He shows a tube tester with 6 tubes in it and has several negatives and neutrals against him. Has anyone dealt with this guy?

Seller has been oft discussed for his goofy "refurbished" description of tubes he tests with a cheap emission tester. He tosses perfectly good tubes because they don't meet his personal bogey. Apparently never read the Radiotron Designer's Handbook to learn how to test tubes and know what a good tube is.

Anybody showing a pic of a tube tester resting at zero with a bunch of tubes plugged in wouldn't be my preference of vendor.
How less-convincing can you be apart from smashing them with a hammer to show the insides. :(
