Decided to drop the rant.

...hence the message on the feedback page that says something like "Take with a grain of salt..." or something like that. If it's an aberration in your feedback, it can easily be explained to prospective buyers or sellers.

Still, if you've done no wrong, it sucks that you have a poor feedback response now.

Maybe I'm looking at it wrong. But my reputation, even a virtual one, is very important to me.

In an online community like this, I would argue that your reputation is the most valuable commodity you have here.

I think that 60 votes of positive feedback speaks for itself. I think it'd be a much different situation of you had a feed back of 2, and one of them was negative. :) You've been an active member since you started with the group in 2003 and this is the only negative feedback? - again that says WAAAAY more than one retaliatory comment from one seller.

This is how I look at it - When I see that someone has one negative vote in a long string of positive votes I check the original For Sale thread to see what went wrong. In this case it's clear that you felt there was a problem with the original item and the buyer (you) tried to resolve the issue before leaving feedback. After a suitable amount of time without resolution - you had to resort to telling it like it was in your user feedback. When I see something like this I just write off the negative feedback as retaliation from the original seller. This may not be the case, but it can also fall into the category of you can't please everyone.

Just my dos pesos,
