So whilst you have banged on about not revealing any personal details
you have just given everyone the seller's name and postcode.

That's *very* clever of you.

It was not wise to post anything here that gave any identifiable clue. You
did not need to in order to ask your question.

Which bit?

The seller's surname and postcode was given at 09:54 this morning.

The seller's ebay username has been know since the weekend.

Like I said, you gave all that info.

Only if you plan on being a complete idiot about it & exagerate the initial
complaint with lies to garner sympathy Michael did. Any genuine and rational
person asking the group's advice on something should have no fear of giving
information on the item being asked about. Indeed it was Michael's refusal
to disclose the item in question and his self righteous ranting that raised
most people's suspicions that all was not as he claimed it was & made him
resort to hurling personal insults at the very people whose advice he asked
for.
