I really can't tell FPB how much I truly apologize. My actions were very arrogant, and irresponsible. I would like to apologize to everyone I have hurt, as I wasn't trying to deceive anybody. Simply I was looking for another buyer, so that two people could afford one collection of pens. But what I failed to consider, is I can only sell pens after I've bought them.
I very much take full responsibility for my stupidity, and I sincerely apologize to the fullest degree for my actions.
Arrogance and irresponsibility really are not relevant. Sort of like an attempted murderer apologizing for being thoughtless. Perhaps you can find better words for what is wrong with you.
Also, you appear to be a liar or to have a mental defect. The issue of "selling" things you don't own had clearly been raised for you before. This is not new. Based (yet again, in this latest run) on your posts to George, we know you are a liar. Lying, by definition, indeed is deception, so clearly you *were* trying to deceive.
So, explain to us what sort of person fails to consider he cannot sell what he does not own?
Of note, you have "apologized" for this sort of thing before.
Who you thought might afford a collection matters not at all. It wasn't your collection.
Your posts on Gun, Precious Metal, Car, and Music Equipment sites are similarly interesting.
So, what then is your defect?
I was being very inconsiderate, and yet again not knowing the pen community is as small as it is.
Also this is not apologizing, this is a huge apology, in which I will be sure to step back from the hobby and rethink my actions.
I understand how it would be fraud with me taking the money and running, but I wasn't going to do that. I was simply looking for someone to buy into the collection with me.
Not only is this the second and last time I will ever sell without buying, but its the last time I communicate with people who have manipulated in the past and continue to manipulate me. The people who managed to manipulate me into trying to sell them pens, were people which in fact knew prior to messaging me that there friend had pens which they photographed for me the day before. If that is deceptioin, I don't know what is.
I would like to say again, I really have overstepped the boundaries and apologize.
