I'm not sure what you mean? You think the word "renegging" is offensive? Its actually from the latin meaning to deny. Its not a racial slur.

Re: Sellers renegging once deal made

I was wondering the same thing. From Merriam-Webster:

Main Entry: re·nege
Pronunciation: ri-'neg also -'nAg, -'nig; rE-
Function: verb
Inflected Form(s): re·neged; re·neg·ing
Etymology: Medieval Latin renegare
transitive verb : DENY, RENOUNCE
intransitive verb
1 obsolete : to make a denial
2 : REVOKE
3 : to go back on a promise or commitment
- re·neg·er noun

We use this term all the time when we're playing cards. If you play a card and then take it back, (probably because you realized you could follow suit) you are reneging.

Re: Sellers renegging once deal made

I always thought "reneg" was short for "renegotiate." I guess it means the same thing, right? Or is "reneg" where "renegotiate" came from in the first place?

That's a bunch of crap. I'm tired of seeing this kind of BS philosophy on here.

OP: I do not operate this way. I have little respect for ANYONE who does or believes that it's okay. Hopefully you'll come across some mamas that are wonderful. I suggest looking at the ones I've dealt with! I leave feedback and operate the same way I do on Ebay, yahoo groups dealing IRL.

They are WONDERFUL... and have awesome stuff they sell,too from time to time.

Brush the shady stuff off your shoulder, and move on, because you're bound to find a BETTER deal, and someone smart enough to take your money quicker if they really need it

That happened to me a couple weeks back and I HAD sent the paypal. I had to PM the person asking for them to refund my paypal which was a nerve wracking day or two waiting for her response.

Makes you wonder if people would conduct themselves differently if it wasn't so annonymous. I lurked at a board once where screen names had to be your real name- seems to make people hold themselves to a higher standard.

Ahh see now if they had refunded I'd probably go and leave neutral FB and say "Changed mind after sale completed, refunded my money" just to let pepole know that the seller is wishy washy.

i am in no way meaning to imply what she went through was ok- it is not. It can be quite frustrating when you are ready to sell something and they fall through or you buy something and fall through. I was just saying that online you have more holes and weirdos who use those holes where IRL, you cant get away with that stuff. thats all i was saying.
