1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I cannot believe that someone has actually bid on that. I think I still have an old calendar from 2001 somewhere around here; must be worth a fortune!

    Misleading ad. September 11 is the best when purchased by date, not the expiration date. I have eaten many things well after the best when purchased by date without ill effects.

    You must be joking!
    Maybe you are the misleading ad, sir!

    When you say "ill effects" are you referring to "terrorist attacks"? [​IMG]

    Will you disclose the reserve price?

    15 American dollars. I think we all know I expect to get several thousand times that, though.

    My guess is that it has to do with the reference to 9-11. eBay tends to get antsy about auctions related to 9-11 and their policy is usually cancel now, think later.

    But it was such a patriotic auction... it had flags and red white and blue stuff and everything. I guess they just hate our freedom.

    Ken, was that actually your auction?

    Perhaps there is rule against selling rotten or expired food then.

    edit: Though now I remember the 10 year old grilled cheese with the virgin mary that sold for $28K.

    Yeah: mine, J.

    Bogus. Pulled down because it was considered 'food.' Who the hell considers horseradish food, regradless of expiration date? I always thought it was purely decorative.

    Somebody probably reported it. I got a couple hate messages from people who obviously hate America, possibly bin Laden himself under the pseudonym "bigDaddy."

    I could probably convince them it isn't food, right? Seems like a lot of work, though.

    Thanks ya'll!

    If you make trouble, they'll probably just kick you off and eat your soul via Paypal.

    I suppose this means that the terrorists have already won.
