To the rest of the folk that did not misinterpret my first post and understood what I was really looking for, thank you for all your great ideas.   :-+

I've decided to proceed  with option 3 as I stated above.

I'll exit this thread now as it seems the local twats have shown up.

They’re pointing out how incredibly naive it is to believe you’d actually get one from a vendor in Shenzhen at a fraction of the real price.
So, I can tell from the rest of your post that reading comprehension may not be your strong suit, but it is interesting nonetheless.
Oh, please, by all means do tell me what it is that I've missed.

Remember, we can only go by what you actually wrote, not what you thought in your head.

At what point in this thread did I actually state a belief that I could get a real LM741J from the ebayer I posted a link to?  In fact I think it's fairly obvious I was making light of something I found in an ebay search.
Nothing in any of your posts indicates that you seriously suspected it's fake. The thread title asks, and your subsequent replies argue from a point of being real.


But just let me ask a question.  Does it make you feel better about yourself to try to belittle someone on the internet, just because you cannot grasp the gist of their comments, by calling them naïve?
I said:
They’re pointing out how incredibly naive it is to believe you’d actually get one from a vendor in Shenzhen at a fraction of the real price.
I didn't call you, specifically naive. This is an example of the English "generic you", i.e. a synonym for "one". That sentence is synonymous with "They’re pointing out how incredibly naive it is to believe one would actually get one from a vendor in Shenzhen at a fraction of the real price."

You're the one who dragged down the discourse with calling people Dunning-Kruger recipients (which you don't understand the meaning of), "twats", and of having "outbursts" when it's actually you having them.
