    Blessing in disguise. How to become more discerning.

    The practice of discernment is part of higher consciousness. Discernment is not just a step up from judgment. It's life's curriculum, it is the opposite of judgement. Through judgment a man reveals what he needs to confront and learn. Through discernment, one reveals what he has mastered.

    Good day

    I'm sorry about that... yeah, there are some big time fatcats out there. Sadly, some people really don't care if you like their product, as long as you'll buy it. Many of them don't seem to realize that it won't have the customer return.

    Did you send a complaint to the company or got your money back? I sure hope so. I'm glad we have Basenotes to order stuff from, though. People here seem reliable and share the same passion, e.g. they won't send you any bad stuff that quickly.

    Yeah... The same happened to me when I bought a pour Chanel Antaeus bottle... (And I paid almost Retail price!)
    I learnt the lesson: don't ever buy any pour bottle from online stores. :-X

    It is hard, though, when you buy something blind or a sample, because you dont maybe recognize the topnotes to be dead. :-[

    That's exactly why I'm still scared nowadays about buying many things online!

    This is indeed a frustrating event. Just out of curiosity, what online retailers have you had issues with lately?

    I second that. Even if you are hesistant about going public about bad sellers, maybe you can PM the ones who ask so they can be avoided.

    Gentlemen and ladies,
    This thread's count of views has shot up pretty quickly. I'm thankful that no one has brought specific swapping and selling problems to it. Liquid provides a perfect link for complaints about businesses members haven't been happy with, but as everyone seems very aware, this isn't the place for discussion of swapping and selling disputes between members. Basenotes members have the ability to leave feedback for trading partners and view feedback for those partners through a member's profile. As Marlen suggests in his directions for selling and swapping, members should look there when they consider swapping and purchasing.

    Swaps and sales between members are the business of the members themselves and not issues for the forums or the site. Regarding content on this board, As Marlen clearly states in the fourth rule of the Basenotes marketplace:

    Of course there's nothing wrong with this thread, and perhaps I'm thus too hasty posting this. Thanks and a tip of the hat to everyone.
