I saw someone saying that ebay ratings could be bought.... can't always trust ebay ratings.
yeah they can.
Alot of the .01 free shiping items are just for that. Most of the time its done by a chinese reshiper who uses the feedback on the millions of small items to boost their rank. I have gotten a few items off ebay with notes insides that say "Please leave only 5 star feedback as....blah blah". I just dont bother then.
