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 bet you can find TONS of other items that included none of this information still on eBay and not taken down.

Exactly. There are Dr bags, up the wazoo that don’t state any of this crap! I have to figure out what the cows maiden name, was, her education level and shoe size... who gave her all, in 1899: to become a beautiful and very well made drs bag- that smells like satans toilet- I gotta get this thing out of here! Lol! I’ve used so much professional $50 a bottle cat enzyme neutralizer, professional hospital spray, a bottle of aftershave- (now it smells like a tacky pimp bag.) baking soda, sunshine and fresh air, essential oil.... I don’t know what that dr did with his bag, but a 122 year old man purse can really be strong! Beautiful bag? It will probably outlast us all. So I’m wondering- which do ya think it was?

Are you sick and tired of folks listing antique bottles in the wrong date/type category?
I found out why so many sellers from Great Britain are listing whiskey bottles, etc that were made yesterday in "Antique Bottle" listings, and it's completely E-Bay's fault.
The reason can be found in the 5th message in the link below!

Someone should really make a centralized online bottle marketplace. Like eBay, but exclusively for bottles. Maybe fund it by having each listing cost between 1 and 5 dollars or something so there's nobody listing scams or clorox bottles they want a grand for. Limited if any % of sales go to the website owner. FOHBC or someone should put one together, it would be to the benefit of everybody

I can't even imagine where to start on such a project. It is greatly needed for all kinds of collectibles. FeeBay is its own worst enemy. Their main interest is competing with Amazon and such. I'm sure the auctions a big bother for them.

Eliminating listings. I listed a dog fence for a car. My listing was canceled because the algorithm thought I was selling my dog. Honestly, the thought crossed my mind... LOL. I challenged it and it was allowed. Never did sell it though. I gave it to the auto mechanic.

Never assume big corporations with tons of money and highly-paid staff make intelligent decisions... Actually the search change is not new at eBay...it happened back in 2012 when they dropped wildcard searching (see this page) This is the same company that created an affiliate program that allowed users to rip them off for millions before they noticed. And the same company where rogue employees were convicted of harassing a website that criticized them.. (https://duckduckgo.com/?t=ffab&q=ebay+employees+convicted+of+harassment&ia=web)

but hey, many of us still shop there for the stuff that turns up for decent prices o_O
