Got a right d*ck on Discogs


my message to Discogs


I had a record for sale, plainly stated as an unofficial release; a buyer contacted me and asked me if it was a reissue or an original. I told him it was 100% reissue/bootleg and that I would not sell a reissue and pretend it is an original. Today I find he has left me neutral feedback because "he bought the wrong version". Now what fault is it of mine that he bought the wrong version? I was honest in my description, and I also confirmed to him in writing exactly what the record I was selling was. Are you able to remove this feedback or am I stuck with it? details are below:


Bobbi Lynn — Earthquake / Opportunity Street (7", Single, Promo, Unofficial) (Elf (2) — 90,009)
Media Condition: Very Good Plus (VG+)
Sleeve Condition: Not Graded
Paper scuffs but excellent plus


Q: Hi,your ad says unofficial promo, does that mean a boot or is this original?. I would only wish to buy if on orig.demo, thanks


My Answer: Peter, no it’s exactly that — unofficial = bootleg. I wouldn’t try and pass off a boot as an original. Original will cost 30 or 40 quid. I have a UK Stateside demo original but not on US.


The feedback he left for me:
Record was not the issue I required

I'm not sure if you can do this on Discogs but if you can I would leave him negative feedback - he's already posted his feedback so can't do anything about it

next time I buy a record off you I will leave negative feedback to the effect that "record as stated and delivered BUT not at the price I wanted to pay"  :wicked:

I have had that problem resolved in my favour in the past after submitting a Discogs support request. Have very little trouble selling on there though to be honest.

I've bought a few records off Pete and always conservatively graded and accurate description of the issue.

The buyer is a stump but if he wants an original then put the record for sale on ebay and describe it as unofficial release then he will surely make a profit and possibly enough to buy Pete's Stateside copy (if Pete would sell it to him), there are even more stumps on ebay inflating the price of bootlegs that sometimes exceed the price of originals on Discogs.

I'd be tempted to ask Discogs if there is anything they can do, you have nothing to lose.
