Niel did not actually say much at all, given that absolutely anyone can take
a home test, unsupervised, with the returned results being marked by Mensa
in good faith. Anyone who wanted would then be able to make a claim they
have an IQ of 155 (tested by Mensa), thus, in and of itself, such a claim
commands no respect and is barely worth of mention.

If it bothers you that much it was a supervised test.

It is actually an unpaid item, not a non paying bidder now. The
difference may appear trivial but it more correctly describes what it
is trying to achieve.

Nothing, so long as they have an obligation to pay. However, once
the contract is cancelled using the DSR's they no longer have any
contract or obligation to pay so there is no unpaid item and they
cannot be non payers by eBays rules - simple.

Ay maybe that's why Ebay changed the terminology recently. It used to be
known as a non-paying bidder report and strike but now it is called an
'Unpaid Item Process and strike' - which therefore makes it all legitmate
then I take it & Marcus will deservedly get an unpaid item strike against
his Ebay ID?

It does not bother myself at all. You, Niel, made an incomplete and
unsupported statement and it was responded to, the content of which stands
based on your original statement. Indeed, you, Niel, have just made another
incomplete and unsupported statement, indicating that it is yourself that is
bothered, and again, your claim of a supervised test, in and of itself,
commands no respect and is barely worthy of mention.
