This thread is not unwelcoming of new posters. This thread is unwelcoming of thin-skinned noobs who want to walk into the room and dominate the conversation. Your machine gun posts and minor pissing contests with some of the regulars is a distraction and a waste of my time because I have to scroll through it.
Helpful hint: There are people here who have made a living on ebay for years, know far more about this than you do, and only post every few weeks. RMPL.
