    Check here. :)

    Some of my faves:

    Praise: When I open boxes of cereal, you should be inside. Yes, you're THAT GOOD!

    Praise: Very HIGH QUALITY preserved cancer tumors. I ate them. I know it was wrong.

    Praise: Tub o jelly. 12 gallon belly. Greasy layers, oh so smelly. SEXUALLY ENTICING.

    Praise: Has intestinal FORTITUDE!!! Eats PORTIONED meals!!! Enjoys NOURISHMENT!!!

    Praise: Best seller on Ebay! In fact, this experience made me want to put down my gun.

    These are great!

    It's amazing how our society is changing. A decade ago, if you would have said "eBay Feedback" - you would have gotten blank stares. Also, relative anonymity on the web allows people to be funnier and more honest (at least open).

    Those really don't help future buyers or sellers from getting a well rounded idea if they should do business with that person or not. You're wasting the feedback oppurtunity and not helping anyone who deals with that person in the future.

    Thanks! :)

    Oh yeah, it's so fun to try and build up a respectable rating, only to wake up one day and find one or two of these retarded comments in your feedback.

    What a dork.

    How about, "Many people do business on eBay to make a living?"

    I know two people who take their feedback very seriously. One is in a lawsuit over someone who gave him false feedback because it hurts his ability to do business and cost him several documented transactions. True, these are meant in good fun, but eBay is business.

    i think ebay better worry about the scam artists that exploit their system before they say word one to someone who's making a joke.

    what's wrong with a "feedback removal petition"? obviously these are jokes, if someone cares that much, give them a way to remove it.

    you can appeal to have feedback removed but it takes a few days and they don't make any promises unless its vuglar or gives out personal information.

    Yes, I can say alot, and obviously you like to hear your self talk a lot too. A wet blanket would be used by a person of younger years lacking wisdom as well as common sense, kind of similar to the type of person would misuse the feedback on ebay.
