I'm pretty sure somebody has been screwed or feel like they've been screwed
through an online auction/Sale before, but if it were me in that position, I
don't give a crap if you were the most tempermental guy or the nicest for
that matter, I just want my crap and i want it when it was promised.... if you
wanna be tempermental then screw you, I would tell all my friends and everyone
i can about the BS'er that you are, so i think that Core DID do the right
thing, and he should post up this back up on his site AND everytime you nitce
he gets a new handl give him a neutral saying what a bad seller he is.

AND remember the customer should always be satisfied, so not only have you
proven him to be a bad business man but also some one who needs work on his

keep in mind I do not know this guy so this is what i would do if I were in
Core's postion...
