Why would ebay cancel my listing and leave others that are similar?

I receive this e-mail this morning.

"Dear ********,

We appreciate that you chose eBay to list the following auction-style listing(s):

140136860296 - Rice Europa Double Horse Trailer

However, your listing was in breach of eBay's Inappropriate Seller Terms policy and has been removed from eBay. All fees related to this listing have been credited to your account. We also notified members who placed bids on the item that the listing has
been canceled.

We would like to take this opportunity to let you know what part of your listing is not permitted.

Your listing(s) contains the following information:

Please note I have this advertised elsewhere and reserve the right to remove the listing.

Any terms that contradict the eBay User Agreement or that inadvertently breach eBay listing policies are not permitted in listings.

The eBay User Agreement states that you may not fail to deliver items purchased from you, unless the buyer fails to meet the listing terms, or you cannot authenticate the buyer's identity.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you relist this, or any other item that breaches eBay policy, your eBay privileges could be suspended. We value you as a member of our community and wish to continue this relationship, so we must ask you to refrain from further breaches of the User Agreement and eBay policy."

I have looked at listings of similar items and at least 10 others state the same thing. Is it the way I have worded it or are the others just lucky to get away with it?

BTW it had no bids and I have a reserve price on it too.

yup - it's just down to (bad)luck - maybe someone selling a similar item reported yours to get rid of the competition
