I'm looking to get into Bitcoin Market (because the more sites for trading the more oportunity, and the more e-wallets the safer I am) but currently it's invite only due to some PayPal buyer frauds (can't say I blame them).
I'm willing to prove my integrity with any simple means you require, I have an eBay account with positive feedback (not a huge number of them but still), I have a BitMarket.eu account where I've already done successfull trading through PayPal (and I can provide the e-mail or the adress of the seller as proof), and I've got an account on this forum where you can find my other posts and judge by them.
I've already sent a message via the contact form on the website, but maybe a user or admin will read this sooner.
I'd appreciate an invite, preferably by an admin or senior trusted member, so I don't get a message later saying something like : "Who the frack are you and what naive idiot invited you here ?"...
Thanks.

P.S.
Some people here say PayPal is crap and should be avoided because they're dead set against bitcoins (obviously because of competition) and screw over sellers who've been tricked by fraudulent buyers, but Americans on this forum should be aware it's not so easy for people in other parts of the world to find an alternative to PayPal. Really the only alternative anywhere that isn't either obscure, difficult or insanely expensive is Dwolla, and that's US only for now. It seems they have plans of going international, but that may be a long way away. I'm certainly rooting for them because PayPal's high fees, stupid rules, frustrating limits and long waiting periods ("pending balance") get on my nerves, and anyway monopoly is never good for customers...
Actually my biggest fear is not getting scammed over PayPal (that can easily be lessened by selling in smaller parcels) but that some idiot buyer is going to mention bitcoins in the PayPal payment message and get my account frozen along with all the funds in it (I'm not sure if they monitor all messages or not, but I wouldn't put it past them). In that case I really have no idea what I'd do. I mean it's easy enough to get a new e-mail address but PayPal has my full name and adress from the card, so it seems I can't get a new PayPal account without an identity change (which I'm certainly not ever going to do). Please correct me if I'm wrong about that.

P.P.S.
Don't let my nick scare you... Smiley

Best alternative for you is bank wire to mtgox - once you're in you're good, as both mtgusd and bitcoins are widely accepted (in this community).

Would you believe that someone tried to sell me an invite, and asked for my ID e-mail to boot, could that be any fishier ? I mean the sum is small but still buying an invite is kind of stupid, and I don't want anyone to know my ID.

Come on people, I see these invites being sold to just about anyone without any questions, and while I'm willing to prove my honesty any way I can I can't get one !? It just doesn't pay to be honest ! Some of these BitcoinMarket members are obviously running a racket with what was meant to be a protective selection measure...

Got an invite for free from a good samaritan (whom I won't name here) and registered.
