eBay textbook ban hurts homeschool teachers
Readers of my book The PayPal Wars realize that I'm often critical of eBay's management for being bureaucratic and out-of-touch. I think that's exactly what happened here. (And possibly some complaints from textbook publishers who would prefer to sell new books to homeschool teachers?) Regardless, it's a really bad move. eBay has gone from its original laissez faire approach of declaring itself "just a venue" to actively policing activity on its site -- beyond what even nosy government regulators could ask.
