[CQ-Contest] Dealing with eBay

In case there was any doubt, I reported all 3 devices 
through eBay's online system for doing just that.  It 
was a bit convoluted to get to, but I found it.  

I clicked "Help" in their top menu, then "Contact Us" 
in their left menu, then "Report a listing violation", 
then "Prohibited (banned) items", then "Electronics".  
Next I clicked the "Email" link under "Contact 
Support:" at which point I had to log in and was then 
presented with a form in which to enter the 
questionable item numbers.

Perhaps emailing the numbers to some address would 
perform the same function, but if there's an automated 
system in place, I prefer to use it!  (I guess that's 
the webmaster in me ;-) )

Anyway, I got some kind of automated reply saying 
they'd look into it.  We shall see.

PeoplePC:  It's for people. And it's just smart.
