Auction site eBay has asked a federal judge to bar a Chicago man from its web site as it claims he's ignored their own attempts to bounce him.

eBay says Braxton Anderson, under his own name and various aliases, has been using foul and abusive language on its site. CNN reports that eBay has terminated 40 to 45 of Anderson's accounts to try and stop him but he is still rejoining under different identities.

eBay wants 33-year-old Anderson banned for life. The judge is taking until Monday to consider the petition.

Anderson told the Chicago Sun-Times that he was being singled out by a group of eBay customers and that he had already said he wouldn't return to the site. ®
