4. Thanks for the link.

[img][/img] I start my day by watching World News Now. [img][/img]
Yesterday, I was able to pull a story they talked about from youtube.

5. I once needed to replace a rear-view mirror...

and while looking through eBay offerings noticed that one seller's photo revealed his penis in the mirror. I suspect that was intentional

6. Oh noes.

I hope you did some kind of alert on the [img][/img] jerk.
A surprise like that can send you away from ebay forever.

14. I did indeed

I can't remember what eBay did about it, though I'm pretty sure they pulled the listing.

7. I think that this was an accident

but "reflection porn" is common on ebay.

9. They usually take it down fast

but sometimes it's so subtle that they don't catch it until someone reports it.

10. The article says

she didn't realize it.

I say bullshit.

I've sold enough items on ebay to know that sellers have multiple opportunities to view their listings before they're posted. Including the photos.

Not only that, but whenever I've sold something I take multiple photos (different angles, flash/no flash, etc) and choose one from my own files after examining all of them to make sure I get the best one.

Her image in the mirror is pretty obvious. More obvious than the naked guy in the teapot or whatever he was selling.

11. I do need to sell a few things.

I haven't taken the time to look at ebay as an option.
My two moving sales were a disappointment.

I'm about ready to tackle unpacking the next round of boxes. I honestly don't want to keep new items (some with the tags still attached) that I know I'll never use.


I understand the necessity of taking the best photos possible.



I am surprised that she felt the desire be taking a photo of her dress while
she was only half clothed. [img][/img]

15. That wasn't my plan.

I guess it just comes naturally to me. [img][/img]


[img][/img]
I have been awake since a little after 3 AM.
I was watching the news when this story came on.
[img][/img] The thought crossed my mind that my friends in The Lounge might benefit from this thread.
Thus my post.

16. More about: Reflective Photography ~ ~ ~

[IMG][/IMG]
This lovely photo was taken while visiting the Florida Keys.
I was in south Florida for most of 2006.

The turtles were my target for this photo opportunity.
I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this one of turtles, my old college lover
(28 years between goodbye and hello again) and yours truly ~ In The Wind.

The Turtle Hospital is a must see if you have a chance to visit Marathon Key.

17. This has been going on since the early days of eBay -- "Teapot Man" was one of the earliest memes.

.
.
.
This was intentional, as the poster kept posting and posting and posting it until eBay finally
caught on and stated deleting it quickly each time it showed up. The original (and most copies
nowadays) did NOT have the censorship bar.
.

"Teapot Man" was famous probably in the early-to-mid-90's.

18. Many thanks, MFM. I_T_W did not own a computer in the '90's.
