Last week I start to sell off my HO scale train collection, so of course there are many duplicates,I once bought a large lot of cars that were all the same except the car numbers were all different, so instead of writing out a whole new ad for each car I just changed the car numbers in the listing itself, but I used the same header, I posted them in the late afternoon, by the next morning they had thrown off all the duplicates, I guess you have to change the listing somehow, I was pissed so I called them and explained they were all different, they said it didn't matter what the ad said but what the listing said,so I asked him why they didn't bother the big seller about this,he claimed they did, so after fixing all my listing I went on and looked at listing by some of the chinese, in one listers ads I found three items listed exactly the same, so I put them all in my watch list and called ebay back, they said that yes all the items violated their rules and they would remove them, it's been a week and all the listings are still active, they don't care about the little seller anymore, they figure they can get as much money from a couple of the big seller then a whole bunch of little guys, it's becoming like the flea markets, they always start off with good stuff, then the mexicans and asians take over and sell nothing but junk,I wish there was some way to make ebay play fair but no one seems to care.

Maybe you should use more periods.

grammar police!

I wouldn't expect the grammar police to be located here! I can do proper writing when I have too, but it's just like my sloppy handwriting, it's too much trouble, beside when I'm mad all that goes out the window!

Jawol! The grammar Nazi is happy. But cmon man, a paragraph long run on sentence is impossible to read. Ebay can be tricky for a low volume seller. I list a few things from time to time and I get killed with fees. Sounds like you tried to bend the rules and got busted, but the big volume sellers get away with it. I suggest you list it as one lot.....one at a time small sales will kill you with shipping and sales fees. Good luck.

Punctuation is your friend.

That was painful.

You may not understand it when you write it. So here is an example for you to illustrate the misery of a massive run on sentence.

In order to avoid HELL and become a Christian right now all you have to do is get down on your knees and bow your head and close your eyes and pray this prayer:
"Dear God first and foremost I thank you that the events of my sin-coated life up to this point have led me to this website which You have commanded Your evangelist to post so that I might find the One True TRUTH which is Salvation from my sick sick unrighteousness by being washed in the blood of the Lamb of God which takes away the sins of the world and I plead with you by the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ not to send me to the home I so rightfully deserve which of course is the everlasting fiery vat of HELL but instead to bundle me up in the arms of sweet sweet Jesus so that I may find peace with You Father through faith in the supreme sacrifice of Your Only Begotten Son unlike the masses of sinners who are blazing toward HELL this very minute because they choose through their lust and homosexuality and abortions to believe a lie!!! instead of the Truth which your holy evangelist who night and day concerns himself only with the salvation of our precious precious souls and who will never give up until the last pornography-spewing homosexual pedophile is safe in the arms of Your Only Begotten Son Jesus where he belongs has posted on this web site according to Your Word which is the same Holy Word delivered to the world as that Word given through Abraham and Issac and Jacob and of course all the writers of the 1611 A.D. edition of the King James version of the Holy Bible which clearly states that we are all as an unclean thing and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags and we all do fade as a leaf and our iniquities like the wind have taken us away and there is none that call upon Your name or that stir up themselves to take hold of You for You have hid Your face from us and have consumed us because of our iniquities (Isaiah 64:6,7) and Lord we who believe the truth of this web site and of Your Word know that the rags referred to in the Isaiah passage are commonly believed to be menstrual rags and that is the best we can do as wanton sinners who prowl this earth looking to satisfy our lusts of the flesh like Mother Teresa who is sizzling in the fiery HELL right now as she was not a worshipper of Jesus Christ but instead she was a worshipper of the Great Whore of Babylon which is also known by a less sinister name which of course is the Roman Catholic Church (Revelation 17:1-10) but I thank You Lord that I don't have to go to HELL like Mother Teresa who clearly knew all along that the most effective way to get her wish which was to swim in the LAKE OF FIRE with Satan and to feel the worms eating her flesh along with the rest of the Romanists who of course are busy right now squirming in their vats of lava-grease like strippers in a ******** nightclub was to reject Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior by rejecting Your message which is one and the same with the message of this web site which is from You which is clear and the same can be said for all those so-called Christians who reject You in favor of the Romanist system which is based not upon Your Word but upon their fallible "reason" which as any True Christian knows that so-called "reason" is the tool of the Antichrist which he loves to loan to the False Profit to deceive the feeble-minded into taking medication which will only make them stop believing that their thoughts and actions are inspired by the Lord God Jehovah (Isaiah 29:10) and to instead falsely believe in their cause of promoting the homosexual agenda and of promoting the use of pornographic images to incite masturbation and of promoting the killing of innocent babies for the titillation of feminists and satanists who will not be nearly as titillated when Jesus Christ sits at the right hand of God the Father and sees that their names are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life before he boots their smart behinds down into the greased slide that empties into HELL but to a much hotter HELL than the others because they are truly agents of Satan and will sup with him on unrepentant bile in the belly of the beast at the bottom of the lowest lava pit in the SEVENTH HELL. Amen."
