Unless there is a surprise in my PO box (which doesn't get checked as often these days, unless i'm expecting something...too much of a pain to drag the baby in)...ebay doesn't like me. I would actually use a steno pad, too. Maybe to write my plans and to-do lists for selling on other sites  :0771

I feel kinda like there was a party I really didn't want to go to, but would've liked to receive an invitation anyway and didn't.

Heh . . . maybe I should hold a charity auction for my spare.   :0771

Maybe I'll list it on eBay on the ID I for which I got one first . . . you know, the one where I've never even sold anything, much less had a store.

There was one in my PO box. delivered 7-2. I actually HAVE posted in the stores board with that ID and contributed positive info... years ago. 

On the label there was a ? next to the addressee... *luna*. The PO is used to getting mail sent to 2 names and 2 business name variants, but *luna* is not on the list of recipients attached to my box.

I guess it was a spoof since ebay didn't use my real name  :0240

I got mine today.

The paper is a bit rough and thick for what I have in mind to use it for, but I will hang it in the bathroom just in case.

Howard.

According to everything I've been reading, they are showing the signs of desperation---without admitting it. 

Now let me see, they are sending items to id's which have never sold, but have posted on the stores boards.  (more or less)  I'm sure there's some strange ebay-logic in there somewhere.

Glad to be ebay-free....an august 2006 refugee

I have just the thing in my bathroom you can use to mop it up with.
