OK, nice stuff, really cute, but this isn't the place to sell it, OK?
In case that wasn't a blatant commercial post and you were just posting so
you could get some feedback on your websight, I'll help you with that too.
you open up to a page that tells absolutely nothing about you, just shows
some tiny pictures with no detail of the little cutesy items you sell thru
pay pal. and if i want 50 of them I have no way of getting ahold of you to
negotiate, and if I pay by pay Pal, I have no way oc contacting you if the
deal goes sour, or is that your intent? You get my money thru PayPal, and I
get nothing, no info about you, where you are or what your phone number is.
Your major concern is right there, the MONEY, get it and so what. Are you a
crook? are you in China? Singapore? Viet Nam? Canada? where are you and
how much is the shipping? I need 50 for corproate gifts for Butterflys,Inc,
love your work but can't get in touch with you. Oh well,
Just in case you wondered, and sell it elsewhere, everybody here already
makes that stuff, and more!
Sure you're right, but Spammers almost never read any responses on an NG
anyway. They usually use a program that simply cross posts all over the
place. Repeat after me.... "There's No Place Like Home..... There's No Place
Like Home...... "
That's why I pick and chose which spammers I comment to! I have a pretty
good "response rate" I think, if I go back and read 'em, but the darndest
thing happens, they don't hang around and post anything useful either. Like
what little tricks they use to produce the stuff they sell( get it made in
China), or where to get the glass to repair some of those cute little
"slider bombers",China ,( you know, what the cutesys do when the suction cup
lets go on the sliding door, bombs yer toes!)
Wish they would hang around and become productive members of the group,
maybe they could hang out and discuss the pros and cons of plaster in a
cement formula, er something useful.
Got carried away there, its Monday....
Oddly enough, my wife got three of these five or six years ago, and they've been
on our patio door (the sliding part) ever since. I suspect the glass has flowed
them, anchoring them in place, since I can't imagine how those cheesy little
cups can still be holding on.
I thought it was spam, too. I don't think it was just the untargeted stuff,
didn't show up in any other groups that I noticed....
To keep the stupid suction cups in place, just add a dot of superglue.
I kid you not. I do a lot of really small stuff (yes, grains of sand
CAN be successfully foiled and soldered in place) and asked my first
instructor what to do about it....she suggested superglue to keep the
cup in place. It works and, if you want to move it, you just buy a
new cup and razor blade the old one off the window, no problems.
