Re: First timer - Ainsworth Four Score

Re: Auction additional costs ...

ebay will auto-renew the ad, only if you click that button in the first place, otherwise they simply send you an email saying what a good idea it would be to re list it.

Re: Bell-Fruit Manufacturing Co. bandits

Interesting how people's attention span has changed over the years and how it shows up in the slot world. Bell Fruit are proud of the fact that they introduce a new game EVERY 4 WEEKS!

It's not gambling... honestly!
