Robert Shuh just called me

  1. Holy cow. I just got a phone call from Robert Shuh about my posts on the thread regarding the "suspicious" eBay auctions. He got my cell number off my website.

    Interesting call. At first he was FURIOUS. Very angry. Like, screaming mad...saying he wanted to crack my skull open. Then he calmed down a bit and apologized. A bunch. He said he just got very upset that people were accusing him of being a scam artist.

    He swears he wasn't trying to rip anybody off. He pointed to his excellent eBay feedback, and generally good history selling drums.

    I told him not to get so worked up over what people on the Internet say.

    So at this point, I don't know. He was a very nice guy the 2nd half of the phone call. And he did change that first auction. But I still don't know what to think about that Highway One...

    The evidence lined up and he was no help against it. He avoided that whole part of the conversation in that thread.

    And the libel suit thing was just ridiculous.

    This guy needs to be banned from TB, and we need a watchdog team keeping an eye on his auctions.

    well most of the people weren't very nice to him... it might be the internet, but if people would talk about me like that, I wouldn't be to happy...

    I totally understand, but this situation seems to have gotten way out of hand if he is now calling people and screaming at them.

    So he calls you up on your cell phone, makes physical threats, i.e. cracking your skull open, then changes his whole attitiude into a nice guy"
    Mmmmm...... sounds like Borderline Personality Disorder. I think the guy is a loose cannon and should be avoided!

    it got out of hand the second people started to get personal, he wasn't an ebayer of a TBer, he was rob...

    now don't get me wrong, you can't call people and make threats like that, but to some extend I do agree with him...
     
  12. rofl IM GONNA CRACK YOUR SKULL OPEN OVER THE INTERNETS!

    in all seriousness, he will probably just read this thread and either flip his lid or never make such a phone call again.
     
  13. Nope, no signs of mental instability here. :rollno:
     
  14. On the other hand, he's not "calling people", he called someone who bid up his eBay auction and then boasted here that he will refuse to pay it, despite eBay's contractual obligation.

    If you're going to go the "vigilante justice" route, don't act surprised when your target complains about it.

    People weren't nice to him??

    SO WHAT.

    Since when is it okay to threaten to crack someone's skull because they weren't NICE to you??

    I'd have either called the police, or invited over to let him try.

    He's a punk.

    apparently you don't read whole topics do you... read the rest, and try again...
    I'm not saying it's okay...

    It's sad that such an obviously talented musician should have to resort to eBay forgery to make a buck (yes, I consider it proved on TB). Guy can't get a gig? It's largely a personality question. Avoid the 'roids.
