Turbo Gouging on Ebay ( r.i.p. - gouging much )
« on: August 03, 2010, 09:18:57 AM »
Roy deleted the old "gouging much" thread, so here it is born anew.  It's too bad the old thread is gone, as it was filled with funnies and absolutely insane deals; I guess covering his tracks and hiding his hypocrisy was more important than preserving the laughs.

Thanks to Black & Blue: click here for a cached version of the old thread (click here to download a pdf version).



As previously posted, here's a mystery bundle of gaming goodies for a mere $64,816.32.  It was last up for the paltry sum of $39,000, so you best pull the trigger soon before it jumps into the six figure range.

In a similar vein, here's a new TG-16 for $1880.  If memory serves, it was previously listed for $1200 and then $1600.  Reverse psychology fail.  :lol:

Btw, I'm not a fan of people being able to delete their threads/tracks. There was a time on here were my then-arch nemisis quoted one of my posts, highly edited, and then deleted my original so only his version existed.

I've said some dumb shit in the past. I'm not proud of it, but I'm not going to Ministry of Information it away. I grew, I learned, whatever. People of decent character have no need to censor their own past.

I agree.  That Gouging Much thread had a lot of important information in it, not to mention a ton of entertainment value.  He shouldn't have been able to delete it after so many people had posted in it.

Looks like I missed something here . . .

Can we get the cyber-police to back trace the old thread?
