	Hi.  Charlie here.  I'm a long time on and off lurker.  This comes up
now and again and I never hear an adequate response to it.  It seems
many of the members (Good people all!) seem to have an egalitarian
streak which leads them to think such notices are shabby.  If you're
selling them on eBay chances are good we want to know about it.  Over
in the mystery newsgroup they don't seem to mind as long it keeps to a
minimum (a link to your "all auctions from this seller" instead of
each individual posting.  )  -but I ain't the sheriff of this town, so
what I say certainly doesn't go.  Just an opinion.
