Yeah, I know what you mean, it annoys me when people send me information
about things I'm interested in... perhaps I just have a lower level of
this than you do. I'm sorry if I offended you, Sellam, but this looked
like a decent person trying to sell something, the start bid is about 1
Pound. There are people on this list that don't have the time or energy
to watch eBay (on which there *are* good deals to be had at times) and I
figured I'd let people know that this was out there.

So, do you also 'hate the morons that spam you' to offer you something for
your collection, or just the ones that have the items up for public sale?
(I understand you have "some adversions" to eBay, but it DOES help some
people.... me, for instance.)
