Does it even make sense?
It makes sense however we're considering this to be stealing, which is not an ultimatum like murder. Technically there are many people who steal and aren't considered criminals, like Obama, Romney, banks, ISPs, pirates, the list could go on. HE couldn't stop telling me how important it was to ship by X date because he was headed to Alaska. In spite of this there are still people here complaining and he was working on things for people months before me who still didn't receive their stuff.
It makes sense to say that he was finishing the easy jobs first before moving onto the harder ones. Quite frankly a lot of people don't believe in that, myself included, but we all have to remember that not all people are equal in the head and everyone sets their priorities differently. From MY experience with the law, if you opened up a case on something like this it might be February before you see a check, simply because the law system is slow in everything but catching people. So it's almost worth your time to just wait until September and see what happens.
Also, the nincompoop who banned him wasn't really fixing anything, that just makes it harder for everyone here to communicate with the guy, and effectively sealed him off from helping fix his end of the deal here with anyone. It would have made more sense to park his account/ip address and when he gets back, talk to an admin to get it unlocked for the purpose of closing all these deals. From my experience people are innocent until proven guilty in a court, and he's not back from Alaska yet, so the people who begged for his accounts to be banned while he was gone screwed over anyone else who was still waiting for confirmation/shipping/payment on his part.
Unless the accounts simply ARE parked? (Which I doubt)
Posting here in a place where he can't see it and he thinks he's off the hook doesn't solve anything.
Also, if you sent it as a gift paypal isn't going to do anything, since by gifting you relinquish the website of all possible liability besides making sure he gets the money. Best strategy is to wait until September, and if he's back great! If he's not, it's a time to recover losses and move forward. I recall his "mother" saying that he, "had no money". Maybe it went towards are airline ticket to Alaska and enough funds to rent some place out while working at this hatchery. IMO working at a hatchery is nasty stuff, he probably didn't know what he was getting into with that either...
I couldn't see the stealing though, it would be childish, I mean look at the ebay rep? for that much rep, soldering stuff, etc. Someone in his family has to be loaded. My cans smelled like a punch corona cigar when I got them, and those aren't cheap.
