Thread: FleaBay cops are on vacation!

  1. #1

    Default FleaBay cops are on vacation!

    Check it out: I have,at one point in time, included pictures of me holding my 30+mW laser modules in my hand to show scale and brilliance, and had my ad yanked from FleaBay with the rude autoresponder message that my modules could not be sold, b/c evidently my "modules" were mistakenly viewed as "pointers".

    WELLLL

    I see that some other guy has likeabout 8 items posted here...http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...757841908&rd=1

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooo

    Either FleaBay cops are on vacation, or they just don't like my plumbing -- who knows what -- but it's got me good and peeved fierce that I had to get my ads pulled, for what I later discover to be a discrepancy of policy...aren't 30mW laser "pointers" ... like...not only unstable and prone to eat up batteries etc...but also (according to FleaBay) not *allowed* on FleaBay??

    What gives??!!

    Might want to shoot them an email.

    Looks like I stirred up a hornets net on Wicked's site...
    really didnt mean too.....

    Come to find out the dude "Cipher" (he posted later on Wicked's site) is the one selling these and apparently didnt know ebays rules on these.."if there are any" . He looked and didnt find any reason not too, so he posted them.
    I too have been up and down thru their rules and didn't find anything making them "illegal" to sell.

    But they "eBay" do say its against ebay policy to sell over 5mW laser pointers.
    I have recieved that response myself from them.

    However, They will pull it if someone complains..I wont, because it might cause problems for all lasers.,

    but someone else might..just because they are afraid some kid might buy it and get hurt...
    In otherwords , selling to the "uneducated" crowd.

    I guess it just made me mad too.. because "I" cant sell my lasers because of the high powered pointers showing up there...and all the attention they are getting. drawing away from the ones selling real lasers. or at least something that will last longer.

    Sure...we all want the handheld ones. --- but "those" will die all too soon.
    and they will graduate to the better ones.

    Well, I couldnt sleep unless I posted this.
    This guy (chipher) just doesnt give up...
    They were yanked off because they were "POINTERS" over 5mW dumbass
    He's BAAAACCKKK
    His latest tactic...he bullshitted eBay!!!

    His words---
