That's actually pretty funny. I've never seen that kind of thing before. I wonder whether it's effective or whether it's a like Change petition that is more akin to two people standing outside a parliament building with a tiny protest poster for some obscure ruling they don't like.

Oh, it has an effect all right... They have to be way more careful of what they buy now, they can't leave it to automated systems, or they lose money and this will force them to start glossing over the product information etc. just like a normal human being has to do without bots.

They are doing a great service for the average consumer.

Won't be on there long, Ebay have been removing them.

It's happened with the PS5 and Xbox consoles.

I thought about doing it, but it can lead to your Ebay account being banned and also end up costing you money as well.

Yeah, I thought eBay might not stand for it.
