We as buyers are concerned with the planned changes to not allow sellers to leave feedback other than positive. We believe that this policy will:
1) Create a hostile environment for buyers and sellers 2) Create an environment that many good honest and established sellers will leave due to their inability to properly defend themselves against a) buyers that defraud them of their goods b) demand partial or full refunds c) demand that feedback be left for them immediately taking away from the voluntary nature of feedback d) diminishing the buyer contact with seller to work out problems prior to claims and feedback 3) Overall it will not protect us from the many poor sellers that have and will continue to create a difficult buying environment 4) Create an environment that new buyers will have limited access to quality sellers.
Please reconsider immediately-we do not need protection from the many honest sellers that will leave the venue. You as a corporation need to better police problems sellers. To make a general policy that sellers can only leave positve feedback, hurts the finest and supports the poorest of sellers.
