As someone mentioned on that article page, Ebay should be defending the guy here. It is their system that they encourage people to use. It will blow the whole eBay system to pieces if the result is bad for the buyer.

Next he'll probably sue paypal or ebay for siding with the buyer and giving a refund. Ebay is just a joke I hate it and I have never even used it

Once I left feedback for someone that said "This buyer is full of Saddam Hussein's lies"

She was a stupid bint.

That's ridiculous!

On the note of odd feedback, I received this gem "My rabbit stares at me in a way that makes me nervous. "

Hopefully it was a positive though :thumbsup:

Something is needed with the eBay neg system. Example of a neg with had was "Post came while I was out - had to collect it myself". How was it our fault or RM fault if the person was out?
Luckily now we use a courier system that txts the person an hour before arriving, and if no-one is at home, they text them again and arrange a re-delivery within the hour.
A good system, although pricey.

This isn't the first time it has happened, it was tried once over here, it didn't go ver far though I believe as the fb was factual and non personal.

Although in America, I don't know how different it is, I think this guys big mistake was not being factual and making personal comments about the seller.

That's why ebay will remove 99% of personal comments if not reported or if they don't it's why they have the Notice of Claim of Defamation Statutory Declaration.
