That is disapointing. Other than morbid curiosity : I don't think I'd eally fancy surfing around an adult catagory of used undergarments trying to fish out gently used dipes. Where's the barf smiley? Alot of that underwear just isn't worn...it's been...well use your imagination, and then not washed.

They spelled hygiene wrong

Up to 2862.

I just did a search for FB and only came up with THREE auctions for used, and all were listed under new, but then the seller noted that they were used in the auction. I have a vested interest in this because I plan on selling my stash of FB in a couple of years.

Yes I am still dying of curiousity over here! :

at least two auctions foe well loved/used dipes were cancelled by ebay today. Fuzzi Bunz seem to be good items to watch to see this "policy" in action.

dipes and undies have vastly different purposes and cleaning regimes!

eBay's competition

iOffer.com is eBay's #1 competitor. They are a negotiation site rather than an auction site. You deal with the seller and then come to an agreement on the price and not get outbid at the last second. I just spoke with the company and they said that cloth diaper sales were welcome. I know that when I go to sell my stash, I am going there.

and I thought I was being a little over-planning when I bought all those FBs at only 4 months into my pregnancy. Good thing I did, but now my grand ideas of what to do with them when I'm done are thwarted. I signed that thing---and noticed that one of the signers actually was anti-used cloth diapers in the comment. hahaha. Why would anyone be that stupid?

Um, yeah -- Why did "M Laing" sign the petition?

I scanned the posts but didn't see this mentioned...

Anyone who uses a CD service is using used dipes, right? I mean, you don't always get your same dipes back, do you? My mom used a service for us and she doesn't think so. Doesn't Ebay know this? So used dipes are socially/cuturally acceptable and always have been!

Signed #2895!

This answers my question then, this issue has NOT been resolved.

They didn't bother to read anything? They thought it was an anti-CD petition?

As of 2/28 ebay now specifically lists cloth diapers under their prohibited listing items "used Underwear including but not limited to boxers.....athletic supporters and cloth diapers" html://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/used-clothing.html Click on Additional information.

Just read the whole page and I'm very discouraged.

I have signed as well as passed the link on to others. I cannot believe this, I was getting ready to list 27 small, 36 medium, 24 petite toddler and 32 large fuzzi bunz tomorrow morning. I had the pictures ready and everything. Does anyone know of anywhere else I can attempt to sell them? ioffer.com is currently having upgrade issues, but hopefully they will be resolved soon. I think this is completely ubsurd.

I just clicked on an ebay auction and it had a big "MODIFIED" over it and then an explanation that used diapers are not allowed so the posting was deleted. I am so bummed, I am going to sign right now.

3153 signitures now!
post #98 of 199
That's insane!

Signed it. I hope we are "heard".
post #99 of 199
I just signed!
post #100 of 199
I just signed. that is ridiculous. 3, 164 siggies it said

I could not have afforded it had it not been for used! Some I got second hand from a laundry service! then I sold most on again.

Though many parenting forums in the UK have a buy and sell area for diapers and they bustle, plus no selling fees!
