Well that is disappointing; it would have taken the same amount of time to write the seller and tell him to remove the bogus statement. And it certainly would have been better optics for eBay.

That might alienate someone already listing things. Future bidders are only potential customers.

Extremely disappointing. Just further proof that it's all just lip service, not any real attempt to improve things.

People can put many conditions in their listings but that does not mean they are binding on any one.

Only eBay terms and conditions apply!

@Jim,
Did you adjust your tie and wore a suit when you accepted the challenge? (mindless HIMYM reference...)

Thanks for the effort. Unfortunately for the buyer (and not just in stamps) business gets in the way of ethics. I don't really want to deal with anyone who will fall back on 'but it's legal...' rather than on what's ethical. Then again, I have yet to start selling, and I hope my ideals don't get trampled by business realities (and the need for income...) It's easy to postulate and hold lofty positions when I don't need the income (yet...) It would be great if we could have platforms like eBay, HipStamp, and others assign 'Ethical' badges to sellers based on verified users. But I supposed there will always be folks looking to game the system and invest on gaining such badges (get a bunch of Microworkers to sign up, become verified, then leave positive feedback, etc...)

Well, if nothing else, we now have Steve's contact information which could be useful in other situations. I'd be interested to know how that was obtained. I'd like to learn who the managers are in a few other categories. Is there a directory somewhere?

This thread was brought to my attention from a member of the stamp dealer community, and I would like to step in as the category manager for Stamps on eBay. We will not remove items unless there are in clear policy violation, and/or significantly not as described.

We in fact do care what is being listed to ensure that the inventory that is being offered is correctly ID'ed as best as possible by the seller and look to educate sellers if they have described something incorrectly.

For those that frequent this forum, I would like to work with you, not against you, to help better the overall site experience.

Please reach out to me at shalupka@ebay.com and we can start a dialogue about how we can improve eBay for the hobby.
