This is simply deflection. You're trying to make one person's faults seem OK by finding fault with others, others who were not even the subject of this particular thread. Ever hear of two wrongs don't make a right?

My opinion would be the same for any seller who followed these practices, I don't have an agenda for or against Probstein either way. But reading this thread, there seems to be more than enough proof that Probstein is aware of the issue and is choosing to simply ignore it. For you to say Probstein has no accountability only because eBay happens to provide a way to see that shilling is going on is ludicrous. He could stop it from happening altogether and make this a moot point, yet instead he chooses to allow it to go on. I'm positive many bidders do not go through the trouble of looking at bid history and the like. By Probstein allowing this Panky guy to continue shilling, my opinion is that he is banking on the fly-by-night buyers who are going to get shilled and never know it happened to them. That is completely shady. If you have a problem and it's made blatantly clear to you, you fix it, or you suffer the ramifications to your reputation. Sounds like he's made his choice.

Hollywood Collectibles is Rich Altman's operation and I've always understood him to be very reputable.
