One buyer in the past year claimed the guy sold him a sealed LP that was "unplayable". Could mean it was warped...could mean it was re-wrapped. My guy offered a partial refund as remedy.
The problem with eBay's feedback system is that it's been defanged to the point that it really means very little. With eBay's moderation system, it appears that it is really difficult to get negative feedback to stick or sometimes be allowed at all. It used to mean a lot more to have all positive feedback.
Once upon a time, I would have folded to this kind of thing just to preserve our perfect feedback. I suspect a lot of that goes on too and is invisible in feedback. I don't depend on eBay for my livelihood the way I used to, and I'm at a point in my life where I've had enough of con games and extortion to just say "enough". I'm tired of having my money sucked away by vampires.
Thanks for the replies.
