Morons of the week

The classic by Rob:

"Jo aka Big" sold a single frostweave cloth at the price of a stack. They just can't learn:

Selling below vendor cost is still a huge business to the morons (by moowow):

Selling seasonal vendor items to morons is a cheap way to get rich (by Devin):

Mike's glyph pricing was found inappropriate by someone.
Than Cozmo got the same letter.
Finally Bhubluscious of Ysera - US sent me the same letter. The same moron submitted three times, that's a crit or something!

Alectris from Khadgar was politely reminded that her business is immoral:

I am sorry but I gotta say I love all the threats to report for scam and fraud.

My mind has been sufficiently stabbed by the last one.

Bugger, wish I'd screenshot it. Seems it dowsn't always pay to jump right down some M&S's throat. Got a msg from a guy calling me a douchebag for selling a L43 cloth item for 185g. Wrote him back asking what he thought was a fair price for it. He responded with an offer to buy it for 75g, which I proptly COD'd. I had picked it up for 5g three days earlier. Seems the carrot-on-a-stick still has value.

If someone created 5 alts on your server just to scam a quick 1k gold out of you, would you post the pics to "Morons of the week?"

@Samus: of course. This site is about goblinism. I'm far from being perfect, and often learn from my own mistakes. If someone can "scam" me, I would congratulate the smart guy.

So if some one buys the plain letter that I put on the AH for 5000 gold I am a scammer? PLEASE report me!!!! If you are dumb enough to buy it, your problem pal.

The one saying the Goblin translator spit out M&S is priceless.
