Did anyone get this?
I've been using ebay since 2000, i have 100% positive feedback with a rating of 127,

They won't let me sell because my "shipping time is 3.9/5.0" because one time my internet was out for a while after i sold like 8 items, and i was real busy, so i didn't ship for 2 weeks, so now am I fucked here?

How am I supposed to improve my rating if I can't even sell more items, fuck you ebay!

Attention Sellers:

You are currently restricted from listing new items because your detailed seller ratings (DSRs) are below the minimum performance standard for sellers.

Sellers are required to maintain a rating of at least 4.1 on each DSR to sell on eBay. Sellers with one or more DSR below 4.1 will be restricted from listing until their DSRs improve. Additionally, sellers with one or more DSR below 4.3 may be subject to lowered standing in search results.

Although you won't be able to list items as long as your DSRs are below 4.1, you will still be able to complete any open transactions, access your account, bid or purchase items, and communicate with your trading partners.

If you are attempting to list a car, truck or other vehicle, you may do so by visiting eBay Motors directly at: motors.ebay.com

Please note that sellers who are not in good standing are not allowed to register new accounts. Also, another existing eBay account cannot be used to avoid buying and selling restrictions or other policy consequences.

You can find more information on the Seller Non-Performance Policy page or the FAQ page. Find out more information on how to improve your DSRs on the Seller Feedback page.

If it's any consolation, I have to think that this type of behavior is our best hope of seeing eBay (or at least its tyrannical policies) eventually put under. It's well and good to screw over sellers when there's an abundance, but the tanking economy can't be doing eBay any good. Perhaps it won't be long before eBay's not so eager to turn away business.
