Ah yes.. Automated pricing. Gotta love it.

I’ve seen it happen in online games. They’ll set up bots to detect when certain items are being bought in bulk, and raise prices quickly, which causes other bots to react.. you’ll wind up suddenly having vendor trash items selling for thousands of times what they’re worth.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?
