    He’s claiming no one is profiting, but you have to pay to be in his server for access…

    And if his goal was to help someone buy formula, you don’t need a bot. This is all ridiculous.

    right, covering your costs isn't profiting. is he lying? certainly could be. but the facts being presented aren't smoking guns.

    what do you mean, "don't think it's a thing"? i am in lots of discords, with lots of monitors for lots of things. they don't do anything other than say when something is in stock and OFTEN they are wrong and false positive. they don't buy anything. they don't do anything else. you have to physically go on the page and buy something if you want it. you could use your own monitor like visual ping extension add on or distill.io if you want. it does the same thing. it monitors. it does nothing else other than tell you a webpage has changed. by definition, a bot actually purchases the item automatically. it's important to use words properly here because it matters to what the criticism should be.

    He’s using a discord server made for cards to make money. He uses that money to pay for monitors to alert people when stuff is available. He’s sharing that with degenerates who buy cards to flip for $5 profit.

    I, knowing the hobby, know that people will see a chance to make money via flipping baby formula because of the shortage. People did it with Clorox/other cleaners. And him sharing that on his own private discord for profit is fucked up IMO.

    If his goal, like he states, was to help someone find formula, there’s a lot of other avenues than using the monitor on a discord he makes money on.

    As a dad that has recently struggled to find formula, I find this very annoying

    My son is past 1 year and wife was able to breast feed the entire duration until switching fully to cows milk. But yeah, I could not imagine the unnecessary stress this shit would cause on parents.
    FDA said that more formula was bought in April than the month prior to the recall, so I am sure parents are freaking out and buying up more than the normal supply combined with assholes who are flipping it to make a buck

    My first turns 3 months next week. There was a week in early March that we couldn’t find formula for a good week. Was stressful as hell.

    We’re trying something different this week, due to her spitting up a bit, that can’t be found local :ohdear:

    i have not sold on Ebay in awhile, can you no longer receive payments through Paypal? Is it only paid directly to your bank account now?

    This is correct, which sucks because I always liked using that as just a card fund. Seemed to help me keep my spending in check cause I would just use eBay funds to buy new stuff.

    Man that's terrible but it seems like PSA is trying to rectify it. Hopefully the right thing gets done and this guy is able to recoup most of the value back.

    I figured it happened decently often with how many shipments they handle. Bound to happen even with a good system behind it due to sheer volume.

    After careful review of my expenses, turns out I've spent a fuckton on cards the past 2 months.


    ETA: I should probably try and stop.

    I'm with you, and unfortunately it has been ripping boxes and packs, not buying singles, which means selling to recoup is both extremely tedious and annoying, and also unlikely to recover anywhere near the spend

    Is that in response to players getting paid and then not signing their stickers and cards for months/years? If so, Panini needs to hop on board

    The last Spencer Rattler before making the jump to the gamecocks. Better get that graded.

    Let me know if you pull the DJ Uiagalelei SSP where he's completing a downfield pass.

    Buckeye fans, how does Emeka Egbuka project in your plans this year? Was dumb and decided to buy one of those Wild Card boxes and his auto was in it. Given his recruiting ranking and the amount of WR Ohio St lost, think I should hold on a year before selling to see if he breaks out

    He’ll have a significant role and may end up being a starter. He and Julian Fleming are kinda fighting for the one outside spot. I bought one of his autos on eBay a few weeks ago actually.

    Not a fan of where this(the hobby) is going. Fanatics being well aware of the shit backyard breaks does and still partnering with them is so bad. And just the fact that fanatics already is a pretty meh company
