You mean like Fracker did with one of my auctions? Dearie me, that
wasn't clever.

Quite. It only activates the autofill if you choose to accept eBay's
invite and key in the reg number. It says it'll save you time by doing
it all for you, but what it actually does is provide a woefully
inadequate description.

A lot of people merely see the fields filling up, and then move onto the
next stage. Big mistake.

(This posting is for the education of Fracker and Stevenson: see? It's
educational, is this thread.)

There are many things that exist only in the recesses of what remains of
TOG's mind.

Oh, Fracker decided to email a rather dimwitted buyer of one of my
things and point to the posting on this forum where I described him as
dimwitted.

(I use the Fracker name because Spacker and Fran's attitudes are one and
