I leave 4 stars generally, if the trade has gone 'as expected'. If the
seller has gone an extra mile in one way or the other, they might get a
five.

In that case please be sure never to buy from me - if you wouldn't mind
posting your EBay ID so I (and other sellers in this group) can add you to
our blocked bidder lists it would also be appreciated.

Agreed. I'd also not sell to the OP and would wish to add him to my blocked
bidder list.

This looks to me like a troll.
The regulars point out an obvious problem with ebay's procedures and a new
poster says this , knowing that it will get a reaction
