EBay Bans Magic Potions, Curses, Spells

ht ebay potion 120816 main EBay Bans Magic Potions, Curses, Spells

EBay to  soon ban the sale of curses and spells. (Credit: Ebay)

Looking a for a spell that will make your partner lust for you and only you? Or a black magic revenge incantation to curse your enemy? Or maybe a good old-fashioned $51 demon-obliterating potion that promises to “destroy heavy demonic energies, entities, beings and forces” is all you need.

Come September, though, you’ll no longer find these quick fixes on eBay. Beginning Aug.30, the online auction site will ban the sale of curses, spells, hexes, magic, prayers, blessing services, magic potions, healing sessions and more.

Perhaps it’s the intangibility of hexes and curses that makes them tough to host. “EBay regularly reviews categories and updates our policies based on customer feedback,” a statement from the company read. “We are discontinuing a small number of categories within the larger metaphysical subcategory, as buyers and sellers have told us that transactions in these categories often result in issues that can be difficult to resolve.”

Ebay, which  owns PayPal,  is one of the largest auction websites that offers peer-to-peer sales.  Last month, the San Jose, Calif., company announced strong second quarter growth: Revenue for the quarter ending June 30, 2012, increased 23 percent  to $3.4 billion, compared with the same period the previous year.

The company, whose market cap is more than $58 billion, still has a ton of unusual offerings, ban or no ban on the occult.  For $3.5 million, a Florida man is selling the “American Dream,” which  includes everything he owns. And  a glob of glue that looks like Homer Simpson’s face went for more than $200,000 last January.

But the ban on magic potions and curses has some users up in arms.  One, writing on the eBay forum,  even called the ban discriminatory.

“Disgusted” wrote: “Ebay bans alternative religious items. But! Not for Christians. Holy water and other sundry ‘holy’ items are discriminately allowed. … Hm. Let me get this straight. Some guy in Rome wearing long robes can wave his hand over some water and imbue it with something, and then it’s very ‘powerful?’ How is that different from any other magical item previously sold on ebay?…”

And last week  a petition titled “Don’t Ban Our Psychics,” which has collected more than 800 signatures so far, went up online:   ”Ebay don’t ban our metaphysical services! Fight for the psychics and the Tarot readers, the witches, wiccans, pagans, new age, healers, blessings, spells, voodoo, items of magic and most of all our clients and friends!”

The question remains: Despite the ban, will you still be able to sell your soul on eBay, as graduate student Hemant Mehta, an atheist, did in 2006?

I saw that when the story broke and was pretty pissed that I didn't know people were buying "potions." We could of made a killing. If there's time left, I say we piss in some bottles and sell it as "Demon Begone!" Not to be taken internally the label would caution, but the dumbshits would probably drink it anyway.

Could could simply put water with food coloring in case some idiots do drink it. Or we could start selling holy water!!

Why not? Holy water blessed by god's missus whose name is " Asherah" who was a powerful fertility goddess.

How simple. Marry a doctor or win lotto potions. If I was them I'd say no returns.

"Marry a doctor" potion??? Is this the 21st century? Seriously? The returns accepted within 14 days crack me up. Are you suppose to marry a doctor within 14 days or your money back?

Piss. It's sterile, renewable and deserved. Anyone want to join my new venture in raping stupid?

Bad Neal. Rape is the wrong word, conning more appropriate.
