I still feel bad that I had to let go of them
I've been lurking here for a while, and don't generally like to post (that is just my personality type), but I just can't hold my tongue any longer.
For the love of God, please do not apologize.
You don't owe ANYONE an explaination as to why you wanted to sell something that you own and purchased with your own hard-earned money.
I am a big Grado fan myself, but the cult-like Grado atmosphere generated in this thread by some individuals in an attempt to call out, sling insults at, or try to bully someone into NOT selling something they own is sickining.
If you want to sell your HF-1s at a profit on Ebay, then go for it. The Grado 'mafia' will not hunt you down and break your legs for doing so. John Grado will not curl up in a fetal position, and quitely weep in a dark corner because you sold a pair of HF-1s on Ebay. Life will continue on as it normally would, and the sun will probably still come out tomorrow.
I followed a few of those HF-1 auctions as well. I noticed a few individuals that created new bogus accounts with 'clever' account names with zero feedback to artificially bid up the auction (to outragous prices) in what I can only assume to be an attempt to sabotage the auction. I think it is a pretty safe bet that the individuals in question are members of this message board, and were so against the idea of someone selling HF-1s on Ebay, they went to these lenghts in an attempt to ruin the Ebay auction. I will bite my tongue and not turley express how I feel about those people, but I can tell you it isn't pleasant.
Ok, I feel better now.
