|As of July 9th, 2003, I have not received payment ($1800) for an iBook I sold Temna in March... All attempts to get this resolved have failed and the Agora staff has been strangely unresponsive regarding this transaction...Review Timestamp: 09 Jul 2003 04:03

|Traded Temna a hard drive for his shuttle sv24. Had to email Agora mods to get him to ship it. Took over a month to receive it. Warning to future traders to always make him ship first.Review Timestamp: 15 Nov 2002 17:38

|I paypalled Temna $15 for an older graphing calculator which I never recieved. It has been well over a month now, and I am out of the money and have no calculator. He has been slow or never responded to more than one email, and I have recieved a few excuses for reasons why he couldn’t ship me the calculator, but no refund of my money and still no calculator.
I think he is just terribly disorganized and this transaction was lost in the shuffle. I still wish I had my $15 back.
I would not do buisness with this seller again, it has already been more hassle than the damn calculator was worth in the first place AND I’m out money.
Update of the same transaction:
Yesterday I recieved the item and it was in good shape. It has been six weeks since I paypalled Temna the money, and four weeks since I had any sort of contact from him except the general post in Agora.

|This was a flawless transaction, really. We had constant communication, and the whole deal went very smoothly. I would definitely deal with him again, whether in a buyer or seller position

|I have traded so many parts with Temna you could build at least two or three complete systems! Well, pretty close, anyhow.
Sometimes he’s not as quick to respond to e-mail as I would like, but other than that he is a stand-up trader. Never a defective item, always delivers what he says.

|Take Heed traders. Temna has some good ratings but he has had some bad trades that have not been posted due to courtesy not necessarily due this trader. I shipped him an Onstream tape drive and 5 cartridges, ebay value around $400. We agreed he would have 1 week to evaluate the marchandise and either ship it back or pay for it. One week came and went and there was no word from Mr. Temna. 2 weeks came and went and there was no word from Mr. Temna. after 3 weeks and several emails he finally said he had been too busy to evaluate and could he have more time. Sure I said. But why couldn’t he have asked me instead of blowing me off? Fast forward about 2 months. No word from temna, no response to my emails. I have to go through the Ars moderators to get any response of action from this guy. He can’t be bothered to fix his email. Finally by having him put on Ars Agora probation I get a response and I get the drive and cartridges back. To his credit he gave me a socket 7 motherboard to compensate for my aggravation and hassles. I don’t think that temna is dishonest but his communication is the worst I have ever encountered and there are times when it seems he makes very little effort to affect the trade. And he always has excuses. Traders take note.

|I suppose I'm leaving this review for completeness' sake, even though Temna is already banned.
I entered into a trade agreement (several years ago) with Temna to trade two 256Mb ECC PC133 SDRAM DIMM's for a DEC Multia that was decked out (128Mb RAM, several external hard drives, an external CDRW, 2.88mb floppy drive).
To make a long story short, It was nearly SIX MONTHS before I received the RAM (after he said he'd shipped it three different times, and claimed it was lost in the mail - but provided no tracking numbers or shipping insurance claim information), and when I did receive it the RAM was A) 128Mb sticks, half the agreed upon capacity. B) Not ECC as agreed upon. C) PC100, not PC133.
It took SO LONG to get the RAM, and given it wasn't even what we had agreed upon, that the market value of the item I agreed to trade for, and what I got (at the time) was OVER $600.
This guy has a history of horrible trading, and it's a good thing he's banned.Review Timestamp: 17 Aug 2004 11:01
