MORE ON EBAY PAYMENT POLICIESRegarding the question of the eBay's violation of antitrust laws, Larry Gaye writes:
When was the last time ANY company was sued under the Sherman Anti-Trust Law? Large corporations have had free reign for decades. Maybe with this latest meltdown this can be resolved.
Jeff Starck writes:
Alan Weinberg is incorrect about what payment can be accepted on eBay. Money orders and checks CAN be accepted, but sellers cannot mention it in their listing or, perhaps (depending on whom you ask) in their e-mail communication with the buyers. eBay has yet to ban mention of those payment methods in telepathic communications, however.
