You know how if you look at a lot of a certain type of item ebay tries to 'choose' other things you miht be interested in and show a selection on the homepage for you?

Make you wonder what thei algorithm will choose for you if you search through 'sexual succubus' listings?

DVDs about oral-sex on public transport is what I got.

I hear ya.. lol

but.. (more seriously, which ain't easy on a thread about "spells") I believe health is one of the great levellers of people.  If money could buy you good health, rich people wouldn't die or suffer.  They can buy drugs and treatment to keep them going a little longer and maybe ease the suffering a little better.. but they still hurt and still fear ill-health.  Same as us "poor folks".

*smiley smoking a cigar and drinking 12yr-old Malt*
The funny thing is .... health is something one could keep a long time if a little carefull .. and 12 years old single malt should be reimbourse as heart medication by the healthcare system of each country... in moderation of course, just two fingers of it a day... the distance between the thumb and the pinky........ stretched.

I thought there was a agee limit by the fairies plus the fact you had to be a believer, so technically those non believers ebay shareholders get deadly squat!

You just reminded me why I never use public transport anymore.

On one hand, I say if people want to buy that stuff then let it be sold. On the other, I'm glad to see a major company admit that humans are morons who need to be protected from themselves, because I've been saying that for years.

On a related note, one of my friends lost his soul in a game of pool. He delivered it to the winner in a jar, labeled "*****'s Soul", a few days later. The winner kept it for a year or so, then finally returned it out of the goodness of his heart.

That sucks, I used to enjoy looking at the weird "cursed Items" and stuff on there. Some of them have really entertaining stories on the listings.

People are fools who spend money foolishly. When I saw someone selling an old restaurant doggie bag, grease and all, I gave up on ebay.

Was it the kind that actually says "doggie bag"? ...

If it is, I can see why they would sell it, restaurants don't use these anymore, which is too bad, because I think they are kind of funny, even if discriminatory towards other animals ...

Once when I was coming out of a restaurant carrying some leftovers and a homeless man asked if I he could have my leftovers. I would have liked to have shown the doggie bag so I could say, "Why, so you can make my dog go hungry, you inhuman vagabond piece of human debris!"

To what I understand so far, and I've been digging around a tad on this.. You can't sell the service of casting a spell, but you can still sell a kit containing everything one needs to cast the spell for ones own self.. Provided the seller puts in plenty of CMA for if the spell does not work up to buyers expectations. You can't sell a tarot reading but you can sell tarot decks or books. You can't sell an object that contains a djinn or whatever that you can release and command, but you can sell a cursed object with the proper CMA. So yes, given proper listing and storyline we will still have haunted art and dolls.

I think ebay is just tired of playing the CMA game itself, and tired of having to settle buyer/seller disputes for intangible or unquantifiable things. Seller X offered to curse my ex, and my ex's life isn't sucking enough, or I got a reading and it wasn't true enough, or I paid a crapton of money for a spirit on command (usually sex) and they didn't pop up and appease me. Or from the sellers side, buyer X made the purchase then didn't pay up because of second thoughts or the buyer didn't really have that money to pay, or whatever. Ebay has rules for disputes, and I bet they have gone through some serious headaches. As a reputable intermediary, they have to deal with each and every complaint.
I think some of the savvy, slimy, whatever sellers will switch to offering up tangible items with all the shout outs of visit our off ebay direct channel for other goods/services. Like they will sell a few items that ebay will allow along with plenty of offers for custom options if the buyer goes to the off ebay site to the sellers personal site.

And let's just say,this is an instance right out of a movie,and said thing you buy ,has a succubus .A real one .
So after maybe,,a night or two of passion ,she possesses your beloved,and your beloved cuts your happy place off,and feeds it to the dog,and you are front page Enquired news .
You will wish you got the silk jammies .
Just sayin .
