    Timely thread for me - my Jura S9 (bought second-hand 11 years ago) is having problems, and I'm not enjoying using my Zyliss cafetiere mugs (although they are ideal for travelling - so good that they...

    The forum was down for a few hours. Even if it were down for a total of 24 hours every year (and I suspect that the downtime is an awful lot less than that), it would still only equate to 0.274%...

    If it was bought online, then by law you have 14 to request a refund - even if it was just a "change of mind" return rather than a defective watch. They cannot deny you that.

    I understand that...

    I don't believe that gifts are exempt from tax - it's just that they are less likely to be examined by HMRC at point of import.

    It is very risky to allow a buyer to arrange their own courier for items which have been paid for by PayPal, as the seller will have no evidence of having used a tracked service to deliver, and will...

    Unfortunately winning a case in small claims court is a very different thing to actually getting paid/action, as these people are finding. If it's a monetary matter, then the usual remedy is to...

    The whole concept of a fixed percentage of the whole purchase price is very much skewed in the estate agent's favour. The problem is that you, as the seller, want to get as much as possible for your...

    Aren't you placing a big reliance on the seller to package the speakers adequately?

    Where does the liability lie if they are not packaged sufficiently and they get damaged in transit? (if they...

    Most of the better snipers (such as Gixen or JBidWatcher) allow you to set up Groups such that as soon as you win one auction in the group, it will no longer bid on any other items in that group.

    The number of Auctions (as opposed to Buy IT now) listings on eBay is tiny. For me it's not unusual for a search to return over a thousand results, of which at most 5 or 6 are auctions.(An example: I...

    BillN has made a blatantly racist remark. That makes him a racist. The evidence is there for anybody to see.

    You have refused to condemn that statement, which suggests to me that you are condoning...

    I am not Chinese so was not personally insulted by BillN's racist remarks - just disappointed to see such blatant comments expressed on a public forum.

    Who's arguing? I asked you a simple question, which you didn't answer, so I must assume that you condone (and possibly even support) racist behaviour. How very sad.

    And your point being?

    A blatantly racist comment was made. It needs to be called out. Unless you are happy with racist comments on the forum?

    If you can't understand why your comment of "Bloody Chinese, I presume" is racist, then you are the one who is badly in need of assistance. It's utterly unacceptable to utter such unfounded prejudice...

    Why would you presume that, given that both Oki (who make the printer) and Toshiba (who make the laptop) are Japanese?
