Let's look at the facts here.
Curious Goods (Don) made the decision to leave CCL and concentrate his efforts elsewhere.
On the way out the door he slashed his prices to ridiculously low levels.
The Sale was a huge success, (this part is speculation) probably bigger than he expected. No wonder, I'm sure Buyers had a field day. Nothing wrong with that, who doesn't like a good bargain?
He stated in his sale announcement that shipping would be slow. Understandable and most people didn't care and if they did then they voluntarily paid to get faster (Priority) shipping.
Buyers on this Forum started to complain about items missing from their orders, usually the high dollar comics. Promised refunds were not received, entire orders not shipped.
These are all facts, easily verified.
Lee doesn't need me to defend him but what has he said?
Don is a thief. When you pay for goods or services and the product is not delivered and the Seller keeps the money - that is theft.
Don is a liar. If you promise someone that they will receive a product or a refund and you do not do so - that's a lie.
Now, you may actually be on to something here:
one of my orders I placed was 145 books and it was only $28 with free shipping on top of it….not worth the time to fill that order in my opinion, and I bet he even lost money on shipping huge heavy boxes. I realize he was the one who made the decision to have the sale
A box of comics that big has got to weigh about 20 pounds. Media Mail for that is around $11 and Standard Post is just under $35. You add in the cost of the box, packing tape, packing materials, CCL and PayPal fees, labor - you are not getting much profit from that transaction.
But guess what? Did Don voluntarily put himself in that position or was he strong armed or coerced into doing it? You decide.
We've all heard of Buyer's Remorse, this could be an example of Seller's Remorse.
