no and yes
--------------------------------
as far as the no

no that i do not accept that language and, while I can see u r in some way upset, i still look up to you less...
   I used to wait on my topics in this forum for hours, if not days waiting for a very small  list of members to give me advice or help me when I feel like giving up on the current project i'm working on, also trying to learn new bits of information that i had previously not known. There has even been a time where I felt depressed because i felt like i knew so little compared to any single person on that list and just needed to talk to someone here, at that time i was soo sad that instead fell asleep instead of trying to turn on my laptop to get to this forum.... well 1 less person on that list(at least until i feel differently)

________________________________________________________________

and as far as the yes

after much research i found the next best lcd is a 2.8" for $27USD and is on ebay (with little to no info/data) @ http://cgi.ebay.com/2-8-TFT-LCD-Arduino-Atmega168-328-/160519609750?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item255fb6dd96

Ahh well you see that LCD is common around here (in many variations) so there is actually a lot of info if you go digging.

also, when I mis-read the comment, I interpreted it as if you were stating it as a fact and that you didn't care at all how I felt....

again sorry, there was nothing wrong with what  said at all.

More commonly known as... a scam smiley

"Hey, buy X for $Y!"  So you pay $Y and get an email saying "HAHA Only kidding! You need to give us an extra $Z before we'll send it you!"

Did they still send you the 3.5" one after getting your refund?

in my opinion a scam is when u lose money and can't get it back and get nothing in return...
i got 100% of my money back and lost nothing so to me this is just a sale that wasn't fullfilled

So, did they still send you the 3.5" "free sample" they promised after giving you a refund?

Oh, and many jurisdictions would consider it deception, dodgy, and illegal.  So, whether they refunded you or not, it still sounds like a scam.  Just because you didn't completely go through with it doesn't mean it's not a scam; it just means you personally were refunded and not scammed.

Edit : Practically identical to something Dell got class actioned for a few years ago - http://www.zdnet.co.uk/news/regulation/2005/02/24/dell-sued-over-fraud-allegations-39189086/

they sent me an email saying that I only need to pay shipping Which was $30 + the $20 i spent on the so called 12" lcd so since i asked for a refund i did not get a free sample and by the way i got the choice to get a 4.3" free sample or a 3.5" free sample link to 4.3"

So even the tiny "free sample" was going to cost you $50?
