Lurks in the shadows,
I feel that a private message would have been more appropriate then an "attack" in public, "chance to turn a profit"?? If you know the prices, then you know that after I pay to get a skeleton plus shipping, then send a skelton out, I am not making more then a dollar or two, is this turning a major profit? You say "I'm not trying to undercut you" Obviously if you can sell them for less, then you will ultimately make the sales, there is no reason to post this in anything but a private message unless you were trying to undercut and bring attention to your product.
I cannot afford to buy bulk, nor can I store them, trust me when I tell you that I don't need to sell Skeletons to make a buck, I thought I was actually helping a few people, this is a hobby for me, not a business. No need to put my character at question in public.
I may be new to the Halloween forums, but I am in no way new to the web, chat communities or the ethicate of posting.
Is it common to Hijack posts? If your prices are better why not just make your own post with your prices instead of jumping in and making it look like I am trying to rip people off and scolding me like I am a child? People would have obviously bought from you. I can't really see any other reason for your post.
I am trying to understand the purpose of your post when you say "I'm not trying to undercut you, just letting you know that your best chance to turn a profit isn't here. eBay and the like are your best bet." Were you trying to educate me, protect everyone else or show that you too sell skeletons at a better price?
"I fully understand that people will research prices, but the beauty of this is that people have the right to choose where and when they make a purchase.
So to sum it up, you have been very sucessful in letting people know what your prices are.
