In my RSS feed I get a lot of eBay related information every day.
This morning, one particular article caught my attention...

Another one bites the dust is a real story about a real high volume seller shut down by eBay for a no real reason. Stuart tried to reason with eBay, Stuart travelled to Catalyst 2008 simply to speak face to face with someone from eBay. Stuart got nowhere with eBay.
eBay does not want Stuart's over $60,000 in fees per year because eBay has its rules... You see, a former partner of Stuarts did not pay his $250 ebay fee bill 2 years ago. Stuart paid the bill when he was made aware (it was an account Stuart has not used in 2 years). In any case, after months of trying to reason, and while under a 12 month suspension, Stuart has found a new way of doing business.
Stuart does not rely on eBay any longer, he has found his way out of the darkness of eBay suspension and into the light of eCommerce sales. Stuart sees a bright future ahead and he says he will never rely on eBay again completely as he had before.
Good for Stuart!
