I reckon 12 unhappy customers in the last 6 months is not "very good",
although not awful either.

Possibly but reading the comments and follow ups it does look like a lot of
the buyers who negged did not read descriptions properly, plus he responds
calmly and factually to each neg with a realistic explanation. Over 300
feedbacks without a neg now - that would be good enough for me, I'd buy from
him.

Indeed, I expect I would too. I was only making a throw away
observation as to what constitutes very good feedback. Now yours I
would describe that way :)
