minttunator, read the last sentence again. "At the end of the day, I also have difficulty believing that people who cheat you over small matters wouldn't cheat you over larger ones as well."THIS is the scary part of the article. Who knows how much money the Blacksmith could have taken had the item been more expensive. It doesn't matter that it was a small amount. It doesn't even matter if it was one copper; it's still wrong. And it was not just the buyer's fault. The Blacksmith definitely should have at least checked to see if it was BoP or not. If it was an honest mistake, it would not have been difficult to just say "sorry" and ask if he wanted the money back. If he had asked, there is a fair chance that the buyer would have let him keep it.But not only did he not offer to return anything, he BRAGGED about it. I find that particularly sickening. It's greed like this that causes economic crises.
