Just looked into my e bay account settings.
It only allows to block -1 or below, but not 0.
So looks like Fran is right.

Thanks Raj. I did wonder if EBay had actually changed it, hence the query.

zero f/b to start. If EBay really wanted to protect sellers they'd go for a
more Amazon type model, imo.
