It does not exist. The idea of sharking is idiotic. It is not possible to profit without sharking (Unless you magically get OP offers from strangers every day). What some people call sharking, others call bias. In the end, if someone chooses to believe that something is a certain value, their own fault. Think about it people.

@Almagro - To profit an item, you must ask for more than what it is worth. In other words, you shark to profit. Do you see the idiocy in the whole concept of "sharking"?

Alright, sure. My point in making this thread though is to say that everyone "sharks" and that there really is not anything wrong with it. People profit through their ability to make people pay more than something is worth for an item.

I ask for offers and wait for something I win in, I never say "I want DB for RICS" I say "offer on RICS"

To clarify, my previous post was for L2000. Anyway, you may think that Almagro, but not everyone has the same values on everything. So when you send an offer that is using the correct values in your opinion, someone else may think that you are using fake values, due to your own bias, which people call sharking.

If I am biased and say that I will only accept 100k for my Emerald Crescent Samurai, and someone gives me 100k for it, is that considered sharking?

So you're saying sharking only involves other people? It is impossible to shark on your own?

Okay fine, I'll be more clear. You are saying that it is impossible to be sharked by only one account? That's just called profiting?

whoops forgot there was the second type of sharking too

creating fake offers like for instance if i went around and told people there was a euro + darkseed offer on red grind

and there was not

i would be sharking

sharking is knowingly lying

Wouldn't the fault fall upon the person who is stupid enough to believe that? Are we just assuming that everyone hopelessly unintelligent and unable to see past such lies?

There are no stupid people with over 100k. This happens for a reason. People who are not able to understand values and profiting do not deserve to have good items. Haven't we all accepted a bad trade once or twice in the infancy of our trading that has helped us learn how to become the excellent traders we are today? I know I have.

Honestly though, all personal opinions aside, there are not many if any stupid people with over 100k. If they do have over 100k, they do not have it for long. Stupid people do not deserve to have good items. There is always a winner and a loser in every trade, and those who have knowledge of values are those who will end up winning.
