I’ve found over the past few years that buying from random eBay sellers frequently gets me better results (faster, cheaper, better customer service) than shopping on Amazon, and when it doesn’t, and I get something drop-shipped from Amazon, I just remember not to buy from that seller in the future.

What I wish was that there was a way for me to blacklist a seller on eBay. I don’t care if it’s visible to other people, I just want to be able to tell myself “never buy from this seller again.”

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
