eBay bans the sale of military goods to international buyers

I just tried to buy a pair of ess goggles. I presume we're listed inthe military section. And eBay stopped me. They do not allow the sale of military goods internationally.

Anyone seen that error before?

They just block some stuff based on retarded reasons. I tried to buy a set of (new) cold weather underwear and they told me it was forbidden for sale in my country LOL

Yeah I email the seller and deal privately, thereby screwing eGay out of their commission.

No one gets in the way of my gear addiction.

The best rejection letter I ever got from Ebay read "It is against Ebay policy to sell anything that was at ground zero of a nuclear blast". fuckers

What do you have that was at ground zero of a nuclear blast?

I have a chunk of Hiroshima rubble picked up shortly after the bombing (serious)

I had about a pound of trinitite which is fused sand from ground zero of the very first atomic bomb test. I still have about 100 grams of it.

Some guy in France is hawking it on Ebay right now. I may give it another shot on Ebay in the next few days, even if it's just to fuck with their moderators. It's now illegal to collect the stuff from the site of the blast so what ever is out there is all there will be. The gov't bulldozed over most of and only open the site once a year to tourists if I am not mistaken.

Strange enough Ebay had no problem what so ever with me selling kilos of uranium ore that made a geiger counter sound like standing under a tin roof during monsoon. The U.S. gov't however did have a problem with me shipping it into the U.S. My basement was a hotzone for a few years and I am the only person I know to of ever experienced radiation burns too! (aside from sunburns)

I used to be a huge ebayer, but now I buy most of my stuff off amazon. Not sure if you can get uranium ore... but 3.99 next day shipping sort of makes up for it
