The online auction giant has announced that it will no longer permit the sale of magical items.

From September onwards eBay will be cracking down on "advice, spells, curses, hexing, conjuring, magic, prayers, blessing services, magic potions, [and] healing sessions" according to a recent announcement. The move comes as a blow to those who sell such items on the site but has been seen as a positive move by skeptics.

eBay previously placed restrictions on the sale of intangible items following a number of people using the auction service to sell their own souls.

"eBay has announced it will ban the sale of spells, hexes and magical items from its online auction site."

Each thing is a very specific move . The original run of Harry Potter wands vibrated at the touch of a button, they were infamously used for something they were designed for.

Soooooo your saying they were made for sexual use. ? Sorry, mistake on my part. It should have read... The original run of Harry Potter wands vibrated at the touch of a button, they were infamously used for something they were not designed for.

Someone missed the boat on that one. A person could have created a spell/hex/hoaxhex to have prevented eBay from putting this into their company policy. And then when people complained it didn't work, 'Curses!' they all say.

I was gonna say something but my brain hurt too much to do it. Seriously, is E-Bay really serious? Banning spells and hexes? May as well ban the sale of rosaries, statues of all sorts, incense, etc. See...this is why I don't like to buy from E-Bay.....it's run by crackpots.....
