On a completely unrelated topic, I’m a fan of requiring IQ tests as part of the EF user registration process.

Seriously, you should be happy that he doesn't report you as you are randomly accusing someone in public with no reason.

The ad shows 10 out 10 available and the iPod on the pictures is most likely one of the 10. and even if not, the photos show so little detail that it really doesn't matter.

Re: Is this offer for ipod real or scam?

Oh, jeez, Omt...drop that. It's just dumb...the dude is selling 10, and can't be arsed to take 10 pictures of probably identically-looking old iPods each worth...wait for it...40 francs! He claims they are in perfect shape, so...what's there to see? If you've seen one, you've seen them all.

If you BUY one, and it has any kind of damage that is NOT in the picture, then you can file a claim. I just see a molehill.

If he takes pics from everything else that he offers then he can take pics of every ipod that he wants to sell. I want to see what I am buying

Just grow up, that would help you, and it might help us get less of your rubbish.

Re: Is this offer for ipod real or scam?

Some trolls are amusing so we tolerate them; it's fun to keep them around.

Omtatsat, you're not one of them. You're a miserable, whiney, boring troll, adding nothing useful or entertaining to the lives of EF members. If you can't or won't help others with your posts, refrain from pointless, abusive language (requiring multiple moderator actions to sort out), or at least post intelligently, then just STFU. Otherwise I'll be only too glad to help you out with a month off EF.

Seriously, get a hobby. Take up trainspotting, or knitting, or something, but for crying out loud, give us all a break.

Re: Is this offer for ipod real or scam?

I have an iPod Touch you can have for free. Some are now 10 years old so they would definitely be sold for 40chf. There's almost no demand for such devices.

I respect your moderation and enjoy your posts.

I've no doubt I'm a lone voice on this one; your post here is out of order.

Being abusive while judging another as abusive is beneath you.

There's no denying that Omtatsat has a bit entertainment value, at the very least. Otherwise we wouldn't respond to such nonsense..

Thanks for expressing your thoughts (and for the way in which you've expressed them).

I see why you think my post was abusive. I think it needs to be considered in the context of omtatsat's posts, including those deleted by moderators for being abusive (of course, regrettably, you can't see those). Standard requests and warnings have had no effect. My post above is a last-ditch attempt to evoke a positive response. I'm sorry it's a little abusive (relatively, not very!), but I hope it grabbed the attention it was intended to and has the desired effect. If so, that's a win for everybody.
