Check out this auction and pay close attention to the description, especially what's wrong with the camera

They can't be serious, can they?

Funny...I wonder if the winning bid would be very low because of this...

Looks like he sells all kinds of stuff. Doesn't make him stupid, as not everyone digs deep to find out. Now, who the heck was the original owner... or the one who gave it to this guy to sell? Who knows, but I bet there is a history, a gift or something like that. The seller has a 99.6 favorable, so I don't think he is intentionally selling hot goods!

There are lots of people that come from the ranks of P&S....and they can't believe that a more expensive camera doesn't have such an important feature like live view on the LCD....this guy is just a seller of what ever comes his way...he is just relaying the story as he sees it...someone can probably get one hell of a bargain on a perfect camera.

Now that is funny. It amazes me that people can't read the directions or do any research...

Does it really?

And I thought that, at one time not so long ago anyway, the first question asked of someone posting a question on the forums was, "Have you read the manual?"
For stupid questions (however you define those!) the first answer was usually "RTFM"...............
You are obviously too nice a person to answer a question in that way.
