Almost immediately one of our regular posters came on and remarked that although not the same size ,wider, as mine you could buy them for the same price new.
Not something I was aware of but as I said not the same width as mine but nonetheless I just removed the advert.
Why the poster felt that he needed to point out the fact that he did I dont know and it did leave a sour taste in my mouth for a while but rather that than be left with the feeling that I overcharged someone.
Personally I dont feel its my place to comment on anything for sale and those that do in my opinion should find something more positive to do.

I guess you where only unhappy because it reduced the amount of money you could get for the item. This is why I started the thread, for some reason only positive comments are viewed as acceptable by the mods.
