witchcraft on Ebay - that's a new one - at least to me!

That sounds like all kinds of wrong....what I mean is...banning this ---what happened to freedoms of religion? Or otherwise the civil rights? Not fair if you want my opinion. What next? Banning the sale of religious cards you send?

Thanks for leaving a nice comment on my Bird Blog ....I'd Rather B Birdin'.

I never would have known that these things are banned. Thanks for the information.

In so many areas ban is being imposed, now it is Ebay turn. Some area ban is unnecessary like healing sessions, Reiki, digital arts, recipes, advice, blessings.

EBay has done well to get rid of genie magic. And kudos to it for escaping artistically out of it.
Good luck!!

Anni, EBay is a private organization and thus are EXPRESSING their freedom of speech by NOT allowing these kinds of products.
