    On eBay I see sellers use the term "we" as if they are part of a big operation in order to appear they are more important than they are. (Hams would never use "we" when they mean I, right?). I recently bought a Ranger and the seller said he was injured in a bicycle accident and had to delay shipping so I asked him why the "we" can't ship if he is injured. I once saw a seller explain a delay because her grandmother died, except in checking she had four grandmothers and in further checking her actual grand mothers died over 10 years earlier.

    I thought this thread was going in a totally different direction ...

    Wow. One thread about scanning the bands and trying to catch operators outside of the band their license allows and now Burt trying to catch EBay sellers lying about why they can’t ship things in a timely manner. We must be real bored.

    Burt, I agree. Once I hear someone using, what I call, the "royal we," I can't hear anything else. Gotta go, we're outta here, like...

    We aren't going to spend all day pondering and arguing about this are we? :p

    But, yes, I think some people with little garage companies want you to think they are more "real." OTOH, if the XYL handles the bookkeeping, that is WE, Bert. ;)

    I guess when the solar cycle is low and/or you don't get on the air anyway, the days get loooong... ;)
