I never said they were not as trustworthy, but it can and definitely does happen from time to time. The one deal I've had that went south on here recently was a member with flawless feedback (well not anymore), but lucky for me he was a dead-beat buyer and not a dead-beat seller.

PAYPAL took the hit, not the buyers, so YES paypal does protect you. As far as entitlement goes, I personally don't spend nearly as much time on here as I do Blowout due to the entitlement the "mods" here have just because they have a fancy little title. Not to mention I was on SCF LONG before Blowout, so what does that tell you?
It's actually not a "fancy little title", it's a rather plain, yet big title on an online forum...Don't forget why they were vested with the authority they have in the first place. The title is just an identifier. It's not like they pick people off the street to help run the site smoothly ;)

Also, what is up with more and more people not leaving feedback on eBay? Very frustrating sometimes, as I'm not a high-volume seller or buyer (300) so every rating and feedback is big to me. Even after politely messaging people about it, I often get no response.
The lack of communication sucks.
