Hi John & All,
        I am not sure it is not illegal. Just becaus it falls within
eBay "rules" does NOT mean it is legal. As I said, a bid is a
legally binding agreement unless there is a minimum or a
reserve - PERIOD.
        However, given the nature of eBay, your approach
(flooding eBay with complaints to "Safe Harbor") would be
the more practical solution here.
        I also agree that if we DON'T do so, this BS will escalate.
I would consider it completely apropriate to warn people who
do this with meteorites ONCE, then officially "SHUN" them
AND flood "Safe Harbor." This is, as I said, in total violation
apropriate conduct for an auction - absolutely, without question,
        Sincerely, Michael Blood

Be more or less specific.
