Of course there needs to be profit to continue the business. But that is within decency - buying something and selling it for more than brought without giving a service or anythuing whatsoever - just sitting on his arse and organising, which a turkey could do, is not right.

Haha; I said what you were doing was ok; I said what he is doing above is wrong. That being of course; what Rusbo is doing. Of course there's nothing wrong with selling stuff Its useful.

Your quote said what I was doing was wrong. Look most people are like me on Ebay. They do a service at selling used parts at discounted rates. It is good and Ebay is great for that.

eBay is useful for that.

I really can't agree with Rusbo though... It must be possible for eBay to squeeze out that sort of useage.

Gian, you have a horrible attitude no matter how stupid LK is, he has his own opinions. I got in trouble for calling someone dum dum(In a kidding way) and Gian can call LK what he wants, that seems a little messed up.

Jack, go read your own posts and stop trying to interfere with something that has been resolved.
