Illiteracy rears its ugly head on Ebay.

I love Ebay.

I love to surf around on Ebay. It's like a big store with lots of windows full of stuff. I love to buy and sell things on Ebay. On each of my listings I put this disclaimer:

"My PayPal account will not allow me to accept a credit card. Please do not try to pay with a credit card. I do not take credit cards. NO CREDIT CARDS. If you try to pay with a credit card it will be denied. PLEASE do not try to pay with a credit card. No credit cards. Your credit card WILL BE DENIED."

So. . . . was this too subtle?

Sixteen people tried to pay with a credit card anyway, just this week, and had it denied. I feel bad about that, but does anyone else suppose that if they had read carefully, it is just possible that this misunderstanding might have been avoided?

I still love Ebay, and I thank everyone who bids on my auctions. But please, people, READ THE DIRECTIONS.

Whenever I bid on someone's auction, I read all the instructions carefully. I don't think it's asking too much to expect everyone else to do the same.
