Yeah, you can pay with paypal but when you sell something that money don't go into paypal like it used to. now it's gotta go in your bank account & no longer instant, now you gotta wait days & wonder if & when you'll actually get paid. And now you gotta transfer money from your Bank account to your Paypal account just to have Money in there. Anybody on ebay & uses it regularly should already know all this? LEON.

Just noticed this new level of stupidity on Feebay. While doing a category search the message "WE REMOVED SOME SEARCH RESULTS" appeared above the listings. WHAT!!!! How dumb is that???? What would give them the right to eliminate results from a search? This is absolute lunacy. A search engine that doesn't give you real search results. A search engine that eliminates part of its findings!!!! FEEBAY has gone absolutely stupid.

I've been using "PicClick" to search eBay for quite a while now, much easier and faster to scan through the many listings, I don't think their search engine would do what eBay's site is doing now.

I personally like them putting my money into my bank account. You can have eBay deliver your money every day or every week.

It gets worse than that! I had listed a 1899 leather Dr.’s bag- it’s just thick leather like all the rest on there. Punch in leather there! But I get special treatment there. Check it:

What possible "logic" could they have used? Do they perhaps think that "Dr." is an endangered species and they don't want tanned scrotums from the species marketed on their site?

I'm sure it was an algorithm that did that, not a human. These big sites aren't moderated by people much anymore, it's just computer programs removing stuff and half the time no one knows why they choose the things that they remove. No idea what could have triggered the algorithm to remove a leather bag. Maybe a reference to "snake oil" or some other unrelated animal word somewhere further down in the listing?
