eBay Puts a Stop to the Sale of Spells and Work From Home Information

Those of you in the need of a spell or potion are going to have to head to some place other than eBay from here on out.

The gigantic clearing house for just about anything your life known as eBay is going to be instituting some new rules as to what can be sold on the site.  If you were hoping to hope the online marketplace to pick up a hex for some scammer that called you, you’re just going to be out of luck.  The list of items banned from being sold on the online auction site will be updated to include the following list:

The following items are also being added to the prohibited items list: advice; spells; curses; hexing; conjuring; magic; prayers; blessing services; magic potions; healing sessions; work from home businesses & information; wholesale lists, and drop shop lists.

While eBay says it wants everyone to have a happy selling & buying experience on the site, apparently it’s just too difficult to judge if a curse has actually worked to the buyer’s satisfaction.

As for banning those “work from home businesses,” can we next work on getting those stupid signs removed from clogging up the sides of the road?
