And I don't want to read the threa that ensues the day after the "middle man" decides to disappear himself with a bunch of people's cards. The system just needs us to continue to trust it.

I am hoping that is not what you meant, but to imply I'd take the cards and run is crazy. Especially considering I'm the guy fighting tooth and nail here to get this person behind bars and get everyone what is rightfully theirs.
I have given my names, address, phone number, and even posted pictures before. I highly doubt I'd make it far running with the cards.
I am gonna assume you did not mean me, but just meant if a middle man was used there is risk as well.

BTW, I think a middle man is just a bad idea in general. This is not implying anyone in particular would do anything. But if you continue to add more steps into the trade, eventually one of the steps is going to fail. Keep it as basic and simple as it already is.

I actually believed his story, and he was quite easy to work with in the secret santa I ran this past December. Of coarse we cannot control the bad things people do, which unfortunalety is what makes the world go around. I personally believe most people I run into are honest, trustworthy, good people in general. Hopefully we have all learned a leason, which is simply that no matter what the "value police" think, there are bad/dishonest people in this world that prey on good honest people. FYI, I am in favor of using a third party/moderator for a higher end trade, and maybe we can put a value of some sort to help meet this criteria if both parties were to agree.
