"Selling MTG cards for money almost requires you to be an expert in online sales.."

Did you ever get into online forums for MTG stuff?
I used to moderate a forum called "The Rumor Mill", on MTGNews and MTGSalvation. We ticked off Hasbro/Wizards of the Coast for many years, excitedly talking about upcoming releases.
