let's put them on eBay where we can pay listing and potential final value fees when they can just be returned much more easily for a full refund. :rolleyes:

Sounds like BS, perhaps like someone trying to pad their auction with an interesting sob story.

Today I read that Golden Palace.com bought the auction for over 5 Grand on the condition that the money go to charity . . . so the dad said a new heater would be bought for their church.

DS doesnt seem worth to be waiting in line for.Give it a few months and they'll be collecting dust in places.

I personally would have just returned everything to the store.I think the dad got greedy and was hoping a good story was going to rake in more cash for him.

I saw about this on CNN and I instantly thought that it was just a gimmick so that he could get top dollar for them. Ridiculous.

Anything for the proverbial fifteen minutes and/or the almighty dollar. (200th post! Take that, Mysterio!)
