eBay’s going to ban sellers from giving buyers neutral or negative ratings and leaving nasty comments, the big meanies. The change will take effect in May across all eBay’s sites, and the company says it’s meant to stop sellers retaliating for their own poor feedback. Predictably there have been howls (ok, “posts”) of protest from sellers.
We think it’s about time eBay did this. What right does a seller have to rate you as a customer? As long as they get your money it’s up to them to keep you happy, not the other way round. And if someone doesn’t pay? Report them to eBay and wait for the big ban hammer to fall.
