In response to the new administration of eBay raising sellers' rates drastically, and prohibiting sellers from leaving negative feedback for any buyer including the non-paying ones, many buyers have pledged

NO SELLING, NO BUYING, NO ACTIVITY on eBay from February 18 to February 25! at least.

Don't cross the virtual picket line!
Spread the word!

EBay supports many in their small businesses, some of whom have no other options for income. EBay must protect its sellers, who are its customers, act in their interests, and listen to their concerns - which currently are fees which prevent them from earning a reasonable living, and a prohibition against negative feedback, which robs them of protection from scammers and other non paying customers.

Buyers and sellers, unite in demanding fair treatment from the mega corp eBay for its sellers, who provide goods at fair prices, are often recycling used goods, and contribute to a healthy local economy.
