[rollei_list] Re: : Camera show decline

At a show, I actually have a chance to buy the item.  I have NEVER been
successful on Ebay -- always falling to some %$#@@ sniper who bids me up
$.25, one minute before closing.  If I need something, Ebay is too
chancy.  It goes to the %$#@ who have the sniping software.  Real people
don't have the time to futz around all day.

That's my experience
