I may have done something rather foolish. Never again will I be allowed to sneer at an eBay client who does something silly.

See, we wanted to get a copy of City of Heroes on the cheap.
rubyloot sent me some eBay links to open auctions. I clicked on one that had a buy-it-now for 24 bucks. Without LOOKING CLOSER, I smiled at the shiny pretty picture of the game in its box, and clicked the button, then clicked Submit.

Then I realized that it said "EXPLOITS" all over it.

Bloody hell.

I asked the person politely to please cancel my buy-it-now, and relist, because no way do I want to spend that on a list of ten bugs that can be used to tweak the game.

If they say 'yes' then good. If not, I'll buy it anyway (my fault) and then I'll send a copy to anyone who wants to send me $1.25 on Paypal.

EDIT TO ADD:
The seller is willing to cancel the sale. I'll refund her listing fee (about a buck) if the thing doesn't sell when relisted.

Whoops
Ironically, you can probably find the same ten exploits floating around the web for free.

Incidentally, if you do any CoHing on the Victory server, that's where my two most-currently-played characters are. Drop me a line. :)
