Seems that Ethical Tools has a Sell Through Tool that makes it look like your auction is “ending soon” on eBay. PeSA members are using it, although it seems most of the Ethical Tools are “brokeass”, to borrow a term used by Ethilal Tools employees.
This practice is legal according to Ethical Tools, but I wouldn’t bid on an auction with Ethical Tool’s “MTV 10 Spot” look-a-like logo on it. Caveat Emptor!
Toy Ranch has done all the investigation already:
The tool is advertised as “patent pending”, but I haven’t seen a patent applied for.
Here’s the only public description of Ethical Technologies’ Sell Through Tool:
We guarantee you will increase your sales with the Ethical Sell-Through Tool.
For most sellers, we know that our Sell-Through Tool will increase your average number of items sold. Current users have experienced sales increases of 10%, 20%, and in some cases, 40%-50%, sustainable over time. If your sell-through does not increase in one week using the service, you don’t pay. It’s that simple.
We are offering the Ethical Sell-Through Tool as a first in a series of special edition tools. Due to the nature of this service, this offer is limited to the first 250 qualified eBay sellers.
UPDATE: Seems that the !Club may not have illegally spammed customers, and GW_FLASH may not (or may) still be affiliated with the sites below. In my opinion, I’d still stay away from the sites.
Its all over OTWA and The Ross Show.
Jimmy, Carol Ann, and gw_flash spam OTWA, sign up people to their site without prior approval, and contend that they don’t have anything to do with the site.
For no other reason imaginable, other than to hide from prying eyes, Scott Samuel has changed his userid from “EthicalScott” to “Scott_S” on the RuneHQ message forums, frequented by pre-teen boys.
He goes by “Ethicalsdusty” rather than the ”EthicalDusty” gamertag he used in runescape to contact potential young buyers and sellers.
His user number is still #34145 for those that want this information.
He or Mr. Stormy have also removed references to Scott commenting about his morning erections to pre-teen boys, as well as his “selling” and “buying” deals with the pre-teens on the Runescape game.
NOTE: I’ve already sent a collection of posts and Scott’s history to numerous groups and organizations. This attempt at hiding his predation skills probably won’t earn him any reputation capital points.
Scott has convinced Mr. Stormy at RuneHQ that he should change the RuneHQ copyright information to try to protect Scott from any bad pub about his new endeavor with pre-teen boys.
Seems Mr. Stormy doesn’t like people discussing the fact that Scott Samuel makes jokes about his morning erections to pubescent boys!
I can’t believe Mr. Stormy would allow this behavior. Right here, in this thread, Scott compares the “fantasy game” practice of chopping wood to his morning erections, a site dedicated and frequented by a majority of pre-teen boys. This is the exact quote for those hiding Scott’s words, even if they get edited
Logs I cannot use, wood just kinda makes me feel funny when I wake up in the morning.
On the other hand, if you hit me with a fair offer in PM for the t, I would be interested.
PM here at EthicalScott
Anybody protecting Scott is just as guilty as he is, and if he doesn’t think people haven’t been contacting various authorities about this behavior, he’s in for a rude awakening. My ISP already has the details, as well as Illinois departments.
This is the “revised” copyright, which I guess means any NEW material must meet this standard, with a warning. I don’t believe it pertains to any incriminating information.

The new owner of Mootropolis (MacMoo) will have a hard time learning how to moderate a forum.
Although the new owner’s supposed to be a secret, the BillyPilgrim user is OUTED as some guy named SneakyDave.
Already proving that their moderator capabilities are amateurish.
