    Yes she seems very nice, but she does say 'brilliant' rather a lot. Kind of loses its impact if she can't describe something as 'shite' occasionally.

    Cars that park themselves FFS, if you can't park a car then why are you driving it in the first place. I suppose you could do some texting while it gets on with it.

    I'd rather have a car that can wash itself, I'd pay good money for that.

    Some people are incapable of parking a car. My brother's ex-wife bought a Land Rover Discovery, and within two years it was so bashed about, it looked like a Beirut taxi.

    If they wanted to give something back, they could donate to a charity, instead that get paid to be a spokes person for a charity, getting paid to beg money from poor people. A very few stars have come forward to say they donít want to share their political views, because they realize no one really wants to hear it. And damn if they arenít criticized for not picking a side! ďThey must surely be racist if they donít want to talk about it?Ē

    Ebay sellers that cant answer the simplest of questions. I asked if some coins were aluminium coloured or brass looking coins. I needed to double check about the hue of the photograph.

    The reply I got was " I wouldnt know how to tell sorry" That was it...no offer to expand on the issue or try and help further. I mean who cant tell the difference between a silver colour and brass? I didnt push it any further as I wonder who the hell I am dealing with

    Ive had this quite a few times over the years.. very simple questions and they are unable to answer. I dont know if they are being pissy with me, stupid or just bone idle.

    Its sods law that these people have the hi fi unit Im interested in. I wait ages to see stuff and then find its being sold by an idiot aaaaargh
    As a point, before I buy anything expensive from eBay, I always ask the seller a simple question. I am amazed at the number who simply do not respond. Apparently they arenít really interested in selling their item? Or are so socially inept they donít know how? As with your brass or silver question, that guy was socially afflicted.

    Dodgy Seller Rule no 1... never answer a question with an affirmative or a negative reply.

    There is a chap somewhere in England who regularly posts eBay ads about hand-made passive preamps. He usually states right in the ad that he can make them to customer’s specifications. I asked him whether he could build me a passive preamp with 5 inputs, tape loop and a stepped attenuator and how much would it be... and got no response at all.

    I wonder how he’s still in business...
