    LOL I WILL read it all the way through, promise ! Just skipped there to see what format you were using.

    What's stopping you copying and pasting the email ? I'm missing something aren;t I ? :thinking:

    Yes. I get this:-

    I could print it, scan it and then put it in Photobucket, but it won't have any active links.
    Too late now and I'm busy tomorrow.

    LOL well that MUST be a mods or Admin thing. Way beyond this mere mortal.

    I'd hazard a guess though that it's exactly as it says !
    Knock the smilies and any unwated images off the original and the thing you are copying and pasting.
    I can see at least 17 of what the message says in your original message.

    Does that make sense ?

    Two things that struck me from your most helpful ebay tips thread:

    Q&A being "nasty" is an understatement. Folks need to be told NOT to post there unless they have a seperate posting ID (IMHO)

    International shipping using RM and P/P is a nonsense. In most cases sellers are not covered when they send by ISF or Airsure through RM and P/P.
    RM's policy needs to be thoroughly checked as in the majority of cases they don't guarantee a sig with ISF. This goes against P/P's policy as you know.
    A minefield and open to real abuse.

    WHy not just take a screenshot? and then crop certain areas into smaller screnshots if you want to point out something specific.

    You are right about the Q&A board, but that opens up more problems. "How do I register again" etc.
    International trades are a complete nightmare and that in itself is a full post.
    Have you used AD?

    Thanks Emma, but how? Can you give me more info/details.

    Use the print screen button on your keyboard, and paste it into an image editing program. If you don't have one, or "paint" isn't good enough, you could email it to me and I'll upload it and get you an imageshack link
