Also maybe try Craigslist...I'm checking L.A.'s site and I see some listed. I don't know if those will get pulled or not.

Not sure if it's worth it or not, but maybe try and Auction House?

Now that you can't even purchase these from ebay or Amazon - it's going to get tougher to find these in the open market.

I 100% agree with you. It's pretty funny what's acceptable and what's not. Their picking and choosing and that's not right.

Not sure what the end result will do with the ban from both Amazon and Ebay will be though. It could drive up that sales, since it will be harder to obtain, since there will be less ways to obtain them (shows etc.)... Or could drive prices down because it will make it harder for people to move the product.

Hell, you can sale nude statues easier on Ebay!

How many times have you had yours pulled? If you do - be the cheapest, don't play around.

You will be fine. You need to have the repeated violation multiple times. As long as your account is also in good standing - your good to go.

I am guessing that these will sell at shows and shops.

Unless you find another auction site online but then again even though we hate ebay fees I think they are cheap compared to regular auction sites.

Put mine back up as another auction, not relisted in case the item numbers were flagged before. Sold both of mine within 30 mins. Probably could've gotten more, but I'm already miles ahead profit wise.

Sucks man...I hate ebay! There's no seller protection! Does the buyer have to prove it's fake, i.e. how does he know it is fake?
