eBay To Ban Sale Of Hexes And Spells

I wasn't sure if this was the right forum for this or not... Ebay sells stuff that could fall into different threads.

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

Yes - it actually used to allow it.

It seems that for years users have been taking to eBay to purchase love potions, artefacts with supposedly magical properties and spells for use in their daily lives.

But according to a post on its official blog, it will now be cracking down from September on "advice, spells, curses, hexing, conjuring, magic, prayers, blessing services, magic potions, [and] healing sessions".

Personally, I think it's past time that some of this foolishness gets taken off the sales rack.

Sweet though I must admit that I enjoyed the threads we got here because of them.

Well the hexes and spells are still "out there" - just not for sale on E-bay - so the discussions will continue no doubt.

If people want to go outside & play Harry Potter then who is ebay to stop them? Personally I think that if your dumb enough to buy that crap then you deserve to loose a couple of bucks. & if they're cracking down on this, then why don't they bring the hammer down on haunted items as well. I saw a haunted watercooler on ebay once... & someone spent $350 on it. Really?! Who's haunting the watercooler? Must be Jim from accounting. He always wanted to be part of the conversation. Poor Jim.

You're just jealous I got that watercooler and you didn't! ;)

Darn it. I was going to sell my magic weather rock. Its really awesome. It tells the weather...... No really it does. You see you leave it out on your door step. If it's darker color it's cloudy, if its wet it's raining, if it's got ice on it it's freeking cold. It actually works.

Coincidentally, I was looking at halloween candles on Ebay last night and they had wax poppets for sale. Last time I saw a wax poppet was in the Witchcraft museum in Cornwall.

Great, eBay is putting effort into banning people to buy spells and potions, if they are stupid enough to buy them let them. The effort used here would be constructively used if added the the efforts of banning people who sell fake items, they are the real scourge of the 'Bay.

I bet there be some clearance bargains before the dead line. Good time to get a soul in a bottle. I got some grave yard dirt and a snake skin if anyone is interested.

"Items where the value is placed on an intangible factor. For example, listings that offer someone's "soul" or a container that claims to have someone's "soul" are not allowed."

I bought someone's soul, only to find out it had already been sold to the devil. I really got burned (ba-dum-tiss)

I agree, as long as they cause no real harm, i.e poisonous, toxic etc... and are accompanied by appropriate buyer warnings, guarantees, no guarantees, warranties, no warranties, refunds, no refunds etc...

Back to black market love potion for me! :)

It's back to plying females with drink for me. *sigh* Which ain't cheap when the object of your affections is a middle-aged woman who (9 times out of 10) can drink like a fish and then demand a cab home instead of the bus, fgs.

OMG! Well I've just had a look on ebay for "Fluff's": 'Sexual Succubi' and I was in stitches!

This one made me laugh: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HAUNTED-SPANISH-QARINAH-SUCCUBUS-DJINN-VERY-SEXUAL-POWERFUL-BUY-2-GET-1-FREE-/110936698586?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19d457aeda

Buy two and get one free!

How many Sex Succubus/Djinn's does anyone need?

Have a look at the pictures of these 'spirits'?

And some guys are thinking "yeah, I'm gonna need three..... and some baby-oil"

LOL, At first I wondered it it was some euphemism for 'off ebay services'?
