As if asking upwards of a couple thousand bucks for your PS3 wasn't enough, a jackass wants all of $5,000,000 for his PlayStation 3. He whines:

This auction is being listed to help raise money for me to pay my medical school tuition. I waited on line at Wal-mart for over 57 hours. I was even there a whole day before anyone else arrived. I was first in line and when all the PS3's were finally released to the public, I bought everything they had available and therefore, THIS IS THE ULTIMATE PS3 AUCTION! I haven't seen a bigger PS3 auction on eBay yet!

Unfortunately for him, eBay's taken down his auction. Unfortunately for everyone else, he'll no doubt scam enough money to pay for his education, after which he'll become your local doctor.

Munch:

Don't worry about it. First of all, what you did, if anything, what libel him. Slander is spoken. Second, and most important, name-calling is neither slander nor libel. It's a term of opprobrium and is protected speech. Terms of opprobrium include such gems as "fartknocker," "fucktard," "assmunch," and "motherfucker."

As long as you don't allege any criminal behavior on his part, you should be fine. You can't say that he is a rapist, engaging in fraud, a murderer, a shoplifter, a drug dealer, or anything like that. You could say "he sounds like a crook" though that's getting into a gray area. Also, impugning sexuality is actionable unless you're using "gay" as a term of opprobrium, not to allege that he actively participates in homosexual activity.

I think we can all agree, he is a uni-tard (is there anything gayer than a retarded unicorn?)
