So lemme get this straight...You found a fish that I wanted and went out of your way to ask me if I REALLY wanted him. You posted in this thread and you sent me a PM. THEN you PROXY bid the fish so that I couldn't out bid you without spending over the fish is worth WITHOUT waiting for my reply. So I get home from a fun night out to see your messages and then to see that you
already bid on the fish.....So you PMed a mod because I raised the bid?
I guess I should have just said "oh well" Cajun wants my fish now so i'll just let her have it and not bid against her?
SERIOUSLY?? You are really gonna go there?
I do not have a good memory, this is why I proxy on any bidding site - AB, Ebay, doesn't matter. As you stated in a pm, it is a bidding site. Had I come across him on AB (which I would have, as I check it every day for my breeding stock) I would have still done the same thing. I asked you about him first, then decided on what I had just said - had I come across him myself I would bid anyway. So there was no point for me to wait upon coming to that decision.
You are right! Like I said before it's a bidding site. I cant stop you from bidding against me and you can't stop me from bidding against you. Why you get upset over me raising the bid is beyond me after what you just did to me. No one told you to proxy bid the fish for $50. You did that to yourself! What ticked me off is that you ASKED me and THEN bid on the fish.That's what's rude. BUT like I said before we all have our own moral standards we live by. Some have lower standards than others. To each there own.
Congratulations on you new $100 fish! I am sure we made the breeder very happy indeed. I hope you enjoyed overpaying for him, because you and I both know he ain't worth the money you are gonna pay to ship him over here.
I'll consider us even now.
