    Default Ebay bans laser pointers

    Ebay has now added laser pointers/handheld lasers > 1mW to its list of banned items. See :

    http://www2.ebay.com/aw/uk/200810210948412.html

    for more details.

    If it reduces the frequency of 'Idiot with Laser Pointer blinds Pilot' type incidents, and the bad press that such stupidity tends to generate, I'll be happy.

    I think overall this is good, as long as it does not extend to other lasers - that would be a killer - though I have not tried to sell a laser on the bay for a number of years. I just hope though that ebays traditional inconsistency in implemention does not come though here and they start pulling random auctions just cos they have the word laser in the name.
    But whatever ebay do there will still be dix out there who do stupid things making it harder for all of us in the laser field. (oooooh a field of lasers - theres an idea)

    If you need to ask the question 'whats so good about a laser' - you won't understand the answer.
