1. What is it doing under the cloth diaper listings?
2. Who cares? *vintage* includes the year 2000??? Um, I don't think so.

"Vintage".... :LOL Too funny!

They had Barney on them back in 2000? When is that pesky purple dinosaur going to go away already?? I was hoping by the time I had kids he'd have gone the way of the rest of the dinosaurs... no such luck.

They slide it into cloth diapering, b/c some moms do both and they will have less 'competition' of other disposables within cloth diapering. They write 'Vintage' and 'Plastic' because moms will click on *Vintage* and might think it Plastic Pants or something.

I'd report them.

Geez :

Actually, they call them "vintage" because Luvs no longer makes the actual plastic covers on the diapers and now makes the more "cloth-like" covers that Pampers and Huggies have. And, for some reason, people hunt for the old Luvs. I'm not sure why they are in the cloth section though.

I only know this from when I used sposies before I discovered cloth!

I guess I don't get that fetish- the package says 27 pounds. An adult would never fit in those, what exactly do they do with them:

yeah, it is another fetish type thing. :Puke I remember reading on another board a long time ago about it (not the details, cause I don't wanna know). I had some packages of diapers left over from dd#1, and I thought about ebay'ing them... because some of those diaper packs were going for serious $$!! Then, I read about the fetish and donated the diapers instead. :

there are some freakish people out there. Blech.

I don't understand the fetish, but I guarantee you that they would love the pot they are stirring here. Let's be careful not to talk so much that someone hears wind and we invite them our way.
<I'm refraining from the puke smilie as a courtesy to Shelly>
