    Agreed. It doesn't surprise me.

    I'm not a lawyer or a legal expert, but I do deal with the insurance end of "personal injury" liability (libel, slander, defamation of character, etc).

    What would be safer IMO would be to state facts only.

    "Received item in pieces that did not seem to match. I will not buy from this seller again." Facts.

    That's entirely different from a statement such as: "DO NOT BUY FROM THIS LOSER AGAIN. A WORTHLESS SELLER ON ALL COUNTS!!!! DO NOT BUY!!!". Such a statement is ripe for attack alleging defamation and maligned character.

    Just the facts, ma'am.

    Buddy of mine it a lawyer and an avid ebay buyer and seller. He bought a pipe that was worth way more than it sold for. Just one of those things where the seller didn't know what they had. Apparently after the auction someone must have wised the seller up and told her that it was worth whatever it was.

    She contacted my friend and told him that she was refunding his money and that she wasn't going to send the item. He responded telling her that the "bid is a contract" works both ways and if she didn't fulfill the contract he was bringing suit. She sent the pipe.

    I'm sure there must be language in the seller's fine print telling them that recieving negative feedback is possible and stating the conditions for it I'd think that would clear the guy.

    Somebody should punch all lawyers in the beanbag, constantly.

    Actually, the lawyer is probably right here. To say he "has the morals of a used-car salesman" is defamation, and has nothing factual in it about the transaction. That's grounds for a suit.


    Was the transaction bad? Yes. But the decision to make such a rude remark (to both the seller AND used-car salespeople!) made the focus of the problem the buyer.

    I bought a mint Goldedge via BIN for something like $12. Seller said it was a mistake, refused to send it, and relisted the item. I opened a case with Ebay, but they didn't do a think about it. When I left the seller negative feedback, saying that she refused to send the item after I won it; she sent me back hatemail.

    The internet is a funny place...

    Seeing as the guy is a lawyer he did an injustace to used car salesmen.

    I hope it comes up before a cool judge. I can hear the trial now:

    Judge: "you are accusing this man of defamation because he said you have the morals of a used car salesman?"

    Lawyer: "yes"

    Judge: "and you are a lawyer?"

    Lawyer: "yes"

    Judge: "so you sued him?"

    Lawyer: "yes"

    Judge: " I hold you liable for all the defendants costs, case dismissed"
