    Ex-Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott is selling his first
    cell phone on eBay http://atu.ca/VinnieCell

    The phone is an old Motorola "Startrac" model from the
    early '90s and is supposedly a birthday gift from -- sniff
    sniff -- Dimebag. The auction, which ends on January 19,
    has a video of Vinnie explaining that he doesn't need the
    money, he just thought someone might enjoy the novelty of
    owning it.

    I had one of those back in the late 1990s. They make great doorstops
    and could be used as a hammer. They were analog phones which pretty
    much precludes using them in today's world. Unless you need a hammer or
    a doorstop!

    This isn't a "for sale" newsgroup, and the post violates eBay rules.

    Why should WE care? eBay's rules and the enforcement thereof are eBay's
    problem!

    Didn't your mother ever tell you that being a tattletale won't endear
    you to
    your playmates?
