Yea you are putting "As-is", "defective" or whatever. But you know for a fact that any buyer is assuming he can buff them or somehow get some of them to work. And you know there is no possible way anyone can get them to work.

I mean really, be the bigger person here. How would you feel if you were buying something like this hoping to get something out of it and then you find out there was no chance of getting anything working out of it?

Do unto others and all that , you know. :)
+1. seems to me that fraud/scamming is the cool new thing these days, i miss honesty in transactions
I don't think fraud/scamming is the cool new things these days but aparently judging other people what they do off this site must be rising in popularity. That is just the feeling I am getting right now. No hard feelings guys. I am not peddaling any of the broken items here. I wouldn't do that here because I very much like this forum. I see where both of you are coming from and I understand your conviction to the subject.
I don't have any pics of the carnage yet but will take some and post them later...I even came across the first disc i warped on the machine. Sadly it was the Best of the Eagles.

I wasnt just referring to you, but to people in general. lots of ebay and craigslist "sellers" and buyers nowadays are more interested in ripping other people off than actually selling legitimate goods, and similar things have happened on this forum recently.

Tie string around them and hang them all over your room, it would look awesome. And for extra fun mount some lasers around the room and point them at the cd. And for even more fun put a cat in the room and turn on all the lasers. :P
