This would be the point at which most people would have shared that
information......

You can block zero feedback buyers who have not confirmed their account by
registering a credit card against it, perhaps this is what the OP is
referring to?

Quite. So, I'll share what I found.

http://pages.ebay.co.uk/help/sell/buyer-requirements.html

is mildly useful but not that specific.

However, if one then follows through properly, and looks at who you can
block, it is ONLY buyers with a TOTAL negative feedback, namely below a
choice of -1, -2 or -3.

It may be that Mike is confusing that with the fact that you can block
people from bidding on multiple items and that can be based on low feedback.
So, if someone with feedback of 5, say, bids on ten items, they get blocked
from the eleventh.

It would be interesting to see what EBay's reply says. I suspect they're
equally confused.

I won't, because had you been paying attention, you would have known
that I received it in the form of an email.
