    Well I feel bad for these people now...

    http://www.neopets.com/neoboards/top...5096539&next=1

    Despite having suffered some losses recently due to the owner returning (not this person, someone else). But I feel bad for whoever owns her UC Grey Uni as well. What do you guys think?

    Just thought I'd start a conversation.

    EDIT: Since nobody's saying anything I guess I'll just keep talking...

    losses = nice UC pets. ;__; I will miss them a lot. I worked really hard for the money I spent on them and it was sort of heartbreaking to see all my time and effort wasted, when I was being so careful not to get frozen. Of course I didn't think the owner would miss the pets either so at the same time that I feel sad I can't really feel mad at the original owner, though I was giving the pets characters and stories and all that and the original owner is just letting them sit there. :/ If they would just pop up on the boards or do something I'd feel a lot better but the pets seem wasted in the owners' hands...but I can't really complain, since they were hers first. Or can I?

    Hm.

    I don't see why they're complaining if they don't even play the site anymore tbh

    "maybe someone saw that you had a UC in your account and you didn't play anymore so they hacked your acc just to trade the UC pet? "

    Yeah because hackers actually specifically target semi-active accounts for UC Greys

    I did wonder that as well. I mean, it doesn't sound like they were coming back to play and found this out...sounds like they still wouldn't play if they had their pet and np.

    Anyways, regardless of the money and effort someone spends on buying pets/accounts, they were not rightfully theirs to begin with. These are unauthorized entries and hijackings. If I own a house in another country and don't visit for a year, I sure as hell wouldn't want to pop in one day to find a fuckin' squatter prancing around like a boss. It's still my house I paid for and own, even if I don't use it.

    Most of us may be cheaters on cK, but that doesn't change the reality that our market is based on theft; don't risk unless you're willing to lose the $$$ and effort, or just play legit with your own accounts and pets. Inactive sales are fine for the most part, but still doesn't change my first opinion if the owners come back.

    True, true. Which is why I said I don't really feel mad at the owner in my situation and this one. The situation I linked to is this - someone came back after a while and found 10 mil. stolen and their UC Grey Uni not on their account. This is similar to my own situation (only from the opposite side) in which the old owner also came back and got their UC Royal and Faerie back (pets I bought). In both cases I sort of feel sorry for both parties. Though I am upset I lost things close to my heart I honestly can't blame the old owner for trying to get their stuff back. I'd do the same. And it's their right to their stuff that stops me from buying things stolen from active accounts.

    Neo is like being in the hunger games imo. Survival of the fittest. Do what you can to protect your assets and if you get jumped and don't have proof then shit happens. Can mope, and I feel horrible for her but now she knows what to do in the future.

    The only good thing I see going on on the PC is that it's getting inactive, slowly but surely. At some point there will be nobody left to go around reporting people XD

    If that becomes the case then I can't wait. The people in the PC chat give me migraines
