    Technically FWS is part of the Department of Interior while the Forest Service is part of the Department of Agriculture.

    Was not intending to imply they were the same department. Sorry for any confusion. I just wanted to offer some insight as to how these people monitor for violation of rules and laws. Mike

    I'm not saying it's impossible. In fact, I would be quite surprised if this site wasn't being monitored. I'm just saying that EBay is far more public than Slippertalk, and you better believe that EBay is being monitored as well...

    However, EBay is also a lot bigger, and it's possible that the sheer size creates some level of cover.

    What's that famous Great Gatsby quote? "...I like large parties. They're so intimate." :p ...definitely applies

    Moot point anyway though. If the seller does get a call from the MIB, then I highly doubt they would say definitively where they got the info from (since this would negate their ability to get future info from the same source).

    Sad to hear, but not surprising unfortunately. With the wheels of bureaucracy turning as slowly as they do, by the time they get to a rescue center (if at all) they have probably been sitting in a box on a shelf for 2 months +...

    It's not slow, bureaucratic wheels that are the issue, its huge trade volumes and limited staff.

    That would be why the wheels are slow... (I consider all parts of the process part of "the wheel" :p)
