Having to remind vendors (especially commercial vendors) that they've 'forgotten' to leave you any feedback on eBay. It's a little thing I know but feedback scores are almost equivalent to your reputation on eBay. It also pisses me off when vendors wait until you award feedback before they'll leave any themselves. I've paid, my part of the transaction is over, tell everyone how wonderful I am you miserable bastard


giving feedback to buyers on ebay is meaningless as you are only allowed to leave positive ido see however that it might seem rude
Feedback about a buyer is pointless these days. The idea dated back to the times when online peer to peer selling could be a bit like the 'wild west' and feedback about someone who tried to scam you was important for others to see. Now that's all tied up by seller (and buyer) protection through Paypal. Only feedback about the seller is now relevant. Professional sellers just leave automated positive feedback for buyers as soon as an item is paid...

I momentarily forgot that and my excuse is that the OP hasn't been around to remind us just how wrong and just how pissed you can be at the same time. Pass the :angry-soapbox:

Sitting down with nice glass of wine and critically listening to the music rather than enjoying it.
For example, i sat down and put on Ziggy this afternoon and wound myself up into a tight stress ball thinking nothing sounded right and i needed to fiddle with the arm/cart.
Whereas an hour later i put on the same record whilst pottering around the house doing chores and it sounded magnificent!
I genuinely think "state of mind" plays a enormous role in enjoying the hobby. i.e don't take it too seriously.
TT- Thorens TD160B MKII with SME 3009, SL1210 and PL-71. Amps-NVA P50sa/A40's & Phono 1.
DAC-Bushmaster MKII. CDP- Sony X555ES. Speakers-B&W 705 with LS1.

A person (or two) on AoS who speak like 'a Mobile Choons Gizmo'. Smart word smiths but not smart enough to choose something to listen with.
