Re: greenie mistake is it ethical?

Well, IN your case you said you were suppose to sell your Dhow and Forgot to put the Deed in the trade. BUt you said you would sell it wich means you had to give it if he gave you the money for it. But for your officer wich claimed 2 sloop. Well they were already Unclaimed so anyone could have taken them. So his thing is legal. Unlike you which had to sell your dhow. You did the good thing to give it ^_^


If i get it right then its not really the greenies fault. Its more of yours because you didnt put the deed in the trade before accepting

Re: greenie mistake is it ethical?

Your post confuses me.

From what I understood, you forgot to put the deed in the trade interface, and the person was quick to click accept, and now you are asking why you should give him the longship.


Please tell me if I am right so I can go on ranting about how wrong this is, to even ask if you have to give him the ship.

Re: greenie mistake is it ethical?

Still you should have put the longship in before clicking acept since you had already agreed to the terms before...

Re: greenie mistake is it ethical?

 
kinda. but he i send him trade he aceet he puttet 60k and accepted in uder 3 sec. in 3 sec i place my mouse on the booty tab



So he was just quick to accept, a simple mistake. That doesn't mean you cash in on it and don't give him the boat. That is called being greedy.

Re: greenie mistake is it ethical?

Two wrongs don't make a right.

Think of how betrayed you felt, do you wish that upon another innocent person?

but i have to give him the sloop first.


Sorry, but I've got to point out a few things.
#1. Why didn't you just trade a sloop for 100k in the trade request?
#2. I would be suspicious, I don't know about you, but didn't you ever think "Hey, he could just use the 100k to buy himself a 20k sloop, and still have 80k left over.
#3. (going along the lines of #1. So, your saying that you have to give him the sloop first, accept the trade request, then do another trade request for 100k? Thats a bit odd?

Edit:
Also, I'd like to comment on your first problem.
If he traded the 60k first, and accidentally clicked check, then you accepted the trade, you should give him the longship. Yes, he did cuss ye out, but sometimes you've just got to be the better peron and just give the person what they want. Also, you can make them think how immature they were by cussing ye out by saying (sarcasm intended), "Wow, your mature. :)".

Re: greenie mistake is it ethical?

1. No there is no amendment that says if one person gets scammed, then you have the right to scam others.

2. You cannot delete a thread that has replies.

3. What you would have been banned for is scamming, which is what you were contemplating doing. You saw he had accept clicked, and you clicked it, without giving him what you were trading for.

4. Thank you for putting you crew's name in your sig so I can look you up and join Reep in planking you.

Thanks Joly, but I already checked that... there's no such crew on Viridian.

Re: greenie mistake is it ethical?

You wanted to scam a greenie, got mad the OM said you'd be banned if you did it, whined on the forums, then you're surprised when people disagree with you?

And your crew doesn't exist on Viridian, are you sure you're in the right forums?

If you want this to go away, you can ask an OM to lock it, PM one of them.

Re: greenie mistake is it ethical?

To answer your question:

No, it is not ethical to cheat someone. Not even if they were too hasty to push a button, and not even if you have been cheated by someone else. It just isn't.

Yes, because you made it sound like the only reason you gave the guy his ship was because you feared the wrath of the ocean master.

Re: greenie mistake is it ethical?

ROMS is dead right now and I'm bored, so I'll troll.
 
and whats the definition of a scam?

Scam is when someone makes a mstake by giving you money without you giving them a ship even though you said you would, and you saying you won't give them a ship.

You scammed them, even though they pushed the buh-an, when you didn't immediately offer to trade again or /pay them the poe back.

There's your answer. Now stop being an immature [mule] and we'll stop feeding your ego. Too bad you weren't banned for your attitude and for having to have the OM get in the middle, bub.
----------------------------------------
It's all... part of the Plan.

Let's put a smile on that face!

Everything that you have said tells me that your a greenie, If someone does something bad to you, (touching you counts as bad :( ) you are annoyed, angry, you do not retaliate by going and doing the same thing to someone else, how does that make you any different to them?
If someone asks you to trade with them, but does not offer their part of the deal, do not trade with them, otherwise why would they give it to you after?
But if you are in a trade with someone, give them your part of the deal, even if they make a silly mistake, he was right to swear at you, it would be the same as going into a rl shop, going to the counter to pay for something, then not and walking out the store, he would swear and curse at you. In rl it is illegal, why should it be any different on here?
I personally do give my bestest buds things and not expect something in return immediately, because i have known them for a long time, and therefore know they will give it back. There is a difference between complete trust, and liking someone, even if something seems as an amazing deal, dont be a fool and not get your part of the deal

Your conscience should have already covered that. If you have one.
You want us to congratulate you on resisting the temptation to scam? Might have been wiser to keep it to yourself and feel lucky that you didn't succumb.

 
Everything that you have said tells me that your a greenie you are immature


Fixed.

Green does not equal immature.
