    I know we are not supposed to post links to live auctions, but I thought this may need posting. Mods, please move or delete if I am wrong here.

    I recently caught this guy using pics of a custom lightsaber I made, hyperlinked directly from my website in his auction. I shut him down by altering my website code, and for the longest time he had a "red x" where my pic used to be. On top of all that, he claimed his instruction book was used to make the light sabre in question. As it was my saber, I know this to be false..
    I see he has a new pic up now of what appears to be a real graflex. Again he says it was built using his plans.
    If this is one of your pics, and there are others on his listing, you might want to let him know how you feel. I did not report him to ebay, as I caught it in time and I was feeling nice that day, but........
    BTW, if this is a member here, you should D**N well know better.

    It'd almost be worth the $10 just to leave a neg feedback saying what this guy is actually up to.

    This guy can't even spell his username correctly. I don't trust anyone that can't spellcheck their eBay auctions, no matter what the feedback rating is.

    The pic of the 2 Graflex sabers are linked directly from Matt Munson's website. Hopefully he'll see this and do something about it.
