"Steve, You are totally correct but we know ebay won't remove the high volume crooks. How can we make them do that. How can we make them see that the hobby is being badly hurt by their lack of action?"

"Brian, I don't want to give my money to TPA's. They are making enough money already without getting money from honest sellers who do not use their services. Ebay has to put a police force in place. Period."
