Your apologies are commendable but you still have not addressed the underlying problem; dishonesty. Both "incidents" are cases of dishonesty and deception; the circumstances under which they occurred are irrelevant. I understand that selling something at a loss can be painful but think about the buyer; who's hard earned money you could have been "stealing". At the end of the day, your reputation will mean more than a few bucks; you can always make up the money but you can't make up for your reputation... Instead of this being a "don't do it again" lesson, try to make it a "I'll try to be an honest person" lesson.I try to learn from my mistakes. I'm not trying to deceive anyone and make a quick buck out of them; I simply wanted to get what I thought was a fair price for the laser. I thought that ben's numbers would remain accurate since I only lightly used the laser since I bought it from him. Again, I'm deeply sorry for the trouble I have caused here, and I strive to fix the problems I have caused. I will change my selling practices on ebay, since I have learned that falsified bidding is not needed to get a fair price for my items.
I understand I was wrong for trying to cover up my deceptive ebay practices but I didn't want to cause trouble. I now know that I have caused more trouble this way and am sorry for that as well.
From the 1000's of people I've met, I only know about 5 who have truly let their morals guide them without compromise. Its always easy to do the bad things, but can be very hard to do the right thing sometimes. Most people fail because they dont care, and just think of themselves only. Its very sad.does anyone have an freaking morals?
