    I accept your offer to sell me your Visor Keyboard for $1.00. Please email me for my physical address. I can pay you your $1.00 either by Paypal or by sending you a check or cash. What a great deal!!!

    Thanks.

    P.S. If you really didn't mean that you were selling your Visor Keyboard for $1.00, and really meant that you were auctioning your keyboard, and that the current price was $1.00, then perhaps you should have written "For Auction:" and advertised "FA:".

    My point was that when you are auctioning an item and you start the bidding at $1.00, the price is not $1.00 and it is disingenuous to say you are selling it for $1.00... because you are not.

    It has nothing to do with this board specifically, but with usenet and discussion boards in general. If you are auctioning something, then say so... but don't advertise you are "selling" it for $1.00 - because you are not.

    (as far as "codes" - FA is For Auction just like FS is For Sale, just like you used in your message heading).

    Brianp,

    I think you're wasting your breath. I think he knew all that and set up the too-good-to-be-true posting on purpose.

    I've tried in vain to purchase a Stowaway keyboard on Ebay for a lower price than retail. Don't waste your time. The auction quickly rises to $65-75 dollars in no time. Then of course you have to pay for shipping. Then of course you have to wait a frikkin' week to get it. Then of course it's probably used. Just go buy a new one and you won't have to hassle with anything.

    Its just not too ethical. Other items for auction said they were for auction or the link said e-bay.

    Someone bid like a thousand then i'll bid two thousand just for that guy being an *** about his little "one dollar keyboard"

    He'll never be able to sell it htat way, and if ebay says anything, i'll say he mislead me which is true. just send ebay a link to his post!!!

    You can find the article here by going to CNet and searching on "ebay".

    Yaz...shut the hell up please. Stop whining.

    If you don't want to buy his keyboard then don't bid on it. Whether it was a mistake on his part or not, so what? I read this post and I even went to his ebay auction page. I saw that the price would be more than I wanted to pay so I left.

    I spent about 5 minutes of my time.

    I'm not whining, I'm pointing out the facts. That 5 minutes could have been spent on Etrade making money by buying/selling stocks. in 5 minutes you could double your money.

    No, you're pointing out your biased views of the facts, obviously. Nowhere does CNet claim that one shouldn't bid on eBay because prices are always higher than retail. They merely caution against getting caught up in auction hype and bidding more than you should. Also, I'm sure the guy who just bought my Visor Deluxe and extras on eBay paid a couple hundred dollars less than retail for it.
