Re: El Reg hacks need to actually *look* at the modern fleabay

Today a phablet arrived here from a pro retailer, sold through eBay, and delivered from Amazon.

This is getting confusing. The ways ordinary folk can sell stuff are getting fewer and fewer. I know of five regular auctions locally which have stopped happening. The second-hand bookshops are vanishing too.

Some of the charity shops will take "good" stuff. But what makes something "good" is a rather high standard. If they don't want you, disposal costs money.

How much does an electrical safety certificate cost for an old washing machine? Or that computer?

We're still in a depression, and we don't seem to be allowed to sell anything. It's for our own good, right?
