Ebay considers "Fu&%ers" a word. (WARNING Language)

Recommended Posts

As I was running the spell check on my Ebay listing it got to the word "Fockers" in the title "Meet The Fockers". The word it suggested made me laugh my ass off. Thought you guys might like it. Warning Language.

Well, at least they did get the spelling right for the most common word  :2funny:

Yea they were even nice enough to capitalize it for me. I wonder if I would have listed it with that word if they would have removed my listing. That would have started a fight considering they suggested the word.  :evil6: :evil6: :evil6::uglystupid2:

My point is if SKS accessories is not allowed .......and thats the rule? Look at all the listing violations. Myself I'm surprised anything linked to a gun period is allowed period. :?:

here is a letter sent about an SKS listing being removed:

Thank you for writing eBay in regard to the SKS magazine listing and the

other similar listings that you see currently on the site.

I can fully understand the frustration in having an auction listing

ended. First off, I would like to let you know that I have refunded your

listing fees for this auction. I hope this eases your mind some to know

this.

Now, xxxxxx, as for your specific auction, the reason for the

cancellation was this was an accessory to an assault weapon, which I

will explain further below.

Your magazine was marketed for a SKS equipped with a detachable

magazine, which is an assault weapon.

eBay has recently revised its Firearms Policy so that the sale of any

assault weapon-related parts or accessories will no longer be permitted.

This will apply to all parts and accessories related to any firearm

defined as an "assault weapon" by either Federal or California law.

The primary reason that eBay has changed its policy is that various

state and federal laws are particularly complex when it comes to

regulating, and even defining, assault weapons parts and accessories.

What is legal in one jurisdiction may be illegal in another, and as the

category grew, it became increasingly difficult for us to enforce a

consistent policy.  To keep our community from inadvertently violating a

firearms law, and to simplify our enforcement into a policy that would

be fair and consistent to all sellers, we took the step of banning all

parts and accessories related to assault weapons. This decision was made

purely to help protect our community from inadvertently violating

firearms laws, and for enforcement reasons.

With regard to your second question about why other listings you may see

on the site that are listed in a similar fashion to yours are still

listed, xxxxxx, I understand your position. Let me assure you that you

are not being targeted or discriminated against, and that we value

having you as a member.

Please understand that with over 1 million active listings at any given

time, it is not always feasible for us to be aware of all violating

listings within the time frame of some auctions. I know this may not

seem fair because these listings are live on the site, however, during

our search for listing policy violations, or when members like yourself

report these listings and bring them to our attention, we fully

investigate each report. Listings that are found to be in violation of

our policies are dealt with appropriately.

It's important that you do not treat the action taken on your listings

personally, but rather as an informational alert to make you aware of

our policies. While it may not be immediate or obvious, other sellers

who are engaging in listing practices which violate our policies will

eventually have similar action taken.

If you wish to report items that you feel are in violation of this or

any other policy, please use the following link:
