How interesting. I saw the "keyword spamming" term in the report form and wondered what it was. Thanks for educating us

That is too true! Why take all the best things in life away?

I reported it too, I hope it gets taken down.

And for the poster who was wondering about the circ rate in Fairmont, Minnesota, it is high. All of Minnesota is high, and in tiny southern MN Fairmont, he probably hit the nail on the head with his 94% or whatever he said.

Of course that's not true for the nation, and not even all of Minnesota, but as a state, our circ rate usually hovers around at least 80%. My nurse friends in the area (central MN) say that upon leaving the hospital, 9 out of 10 are circ'd have a scheduled circ within the next few days. :

When I got the circ info sheet from my hospital it said that its circ rate was 90-95%. For someone unaware of the lower national circ rates, which this eBay seller obviously was, it would be easy to look at the info sheet and assume that the 90-95% applied to the nation at large.

Disgusting! :Puke

I reported him and then sent him a message. Here's what I said, I tried to be nice!

"Hi! Congrats on your twins! How exciting! I wanted to let you know that what you have stated about circumcision is inacurate. It is NOT cleaner -how is an open wound exposed to pee and poop in a diaper cleaner?- and it's NOT the norm! Only 50% of boys born in the US are circumcised now. My son is intact (not cut) and he is fine. No problems, no infections, etc. There's a reason the gov't stopped paying for circumcisions: they're not medically necessary! Even the American Academy of Pediactrics says so. I encourage you to look at www.nocirc.org and www.cirp.org before your son is born. Here is a site on how to care for an intact penis: http://www.cirp.org/library/normal/aap/. It's really easy: you just wipe the outside until the boy can retract it himself and then he just retracts, rinses, and recovers in the shower. It's that simple! I encourage you to keep your Wii AND your son's foreskin! He'll thank you! Have a great day!"

That's an hour away from me. I didn't even notice his location. Unfortunately the rate is pretty high around here... :

I will probably get in trouble w/ the mods here, but if someone were to buy something from him (not this item obviously) and what comes next-- leave feedback either "positive", "neutral" or "negative", it's something the seller CAN'T remove; if neutral or negative, only get a chance to respond. It would chip away at his overall rating and you get almost 100 characters to respond to the purchase.

He is probably just jumping on the stupid bandwagon that makes elaborate stories sell listings.

microsoap... very calculating....... I love it!
maybe someone would follow another bid.....I am, for one, a bidder who thoroughly investigates prior to entering into any negotiations!
of course he can leave you feedback as well....but you can also refute any erroneous claims against you also!
