Possibly that she/he is trying to get info or details on things from a wide variety of sources at any one time and doesn't then remember who they have already contacted.

Not sure, but perhaps making a friendly contact leads to "sigh, I can't get these cleaned... would you like to buy them...?" kind of contact, but obviously it would be outside of ebay and they would never be shipped.


Or of course, Shellie is just another one in a long, ever-growing line of mentalists.  :?

More like functionally psychotic.  :?

Ah, then she's "mental" (to employ '80s valley girl parlance) rather than a "mentalist". I thought ashmire was implying there was some sort of mind-reading involved... I was confused.

Ashmire, that sounds reasonable.    The only other contact I've had with her was as Lisa's Stuff.  I was an ebay newbie and she wanted me to revise a copy of Beastmaker Mountain that I started at, I think,  $9.99 to have a BIN of $15.00 and let her know when I changed it.    She said she would buy it right away.   Thanks to the people at the Acaeum I knew not to do it.

For a definition of mentalist, check out the TV episode of Alan Partridge where he ends up held hostage...

I prefer the dictionary :).

I've never heard of Alan Partridge, but I'll look him up. I watch a good amount of BBC America (where else can you find Star Trek these days..:), and Kitchen Nightmares cracks me up), but haven't come across that one yet.

It's most likely not going to be in there, as it's more a term used than defined (if that makes sense..??)

Treat yourself to some Alan, its a niche humour, but I find it uncomfortably funny... Along with Brass Eye, possibly one the finest docu-news-comedies ever!!  :lol:

Will do, sounds funny.

Actually "mentalist" is in the dictionary, but none of the definitions match your usage, which was why I was confoosled.

Watched it; somewhat amusing, probably would be funnier if I were more familiar with him... Now I get the reference, anyway.

True enough, it's a 5min clip from a 30 min show in a however many series..

But as said, its humour of an acquired taste perhaps   :lol:

I like the neutral feedback someone left

eBay Feedback Profile for brenscollectables

Was turned off by finding a dead fly in the box and that the dice smelled

Damn.

I evidently bid on something of his/hers/its and won it recently, without realizing it was this seller (yes, I had read this thread..duh).

Well, it only cost me a few bucks, and maybe it'll turn out okay. (S)he seems to be on the "good feedback" upward swing, still.
