Hi Pip, I appreciate what you are saying I know any question is 'open' for discussion. Though none profess to be experts, a lot do tend to specialize in certain areas, so I think if you ask a question about a certain type of glass, these are normally where you get the answer. (Whitefriars is my chosen subject) and always try to help :pb:
The 'frustration' bit stems from the fact that having made the effort to photograph and list the item carefully and correctly to the best of my knowledge, started it at a low price, took time to pack it carefully and safely, juggled start and end times to coincide with other commitments. 3 trips to the post office because we all know most always pay immediately but there is always one who pays after 2 days and 1 who waits 4 or 5 (not this buyer by the way) :ac1:
Then to be 'told' in no uncertain terms that it's a 'fake' piece made in the far East and how long I have owned it because it's nothing like the other 30 pieces in my collection and then of course the bit at the end that mentions a full refund and of course the dreaded 'threat' of a negative feedback. We are all different some would bite the bullet, some ignore it and hope it goes away, we all know ebay is stacked up against the sellers even the genuine ones, the negative feedback is only a click away (justified or not)
Sorry if I appeared to be telling anyone to mind there own business, which was never my intention.
Another bad habit I tend to go on and on and on........... :sun:
