this reminds me of that brilliantly snarky amazon reviewer... anyone still have the link to him/her?

I'd comment, but I'm not sure what I'm looking at.

busithoth, ebay is an auction site where you can bid on practically anything!

Holy shit that is funny. I want to buy andy46477 a drink.

Excellent post, A++++++++

Looks like someone who just randomly trolled as many Ebayers as he could by leaving them weird feedback.

dhoyt (1) - wonderful transaction, would recommend always Thanks!!!!!
posted by Frasermoo at 11:50 AM on September 17, 2004


how did andy leave feedback for ebay members without winning auctions?
posted by register at 11:50 AM on September 17, 2004


thanks register, I haven't been spoken down to in a long time.

so this guy just spends his time reviewing people for no reason? better than exploiting an open account here, I suppose.

who would find this, besides someone commented on by him, or a friend of his?

on preview, what register said during second post.
I thought you had to have transactions to review as well.

You didn't used to. That policy is just a couple of years old. You'll notice this is all from 1999.

Score: 5 (Insightful)

You do now. All the comments are from 1999, before they made that requirement.

XQUZYPHYR, it's so nerdy to call out a double post with initial caps and a period. You're supposed to do it breezily, without any kind of punctuational ornamentation, as if you could barely be bothered to mention it, and it's such boring pedantry, but someone should probably mention it, might as well be me, I happened to have the cite link right here anyway...

I retract my bid for your QUZ. This is f'in amazing.

Y'know, I'm all about hating on the double posts. But I just paid another visit and even though I've been to this two or three times before, I laughed my ass off again. This stuff is transcendent - andy46477 has virtually created an entirely new genre of comedy - and Matt should undoubtedly create a special exception for it on the posting guidelines page.

I liked reading these. For the first couple pages, I did not notice that each comment is a response to the comentee's username. They are kind of delightful in that (non)context, just as an endless variety of absurd moments of reaching out to strangers. Alongside the usernames they take on the tenor of heckling, which gets old pretty quick.

Despite myself I must concede that those are funny. Very funny.

You read this and then know how much BS the Feedback Score is on eBay. A high score guarantees . . . . perhaps that someone's friends like them, that someone can open multiple eBay accounts and practice some self love . . . ? "Hey, this seller has all favorables, where is my laptop?"

posted by lee at 8:37 PM on September 17, 2004


I always thought the whole "A++++++++++++" business was pretty silly. What's the point? It's not like the feedback is sorted by ASCII values...

Except you can no longer do this. Post 1999, you can't leave feedback for someone unless you bought something from them or sold something to them and it's only one FB per auction.

Hey adamms222, the snarky amazon reviewer is one Henry Raddick.

dhoyt, I thought that was fairly effective bait myself.

If anyone is still reading, here are some hijinx from Sam McPheeters (of the bands Born Against, Men's Recovery Project, Wrangler Brutes).

I blogged about this a year and a half ago!
I know, I know, I didn't notice until just now myself. I thought it was someone new. Still. Why aren't you reading my blog, you ungrateful bastards?
