it always kind of gripes me when I see info from my web site copied word for word to enhance somebody's ebay listing to try to get more money for what ever they are selling. On the other hand, the guy listing it called me a professional collector.

Well, I don't have time to worry about it, back to the shop trying to finish up two more tonight so I can start on more tomorrow.

Jump in and bid, I think the price is pretty high for what it is so I'm not a bidder but somebody might get a smoking deal and it might turn out to be a good one. Never know.

Several times I have seen photos from my web site used to show "What this will look like after you clean it up," or something similar with the one they are selling missing all sorts of parts or just a piece of crap to begin with.

We sort that deal up pretty quickly.

WHOOOOFFFF!!! That didn't take long. Methinks he took offense to my note that said "Please ask for permission before taking direct quotes from my web site."

Well, I dunno how to delete this so guess it's here to stay. Didn't mean to make anybody mad.

Back to the shop.

How dare you object to your copyrighted material being hijacked. What nerve!

I've heard of a lawyer named Selden that can clear this up?

I'm not related to them, but they might help:
Dewey, Cheatem, & Howe.

The Howe in that is my niece. Prosecuting attorney for Pierce County, Washington. This is her side job. =)

Stan,
And the Dewey is my niece, who passed the bar first time out. Now she does tax attorney work (at least last I knew!) .
Now the real funny thing is, I didn't even think of your last name when I posted that!!
Sometimes I'm my own worst enemy!

I actually knew an attorney named Cheatem. Always thought it must have been a drawback in that profession.

There was always this guy: Judge Frank S. Cheatham, Jr. It must have been scary to have been called to the Cheatham court!
