Sorry if it sounds like a dumb question...I've just come over here from the Ebay discussion boards. That's the only other place I've really posted on message boards. I posted a few things on another board here, and was wondering if I was "reaching my limit"...Over there, you only get 10 posts a day if you have limited feedback. Just one of the MANY things I abhor about Ebay these days.
So, I'm new. Tell me about this site. What kinds of things do you guys discuss here? I am going to need a new place to yak online, since I've left Ebay. I'm not one of those who visits multiple sites, I don't have the time or patience to do the password/login crap for all kinds of different sites. Can one just pop in and make a post about anything? What are the rules?
Just curious...

I think you can post as much as you like Linda. But I am not sure. I am also pretty new to the site. I used to post on Ebay, but I think the people there were all crazy. I disliked their forums, I hated paypal and their hidden charges. Ebay was like Orwell's Big Brother, very oppressive.

What has led you to assume people here are not crazy, Phil?

Oh, Ebay is HORRIBLE these days! I've been there since 1999, so I remember when it was a great place to be...you could sell your little stuff, and buy some new stuff, and have a nice discussion on the boards. Now it's gone all 'corporate', and it just sucks!
And what is UP with paypal!? That company is a "La Brea Tar Pit" of a financial company, yet it goes unchallenged here in the US! The Australians shot them down over forced paypal, why can't they be stopped here?

I think people here are eccentric, with a hint of loopiness, a pinch of insanity and a handful of crazy powder sprinkled in for good luck.

On the other hand Ebay bloggers were criminally insane, they would be kicked out of Rampton. They made Ed Gein look sane. complete radio rental and conkers bonkers.

As, people here can write coherent topical stories, most of the time! It would imply you all have some sort of awareness of the world, proving you are not psychotic. There might be many personality disorders floating around on this site, but I see very little rambling in stories. Apart from my own and possibly John Winters', who is obsessed with sweeteners.

Actually I will, add you to the list as well. Now I think about it I think you probably have posted on Ebay.

UK sellers are forced to use Paypal, like sellers in the U.S.

The Germans have also avoided the might of Paypal, and only 10 % of German sellers actually use it. I don't know how they did it but, kudos to them.


The beauty of Ebay ( for Ebay) is that the seller pays for listing their item. Then they pay commission to Ebay, once their item is sold. Then when you are forced to use, Ebay's company Paypal - So people can pay you for your item,they also take another commission out of that money too.


That's called being stung, left, right and centre.

Aaahhh! I don't know about the 'bloggers', but I know I wasn't insane when I posted...

Ah, but Phil, you must remember how much awareness of the world some of us gather through that tiny barred window set in our cell wall.

One thing Ebray IS good for is buying pure aspartame; this is required for certain recipies. Aspartame companies will not sell it to non food industry people.

But there are a few psychos on Ebray that sell it on the sly, sorta like crack.

I think I shut those psychos down with my attacks here thru the dimension of sardony.

I thought this was E-bay.

Explains the lack of bids, anybody want a pair of old mittens and a floor lamp?

Caught 5 year old brother dirnking drink laced with asparatame!

told him off.

then snuck some of the drink while he wasn't looking.

I'm going to be up all night

Walls have ears. Clocks have hands. Tables have legs. Combs have teeth. Chairs have arms. Watches have faces. Boys have six packs like grocery stores. Girls have hilights like BBC news. Old men use walkers for walking instead of eating them. Hail is apparently something that falls from the sky. And holy crap, there's a mouse beside my keyboard.

Yes, a little poison can be a stimulant.. sort of like acupuncture.

However, if you use a large sword instead of a small needle, it may not have a good effect.

Mittens are black in colour, actually lost one in in Calgary airport two days ago but selling as a lot, floor lamp has sawdust on it from woodworking in the basement.

Opening bid five pounds plus shipping.

Funny I lost a left hand red mitten in Calgary Airport last year.
Do you want the right hand, it's a size 44 wide fitting?

I'll trade you straight up.

With red mittens, even if you lose one, your exposed hand soon matches colour as it freezes.

My wife decided to keep the floor lamp and I just traded the spare mitten to Rusty.

You might want to try Winters for some aspertame though.
Careful though, in its frozen form it resembles snow, don't be duped.

I can prove aspartame is safe.

I say, "aspartame is dangerous."

I am a little green man, from a UFO.

You must be nuts to think I am correct.

So, eat plenty of it!

It's smart to put the possible cancer causing ingredients of a food/drink in microscopic print on the packaging.
