eBay is "eBay", not "Ebay" with a link to EVSEs

I saw my posts getting modified to replace the term "eBay" with "Ebay" and linking to an eBay search for "evse"...

Really strange choice there. But it compels me to post some feedback about the replacement of "eBay" with the misspelled replacement, "Ebay".

It's "eBay". Small "e", capital "B". Forcing the capitalization to be changed is probably an artifact of the word-filter used to insert keyword ads in the forum, but those keywords should absolutely be proofread. :lol:

Sorry, it's a little quirk, but unless someone says something, nobody will know! ;)

Gahaha... little did I realize that my post itself is also subject to the word filter, so all the different uses I stated above were replaced with the mistaken "Ebay" term.

So, there's a little trick around the word filter with bbcode tags:

It's eBay, not Ebay. :)

And if you try to type the work "blinking", you end up with:

blinking

Sigh.

It's the commercialization of our own writing, and it's one of the reasons I don't contribute money to this site - they sell my words as it is.

Fixed the eBay and blinking issues.

It's the chicken and the egg - if more people did contribute money to the site we wouldn't have to sell your words :)
