Let The Seller Beware

I am just so something about this article in the Fishwrap. People are making small piles of cash buying items on eBay advertised by illiterate boobs— then turning around and selling them with a properly composed advertisement.

Here's the paragraph that made me laugh hysterically:

Jim Griffith, whose official title at eBay is dean of eBay education, teaches 40 to 50 seminars a year around the country. Although the auction house flags common misspellings online, Mr. Griffith said, the most common question he gets is, "When will eBay get a spell checker?" His answer? "You go to a store called a bookstore, and you buy something called a dictionary."

Hmmm... I wonder if I can pick up a good dicsionary on eBay for a steal...
