Let’s start with this… Mistakes were made. I am 100% the one at fault and I understand that there will be consequences to my actions.

Against the advice of several of you, I acted quickly and recklessly by listing parts of my recent find for auction before taking time to really think things through. As a result, I found myself in the position of having to make the hard decision of either following through with the mistake and breaking up a one of a kind set, or cancelling the auctions after already having bids on them. Both, quite frankly, were shitty options and both were completely avoidable had I not acted so recklessly…

Please believe me when I say that I understand that people can make arguments for which decision was correct (or even least shitty) in the situation at hand. I’m painfully aware that not everyone will agree with the choice I made. This is a consequence that I realize I’m going to have to deal with going forward. All I can do is hope that my actions and interactions in this community over the past four years paired with my actions going forward will repair my reputation. I will accept the consequences either way.

I feel the worst for people like @colter ripton who made decisions on selling other chips in order to pursue trying to buy some of mine. There were probably others as well. Our decisions and mistakes don’t happen in a vacuum and as a result I really screwed him over. I am going to have to live with that knowledge and it is something that I regret terribly.

In closing, I want to say that I believe @Tommy did the right thing by giving me the temporary ban for cancelling the auctions and I’m appreciative of being given a chance to rejoin the community. I understand that opinions of me have changed and I will do my best to repair the mistakes I’ve made. Lessons have definitely been learned.

pretty underwhelming, but here it is…

I always appreciate when someone owns their f-ups and accepts the consequences. Usually those consequences are not as harsh when you own it compared to those who blame others or deflect the fault. I have been on both sides as the person f-ing up and dealing with someone's f-up and find that truth and acceptance leads to the best outcome for all.

I appreciate the sentiment, but if you think that guy is going to be treated the same as everybody else, you’ll probably be disappointed.
As for @Wheeler Assembly talk is cheap, especially on the internet. But on the list of offenses that would make me distrust somebody, this one, as a one time thing, given the circumstances, isn’t exactly a giant red flag. Maybe a mid-sized pink flag? I expect that in time you'll earn back any lost trust.

I can respect that and appreciate you being frank about it
 
Hard lesson, good apology. Sometimes we make mistakes and forgiveness is the way…..

Remember to spread the love should you ever end up on the other side of one of these mistakes in judgement.

Welcome back.
Well said
I've have transactions with you before and I would have no hesitation doing so again.

I think with an honest apology like you did, you earn your way back into most everyone's good graces.
 
I wasn’t affected by this and I don’t think we’ve done business before, but this is not something that would make me any extra wary about doing so in the future.

Rash decisions and some mistakes made, sure, but lessons were learned and those mistakes owned up to. It happens, carry on

^ Exactly this (well-said, BPTD).

I, for one, am glad to see you eventually came to your senses, and were willing to take the flack incurred to correct it.
 
A few days ago, I bid on the "re-priced CDI auction set." Shortly after, as you all know, the auction was canceled. I was the high bid at the time it was canceled. Therefore, the only person entitled to be upset would be me. I was not the slightest bit upset that it had been canceled. The set was worth more and I would have done the same thing due to the lack of bidders. This landed Wheeler Assembly in hot water with the mods for a rule infraction.
But the story doesn't end there. Wheeler Assembly contacted me to complete the transaction the next day. Today, the set arrived in a bomb-proof package via FedEx. Having many deals with Wheeler Assembly over the years, I can say he is a standup guy. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for quality chips. He is an outstanding member of this group and brings a lot to the game. Thank you @WheelerAssembly

I appreciate that. You’ve been more than gracious to me and I’m thrilled that you’ve got such a cool set up. I’ll gladly do business with you going forward, my friend…
 
I saw this and just had to comment that just by admitting a fuck up, owning it and apologizing for it, you're a better man than the vast majority of them I've met. There is nothing that gets more respect from me than admittance.

Thank you. I’ll take a positive out of this mess. I appreciate the sentiment.
