Ebay notices, was re: PDP-8 on e-bay

I haven't written to this list yet, but I felt I should here. I personally
have benefited a great deal from listening to the talk on here about older
computers that I didn't realize existed.

The fact that someone takes the time, to post obscure e-bay postings, to me,
was a great benefit, due to the fact, that a few of them I had NEVER heard of,
and was able to go look at the ad, and increase my knowledge of older

I know there are a lot of people on this list, that feel e-bay is satanic. I
say you take what you want from any service. In my case I have purchased
antique computers from e-bay, and I have used it purely to go "cool picture" of
an older computer.

I just wanted to add that, and to also say, I really don't understand why
people were getting so upset over an occasional post about an e-bay bid. Just
watch for e-bay as the subject matter, and delete it. I do that with many of
the posts that I don't have any interest in.

My two cents (and maybe more change) :)
