am i the only one this bothers....

Thread Starter 
i go on ebay and search "Kiton" and there are maybe 60 kiton items but there are 120 matching searches b/c someone is selling an oxxford suit and put "kiton" in the title. i remember not too long ago ebay cancelled about 60 auctions b/c i'd inadvertently put something like loro piana in the listing itself, when i normally put L*ro Piana, yet when i emailed them about this obvious flouting of their rules, their response was: "compile a list of the auctions and send them to us and we'll work on it" i guess that's the added service they talk about when their fees went up 75%.

It bothers me when it is used in an auction that is an obvious search term. In other words, Oxxford isn't obscure and doesn't need Kiton to get hits. But I don't mind if someone uses "like Lorenzini" in an auction for a Truzzi Milano shirt, or "like Borrelli" in a Barba shirt auction. What sucks is that Ebay doesn't distinguish.

It bothers me too. It really makes the searching more difficult and time consuming.

I disagree. Some of the best items, I've bought off ebay were listed this way. It seems annoying, but the none-brandname stuff that's listed this way still sells for way lower, and I wouldn't have found it if they hadn't used this trick. It's way of getting around the annoying fact that there aren't all that many searching beyond brandname searches that one can do on ebay.
