: I just noticed that Michael used the same term in discussing a rug on Ebay. I suppose that is OK because the dealer is not identified; nonetheless, internet discussion forums are what they are, and is seems that if two collectors use the term "ugly" as an opinion, there are probably many more of us who need to be a little more honest.

Dear Marvin:
I am not taking sides, but there is a distinction. I made my comment on a commercial discussion board concerning a set of bags that quite obviously are misrepresented and where specific comments were requested about the piece. I think the issue here is whether your view of a particular piece as an illustration of your opinion is appropriate on a non-commercial site and where the piece is accurately represented by an established dealer.
