I described something 'as new'.
I have used the item once only, so I thought it was 'as new'. So what other terms can you no longer use?

Any kind of keyword spamming is not allowed.

had to laugh this morning when I came across a listing which stated in Big Letters *BRAND NEW - used once*

sixlostmonkeys, what is spamming??

I know that Ebay will not allow as new, because they say something is either is new or isn't.

People spam by saying their item is(for examply a phone)
Nokia, but Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericson etc as whenever someone searches for motorola, that item would come up.

Does that make sense?

Oh. So my listing is about to be removed then. I have bought loads of things that are 'as new'. How bizaare.

There are over 14,000 items on Ebay at the moment described as "as new". You have just been unlucky because someone reported you. How annoying.

I've just revised my listing in case. It now reads, 'Worn once so in the same condition as when it was bought.'

hmm Hope it still sells okay.
