EBay takes action against 'hoax' Live 8 bidders

Have you seen this? Is Ebay kidding?

I ranted about the number of Lance Armstrong Live Strong bracelets on Ebay almost a year ago. And now we have people trying to use Ebay to make money on yet another cause-related thing. So, first Ebay lets these vultures use their service to uncut this cause. Very Bad. And, now they are 'taking action' against those that are doing what they refused. Yikes!

Ebay -- wake up. You need to draw a line somewhere and undercutting and profiteering from causes and charieties and the good works of others is a good place to do it.
