I just sent a message to Brent through eBay to request that he blocks that bidder from all future auctions.

Thank you to the board, especially to Peter, Leon, and John for reaching out to us. This bidder has indeed been blocked.

Just for completeness I want to make sure everyone is aware that as the seller I am unable to see these statistics that general members of the eBay community see. When I click on a user ID I am taken to specifics about that individual because their ID is not hidden for us. I would actually prefer to see what you guys see.

Bid retractions remain a top priority for me in my work with eBay. I am very hopeful that meaningful changes to this eBay tool are coming this year. Until then, please continue to help us police the marketplace. It's very much appreciated.

Brent, PWCC Auctions

Not as Flamboyant as your unforgivin ebayite...
However, I do believe that he deserves some recognition
I'm going to have to guess that the bidder didn't know about ebay's bidding policy. He probably thought that if he bid $409 as his high bid the auction would have gone from $111 straight to $409. Hence the reason why he bid so much. He was afraid that he'd bid way too much. Even then, though, it doesn't excuse him from being an idiot.

Under the current policy it is very hard for an ebay user to be suspended for any buying/bidding policy violations regardless of the number of violations. Sellers on the other hand can get booted quite easily.

Easily fixed by using a different browser that you're not logged into eBay on, I believe. Or if you have bid retractions, you can have a staffer look them up from his/her account. Or send the auction to me and I'll look it up for you.

Or use Private Browsing in the same browser.

I'm not clear if there is a global setting for sellers to restrict bidders with X number of retractions. If there is not, I would agree that it would be impractical for any e-bay seller to check each individual bidder and their number of retractions. i'm not suggesting that.

However, IMHO, if there is a global setting, I'd prefer PWCC to restrict bidders who have more than 10 retractions. If that person really wanted to bid, they could call PWCC and plead their case for why they should be bidding with so many retractions.
