Small victory, katsuragi is not presently selling chaire ... in fact several ebay sites that had been are not.
Good to hear, but still lots to be had on eBay!

We have previously gotten off topic and already discussed the highly charged broader world affair issues, myself included.

I do not expect this decision to be a popular one. But notice is hereby given. Since I have already requested that we get back on topic ... and allowing these posts to stand would require a rather pointed reply from me and again way off topic, I have decided to trim this topic in 24 hours. This will allow authors the opportunity to copy their posts if they want to ...

This will only be the posts from the last day.

Like politics and religion which are non permitted topics on TeaChat, these broader, world affair issues related to ivory are best discussed on other forums, venues.

And TeaChat will resume being a place where members can go to discuss tea and teaware related issues.
... and done. All posts in this topic from the last day or so have been split off and moved.

I have retained copies of the split posts if anyone needs a copy ...
