Well I've had two messages appear in my normal email today hours
before they appeared in "my messages" today.
I replied to the first by email rather than an eBay message.

I don't normally do that, but this one needed a timely reply.

"Give us a chance to reply - some of us make work long hours you know"

Has it occurred to you that the seller thought the most vital and important
thing was a full refund and that they too might work long hours? That they
might perhaps have done the immediate action to resolve the issue rather
than blathering?

How do you know they knew that before you won the widget?

You're now an even better BBL candidiate.

My comment was aimed at someone calling me names because I hadn't got
round to replying yet.

You won't get far here suggesting a seller is actually wrong or a crook,
its always the buyers fault on this group.

This is a "pat each other on the back because we are great sellers"
group. Anyone who dares to neg a seller now gets abuse and asked for
their id so they can get put on a BBL, since sellers can no longer use
the "if you neg me, I will neg you back" extortion that some buyers fell
for.

At least when spacker was posting, there was something to read.
