I wonder how many Ebayers would not have great feedback if retaliation was not a fear? If you have a bad experience on eBay, do you NOT post negative feedback for fear they will harm your reputation in return? This is something I think that eBay really needs to work on. I find myself not being as honest as I could be for fear of unjustified negative feedback. I purchased something not too long ago from a seller with 100% positive feedback. It has been an ongoing nightmare and still I wait for my $800.00 refund that I'm sure will never show up. (yes, I'm an idiot and paid via MO, but, only because of the great fb the seller had). I searched this forum and asked around, only to find out this seller has had some really shady things going on. I just wonder why if that happened to some buyers, why they did not post negative feedback. That is after all the only way a buyer or seller has of determining the honesty of an Ebayer. I am guilty of it myself, however, I intend to start being a little more honest in my FB as well. I think that if you have an open dispute on eBay and it is escalated to a claim, that Ebayer should lose all rights to leaving you any FB at all.
