The lies revealed (my reaction on Sternenstaubs feedback for me, whick was filled with lies)
To begin: After 2 trades with this member, a third one ended very bad. There was already a struggling communication during the second trade, but no escalation yet. Sternenstaub left, in response to my actions/feedback against her dishonesty, also a neutral feedback on my profile. Only in hér feedback, many lies were told. Since i was the one leaving a neutral first, i haven't been able to respond back at these lies. Hereby i give myself the last chance.
Sternenstaub starts her rant with stating she hasn't been happy at all trading with me. If she has NEVER been happy, why did she continue and why kept she asking me to do even a 4th trade?! If my ponies were só not as discribed, why did she even send a letter along her last parcel, to ask me to write with her and keep trading? Since this member is so sure i am the one being non truthfull, why did she still want to go further ánd gave 2 positive feedbacks for our 1st & 2nd trade on MLPArena?! I'll tell ya: because my ponies were perfect and she's been given pictures up front before i sended them! Only pony w/ problem was Dutch Dolphin Pony (mark next to symbol). She got at least 3 pictures of this pony and the mark was perfectly visible! She knew. Again, the other (Nirvanas) were perfect and she knows d*mn well they were.
There is one thing Sternenstaub did not lie about, and i will be honest with you all to admit it. In the first trade we had, i wrapped the ponies in newspaper. Understand: this was a honest mistake. I am buying ponies for years, but only started selling since (somewhere summer) 2011. I was not aware that the ponies would get spots or whatever they had, this way. Sternenstaub only started complaining about this part after my feedback was left! Never before did she say anything about it to me, but now suddenly she mentions it(!!?) Why not send me a polite message with the tip to not do this again? She could have contacted me all these months and make me aware of this honest mistake. This is another perfect example of my feedback on her about her lying (or ignoring) or even insulting a member/trader/whatever when one pulls up an honest look on her.
Another lie from this member is when she stated i wanted to return a pony (German Skydance). False again. I have, as i always do, sent a polite message. I asked Stern what the spot was, if it was cancer (one of my friends thought so and i wanted to be sure). Even when asking this polite, Stern got VERY offensive. Shé was the one who said i wanted to return the pony, not me. I PM'd back and told her i only asked a question and never said i wanted to return it!
So, even after me PMing this, she stíll sticks with the lie and writes it on my feedback, while she knóws it's not the case at all! It's the way she handles seller/traders (more about this can be found in "The Back-up", with proof i found on the internet).
The sad thing about the lies in the 1st and 2nd trade, is i don't have the messages anymore. I then still gave Stern the benifit of the doubt and trusted her. The only messages i still have are from our 3rd trade, by then i saw her true colors.
Stern then copy's one of my last messages to her. I díd send this, but will explain 2 things:
- I have been in contact with one of Arena's moderators for months, from the moment my trust was gone. This moderator (i'm not sure if i may say her name, so i'll keep it private) knows everything and i told her, after i was so worn out by Sternenstaub, i had no energy left to argue with Stern again (since, like i said: when i díd speak up before, she either ignores it or gets defensive/mad).
Yes, this has not been the smartest thing i did, i'll admit. But that is when i come to my
- point: the feedback i left for Stern, clearly has nothing to do with the ponies she sended (in the PM stern copied you see me talk about the ponies). I have complains about Stern's behaviour. Like i already said to her; i do not trust her, so i've been at least honest. It's never fun when you hear someone does not trust you, but i have always been very polite with this member.
To continue on me being polite, Sternenstaub did not show ány respect towards me. Proof of this can be found in the feedback she left on my profile; she says i am weird and 'a bit Schizofrenic'. (At the time you read this – MLP Arena moderators may have deleted it and i thank them for keeping Arena a safe place!)
This insult is só unfair and só unprofessional and that's another reason i want to warn people: if you confront this lady with her behaviour; this is what you get as a thanks.
No honesty...no respect... nothing.
If Sternenstaub had sticked with the facts; her feedback for me would be her very right; but since she had no facts at all, she did nothing else but lie. It's very sad the feedback system gets abused this way.
Another weird thing is that this member is writing feedback for hér experiences, but suddenly talks about another member, Buffy. Again, i would gladly explain some facts.
Buffy and i, indeed, had some struggle, i opened a topic in the Trader Support (Stern says i only open these to ruin other members good reputation. Kinda immature to claim this while it's very clear why i opened any of the 3 topics there).
I want to start that i never said anything about Buffy not being trustable. I even said, in my neutral feedback for Buffy, that she for sure is a nice seller, the only thing that i did not like, was an issue on the pony that was never mentioned.
Buffy took her very right to respond on this. In the beginning, i did not understand, but now i see Buffy and I just had different opinions and that's very ok. Buffy never lied to me and i personally have no problems with her.
But... why is Sternenstaub talking about Buffy in the feedback she writes about her OWN experiences?! The subject 'German Forum' is totally weird to mention like she did. Again, another story filled with lies. Let me explain further.
Sternenstaub claims i started the topic on her German Forum, but Buffy was talking about a buyer (me) and started the story (let me make absolutely clear: Buffy did nothing wrong here!)
I responded to Buffy's story so the German forum would know the buyers side in this. Sternenstaub is the moderator on this forum and deleted my contribution without letting me know anything. Buffy's comments were still there...
I, again, confronted Stern with yet another weird action on her side. As you see, another lie came, as she is telling shé contacted me! She never did; i had to find out myself that my comment was gone and i also had to seek contact myself. Stern claimed she had no time and had a life outside the forum. To me, this was her last lie. Deleting my contribution, she had time for, but not the extra 30 seconds to also delete Buffy's?! Offcourse not. Since Buffy is her friend, and hokuspokus (me ;) was the one she already had issues with, this was the easiest for hér to do (= giving me no chance to explain ANYTHING & make me look like the bad guy in this whole issue). While all i was, has been honest and in all respect giving a response on a subject that was about me.
I have indeed let Stern delete my account on the German Forum. I was done. I gave this woman so many chances, but she kept on going on with what she did. Read both feedbacks on both profiles and see the difference. I'm sad that while i've been so polite and honest, Stern shows no respect towards me at all and fills my feedback with lies and insults. Sadly i have no proof about her quotes on the 1nd and 2nd trade. I really wish i did, because the behaviour of Stern needs to be stopped.
Not liking me is perfectly fine, but insulting? I thought that would never be allowed at Arena.
This will for sure be my last complain/story on Sternenstaub. Feel free to correct me or critique me if i even talk about it again. I know i can talk much, but that's how much this woman is hurting me, and i know she's also hurt others (proof can be found in "The Back-up"). This is why i want to drop a warning on her behaviour and lies.
I think this is finally some honest words on the dark side of this person. I've read and heared other stories, but for several reasons, no one was able to leave feedback for it.
I hereby copied other's experiences with Stern (Bad Trader mainpage, click "The Back-up"), to have you all see, i am not making this up. The lies about not receiving packages seem to come up again and again. Please read these stories with care; some people lost both ponies + money to this lady, and that has making me very sad. Offcourse you're free to do business with her, but don't say you haven't been warned.
Unlike Sternenstaub says; this story is NOT to get back at her. She's turning the tabs yet again; she's the one who got back at mé, because this woman can't handle the truth being revealed about what she pulls.
