    From Ben’s feedback page:


    OK, gotta get the backstory here…

    d-link router? i thought you said everything worked well…

  6. Ben Popken says:

    @rekoil: This place was selling these hard-to-find shoes I really wanted then they canceled the auction and refunded my money and wouldn’t tell me anything. I kept asking them for an explanation and they wouldn’t respond. So I gave ’em a negative rating for totally ignoring me and they responded in kind.

    @acambras: Sure, it is, but it’s still less evil than check fraud.

    Hmmmm. I see that Ben was known on eBay until very recently as, “allianceplastique”. Checking Google… as, yes… he has a flickr account. Two photos, one animated GIF.

    What? The photos from March 27th, 2006 were taken private? Let’s see… Google Cache…. ah. Ben! Is that you?

  10. Ben Popken says:

    @mantari: Nope.

  11. NeoteriX says:

    Here I thought ya’ll would be ebaying Consumerist T shirts, jerseys, and baseball caps. Poo.

  12. Jon Parker says:

    @rekoil: Hi rekoil!

  13. Nemesis_Enforcer says:

    @mantari: If I could only find a woman like that…Used, easy, reliable, fun!!!

  14. thereviewer says:

    Why are you selling Wii Sports, as anyone who owns a wii has wii sports. The only people that would need wii sports are people who own wii’s.

  15. scoobydoo says:

    @thereviewer: Some people may have seen their original wii sports disc get scratched beyond belief by their kids.

    Just sayin!

  16. PDQ says:

    “Next week, we’ll be selling……a PA…”

    PA = ??? Personal Assistant??? Prince Albert???

    I don’t know what kind of operation you’re running, but I think I’ll be going now (backing quickly towards the door)

  17. segfault, registered cat offender says:


    PA = Public Address system or loudspeaker

  18. ElizabethD says:

    Does this mean Consumerist will now publish free display ads with links to commenters’ eBay auctions? Count me in!

  19. coolyfooly88 says:

    Who, pray tell, are you trying to pass Wii Sports off on?

  20. RandomHookup says:

    And if you do a “Buy It Now” transaction, Ben will throw in a photo of him using the item and a ‘special’ message just for your ladies.

  21. RandomHookup says:

    Correction: just for *you* ladies.

  22. AcilletaM says:

    Wait, I thought I typed in Consumerist, not Craiglist.

    And you didn’t Digg this? You need to step it up in the marketing/promotions department.

  23. DuncanC says:

    I wonder what a consumer advocate would think about an employee using his employer’s valuable web real estate to promote his own ebay store. Or will Nick Denton receive a percentage of your profits?

    The best part is that Gawker Media paid you for your own advertising!

  24. Hallik09 says:

    And what is wrong with HYIPs, may I ask :)

  25. Kat says:

    Do tell us the story behind your negative…

  26. EtherealStrife says:

    “Ddn’t ship item and refunded money. No response to repeated emails.”

    For that you left a negative? No wonder the guy left you one in return. Thats gray-worthy in my book.

    For those wondering, the item was “NEW ADIDAS SAMBA 85 SZ 9.5 INDOOR SOCCER 82 SUPER STAR”
