That's why they did it - too many "no fee" deals that kept them out of the
loop. Some people think that it's just a privacy upgrade but then when you
use their form to send mail, a copy can be intercepted, so you have to watch
what you write. I normally do a question to the seller and ask them to write
me directly at a specific address, then hit them with my
thoughts/ideas/deal. When you mention that you want to buy it right away and
by early closure it would preclude the final value fee (especially on really
low priced things- you basically make squat) they usually perk up and

I do like the way that the question-to-the-seller automagically enters the
item number and title though, that way you're not guessing about what their
point is towards.
