Sorry eno...I'm very jaded when it comes to anonymous internet sales and auctions and shady characters. I was separated from a good chunk of change, years back on ebay. The person had good ratings until he scammed a whole bunch of us. It turned out, upon investigation (mine, not ebay's who couldn't give a crap) that all the ratings were shill. Afterwards, I would watch internet aution sites looking for shill bidders and raters (It is easy to do) and found there were alot of them. I have bought wine from this thread, as well as from people on vinocellar, but only from people who have been around for a while and are established. It is only a matter of time before someone goes through great lengths to establish themselves on this board in order to rip people off at some future date. Besides, I'm cynical by nature.
