It seems I am the victim of sour grapes. Someone has reported me to eBay for selling my dolls to my sister-in-law. Mind you, I live in Illinois, she lives in Arizona. She is my A number 1 fan when it comes to my creations. She has always been very supportive. I consider her interest a very big compliment since she wasn't always walking on the prim side! Apparently my selling my dolls to her, and her even bidding on them is against eBay policy. Shill bidding is what they classify it as. As a matter of fact, family, coworkers, friends, etc. are prohibited from bidding on your auctions. They can only purchase your items thru a buy it now auction.

I have been suspended from eBay for 14 days. No sense in fighting it, believe me. They will not even answer my emails. Pitiful. There are users on there selling items for 99 cents and then charging 40 bucks for postage. Ridiculous. That is against policy too. Why don't they pick on them? What about the ones who violate copywrite laws and copy other designers patterns and sell them? Sigh......very disheartening thats for sure. I have not decided whether I will go back to eBay or find another selling outlet for my dolls. At this point, I hate to give them one red cent of my money. In a sense, I have the taste of sour grapes in my mouth not only for the person who reported me, but for eBay as well.

To the moral, fine upstanding citizen who reported me, thank you. If I gave you a little bit of enjoyment in your pathetic little life, then so be it. I am glad I could be of service to you. Search your heart and list all your perfections on paper so that you can be assured you are better than those of us you choose to pick on. Refer to the list the next time you feel like doing a dirty little deed to make yourself feel big. Maybe it will help you change your mind.

And thanks sis for all your support....even though ebay plus one other ,think it was wrong.

I do not buy or sell on the bay anymore just because of these idiocracies. Terrible. Hey, whereabouts in AZ is she? I'm in Mesa, AZ. :)

That is one of the silliest things I have heard of. I hate it too when people sell for little and then add a huge postage fee. Why don't they go after them. What makes it worse is that you must know this person because how did she know that this person is your sister? Maybe you would be better off starting your own web page. Cheers, Vicki

You know Terri I would just chalk it up to some pathetic POS getting their jollies.

I have to agree that they are stupid azz rules but what can you do? Don't let this get you down, press on with pride.

Because if you press on it is just flipping that idiot the bird. :)

You know where I'm going with this...
