    Sales of Notebooks to Russia Banned?

    My friend in St. Petersburg got this message (from Ebay) when he bought a laptop on Ebay (The shipment was canceled):

    "We are writing to inform you that your recent purchase through the Global Shipping Program from [ Seller Name ] cannot be completed.
    The item in question has been deemed restricted. This could be due to import/shipping restrictions or eligibility requirements within the Global Shipping Program. The item will not be shipped to you nor returned to your seller."

    The "item" is a Lenovo Thinkpad X1. Hard to see this as being some sort of advanced "hi-tech" item, whose shipment from US to Russia is "restricted"?

    Lenovo is installed with Chinese spyware from the factory, only intended to be used in the evil US of A.

    Okay, okay, the jokes section is in "expat cafe"

    I'm going to buy the laptop and send it to my friend in Russia (AFTER he pays me, of course. ) Capitalizmus!
