 Store holds so many good memories…in fact, some of us still have our names written on the wall. I am sad to see it go, but I am so happy for you and your new adventure. I am so proud of you, and I know you will be great!

I wish I could take (most) of the name wall with me.I’ve actually gazed upon it recently, thinking…..

I was supposed to call the ah, nice, landlord today if I wanted to change my mind. I haven’t called so far…..

I’m excited, but a bit uptight, the immediate Money Thing looks bad, but then again, it has looked bad since 1980….

I will be happy to get into my fulltime act. For the past couple of weeks, I’ve spent four hours at the store, four hours at the house per day. That has been frustrating, especially when I locked up my computer tonight (silly me, filled my hard-drive)(again)(it’s a little hard-drive)

we’ll see…..the quality of the REST of my life has taken a quantum leap for the better…it’s too weird, being the only guy left in an Icon….

I’m keeping it here mostly because it’s one of the last things that Nancy and I did “together”. She made the nice raindrop, I stuck stickers and tape all over it….

Keyword Spamming at eBay (Grouch busted)

Dear saintsteven,

Recently we became aware that your eBay registered account was involved
in the following activity:

Keyword Spamming,

which is not permitted at eBay.

Vintage Bandana-Hawg Wild non-Harley
Item #320714807

“Keywords designed to snag smart-searchers: [Grateful Dead Beatles Chuck Berry Keith Richards Disneyland Nude Photo of Me In a Trout Stream Mark Mcgwire Bong Pantyhose Wizard Of Oz Volkswagon 24K Gold Grocery Coupons Cow Chicken Pig Snowdome Packard Lone Ranger Too Much Coffee biker babe butterfly].” is the keyword phrase.

Key word spamming is the practice of adding words, including brand
names, which are not directly related to the item you are selling or which
are included for the primary purpose of attracting or diverting bidders
to a listing which is not permitted.

Key word spamming is not only a manipulation of our search engines, but
is also unfair to members who may be searching for a specific item and
receive search engine results of listings which are not selling the
item. Users often are confused and frustrated by such
tactics. Certain uses of brand names may also constitute trademark
infringement and could expose sellers to legal liability.

Methods of Key Word Spamming include, but are not limited to:

1. Extra Brand Names in Title or Item Description
2. Not Brand X, Not Brand Y
3. Improper Trademark Usage
4. Lists of “Key” Words
5. Hidden Text (White on white text, or hidden text in HTML Code)
6. Drop Down Boxes

Although your auction(s)are inconsistent with our listing guidelines,
we will allow your current running auctions to complete their course and
end on their own.

Please view our Listing Policies page for further details on this and
other guidelines on listing your items:…-list.html

For more information on why eBay has ended an auction, please visit:…ction.html

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please be aware future incidents of this nature can
lead to the suspension of your account. We value you as a member of our
community and wish to continue this relationship, so we must ask you to
refrain from any violations of the Listing Policies or
User Agreement in the future.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may
have on our existing listing policies.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
