1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    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.

    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!
