Since we started this list in 2005 or 6 or whatever it was we have had many
threads that are fun/conversational AND on topic, such as rediculous Ebay
auctions in the vintage computer hobby.  Auctiins made my obviously
non-hobbyists especially.  Check the archives from yahoo if they still
exist.  You'll see these there.

I doubt the occasiinal post about ebay auctions will break the list.

Unfortunately commodore 64 posts are ignored by some in this list, not
everyone is interested in 80s home computing, but dont let that stop you.
This list gets x0% of the traffic it used to get, social media trimmed down
traffic here.
