I can't believe I just sat here reading a whole thread on being nice!

I know, I know! That's not very nice!

Quoted from jlm33:

I suppose it's not always easy to say something is overpriced (or completely inaccurate) in a nice way.
But it can always be done in a civil way.
And there is no need to repeat it multiple times (far more useful to see 10 different pinsiders posting something is overpriced, than the same pinsider posting 10 times the same comment...).

This is actually not directed just to you...Just on the same subject...

I'm another person that doesn't really understand the price policing and buy into the reasons, maybe I'm looking at it all wrong. Are these same people that do this, also giving people more money for their under priced games? I wonder...If they are buying a game a few hundred under priced if they say "oh wait, I can't do that. I have to give you more." Or are they in the threads of under priced games telling the op they are too low on price? I haven't seen any yet, but I'm still kind of new to this and watching prices.

I see, in a way where both sides are on this but..Just seems like an excuse to me in a lot of these threads.

I'm not much for rules. And I'm not saying it should be in the "Be nice" rule. But I really can't understand some of the posts that go on some of the for sale threads. I'm hardly ever even serious about anything. Who cares if someone wants to overpay for a game, or if someone asks too much. These are toys. And obviously anyone buying one is an adult and should check into something before throwing down that type of cash. I've way over paid on a few things. That's my fault! And a couple of them I would have over paid anyhow because I wanted them! I don't need people to watch out how I spend my play money when buying a toy.
