I think that the general motto for eBay (and I am a junkie myself) is
"caveat emptor." I don't see how it can be otherwise in a system open
to everyone. Sort of like complaining about the quality of
information available on the Internet -- it's up to the consumer to
sift the facts from the "data." Nobody should put more into an eBay
purchase than they can afford to lose.
