Thank you for your advice Master Yoda. I've already screengrabbed everything I could - including all my pm's w/ Steve, as well as any public statements he and any other mods, members, admins made when stories of his improprieties became known to you and your staff.
I'm pretty sure of the reaction I'm gonna get if I call my local police precinct here in Brooklyn and tell them I wanna file a report cuz someone in Kansas stole my lightsaber ::)
Technically, mail theft (especially w/ the interstate component) is a federal offense, but after spending countless hours on the phone and filing reports w/ USPS customer Service, the Dept of Consumer affairs, and the fraud/theft division of the USPS (basically the legal enforcement branch of the PO) I can tell you it was pretty much a waste of MY time.
As long as no one scares off the current ebay seller, there's at least a small chance I may ever see my saber again - damaged or otherwise. I still don't have much hope - ESPECIALLY if someone's gonna raise a red flag w/ eBay and the seller goes underground again. :-X
As for how this forum (and its Mods and Admins) has handled itself with regard to Steve's illicit activities, I'd be more than happy to discuss the matter privately if you'd entertain the notion. Thanks again for your interest
