I had something similar happen last spring, and even calling eBay isn't a sure bet. Representative (multiple reps, actually) then let it stand because it was the buyers opinion. I brought it up to another rep a few months ago, and they agreed with me, but said that it couldn't be removed because the feedback had been left over 90 days prior.
I used to ask the thrift gods for Barbour, vicuña, etc before going thrifting. Lately I've changed to just asking for some eBay fodder and maybe something cool that I haven't seen before, if they feel generous.
All hail the thrift gods.
