Here's a CLASSIC example of what I'm talking about....

http://cgi.ca.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=488488602

First the guy says the OM-PC is "1,000 times better than an OM10"
because it has Program Mode and ESP.  Okay, maybe he's
exaggerating a wee bit, but I'll give him that one.

Then, in the very *next* sentance he says that program mode is
*busted* so you can only use it in auto mode!  Hmmm...  that kinda
makes me think maybe it's NOT "1,000 times better" than an OM10!

Then, in the *next* sentance, he describes it as being "in excellent
condition!"  Yeah, right!!!!

Be CAREFUL out there people!  Some e-Bay sellers can talk out of
both sides of their mouth AND blow smoke out their...  uhhh... ears all
at the same time!!!

Regards,

Chris

P.S.  Let's have a contest....  the person who comes up with the
STOOPIDEST e-Bay auction description (Olympus items only!) gets a
free ride in Tom's 'vette!  (Travel to/from Tom's place, accommodation,
taxes, gratuities, and everything-but-the-ride are extra...  some
restrictions apply!)  <G>
