They were too afraid he'd slam them with a negative even though they kept up their end of the bargain...I'd say it would be better to leave no feedback at all.

"Beautiful quartz crystal, packed well! (My sympathies for your mother)"

This is the freakiest feedback of all. I mean, where better to express your condolences than in an Ebay feedback forum?

I think Larry is writing all his own feedback. Either that or he has friends 'jacking up' the price of his auctions and then when they win, they give him nice feedback, and he relists or sells to the underbidder.

There's a guy on eBay trying to sell a PMP like that. Someone kept jacking up the price in dollar incriments daily. When it reached a price I was unwilling to buy at, I stopped budding. Literally minutes after the auction ended, he e-mailed me saying that the other bidder had withdrawn and I could have the mug for $25. PMP... $25. Hmmmmmmmmmmm. NO!

I keep seeing the same mug re-listed.

That, my friend, is called Shell bidding.
It's a big NO NO on Ebay, yet hard to prove.
I've been shown some auctions where this happens and this dude sounds like he's also guilty of that.
Maybe it's all a joke?
This guy just seems so, so.... I dont know.
Anal.

it has been, for decades and still is; frowned upon in all auction formats.
but...
nope.
its not shell.
it is called Shill Bidding.
a shill is a crooked auctioneer's supposed enthusiastic customer. The word comes from shillaber (same meaning) which came into use in the early 20th century.

Thanks for correcting me,lanikai!
I thought it was shell, oh well.

Shill, huh?
Yeah, that sounds alot more devious than shell!

What seems 'odd' is that this one character 'klawrence2' seems to have bought a lot of his stuff and left him positive feedback. But he doesn't seem to leave any feedback for 'klawrence2'.
If our suspicions are true then he should remember to give feedback to himself.
This may be asking too much.....
