I find the negative comments about new ebay members rather offensive.We all have to start somewhere.I have found people who are new to ebay quite often have some nice items for sale.Most are people who are selling something they know little to nothing about.But I always feel it is up to the bidder to feel comfortable with an item before placing a bid.Give the new folks the benefit of the doubt or at least gather as much information as you can before you bid.
