    Why not when you go the grocery store do they list the bad costumers on sign at the door? NO. Now I don’t pretend to understand what all the risks to the sellers are but I do understand the risks to buyers.

    My first big eBay purchase was for a Hassy 500cm from a glamour shoot type photog in the Chicago area. This was before Paypal I sent a PO money order for $1400 to stranger. That was rough time till the camera came. Happily it worked off well. Second I bought 2 EOS1 for $1000 total from a PJ in New Orleans also before Paypal. I was more comfortable with this buy because he listed his work link and info. In both examples the risk was on me. Most of my other cameras buys have been used equipment from camera shop with no problem some with and without Paypal.

    The only trouble I’ve had is with a Keiv 88(?) pay under $200, it was a total piece of junk or another four-letter word. Was so mad I bought the Hassy

    I don't use eBay often anyways, so I don't care too much. But by the sounds of it, what they're doing is pretty ridiculous. If enough people stop using eBay because of it, eBay will have to change their ways. Dollar votes, people. Dollar votes.

    Gotta love dollar diplomacy. And if enough people speak with dollar signs, eBay will listen, and the customers (or sellers on eBay as it may be) will prevail.
