My favorite search words are the manufacturers name; i.e., if I'm looking for Gipiemme, I search for Gipiemme, if I'm looking for Modolo, I'll search for Modolo. It's a real drag and a waste of my time getting dozens of hits on a search and only half have anything to do with what I want. Give the buyers enough credit to search for what they have in mind. No, I've never turned anyone in to ebay, nor have I mourned for anyone who got their auction dropped for spamming.
