Tired of EBay scams? Think EBay is a haven for criminals? Maybe you ought to surf on over to MormonBid.com.

Pentium III, 1.01Ghz, 376M RAM133mghz, 20M Hard Drive

Those are... unusual specs.

GayBay

Save your money. It sounds like fun, but ebay will hit you with a cease & desist before you even get the confirmation notice from your registrar. They demand to that you assign the doman to them or just not use it.

But you might try gaybay.cx and not list a US address.

Dang, but don't that Souvenir Utah plate look good, though!

1. Take a normal product.
2. Add Jesus
3. Profit!
4. Rinse, repeat.

My understanding is that Utah is the white crime capital of the United States, due to the various scams and frauds perpetrated on Mormons by Mormons. Maybe one should look elsewhere.

ha, I love the categories - "primary aids" covers a lot of ground.

Dragoon's right - Jon Krakauer talked about that phenomenon - especially involving people playing on each other's Mormon faith - in his recent book.

Oh My Joseph Smith...

If that isn't the most amateur-ish looking thing I've seen on the web in quite a while...

You're a mean one, Mister Hatch!

I am so writing that song.

Utah's main trouble as far as swindin' goes seems to be MLM or out-and-out pyramid schemes. I think it's a product of a certain "success ethic", naivette/trust, and the smaller-world effect that comes about given the semi-closed nature of Mormon social networks. I've been approached too many times -- but thankfully, never involved.

Seems like this scamming is robbing Peter to pay Paul, given that Mormons give 10% of their income to the church, off the bat. As scams go, this site is for amusement purposes only.

Can you sell your used Mormon underwear on this?

Somewhere out there, Mayor Curley, there is someone with that fetish.

I was about 5 minutes into this site before I realized that it didn't say moronbid.com. I figured that LDS was learning disabled syndrome or something. "Moronbid is a value-driven auction/community site for those living the LDS lifestyle.."

orange swan, what do you mean, somewhere out there? Mormon underwear has magical powers. You can cast a level 8 Polygamy or level 6 Permanent Grimace with used Mormon underwear.

dahifi, funny, moron is bastardization of mormon. I use them interchangably.
