Self: Buyers and sellers on eBay adopt a name by which they will be known. The eBay name of the woman selling the quilt I was interested was "firewife30." Firewife30 is an identity, a self, that lives only within eBay. If she's a ratfink bastard elsewhere but always acts with honor in eBay transactions, the "elsewhere" is not a part of Firewife30 that I can know about or should particularly care about. The real world person behind firewife30 may even have other eBay identities. Perhaps she's also SexyUndies who had 132 "sexy items" fs/tech.pat,business/37748803.612,.htm
