Which one is the real one?
I was chatting with Blurmage on IRC when he mentioned about getting a counterfeit nendoroid in the EOY convention held a few weeks ago. When he actually posted this news on SGCafe to get the views and warn others about this situation, I was appalled to see many comments ridiculing him about his stupidity. They were laughing, insulting and stating that it’s his fault for purchasing a fake figurine, while happily condoning the fact that A FAKE FIGURINE is actually sold in a prestigious convention such as EOY. Let me add that I do not think Blurmage is devoid of all blame. As a buyer, he could have been more informed about the situation, and as many have said in the thread, take this as a painful lesson to know that there are counterfeit stuff.
However, we see comments such as this on a popular Singaporean forum, SGcafe. Sometimes, I feel embarrassed that I am a Singaporean when we have forum users writing in such juvenile language.
They do sadly , I mean , I dun blame PITB , their service is flawless , and not only tat , most SG peeps are cheapskates who just want all the good stuff , even if they are fakes XD Majority of PSP users (Inclusive of myself) Don’t even have a UMD XD
Let me give a scenario. McDonalds accidentally sold some pork on the menu when it is supposed to be Halal. Obviously, McDonalds did not know about this, but it still happened. Muslims are offended because they ate the meat unknowingly and only realized when they consumed the food. Can a plea of ignorance clear McDonalds from any wrong doing? NO WAY. In fact, criminal law usually considers a plea of ignorance to be a rare case because it usually discredits the whole notion of responsibility of a seller. If you would say anything disagreeing about this point of view, I would love to see if it makes sense. I am probably lacking in the ability to understand the logic that goes against the above scenario. I do not deny that the example is not exactly the scenario that Blurmage, but the allegations seemed to hint that the distributor’s ignorance clears them of all sin.
I feel almost insulted and embarrassed to share the Internet with people of retarded behavior and trolling abilities that fail very badly. If you want to troll, please do it in an intelligent manner so that it feels like you actually have a brain. Anyway, before you can say anything, good work Anonymous. You have done a good job.
P.s: Blurmage, you should really just talk to the distributor, ask for a possible refund, and close the issue. Ignore the retards in the thread please.
