Of course that's a compromise (I'm sure it reduces the audience), and that may not work good enough in some countries, or for some type of sales (I've sold up to ~1700$, I think), but I think it's preferrable [where it works] to stop using eBay at all.
Regardless, this is serious though:
> Ebay has absolutely no interest in blocking these scammers.
When I tried to expose the "scammer", eBay was essentially not interested.
