When I reported the list above Ebay said that three of the numbers were wrong.  Maybe they were listings already removed?

Were these ever re-released on DVD or is this yet another bright spark who has hit upon the idea of scanning games and magazines and selling them to the public:

I see he has quite a few DVDs and has sold a fair few as well.

I don't know which is more infuriating --- the stupid sellers who lie about the copyright or the stupid buyers who can't find the torrents.

and all three had 1 bid  ... if one of us would do something like that ...you know the last set sold for xxx amount....why not start the next one at xxx+5 :lol:

seeing these did bring back some fond memories of the Vic-20 and C64 though...and typing in all that machine code from magazines for games (hoping you didn't make a mistake somewhere).

oh...and Telengard!

Have browsed the Zzap! torrent. They are feckin horrific scans. But they do have all the cassette tapes with each edition too. Very bad quality scans though.

Does Ebay put a limit on how many items one can report in a given time period?

When I push the "Report this Item" button, the response I get is that the web page I want is not available.

However, if I am not signed into Ebay when I push the button, I get right to the reporting page.  When I sign in as part of the reporting process there is no problem.

Is it possible that Ebay is pissed at me for reporting too many items?

Ebay Australia mustn't care too much about copyright infringement. This guys auctions came in the discussion a couple of weeks ago and he has been reported by many I believe, but Ebay has done nothing about it.
