My reply is meant for Gandalf. Others have tried to help and I much appreciate their suggestions. Why is he allowed to get away with this all the time?

I think he was making a slight joke....try not to take it sooooo seriously. Or, he could have been making a serious offer

for gawds sake, if we all went around dissecting everything that was said to us in jest or otherwise,, why would we be? just lighten up.

Just a tongue in cheek offer I would suggest...

You over reacted to a litle joke, nothing more, nothing less. Your reaction was unwarranted. Perhaps a sense of humour would help?

PS How on earth do you find using ebay a hassle?

why = where...

I see you have ticked this without further comment.

If you have a serious complaint it is always better to use the 'contact moderator' facility. That way threads of a personal nature do not develop.

On this matter I like all the other posters saw this as no more than an attempt at humour, certainly not an insult directed at you.

I would suggest you keep the thread in your favourites. It is almost regarded as a Medal Of Honour to receive a humorous/snide/sarcastic/not rocket science/etc, post from this most sagacious wizard.

Stepping out onto these hallowed boards and being ignored by this Perfectly Ponderful Person must be awful for anyone who has so far been missed so I think you should accept his post in the spirit in which it was probably intended, unless of course you have, LOL.

At least you were insulted by an expert..:-)

to all this, and to allow it to continue would be to invite a 'Friday night fight' as I call them, so I'm going to lock the thread.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
