Offcourse.

It is a buyers job to find the best deal their money can buy.

And second, there is no fixed market value or even a indicator of a avarage. So the only thing a buyer can asume is that the price being offerd is what the seller thinks it's worth. Don't see why i wouldn't be allowed to buy something what i think is worth more. That is the basis of capitalism.

Actually, it's kinda funny, 'cos I was looking (as my alt) for a new plot of land.

And I ported onto this one lot, and it seemed fairly decent, except... I checked who was selling it.

:(

It was you, Dragon Keen - and that kept me from buying it.

aww.. such a shame. Well considering the supposed "bad publicity" I could use an alt to sell land couldnt I? Alts are worthless, why have one... if you cant do it with your main AV, dont do it at all. An alt only means your hiding for some reason... I have no reason to hide from anything... don't think I feel hurt because you didnt buy a 512 from me :)

doesnt seem like others have any problems

Actually, I was hiding more as Phe than as Coyote, but thanks much for your DEEP concern.

Why, if you had such overwhelming concern for the welfare of everyone, maybe you wouldn't be, oh, I dunno, a landsharking swooping shitbag. :)

Didn't say that; I've bought land from people and we've come out quite happy from the bargain, but they weren't landsharks. :)

Leave Wrestling Hulka alone!!

He is a beautiful, misunderstood person and truly just wants to make an honest buck through hard work and lightning-quick reflexes.

And Dragon Keen is a dreamboat and a genius. Leave him alone, too!

Lastly, Sarah Nerd is a stone-cold fox and Teddy Wishbringer makes me wish i was a female furry...*sigh*.

Signed,

We have a saying in Ireland, "if you steal a mans land, your a cunt"


ROFL! on googleing "land swoopers" just to see, I came across this article by Dominik bauer(sp?)

look at them in like vultures

I wonder how much it lags up the system to have these vultures refreshing the land sales page every second?

tons... your game would be SO much faster if we stopped searching the land list, maybe by about 1500% faster, but we dont care.... </sarcasm> Apparently you dont know how the game works.

that pics hot I look sexy in it. We all got a good laugh outta that one... it would have been even funnier however if that guy DID lose his land for L$1 since he was purposely setting it to "see who would land" Ya may not like land swoopers, and good for you... but if you bait one and lose your land dont go crying to mommy and say someone stole your land - because you asked for it. His blog entry he says he "forgot to set a name to sell to" when in reality he didnt forget, he did it on purpose (hence his nice little "you got 0w3d" box) so dont let him seem like the victim - he was trying to have some fun which he, and we, did

Actually what he 'tried' to do was set it for L$1 then relist the price to L$100,000 thinking that real estate agents we as much as a n00b as he was. I get a good laugh when I land on a plot and someone tries to do that.

I know what he was doing! He wasnt trying to rip you off, he was showing you theives up for what you are, sad vultures.

no you dont look sexy in the pic, you look like a nooby in a cheap suit.. 10 a penny mafia wannabe.
