Have you ever been blocked by an E seller here?


I was browsing through the ads over the weekend and on an item I clicked on, I saw the words "blocked". I have never ever done business with this person before. I did however call him out via private message that he was being very misleading in his ad for something he was selling. He gave me a snarky reply and that was the end of it, I didn’t press further. What do you make of it? I am quite annoyed as I have an impeccable record in the classifieds.

Wow, such pettiness...
It seems to be a sign of the times, unfortunately.
If only we could instill a higher moral standard to guide the 'Better Angels of our Nature'.

Just curious Bob.
On what side of the tracks does your statement of pettiness fall?
Happened twice to me in the exact same circumstances even though I was polite amd respectful in the private inmail.

Audiogon support staff quickly remedied it after some basic Q&A and investigation.

+1 on also never thinking about them as a potential for my future buying.

I will say also that if a dealer or distributor has these abilities on this forum at all, that is the base of the issue to begin with.  Audiogon used to be a hobbyist forum....boy do I miss those days!

Refusing to sell internationally as most sellers do on Audiogon is not the same as blocking but the result is the same.  I have had some successful purchases from the USA but many more lost purchases because sellers only sell to the USA or Canada. Perhaps someone can explain why as payments are secure via Paypal and the only extra effort required by the seller as I understand it is to fill in a brief customs declaration form.
