Nevermind FB.

Fleabay has changed its search term logic from "and" to "or." So for each search that I had set up for "Estes partnumber," I have gotten search results in my email for the past several days including every new item listed with the word "Estes." It also works that way when searching directly on the site, making the site now almost completely useless. Went through canceling searches this morning to avoid what is now effectively spam. It boggles the mind that the morons in charge of that joint could actually be soooo stooopid.

Searches now give you useless junk unless you use quotes .

I cancelled my ebay account over a year ago. They went to the trouble of merging with Paypal. Then stopped accepting Paypal after I went to the trouble of getting an account!

Back in college, I was in the bookstore with two friends that I drove to school with. Rob was checking out and there was a display of Gund stuffed animals and another display of Totes umbrellas. While Rob was paying, Mark grabbed a baby seal stuffy and an umbrella. He dropped the seal and began "clubbing" it with the umbrella, all the while making dying baby seal noises. It caught everyone by surprise, especially the elderly lady who was running the register. She immediately banned Mark for life, which didn't make a big difference because he flunked out the next semester.

I'm a little confused here. I've always used PayPal on eBay. I bought a vintage scanner off eBay two weeks ago and payed with PayPal.

They may have changed it back since I was on last. The problem I had was accepting payment with Paypal as a seller. I was just selling stuff out of my garage and they insisted I have a brick & mortar bank to accept funds. Later found out they were trying to get companies and compete with Amazon.
