Looking for somewhere to rant about EBay

I posted this:

The user startfitness-outlet I recently purchased from them item ID 232077140691

A pair of Gore Element cycling gloves. Now the gloves show up in my purchase history, as "unpaid." This is wrong: I have paid via PayPal. I look and there's a box, "View PayPal Transaction." I click on the box, and takes me to a blank error page.

I check my PayPal account, and it shows the transaction of the gloves, as well as a transaction that is a refunded amount.

I then try to purchase another type of glove, item ID 361722052873

I hit the "Buy Now" box, after selecting my size (M). Nothing happens.

So I contact the seller about this.

I then receive this reply:

"startfitness-outlet is out of the office

2018! What's going on here?

And get banned for it: naming and shaming. Why can't a mod see the context in the post?

First of all, it's a SPECIFIC user that won't take me past the "buy now," so I HAVE to "name and shame."

And a specific user when it came to contacting them. I think being banned on EBay is a right of passage on the Interblag...

I forgot to mention in the post, that I had also tried using their home site, and it still doesn't allow payments from me through PayPal.

I mean I am being idiot, for expecting it to be simple through a community support outlet, and that I had to "send privately" my gripe. But I wanted other users of the site to confirm PayPal not working for this seller.
