count me among the confusion at the thread shitting. I understand the stuff he is selling isn't standard SF fare, but he doesn't appear to be breaking any rules, and if it sells it sells, if it doesn't it doesn't, but such blatent thread shitting never (should) go on
I doubt it. Anyone with some kind of acumen would keep this job-lot and sell it at a high profile auction. They also wouldn't be selling at such a discount when such provenance is available. On the other hand it may simply be a customer trying to cash in on current profile.
