Last week (Thursday) I was doing some searching on Gumtree (like Craigslist etc) for a video lens. Shortly I was presented with an ad for a new lens a at a good price from an on line camera store. It looked good and said they had 1 in stock so I ordered and paid using Paypal ($A550). All cleared and money debited from my credit card which I settled.
Today I get email to say not in stock and they would try to get it in maybe 7-14 days.
I spat the dummy and let them have it - to me it did not seem time for niceties.
I buy tons of stuff on line and have often been told that account is only debited when ready to ship which seems as it should be.
What is the general view about the kind of practice this mob engaged in?

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
