Your analogy falls flat. NO ONE is asking for your help. You're volunteering it when not even being asked.
Also to address your second point what you've described is considered a rip-off. At the end of the deal, both parties got exactly what they bargained for. There's nothing illegal with that.
What you've done is scam people, which means you defrauded them. Your victims get something quite different from what they've bargained for.
If you don't understand the difference that then look it up.
Of course they are asking for help. They are so stupid they either gave their gear to someone to "try on", or gotten played via the Trade window. Then they come and post Q_Q threads. Clearly they are in need of help.
And u still can't point out which part of what i said in my "help" is incorrect, in the example post i linked before http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6759326005#2. Becoz theres nothing wrong with it, yet u are still insist that i'm there to provide false information to mislead people.
coolfoolboo and u share one thing in common, u both think that what YOU think should be the norm and standard that everyone else abides by. In ur moments of arrogance, u tried to give definitions, then got torn apart by it.
Ur definition of a scammer was
A person who gains the confidence of a victim and uses it to defraud that victim.
Now ur arguing that only includes "scamming per se" (talk about a circular definition...), not "rip-offs".
Do u even know what defraud means? It means gaining by means of deception, illegally.
Does rip-offs and "scamming" both include deception? Yes.
Are they illegal in D3? No.
Are they immoral? U rip-off ppl, so ur gona say its okay. U don't "scam", so ur gona say its immoral.
People like u and coolfoolboo are nothing but digusting lowlifes who twist defintions to serve ur own purposes, then try act like saints to teach others.
At least i've come to terms that scamming is not a nice thing almost 4 months ago, and ceased. While people like u choose to carry on with ur baseless accusations against my posts for no reason, other than ur self-fulfilling prophecy that actions u conduct are OK, and actions u don't aren't.
