The Ebay Lexicon: Feedback Scores and Your Reputation, This Will Go On Your "Permanent Record"!

I love Ebayspeak, namely the feedback section. For those of you who still hawk your wares on Ebay, you know what I'm talking about.

"For each transaction, buyers and sellers can rate each other by leaving Feedback. Feedback consists of a rating (positive, negative, or neutral), and a short comment. These ratings are used to determine Feedback Scores. "

And just as we've adapted to the new situations all these social networking sites have posed us to deal with, there is Ebayspeak, too, and it has become part of the modern lexicon. Words and terms that simply did not exist in those dark years before the dawn of Ebay.

I dunno, maybe I'm weird but I can read these feedbacks all day. I find them truly hysterical. I've emboldened and italicised the things I find particularly hysterical so you can follow along at home.

"Great Buyer. An asset to Ebay. Pleasure to do business with. A++++++"


"As described, well packed, quick shipped. Thanks!"

"Fast Payment - Smooth Transaction - GREAT eBayer AAAA++++"
