Bricklink Seller Review - Eye for Bricks

Have you ever considered your own world view? I don't mean regarding politics or religion or economics. I mean things like a cup of coffee. How many different countries have you had a cup of coffee in? It can be quite different around the world. I think too many people in the LEGO world have a very limited world view. Shipping is how much? Where's my order, is the seller a scammer? Why's this piece so expensive. Like many things, LEGO can be a great gateway to expanding your world view... if you let it.

Recommendation
Through no fault of the seller's, shipping time took over 6 weeks. I was pretty non-chalant about it, despite the fact that I had to borrow pieces from other projects and friends. The seller never bothered to check in though and was sure to let me know at one point that since I had chosen the non-trace method that he was not responsible. I would like to know what his reaction is when his orders take 6 weeks to arrive. Seller has left no less than 34 negs and 157 neutrals for other members. I guess I'm glad I didn't complain lest I would have received a neutral. Maybe the seller needs to be less reactive and more proactive?
