Posted on 08/18/2012 2:13:37 PM PDT by Joseph Harrolds
Looking a for a spell that will make your partner lust for you and only you? Or a black magic revenge incantation to curse your enemy? Or maybe a good old-fashioned $51 demon-obliterating potion that promises to destroy heavy demonic energies, entities, beings and forces is all you need.
...Beginning Aug.30, the online auction site will ban the sale of curses, spells, hexes, magic, prayers, blessing services, magic potions, healing sessions and more.
Perhaps its the intangibility of hexes and curses that makes them tough to host. EBay regularly reviews categories and updates our policies based on customer feedback, a statement from the company read. We are discontinuing a small number of categories within the larger metaphysical subcategory, as buyers and sellers have told us that transactions in these categories often result in issues that can be difficult to resolve.
But the ban on magic potions and curses has some users up in arms. One, writing on the eBay forum, even called the ban discriminatory.
Disgusted wrote: Ebay bans alternative religious items. But! Not for Christians. Holy water and other sundry holy items are discriminately allowed. Hm. Let me get this straight. Some guy in Rome wearing long robes can wave his hand over some water and imbue it with something, and then its very powerful? How is that different from any other magical item previously sold on ebay?
And last week a petition titled Dont Ban Our Psychics, which has collected more than 800 signatures so far, went up online: Ebay dont ban our metaphysical services! Fight for the psychics and the Tarot readers, the witches, wiccans, pagans, new age, healers, blessings, spells, voodoo, items of magic and most of all our clients and friends!

Dang. First guns, then this...What’s next?
So now the muslims don’t have to worry about the magic and djinns available on ebay anymore?
Only 12 days left to get your Voo-Doo on /sarc
No more Screaming Jay Hawkins records then...
Can I still buy a tortilla with Jesus on it or a potato chip that looks like Ronald Reagan?
So much for selling my 4,6,8,10,12 and 20 sided dice.
I paid $59 for a tincture of dragonfly and I STILL suffer from psoriasis. Way overpriced. Will not buy from again. Seller refuses to answer my emails and telepathy.
Dang it! Where am I supposed to get my eye of newt and wing of bat from now on?
(one can bid on holy water on ebay? Seriously or is this guy joking?)
You can always go to LuckyMojo.com for all your HooDoo needs.
“While magic and the occult are sheer nonsense, that doesn’t keep naive people who believe in such superstitions from relying on them for better health, wealth, etc.”
I guess the Bible is wrong about Witches and Demons and such then.
I guess that means no more 6-demon bags....
Was Madame Rue on EBay?
So if you wanted to sell your gambling luck or weather-control juju, you can’t do it on eBay.
I once took both at the same time and was unable to blink my eyes for several days from being stretched so tight.
You'd think they'd have seen this coming.
As far as I can tell, yes. I see no reason to believe in demons or magic. I recognize that some people still do believe in that sort of thing, although I think it's safe to say that such beliefs are waning in society as a whole.
Actually, Ebay's policies regarding guns have eased up recently. While you still can't sell guns or ammo on Ebay, you can now sell virtually any gun part...except for those which are used on "assault" weapons. They're still considered eeeeevil by Ebay.
