I think I know how this guy feels. What exactly is the psychology of the breathless eBay feedback? There is so much ridiculous feedback like:
SUPER FAST!!! PERFECT TRANSACTION!!!
AAAAA+++++++++++++ The best!!!!
GREAT GREAT buyer!!! A SUPER Ebayer!!!!!
What the heck? Are these people so afraid that they might get a negative rating that they puff up the ratings they give in the hopes this will ensure the person they rate will reciprocate? Is it just herd mentality where they have seen others leave similar feedback and feel they should do the same? Is it a keep up with the Joneses mentality that has spiraled to absurdity? "He gave an A+, so I'll go one better with A++." I don't get it. It is just silly and provides no useful information beyond that which is already provided by the green "positive".
I have participated in exactly one transaction on eBay, and left the following positive feedback:
Satisfactory. Product delivered in timely fashion and in good condition.
I thought that was sufficient. The transaction was fine, but it was certainly not orgasmic...
