>From an email list, Oct. 12, writing about buying from eBay:

My WordPerfect did not come in a box. I suspect because of that, it was bootleg or pirated. ...

I do not know why it was box less. It was not shipped to me from overseas.  ...

I have always wondered about the boxlessness of it.


Some have "thinking, acting, etc. outside the box/system."
