The online battle for papyrus texts: Telegraph

I'm calling bull on the eBay claim below as they rarely even answer emails even when provided with irrefutable evidence: The online battle for papyrus texts - Telegraph:

An eBay spokesman, however, said that its 150 million buyers and sellers “must ensure listings comply with our clear policy on artifacts. We work with regulators, law enforcement and other parties including the Egyptian Embassy to apply this policy, and if a listing of concern is identified we will require proof that it was legally exported and remove any listing where this proof is not provided.”
 ... but am glad the issue is again being publicised, and am thrilled  to read that Brice Jones has moved over the years from spotting texts online to now doing something to fight their illegal sale.

I do not moderate comments, but I remove spam, overt self-promotion ("read [link] my much better post on this") and what I consider hate speech (racism, homophobia etc).
