Thanks, Bob. We'll wait for following posts where you lower the price.

I'm curious. I was wondering if you have been rude for a long time, or if this was a recent decision that you have made?

Let me step in here...John's post is a joke. It's reference to another series of posts on the Genii forum.

There was another person selling books on this forum who didn't get a response to his offer, so he returned and lowered the prices on the books two or three times until someone did buy. I guess he wanted to move the books fast.

So John's joke fell flat because you hadn't seen the earlier posts; he wasn't trying to be rude, from my perspective.

Bob is that other guy.

I haven't bought anything from him yet, but it looks like he has some good deals - if he posts somthing I'm intereste in at a good price, I'd probably buy it.

I don't think John was being intentionally rude, but was teasing Bob a bit. Remember folks: sometimes it's hard to get the tone of a post from just the words. Since we're not getting the tone of voice, body language, etc, we can easily misinterpret the meaning. I think John only meant that as a harmless joke.

Thanks guys,

What you are telling me is that he is not rude, he is uninformed about etiquette. You can draw your own implications from that.

I am wondering if the books are brand new? Signed by the author? Why are they so expensive? That does seem like a heck-of-a lot to pay for those books. I got Kenners book new for $40

They are NOT expensive: expensive is $50 to $75 and up. $400 for Card Craft is expensive. I thought Bob's prices were perfectly reasonable for the Fechter's books considering that both are out of print and difficult to find.
As for Chris Kenner's "Totally Out of Control," well, that is IN print and available directly from the publisher (that would be moi) for $40 postage free.

Thank you, jeff. Thank you, Jim. It WAS a joke. Actually Bob, I am quite well informed about etiquette. And if YOU were, you would have said "Thank you", to me, for trying to sell your Faucett Ross book for you, in another thread. I am also quite well informed about the English language, and Jeff and Jim wouldn't be drawing "implications", they would draw "inferences".
