I agree with all your points, very,very anti-seller and open to serious misuse.

But I am thinking about buying an etching (from a dishonest seller, unlike most sellers who accept PayPal) and destroying it with my money back from PayPal

Like just about every collectable, violins are subject to fakery and claims of fakery – something that a person claiming to be a seller on the site alleges has led to the destruction of what the poster claims was a $2,500 instrument in a PayPal dispute. According to a post on the blog Regretsy the violin was smashed in accordance with PayPal’s terms and conditions. “I sold an old French violin to a buyer in Canada, and the buyer disputed the label,” the poster alleges. Although label disputes in the violin trade aren’t uncommon, the post says, “PayPal made the buyer DESTROY the violin in order to get his money back. They somehow deemed the violin as “counterfeit” even though there is no such thing in the violin world.” And yes, that’s what the PayPal T&C document says: if there’s a dispute over whether an item is authentic, “PayPal may require” the buyer “to destroy the item and provide evidence of its destruction” – in this case leaving the seller not only out-of-pocket, but also without a violin she claims “made it through WWII”.

It is surprising reading this that eBay's policy on fake items is to ignore them, I'd love to have seen certain items (such as False-Copyright etchings) being destroyed.

I have seen all kinds of descriptions of 120 wonderful years since the Professor was born, but surely today would not be his Eleventy-tenth birthday but his twelvety birthday

Happy Birthday

Tolkien Collector #32

The latest issue of our occasional magazine, The Tolkien Collector, went out to subscribers just before New Year’s. Those whose subscriptions end with no. 32 will find enclosed a notice to that effect. In addition to the usual sections on new books by and about Tolkien, new translations of Tolkien’s works, and miscellaneous items, Tolkien Collector 32 includes a feature article by David Bratman, ‘A Tolkien Classification System’, describing how David organizes his Tolkien collection. (How do you organize yours?) As usual, we’ve issued The Tolkien Collector more ‘occasionally’ than we’d like, and will try to make it more than an annual publication in 2012. Happy Tolkien’s birthday!

If we had a worst binding thread, this one would be a contender.
