who keeps entering "free shipping" in the sales history comments for ebay auctions?

many times they are incorrect..... a lot of auctions that offer INTL shipping are priced differently than the USA. the price you are getting quoted is wherever you happen to be logged into for your account. shipping prices can be set by US vs INTL (or even by country).

i don't think it should be entered unless it is FREE SHIPPING for all locations. i've seen it entered on A LOT of auctions that offer free shipping in the USA.... but INTL shipping is $40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, etc.

i'd assume we can just ignore shipping comments as it is an assumed cost (unless there is some anomaly which is super high or something).

ok... so it has to be a moderator of the forum or someone that can edit content. i submitted a few completed ebay auctions and they seem to have been updated / edited with comments about free shipping (which i did not enter).
