I recently found this website and it might be useful for some members here. It's called Goofbay and it offers various tools like searching eBay seller history and misspelling search. I haven't found any bargains with it but it's fun to play around with. I found there are many ways to misspell Tolkien (just enter Tolkien correctly spelled in the misspelling tool). Examples:

Tolkein (this is the most popular misspelling)

Hmm... the phrase

"Please do not post links to other Tolkien information sites"

suggests that Faith considers his Facebook advertising page to be one which gives information on Tolkien...

No, it doesn't! All it does (apart from presumably making money for Faith with little or no outlay) is to offer mis-information on whatever items Faith has up for sale at any given time. One example of mis-information recently is his description of the
A & U 1976 de luxe Hobbit as being printed on 'Indian paper'. (sic)

"advanced permission", indeed. I guess you just need "normal permission" if you want to post something that he agrees with.
