Aug 17th 2009 12:39AM An excellent article, one I'm sure your mother would greatly approve. And my most heartfelt condolences for your loss - I know the pain of losing a loved one cannot be assuaged by words alone, but take solace in the support shown by all the readers here.

The ethics of a botched deal, redux {WoW}

Dec 16th 2008 5:54AM I'd love to write out a thorough and witful reply to this highly volatile issue, but I'm tired and stressed out after work and can only come up with a short, concise post:-

1) Blacksmith was NOT ethically wrong in accepting tip for the "botched" deal, but he could be decent about it and refuse to accept it.

2) Customer was NOT wrong in not noticing the item was BoP while doing his research, but he should have done BETTER research. Blacksmith was NOT wrong in not noticing the item was BoP, but he should have been more alert since he's doing something with someone else's mats. Even though it's through another's request.

3) Blacksmith and Customer has apparently agreed that the deal was "botched", so meh, maybe next time. No mention of "Gimme back my money" or "You ***hole cheat me ohnoez"... so it can safely be assumed that Customer foregoes the right to the mace (and the proceeds thereof) and the Blacksmith is NOT wrong in keeping the profit from vendoring it. BUT - Blacksmith could've been a decent player and just give the money to the Customer. It was his original mats anyways.

4) Blacksmith was WRONG to gloat about the issue. I say again - WRONG to GLOAT. Just say - "There was this deal I'm in and the other guy got the short end of it. He graciously tipped me and gave me the proceeds from vendoring the item, too." - and see where the discussion leads to.

First part of the story - both parties shoulder the responsibility of the "botched" deal well, and apparently there was no bitter words exchanged. So that's no big deal for the both of them.

Second part of the story - Blacksmith gloated. The shameless bugger has the guts to demean (through his words) the Customer afterwards. He deserved more than the /gkicked IMHO.

p/s:- Apparently I'm not as tired or stressed out as I think. Sorry! (>_
