A look at the discussion boards on ebay reveals thread after thread of unhappy buyers and sellers, a climate of fear and distrust. At least one online blog has begun monitoring the scene: ebayhorrorstories.wordpress.com

I have over 1000 transactions and can't remember a bad one. Buy from a reputable seller and you have a problem. Non-issue

I got so frustrated with ebay that I went back to consignment shops and yard sales. Plus my kiddos get to help me whenever I have a yard sale!

Ebay is getting a lot of bad press lately because of bad policies that are adversely impacting sellers on ebay, and as a result, many sellers are leaving ebay.

With the advent of ebay China, thousands of Chinese sellers are flooding ebay with cheap, shoddy "made in China" items at rock-bottom prices. This not only cheapens the prestige of ebay as a site, but it undermines American ebay sellers as well.

Ebay sellers filed an antitrust lawsuit over feedback policy last year. Will be interesting to watch as it makes its way into court.

Why do you have a problem with me buying sex toys on ebay? How does that affect YOU? Why should I stop doing something because you do not like it?

I know one thing, I have no problem with my kids getting on Etsy. Etsy doesn't allow sellers to peddler pornographic filth on their site the way ebay does.

I suppose you have to be LOOKING for sexually explicit stuff on E-bay. I've used it for at least 5 years and I had no idea they sold porn til I read it on here!

15,000 sellers were restricted, suspended, or outright banned in ebay's latest purge last week. A publicity nightmare for ebay in the making. Suzanne Wells broke the story at www.examiner.com

Ebay rocks, if you are stupid to understand how it works, who's fault is that? 1000's of transactions no issues.
