Very subtle haha.
@BarrieJ3 makes a good point, and I generally try to refrain from posting my opinion about anything on PCF.
@DMack I think you, too, can take solace in the fact that I spend a lot of time looking at my computer and phone for chips. This means that I waste my precious time alive looking at pages and pages of worthless garbage, hunting for gems. I do this because it is the only way for me to afford this hobby.
Like most of the vocal PCFers, I imagine you spend your days in your corner office, earning big bucks, before going home and spending some quality time with your wife (and kids, if you have them). You are making lasting memories and living your best life.
Meanwhile, I'm a lowly college student and poker chip addict who must scour the web to find chips as I cannot rely on a good paying job. Yes, sometimes I sell the chips I find for more than I paid. Because I desire good chips I am willing to sacrifice my enjoyment in other areas of life. As with anything, there is an opportunity cost.
I'm too poor to be an equestrian, so I can't speak to how satisfying it is to ride the high horse of online forum morality, but it must provide many users here with some kind of endorphin rush.
I won't have any more posts about this, and this was likely the wrong thread to post this, but I'll just say that I seem to have shown up on the PCF Appreciation Thread a few times now, and there are people here I consider to be good friends with (as good of friends as you can be with someone you'll likely never meet). I am not saying that to be boastful, only to make the point that while you may disapprove of a poor person searching the internet for cheap chips, there are several members who find me quite likeable.
@BarrieJ3 has made the point before that he sees it as an issue of adding value to the community or taking value away from the community. I know lots of people who think I add value. And sure, a few who maybe feel I detract value.
But I think we can all agree that being salty about how someone else lives their life is going to do more damage to you than that other person's lifestyle.
At the end of the day I'm just an unemployed college student with a poker chip addiction. Don't devote time to thinking about me. Go be with your family (or your chips).
I almost want to message the $22,000 seller and let him know that I have more of those RARE official money chips, that I would be willing to let him have for half of what he is asking.
Then I realize I barely have enough time to do important stuff, so I have no time to troll.
Given the price he wants for the 25k chip, that 10k version is a steal at just five bucks.Hey, here’s another one!
This one has watchers

Hmmmm.... maybe that's his real angle -- not actually selling any big-ticket items, but using them as props to justify buyers spending $5 on his ten cent trinkets.... a pretty profitable venture if you can generate enough volume.
