FWIW, several years ago, eBay tried to stop the selling of boat anchor gear, which
troubled me quite a bit since I collect certain WW II military radios and radars. When
repeated emails to eBay were rebuffed, I emailed the ARRL President and got back a
snotty reply. The content was essentially 'don't bother me'.

Eventually Riley Hollingsworth told eBay that selling the older gear was OK, but the
ARRL was no damn help whatsoever to me or boatanchor collectors..
