I will sometimes bring an error to a seller's attention. Most are  
appreciative and respond positively.  The ones I really would like to  respond 
to and 
don't are the ones that have a rare Olympus OM 10 kit for sale  with a starting 
bid of $195.  The kit will typically include the camera,  50mm f1.8 lens, an 
off brand flash and a package of lens tissue.  Most  assure you that everything 
works great, however it will need new batteries  because the old ones are

How did you test the meter?
What kind of drugs are you taking or perhaps not taking, that have been  
prescribed for you?
Do you know how to do a completed auction search on eBay to help determine

And the list goes on, however I never contact them.  Just figure the  market 
place will tell them what they need to know and that it isn't my day to  be in 
charge of helping them figure it out.
