A few people ask what lit my fuse.
Yesterday I started to list 2 pieces of heavy lab equipment. (70-90 lbs)
I found I had to enter shipping information. IE their choices of carrier, 
Fedex was not offered, packed weight, size etc. I do not pack until item is 
sold, as frequently things are picked up. I finally worked around it by 
saying items were in excess of 150 lbs and would have to go freight. I do 
not like having to lie to get around their BS.
Further is the upcoming payment changes. This will impact me some as a 
seller because not everybody has the ability to pay as they are going to 
Frankly they are getting to big for their britches. I do not like having to 
discuss this on the reflectors, but if we don't join forces we might as well 
crawl in a hole.
For those of you least affected we who are would appreciate your support. 
Who knows, their next edict may impact you.
Please file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.
They want to hear from you.
You can file a complaint by calling
or go to their web site
home page---quick find---consumer complaints.
Stand up and shout. I understand it does not take many voices to make them 
pay attention,
after all they have to justify their existence.
Scream, shout, jump up and down. Do something besides complain.
Pass this on to any reflector you can.
Thank you for the bandwidth. I will now crawl back in my hole until the next
