I had the agony of eBay tossing out some of my auctions for the mention of the sacred word *Campagnolo* in the title when it wasn't a Campagnolo item. Offenders: Not Campagnolo, Like Campagnolo, Wish It Was Campagnolo -- you get the idea.

Now I hide that famous name in the descriptive text, as opposed to the title, and hope the world will search *titles and descriptions* for Campagnolo in their searches for vintage parts.
