    It bothers me that people shark, obviously, but I'm not really interested in getting Teerid, or anyone else banned on tf2-trader. But there's plenty of archived stuff even here on steamrep of Teerid sharking. Just look him up on the forums. He's also gotten himself banned on tf2op, and sourceop for extreme sharking as it is. I actually find it annoying that Penguin has done a lot of business with him in the past with all his sharked unusuals.

    I suspect your comment will prompt Penguin to reply here.

    I am not sure if I have ever investigated Teerid, however I am sure that Penguin would not have any untoward dealings with anyone even remotely suspect, it would be more than his reputation is worth, and I know he values his name in the community.

    I have had many private discussions with Penguin, and I can tell you that in my opinion I find him to be very passionate about ethical behaviour in this game and he does a lot of work behind the scenes for the benefit of the community at large.

    I would like to chime in and say that since last year, I'm no longer a shark. Today I lead multiple services such as a guide based website to help you not getting scammed, an informational tf2 investing blog, a safe and secure backpack buying service for both parties, as well as a free backpack value price checking service.

    I'm not pleased at what I did last year, and since then I've bought another Waxy Wayfinder with Stormy Storm to try to give back to the kid. The guy doesn't seem to know my add invitation exists (or he blocked me), but that hasn't stopped me from trying to give the hat back that I once sharked. If it takes me two years before the guy accepting my add to give it back, so be it. The hat will not leave my inventory until it's given back. Besides waiting for the guy to come back online, I've contacted his friend to write a note on his wall about why I'm adding him back. Ask Helen if you think I'm lying, proof is here: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198056621072 (I joined one of his groups for ease of finding him again)

    I've got into contact with some of the TF2OP staff a few months ago, and here's how it happened. Unbanning me was quite a possibility, but it might cause an uproar with some people which might make OP look bad, so we agreed to have my ban remain, things ended on a good note.

    Update: Datastorm PM'd me and helped me connect with Kumps. He came online just at the right time, and Data was able to talk to him to get him to unblock me so I can return the hat. Thank you Data.

    2:53 - Teeird-Buying TF2/Dota2 BPs For$: Hi
    2:53 - DataStorm: he really has blocked you, or ignored the invite?
    2:54 - Teeird-Buying TF2/Dota2 BPs For$: I tried readding him again after the post, no dice
    2:54 - Teeird-Buying TF2/Dota2 BPs For$: So probably is a block

    2:59 - Teeird-Buying TF2/Dota2 BPs For$: If I'm correct, the steam blocking system doesn't block ingame chat

    the logistics behind it:
    - Teeird added somewhere Kumps, kumps "ignored" the invite, after which steam wont show any invite by teeird to kumps.
    - Kumps hadn't blocked Teeird.

    so I had to jog the system to get them to be "friendly" again.

    After you contacting me and letting me know of the post and I must say that I am flattered by your comments. Though I am sure D2Girls is referring to the TF2Shop penguin. As I have done limited trading fro quite some time now and the trading I have done has not been with teeird.

    With that said I remove myself from this topic, though I am pleased to help any shark reports that are filed at the MCT site. <3

    I was talking about TF2Shop Penguin, not Penguin from MCT. Sorry for the confusion.

    I've never wanted to find you. So I guess I wouldn't know.
