Oh heck no.  I let it go on Ebay and didn't even bother going after it.  The guy was an idoit so there was no way I was going to buy it from him weather I wanted it or not.  I was thinking about bidding on it using one of my other names and then leave him a negative feedback for being an idiot, but I just let it go.  The jacket ended up selling for about $102 on Ebay this morning.

 Having an auction on Ebay means you want to sell something.

 Why would asking a question about buying it set off a seller.

 I've snagged a few things I needed by asking for alternatives,
the seller got his money and was happy as was I. 

 When no other option is available, I don't expect a short lecture,
and certainly don't expect to be admonished... after all I still
might be a customer.

 I liked your last part too Brett.

 and... just couldn't resist, I just sent him a message asking if
he had a Buy it Now option... <grin>
