It's funny you should bring that up. I got that e-mail a few days ago, and
figured I would do the nice thing for ebay and let them chase down someone
blatantly abusing their name and ran into the same brick wall. I finally
decided their hoops to get this information to them cost more generosity
than I felt like giving. I even went to the web page they suggested to try
and give them a copy of the msg with full headers and none of their
categories at the time matched: Good willed person trying to give you
ammunition for a company abusing your name.
I gave up, and left it as their problem if they don't want to take free
help to make their case easier. If they even had an "Other" option I could
have sent it to them.
*shrug* Their loss.
