Alright, enough of this. If anything this shows why we should keep politics off the boards. Agree to disagree.

They're getting exactly what they deserve for selling used stuff and calling it refurbished . The people doing unboxing videos and saying they're sketchy are not one gang of evildoers . It's people from all corners of the retro gaming scene confirming it .
   Bottom line is that , regardless of price , DKOldies is advertising that they refurbish all consoles , claiming they open them and clean and repair them all as needed and they're not . Nearly all of the consoles that people have bought for unboxing videos have been dirty inside , some were filthy , a lot of the consoles were broken in some way . They don't replace thermal paste on consoles that it's a potential problem . I'm not sure why people are defending them at this point , this has actually been going on for like 3 months now .
 
Edit - I'm not saying that anybody deserves a death threat . I'm also taking everything that DKOldies claims with a grain of salt .   

From what I've heard they cherry pick customers. old regulars that buy allot get the proper service like shown in the vids those orders are given to higherups, for everyone else it's a wild card.

Those people might defend them since they get a good service

That's pretty much what I've heard . I know that they offer customers freebies to post unboxings and then they use those in their own videos . They only use and reward the positive ones .

But I've also seem them film themselves owning up to mistakes, and replacing orders and even chipping in extras as an apology. Are you contending that they'd typically just stiff any customer who's not satisfied?

They already stiffed the customer in the initial sale. lol

You cant buy guns here legal that easy unless you are a member of a gunclub. And we dont have alot of those. So we also dont have that many pointless shootings in schools, bars, etc.
Yeah, im from the Netherlands, and thats in Europe. I might count 1 here in 50+ years!?

Here in the US of A, we can't have nice things.

You see, the government is comin' for us here. They're comin', and they're just gonna keep comin', and then we're gonna be forced to reenact the revolutionary war, just like we watched on the History channel. In the meantime, people just gonna have to take a shootin' up here and shootin' up there. We gotta be ready, cuz they're comin'.

I mean you can go ahead and try to talk down about it, but abso-freaking-lutely. I trust the government as much as I trust the crackhead on the corner. The forefathers did as well. And I keep a gun for both.

Right, so no one should infringe on the regulations.  Glad we agree.

Adding regulations are infringing.

"Infringe: Act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on."

Dude, you are deliberately leaving out the first part.  It says well regulated.

No, you are. "A well regulated militia."

Whereas the individual: "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Wanting more robust gun control laws (you know, the regulated part of well-regulated militia) is not the same coming to get everyone's guns.

"Shall not be infringed upon"

And we do have gun control. It's not like anyone can walk into a store and just go home with a gun. It takes criminal and mental background checks, a gun safety course, and having a locked gun safe...what more do you want?!

Good thing there's no way to buy a gun without going to a store... oh wait!

In Tennessee, private sellers don't have to do a background check. If you buy a gun from someone without a federal license (gun show, yard sale, or even online), you don't have to go through a background check.

And there is no permit required for open carry.

Good. How it should be. It's my property to do with what I want. Free country.

So your previous screed about the "controls" is pointless.   Anyone can have a gun, and all that stuff you just laid out is performative.

"The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be INFRINGED"

2nd highest law in the land. It's pretty important. Don't like it? Then leave. Cause you aren't taking that away. And I guarantee there are a whole lot of people in this country that agree despite all you people trying your damndest to change what this country is founded on.

Gun control does not equal taking away all guns. It means controlling access. Make them more expensive. Put a high amount of insurance on them. Add the most thorough background checks you've ever seen.

Remember, the second amendment (probably the only amendment the Repulikkkans know) was written when guns were archaic contraptions of wood and metal. I'm not a historian but, I'm sure the idea of something that could discharge hundreds of bullets in seconds wasn't in the thought process.

The thought process was having a means to defend ourselves from the government should the need ever arise again as it already has happened. They didn't write the 2nd amendment to shoot bucks, that's just a bonus. If the government has every faucet of control over guns that defeats the entire purpose. The people are supposed to have the power and government is supposed to work for them, not the other way around. And the idea of of governments abusing their power is far from archaic.

The government has abused their power since the jump. That's nothing new. But. None of that matters when the handguns you're likely carrying around are just as easy to access as the ones capable of unleashing so much devastation within seconds. When I/someone is asking for gun control, it doesn't equal the soundbite of "the liberals are trying to take away our guns!" No, it's demanding common sense. That backwards way of thinking of needing an assault weapon to defend yourself from the government is antiquated.

Happy Easter, y'all!

Tell the Ukraine it's antiquated. If you trust the government, you're an idiot, period.

The founding fathers and Bill of Rights disagree with you. Our entire country was founded on revolution and not letting the government have too much control. But I guess they were just "conspiracy theorists".

The country was founded on a lot of things that were not so great, and they were bound to have got some things wrong. We clearly are suffering some of the effects, when you look at our gun violence and compare it to other developed nations. It doesn't have to be that way.

Then you can naively trust the crooked government. History has shown us that governments shouldn't be trusted (Roman Empire, British control in territories, French Revolution, Soviet Union, etc.) and the founding fathers were wise enough to ensure a way to fight back if they ever cross the line.

...but Tim Pool says we should all be able to purchase our own nukes. Why can't I purchase a nuke? It's a free country! If I need a canon or a bazooka, or maybe an anti-aircraft missile or two... I should be able to load up on that. The constitution says so! Regulation-shmegulation. Anarchy for me, fascism for thee.

But you think the government that lies to us on a daily basis should...yeah, that's exactly why we should have guns

The government lies to us on a daily basis? Individual politicians lie, and we should remove money from politics so that they will answer only to the people and not their donors, sure. I think the media spins all the time, and does the bidding of their shareholders. I don't think "the government" lies to us all the time and no, I'm not afraid of the big, bad government. That's a crazy conspiracy theory. The only sane argument for guns, is for sport, and for personal self-defense. Not because "we're gonna have a revolution". We're not gonna have a revolution, you're not gonna go fight a literal war in your back yard amongst your neighbors. It ain't happening, and you don't need a military grade weapon to go hunting, or to protect yourself.

That already happened. The militias that are mentioned in the Constitution were forced to disband or were destroyed by the Continental Army or Federalised Army Regulars. Even back then the people didn't want to give up their guns, and the government came and forced them to do it.

"Forced to disband"

Nice twist on the truth there. They formed an official military rather than the civilian backed rebel forces that fought in the Revolutionary War is what happened. But they did not take civilian's personal weapons from them.

Nah, they deserve it. They did it to themselves. If they don't want to get trash talked then they probably shouldn't sell 2 to 3 times above market value. I don't understand how they stay in business.

I could try to sell my N64 for $800. Doesn't mean I deserve bashing. You don't HAVE to buy my stuff, just like you don't HAVE to trade your games into GameStop. It's not like GS owes people more money for their used games. Nobody is owed anything. Do the research, and make your own calculated transactions. Most of the people who buy from DK Oldies, don't care about the nitpicking and the prices, obviously.

I don't buy from DK Oldies because it's too expensive and you don't get to see it. I'm not automatically entitled to a fair price and something in pristine condition from them, sight unseen. Even still, if I'm not happy with it, they do returns and exchanges. So what is all the whining truly about?

You're right, I don't have to buy from them, and I don't. But selling at ridiculous prices still opens them up to bashing
