Sorry, eBay, but this is not good enough. “no longer guaranteed”? You’re messing with people’s livelihoods here, so please, have the decency to at least make a definite decision, inform them immediately what that decision is, and let them get on with trying to make money via your site. This kind of messing about doesn’t do anyone any good.
