So all I gotta do is start collecting goalie cut jerseys and I could be the 3rd Stooge!? 

Come on, I’ve heard about your bins. You trying to tell me there’s no goalie jerseys in there??

Yeah, but you’re only a Schemp. 

I always liked Shemp but I'm built more like Curly :)

I am a HUGE fan of goalies, as a matter of fact, Every TBTC from 1991-92 in my collection has a goalie on them except my white 1992 All Star jersey but it's gonna get stripped and corrected.  
I never did collected goalie cuts though. 
You guys don't need the competition

The amount of I guess you can call "price shaming" in these groups has just gone to hell over the past year.  And 99% of the time it is from people I have never or hardly ever post before.

What's wrong if not liking the price to just moving on?

We don’t allow it in the Authentic group. Instant ban. Sick and tired of it.

That’s how it should be. Don’t interfere in other people’s sales.

Thank god you guys do.  I mostly see it in the game worn groups these days.  It's always been around but now I am seeing pretty consistently.

Given that it's the people you never heard of or hardly post, I'm guessing it's people who don't have much of a collection (and cannot afford it).  Therefore, their aim is to drive the market down to where they can enter.

From the rules:

No Price Shaming

Keep your snickering, sarcastic comments, and laughing emojis/reactions to yourself. No one is forcing you to buy anything on here. If you don't like the asking price, move on. Or, message the seller privately to negotiate.

I am not even sure if their goal is to drive the market down.  I think they are just talking out of their Arse.

I have been meaning to mention this since the weekend.

For years I have been firmly in the camp of always posting a price on listings.  However, over the past year or so of behavior I see online in the various FB groups, I have to say I am getting more and more sympathetic to the "PM for price" option.  The price shaming in some of the groups have gotten pretty out of control.  It also doesn't help that 90% of the ones leading that charge are guys that I never or rarely contribute to begin with.

Overall, things that I used to see black in white in this hobby has slowly turned into a lot of shades of gray.

 

Edit: I see my previous posts from a month or so ago is about the same thing.  I guess it is getting that bothersome to me (or that I am slowly losing my mind lol).

I deactivated my FB account about two years ago because I got so sick and tired of seeing everyone tearing eachother apart over politics and such.
At first, the only thing I missed were the jersey groups, even though I felt they were already going down the $hitter back then. But after I noticed I didn’t make near as many spontaneous purchases on stuff that really didn’t fit my collection, I also realized there was zero reason for me to stay on it at all. Trust me, I’m much happier and don’t miss any part of social media at all. Besides, my best friend, “The Jerk from Staten Island” is already right here.

Is it wrong that I’m flattered?
