Sure, who do I have to talk to? Rules must have change because in 2003 when I signed Up I didn't need a reference to have full access

That statement is a creep detector. The person who makes it is a creep, which is a valuable piece of information. Such a person will probably try to jerk you around after you send first and attempt to extort more DVDs from you than originally agreed, or suddenly demand money in addition to an even 1-for-1 DVD trade, or some other form of sadistic game-playing.

The instant someone says that, drop 'em like poison. Walk away. One of the things I have learned well in 26 years of DVD trading is that NO ONE, absolutely *N*O* *O*N*E* in the circumambient universe has anything on video that is completely and totally unique. Typically, a whole lot of folks out there have what you're looking for, no matter how rare...you just have to track 'em down. The instant I encounter game-playing or power trips in someone who proposes a trade, I press the eject button on that clown and never deal with 'em again. Perhaps this explains why I have virtually never been ripped off or scammed. As soon as you start to smell that kind of power trip, it's a sign of bad things to come.

Another classic example of game-playing and power trips is a list full of rare stuff with many items marked NOT FOR TRADE. So what the devil is this stuff on your TRADE LIST for??? It's not a "NOT FOR TRADE" list, is a TRADING list. It makes NO SENSE AT ALL to list al lthe episodes of some rare series on a trading list and then state NOT FOR TRADE. That's a pure sadistic power trip, like offering water to someone wandering in the desert, then pouring the glass of cold clear water out on the sand at the last minute and walking away laughing. That kind of behavior is not only infantile and pathetic, it's deeply creepy and contemptible.

That said, bear in mind that some folks have lives outside video trading. If you hear from someone "I'm all stacked up with trades right now but would like to trade with you in a week or two," or something like that, try e-mailing that person again in a couple of weeks. One of hte basic facts about life is that social networks tend to form power laws, so that 20% of the people have 80% of the wealth in a society, and this applies to video traders. 20% of the video traders tend to have 80% of the rare series out there. This means that those video traders with large collections will typically be very busy, getting lots 'n lots of e-mails every day. It's impossible to keep track of all those e-mails, so if I don't hear from someone who proposed a trade after a couple of weeks, it's all too easy to forget to e-mail that person. This is why it helps to keep e-mailing someone who is willing to trade, but busy. IF the person is reasonable they won't be bugged, they'll be thankful to yo for reminding that you were going to do a trade with 'em.


That guy who says this on the Sports Board has EVERYTHING because he had connections wirth CBS and just like to remind Traders he Has it all-lol I was lucky enough to get CBS eps of One Day at a Time from Him last month.
