eBay sellers attack negative feedback ban

Saw this on Friday..

“Entrepreneurs have criticized the move by online auction service eBay to prevent sellers from posting negative feedback about customers who buy items. As part as what it described as “bold changes,” the company announced last week that beginning in May, sellers will not be permitted to leave negative comments about buyers. Traditionally, both sellers and buyers have been encouraged to post feedback, be it good or bad.”

Actually I have sympathy with eBay after one seller nicely put in feedback on me after a mistake I made on some download software purchase: DO NOT SELL TO, ABSOLUTE IDIOT. Hey, payback dude.
