[meteorite-list] Ad Ebay meteorites

I own some of Mike's, some of Adam'/Greg's, and some unclassified. I think
they are paired but continue to use the "likely paired' caveat admissible by
the NomCom . I use 1929 when appropriate, "paired with NWA numbers pending"
for Adam/Greg's and "likely paired" for the unclassified. They all sell for
the same price, they are all purchased by the same customers. I wholly
concur that "likely paired" should be used in cases such as this recent
thread. Who owns 869, should be some royalties on that one. Focus people,
everyone is guilty of not following the exact word of the NomCom or EVERY
NWA METEORITE WOULD BE WINDOWED.

>> Hey Bob,
>> I thought everybody agreed to abide by the NomCom rules regarding the use
>> NWA numbers. What you have is not NWA 1110 or NWA 1877. Why don't you
>> statements such as:
>> I suspect my untested and unofficial material may be paired to NWA 1068
>> NWA 1877 because a Moroccan dealer named Habibi told me so.
>> I borrowed some of my descriptions against ebay rules from the Hupes
>> their consent.
>> I do not want to get into any more arguments because Jeff Grossman has
>> the rules clear regarding the use of NWA numbers. Most everybody else
>> changed their descriptions on websites, at shows and auctions to reflect
>> their newly found understanding of these rules.
>> Let this serve as a final warning and then I will post the names,
>> phone numbers and transgressions of anybody who improperly uses NWA
>> without paperwork of material we were responsible for making official on
>> legally protected website called 'TheMeteoriteSite.com", still under
>> construction. The lack of respect for NomCom rules only serves to
>> consumer confidence.
>> When bad checks were received at one of our retail stores we used to
>> it to the size of a poster and paste it on the storefront window so that
>> over a 100,000 motorists could view it every day as they passed by.
>> Needless to say, the writers of the bad checks paid up and
>> shoppers never tried to pass bad checks on us again.
