i dont mind the posting so much, its the back-door offers that result in the items being pulled off ebay that is frustrating.

Sorry Bryce, but I think you are wrong on this one! You think that Randys posts add to the back door offers? Generally, I have seen most of the items he posts, except for items from catagories I don't watch, and then I find the posts educational. If an exceptional item pops up that you are interested in, you have the same back door as the other ebay members, so help yourself!
With the millions of people watching ebay, I can't believe that even one of Randys posts ever added to the price, or set up a back door Johnny that wasn't already there.
I mostly watch ebay to keep up with public trends and pricing, and occasionaly I bid on something, but I am there mostly for the daily schooling.
I for one, am very happy that Randy brings an occasional rare item to the front, in that we may all enjoy watching the ensuing bidding. I even like to add an item every now and then myself!
I seriously doubt that you have ever missed out on anything because of one of Randys posts! Please keep up with the "town Crier" and I will do my best to help out at times.

I hope you take my criticism for what it is--just an opinion-- and don't take offense from it.

Yes, I think his posts add to backdoor offers. It's not limited to this though, posting auctions after they've ended as well. Remember what happened when someone posted that paragon lollipop sign that showed up on eBay? Yeah, lots and lots of backdoor offers that eventually came at the cost of the original buyer.

And no offense taken at all... I can appreciate the value this thread adds for some people. But for me, it's done more harm than good... but it sounds like I'm in the minority. So my little rant is over, lol

Me, I like the town crier thread and look forward to seeing it bumped with cool stuff. And, if your paying attention to the internet everything doesn't make the thread. cool

I'm with Bryce on this one. Posting something a week or two after it has ended as an FYI is fine. The buyer should safely have his item and thus eliminate concerns about someone trying to back door and offer more than it "sold" for.

In my opinion, if you aren't interested in an item - let those who are seek it out and have fun trying to buy it. As Bryce mentioned, I doubt Randy is posting items that he is trying to buy before they end smile. It's not getting out in the truck and driving the back roads, but it is still fun to find a listing on ebay that you hope may be falling through the cracks so to speak. Not a big deal and everyone sees it differently, but the thrill is in the hunt and this is kind of like going to a pheasant farm for the lazy hunters - LOL.

Making "back-door deals" (that sounds dirty, heh) after an auction has ended on eBay is low in my opinion. However, up until a deal is consummated (heh) by the gavel hitting the pedestal, it is all open market principles. Meaning, if, through an alternate venue, the seller finds someone willing to pay more, then so be it. The onus is on the seller to determine in which market (either an anonymous auction site or message forum) he/she would like to participate. I have no issue with sellers ending auctions early or sellers on this website opting to ignore offers from fellow members and opting for an auction site. Again, the only time I have an issue is when there is a meeting of minds and we have one of the parties reneg.
