Another ebay sucker....

Postby dolphinius_rex on Fri Dec 09, 2005 4:59 am

I found this link on the UserFriendly.org forum.... it's pretty darn misleading, but if you look hard enough, you'll see the trick:
Clicky

I hope something can be done for the poor fool who won the auction... #-o

personally i think people who do that kind of stuff should be shot.
or better still (the greedy bastards) - a punishment from the ancient world.
tie them up, pull their head back, force their mouth open, and pour molten gold down their throat.

I had to track this one to The Register because the link ended up just giving me a search dialog: http://search.ebay.co.uk/#ebayphotohosting.

I think eBay should take action against guys like this! (although your suggestions are certainly worth discussing, but you have to get him first...)

maybe eBay did something and removed it (bad publicity?) because when i clicked on dolph's link a few hours ago it did give the auction !

Yeah, eBay yanked it. They're pretty good about that sort of stuff.

Those people should be locked up behind bars...

A friend of mine (an a**hole) put up an Xbox 360 related gmail address on eBay and got something like ~$220 for it, but of course, the buyer didn't pay, thank god.
