<quoted text> Good luck with all of it and don't hesitate to call the Customer Service numbers at ebay and Paypal both as often as becomes necessary to get anything straightened out.
I got the money aspect covered, if all else fails- I can compensate.

A major technical glitch erupted at ebay this morning with the departure of LiveWorld. How long it will take to resolve the issue remains undetermined at this time.

Ebay's flawed DSR system is driving a lot of small sellers off. It adversely impacts them more severely and more quickly than it does high volume sellers.

There's an antitrust lawsuit going on by ebay sellers against ebay based on this flawed DSR system. Ina Steiner at Ecommercebytes.com has written a great article about it: www.ecommercebytes.com/cab/abn/y10/m12/i23/s0...

Thousands of Chinese sellers are flooding ebay with cheap, mass produced items at ROCK BOTTOM prices, undercutting American ebay sellers.

The thing that worries me the most is all the sexually explicit adult material easily available on ebay. I don't let my kids on there anymore.

The latest 15,000 to leave ebay did not do so by choice. 15,000 sellers last week were blocked from listing, restricted, suspended, some outright banned in the latest ebay "purge". Ina Steiner has a good article about all of this at EcommerceBytes.com

Guardrail or Quick Decline is the Sword of Damocles hanging over most small sellers' heads at ebay these days. It hastens the Below Standard Rating and accelerates the elimination of the small sellers. Most sellers are wondering when the next purge will take place and how many more thousand ebay sellers will get the axe in one fell swoop.

Looks like the "download" code in PC gaming is going bad on ebay--due to alot of factors-something to watch out for.

I think people are reluctant about taking a "loss"-when you look at the "big picture" ?? Taking a loss is really no-big deal--if the "loss" becomes the "status"??? Then your business is not profitable obviously and another option is always available.

It is ILLEGAL for a corporation to allow a glitch or malfunction (the automatic five-star on shipping DSR for instance) that adversely impacts a user (many of those "purged" were only out of compliance by 1 star) to continue for an extended period of time without fixing it (ebay did and has admitted this, see Ebay Drags Heels In Fixing Automatic Five-Star DSRs article by Ina Steiner). This is a BREACH of the user agreement that ebay has with the users affected by this. PAYPAL HOLDS; many (if not most) states do not allow a hold on funds of more than 10 days. Ebay has often slapped 21-day holds on sellers' PayPal funds. A Florida man contacted the banking regulators in his state, they contacted Paypal and got his funds released. Although PayPal is not a bank, it is a money transfer entity and as such falls under the banking regulators of each state. UNLEVEL PLAYING FIELD: As has been pointed out by many people in many threads, DSRs disproportionately impact and are used against small sellers while big box retailers such as TOYS R US remain essentially untouched. That's also ILLEGAL. These three are right off the top of my head, thank you for asking, I am certain there's more but i will have to study the matter further. I have said many times that a good sharp legal mind needs to look at what's going on at ebay (including the user agreement). Attorney general's offices are very good at that sort of thing. I am not an attorney, but like many on here I am sharp enough to know when there are some things amiss.

Things keep growing worse and worse for small sellers at ebay, thousands of whom have already been and are still being mercilessly purged from the site.
