Anyone building a business on Ebay is building their house on sand.
Ebay can ignore a history of positive feedback, close your store and
account down at their whim and without cause and then all of a sudden
any advertising dollars you spent promoting with Ebay are wasted.

We were even buying their $299 a week front page ads.

Anyone who trusts Ebay needs to simply do some reading of the horror
stories out there.
