Why eBay will no longer sell magic products



The debate about whether magic is real, or is it just a niche for enterprising charlatans, has been going on for decades. Nevertheless, the magical and occult business is booming, advertising the services of sorcerers, witches and fortune-tellers can be found both in print and on the Internet. Stores selling various occult goods also flourish.
In this regard, eBay was not an exception, where you could find a variety of magic products, from amulets and talismans to magic elixirs. But since September 2012, the practice of selling occult goods at auction seems to have come to an end. The administration of the service announced that from the beginning of autumn it would stop posting information about magic products and services. The sale of spells, curses, various potions, amulets and talismans was banned; it is now not allowed to offer magical services, including fortune telling.
The main reason for this decision was a large number of disputes between buyers and sellers of goods in this category. The eBay administration, tired of endlessly exploring relationships with both, decided to put an end to the practice of advertising magical goods. From now on it is prohibited to publish information about their sale, and the relevant sections of the auction will be deleted. All sellers of goods in this category are offered to sell them before the beginning of September or to withdraw offers for sale.
This decision by the eBay administration has caused controversial feedback. Some users are glad that sellers of such products will finally be able to block access to the auction. Others, on the contrary, are perplexed by the decision taken, since on eBay it was possible to find really interesting and sometimes very rare products. In addition, the restrictions imposed are considered by many as an attempt on freedom of religion - if some people believe in the efficacy of magic, then why are they forbidden to buy and sell religious goods corresponding to their faith?
Some visitors to the auction go even further, seeing in the decision a Christian conspiracy, the purpose of which is to expel representatives of other cults and beliefs from eBay.As evidence, they point out that the administration of the service did not prohibit the sale of holy water and other holy Christian objects and relics, and this is nothing more than discrimination based on religious grounds. Representatives of eBay do not comment on such statements, but make it clear that the decision will not be finalized and revised.
