What's a UHC scammer? Two of my friends are marked as that, one of them saying he didn't deliver a single weapon for spycrabbing or something. :S

[QUOTE=HelenAngel;36903315]You're asking this? Really? When you stand as the #1 REASON why that won't ever happen. What happens the second you think you can get back in to scamming? YOU START SCAMMING AGAIN. Your actions answered your own question. Because of people like you who only want to manipulate others and the system for your own personal benefit and who don't care about who you hurt as long as YOU get what YOU want, programs like this are nearly impossible. It's like the guy who gets out of prison and robs a bank two hours after his release. And everyone then screams about how the parole system is flawed, etc. YOU are the answer to your own question. Clearly some people never change their ways. Of course you'd do anything to get unmarked because you want to continue to steal from people. You only care about yourself and getting what you want. Friendships mean absolutely nothing to you, and clearly you just want to hurt as many people as you can just so you can try to continue doing whatever the heck you want.[/QUOTE] What about me? I scammed once and now I'm banned from all trade servers and even /r/tf2trade. I have been changing my ways and i want to get back into normal trading. I have done mulitple sucessful paypal trades, but its not like that means anything as that is really the only way i can trade. People won't even allow me into their highlander teams for "We don't allow marked scammers". So yes, I think a second chance system would be a lot better to give guys like me a chance to actually prove that I can trade safely now. For example, If you commit a crime, and you go to Steam Rep prison, you can never leave. There are no second chances. Nothing. However if you commit and crime and then go to an actual prison, you get a chance. TL;DR Make a second chance system so people who scammed just once get another chance to do good.

Scamming in TF2 is quite interesting. I mean, the ways of life really are colorful, but [i]stealing pixels on screen?[/i] Where's even point in that? This really puzzles me even more than murders. Those can be at least explained via psychology to some degree. But with this virtual hat business, there's no reason to even [i]care[/i].

Back to the OP shall we? I have traded with aces in the past and sold my purple modest to him. He paid me the full amount after we traded and there wasnt any issue at all. I didnt find any problem with him. I fail to see what problem people have with him other that making fun coz he's famous etc etc. Also there's a difference between trading up and buying a hat for few strange weapons or game copies. You can buy say a energy milkman for 4 and then sell it for 5, but buying it for a few keys or Stranges/craft hats is unethical and essentially scamming since you are deceiving the seller.

[QUOTE=l l;36912783] No one is calling him a scammer so that's really irrelevant, read the OP.[/QUOTE] Nah that's not what I meant. What I am saying is that I know him from that instance and he seemed like a normal guy. And the OP and some others accused him of sharking which I doubt seeing some of his trade histories.

[video] [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cORO4YOGj54#t=04m00s[/url][/video] Some quotes from the video: "Note that this is not scamming. Getting a good deal out someone is not scamming since you're not using like scamming methods. You just... taking advantage of him I guess. But it's not scamming. Please know the difference" "So first of all you have to find your potential target. Let's say you see a guy and he got like 50 hours and a vintage tyrants helm." "And if you're on a trade server. The person most likely knows what he is doing so..." "Never mention the quality of the item you want" "What would you like for it? Would you like some weapons? Stranges? Hats?" "Most people are interestes in stranges" "You have to have a stock of shit stranges like boston basher or like flamethrowers 1 rec stranges or stuff like that" "What's you favorite class?" "Most of my trades go along that path"
I got a question about steamrep. I'm working on a trading bot and I don't feel like making an alt. Gigabyte doesn't use one of his accounts and I was wondering if I could use it for my trade bot without being marked for using an alt of Gigabyte.

I'd rather spend $.49 than use an account of one of the most well-known (well, according to him anyway) scammers.

[QUOTE=EmperorKabuto;36913366]well then you're just an asshat[/QUOTE] Kabuto asked the shopkeeper, "Here's a bright idea. Why not buy one yourself?" The shopkeeper drank some of his ale, looked at Kabuto, and replied, "I'm a cheap man, lad; I'd rather not spend the pence." "Well, then you're just bloody ignorant," said Kabuto in disgust to the shopkeeper.

[QUOTE=Suttles;36918771]after a little someone, i doubt that'd happen anymore[/QUOTE] Sage explained how he wanted to be allowed back into the town. The man looked at him and said, "Perhaps if you return what you have stolen and apologize, they'll let you back in." The old, frail lady next to the man remarked, "I doubt you'd be let back in after what one lad did."
[QUOTE=Desuh;36912363][url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weyGfo-QyDM[/url] he looks like an emo fag[/QUOTE] I never knew what they looked like, but now I think Ace is pretty attractive. Even if that wasn't true, I could think of much better things to call them out on.
[QUOTE=AcesGamer;36781934]I'm not a SteamRep admin though, neither am I a middleman anymore. Also, I'd hardly call what I do "sharking" if it's a ladder trade where only ~10~20% profit is gained per trade. Look for people who are willing to overpay for an item because they need it. You know, supply and demand?
