It had to happen. A hacked-off eBay punter has registered his dissatisfaction in eBay's decision to increase in "seller fees" in the UK by flogging "boycottebay.co.uk" on the auction site.

Paul Jackson from Guildford writes: "With eBay using the inclusion of VAT on its sellers fees in the European Union, to unfairly raise its own fees, this domain could be much sought after (maybe).

"Ebay should be made aware that it has several excellent competitors and that sellers such as myself, will be defecting to them," he wrote.

Paul reckons that eBay will pull the auction once they get wind of his protest - so he's made a copy of it here. ®
