Well did you stop and think about the effect of your post?
And did you? The only reason you've come across as a "plonker" is because of your thoroughly nasty over-reaction.
Just because you paid more than you needed to, doesn't mean you have the right to pass on your mistake to someone else.
Being a forum sale, there is an expectation that items are offered at a reasonable price to other like-minded members of the community.
By stating that you will now sell them on Ebay, you tacitly acknowledge the difference between forum classifieds and Ebay.
Pauldesjour comes out of this in good standing, on account of the measured way he has dealt with your unwarranted and petulant attack.
Jesus, I wish this thread would just disappear.
'Unwarranted' are you for real?
Look, If I was looking to buy a set of these tyres, I'd be shaking Pauldesjour's hand, but I'm not, I'm trying to sell them.
Checking google shopping these tyres go for between £56 and £84 and on average around the £67 mark. Even on ebay they sell for that figure. So why on earth would I be happy for someone to post a link to a place in Germany that sells them for £40. I mean seriously, I dont understand how you think I'd be anything other than pissed off about it. Anyone who saw the thread would of course buy the tyres from the German site if they were looking to buy some of those tyres. I know I would. My thread was ruined. Unless of course I wanted to then reduce the price even further to undercut the German site and quite frankly I'm not prepared to do that. I'll now either stick them on ebay for £50 or just keep hold of them in vain hope of losing some lard so I dont feel every bump in the road.
£50 was not a bad price to sell them for.
My only crime was to perhaps overstep the mark in my initial response and drop the f-bomb which I've now removed. Other than that, yes I'm still pissed off about him posting his comment, but I do accept it was an error and that he's new to the site.
Just ask yourself how you'd feel if you were selling something and someone posted a link to a place where you could buy exactly the same thing for cheaper. It's fustrating to say the least.
