I guess its true, the bay really does nothing. This is sad.

Around the NBA all-star game, a limited edition pair of shoes came out called nike foamposite galaxys. My friend had a promotional poster of the shoes he listed on ebay to make a couple bucks, well people dont read descritpions before bidding apparently and the bids skyrocketed up to $800. Instead of ebay just pulling the listing, since people obviously thought it was the shoes & not a promo poster, ebay banned his account and when he called and asked why, they told him they cannot discuss details & that he was a security risk lol. One guy even emailed him about it and was told its a POSTER like the description says, not the shoes -- the guy KEPT bidding...
So how do people get away with BS like mentioned in this post, but other people get accounts banned because bidders dont read descriptions??

Both crappy practices are things that you just have to deal with, they don't allow you to report it, and if you do, nothing gets done about it. Even in extreme cases where the account is suspended, they just open a new one in their wives'/kids'/nephew's name, and do it all over again.
