Ferdi is well-known around the list, as others will tell you.  I avoid
doing business with people who have a bad reputation... in other
words, check 'em out before your send 'em your gold.

I've always tried to properly represent items I list for sale, and
when I screw up, I ask what I can do to fix it.  Then I do what they
ask.  A ruined reputation is worse than any loss of revenue.  This is
universally true whether one is a prostitute, a blacksmith, or a
physician.  (Yes, I am ONE of the three... take your pick!)

"Nothing is ever so bad that it couldn't be worse, and if it could be
worse than it is, then maybe its not so bad!"
