    you got it! I do this all the time from the links on this thread.

    I usually let them know it is NOT industrial, NOT rare, NOT a singer, and my favorite so far.. NOT a sewing machine!

    I have only have one rude jerk reply mean. Most reply sheepish and then do nothing about the ad...

    The jerk was an ad where there were four photos, but only one where you can just make out the machine itself through the undercarriage of the cabinet (why do they do that?) I asked "So, any chance of seeing a picture of the machine you are selling, as well as the cabinet and irons?" His reply was "Hey A$$!@#, you get what you get, deal with it."

    For $250...

    My reply was "Charming"

    Ya know, when I was in sales (before the earth cooled) we had a phrase " Sales is the art of telling someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip..."

    I just admire you having the kahunas to contact those crazy CL sellers and trying to educate them a little bit!
