The scourge of Ebay

EBay. Great site, frequented by morons. Take the auction I've got running - a pair of headphones, B&O.

Turns out there's a lot of fakes being sold. So I put on the auction "100 per cent authentic." It's not an opinion, it's a statement of fact.

One bright spark asks how I know they are authentic. He has issues with the word 'authentic', says it's different to 'genuine.' Well sir, here's the dictionary definition, Collins English Gem:

Authen'tic a. Trustworthy, real, genuine, true ... etc

Note the word genuine there? Yup, that's your clue. Perhaps you'd be better off spending your hard earned on something you really need.

Like a Speak and Spell. I'm sure you'd find one of them on eBay.
