Fascist book banning eBay thugs take aim at home schoolers

OK, we all knew eBay managment were a bunch of left wing moonbats, but this is going too far -- this is a Stalinist approach to enforcing your political views on the public.

I think its time to boycott eBay.

[update] Any outfit that allows a fighter plane to be sold, but bans selling textbooks has a seriously skewed moral compass.[/update]

A new policy by Internet trading behemoth eBay that bans homeschool teachers' texts from its auctions is prompting a tirade of complaints from the company's faithful customers...

..."As you may know, eBay does not permit items that are illegal, dangerous, offensive, or potentially infringing. Additionally, eBay has just recently made the decision to prohibit the sale of Teacher's Editions of textbooks and solutions manuals that are intended solely for use by teachers. Since eBay strives to be a level-playing field, all Teacher's Edition textbooks, manuals and guides will be covered under this policy. Unfortunately, home schooling Teacher's Editions are not exempt from this policy and this policy will apply to all grade levels."

The company continued that those products often contain "special answer keys, exams, teaching tips, and guides."
