Re: Threats on eBay

That practice is contrary to the Ebay terms and conditions.: You must not include comments that discourage buyers from participating or that undermine either the buyer experience or confidence in the marketplace...

Re: Threats on eBay

Even if against ebay guidelines, its against the law.  You buy something new you have the  warranty that they state, if they don't want bad feed back don't peddle crap

Re: Threats on eBay

A bit pointless as if you left a neg I would have assumed that you wouldn't want to use the item.
Then maybe they've had some bad experience with triers.
As in "I don't think it's perfect refund half of my money or I'll give you a neg"

Re: Threats on eBay

The item may be perfectly good, but the service might be poor, hence the feedback.  Such as you paid, got no communication, received the wrong item, sent it straight back, and then took ages for them to send out the correct item.  I'd say in a situation like that you'd want to leave negative feedback, but the item you eventually receive might be perfectly good.

Re: Threats on eBay

I just think that if anyone with any sense read the terms and conditions they would go straight past.
