    That's what I'm seeing too. Misrepresented product, product that never ships, zero tech support or customer support, multiple charges, shipping charges added after the fact - and the one they advertise - month+ long waits.

    That's happened with stuff I've bought on eBay before. They never admitted it was originating in china. They said "ships from California". It did, once it got to California from China. Complete crap that I ended up throwing away. eBay offers ZERO protection against this garbage. I bet if I go through some old notes, I can tell you the exact address they use in CA. Come to think of it, I bet the ebay link I sent you for those lights on ebay is doing the same thing. They say
    "shipping from Kansas" or wherever, but that's just to trick the buyer into thinking it's originating in the US. Pure bullshit.

    Yep, as I expected:
    Notice that they say "Item location is Walton, Kentucky" and then with minimal digging, you can see that they're "Based in China". Ebay is in on this crap.

    eBay was a great thing years ago. It's a dumping ground now. There are some valid uses, I think. Used, hard to find bike parts and similar. Other than that, I'm running out of reasons to use them.

    Still just rain here. I think the magic line runs just east of where you are. It's going to be mid-30s and raining here for the duration of this storm, I'd bet. Here in Raleigh anyway.
