    Just as guns don't kill people... people do. Digital photographs don't lie... people do. And analogue can be quite convincing to the contrary of truth but it's more difficult requiring more complex skills and these processes are more time-consuming. So... eBay liars use PS and simpler/easier digital tools to deceive.

    The problem with society today is the liars/cheaters/sociopaths are so good at deception, probably because they have no conscience what-so-ever and are driven by selfishness and greed, that we can no longer tell the bad guys/gals from the good.

    The above stated... this is why I only buy from or sell to people on the forums on which I'm known. Forums are a community in which at least some trust is achieved and maintained. If I or anyone else cheats someone on this forum then most will learn of it one way or another. I like that.

    That stated... God help the noobs. I ask that we ALL PM noobs in the case of a possible screwing if we see an obvious one. Try to be politically correct though. Yes, maybe this is hypocritical coming from me because I often say WAY too much in a far too accusing way and in open forum. Please blame my brain damage and alcohol consumption and medications. I'm trying to improve... please forgive the sidetrack.

    To me it's more about the clueless who buy cameras, I don't use ebay.

    And I'm not kidding, this was his actual and only response to me:

    " DO NOT JUDGE.LEST THU BE JUDGED."


    How do some people get positive feedback?
    EBAY makes it difficult to leave negative feedback

    "Lens is clean. What look like imperfections are due to reflections." Funny, some of that looks like dust to me.
