Gunbroker says their auctions are legally binding agreements.

Ok, if that is the case, why do they allow buyers to force sellers to combine multiple auctions to get a cheaper price, or they will leave sevearal negative feedbacks defaming the seller.

Gunbroker allows defaiming and liable on their feedback all the time!

In fact, I have had buyers who left me negative feedback, that wanted to remove it,and gunbroker didnt allow it!

Gunbroker picks and chooses who leaves feedback,and it is not even close to being fair.

Their feedback system is retaliatory by design, yet they say retaliatory feedback isn't allowed.

They allow it all the time.

If the auctions are legally binding, which I assume they are, then how can gunbroker legally dictate what a buyer and seller does. I would think if it was a legal contrat, then for a legal dispute it would have to be handled in a court of law.

Basically gunbroker creates their own laws for their auctions in my opinion. They make a decision, and allow one person to liable and defame the other in feedback, block the other person from defending himself/herself, and it happens all the time, it seems to be their policy!

Thier feedback system requires a comment. You cant just leave an A,B,C,D,F. It promotes buyers who dont honor the auction terms to use feedback as an extortion tool to blackmale sellers to do wht they want. its a huge problem!

If feedback is so immportant, then why doesnt gunbroker allow feedback to be left on gunbroker itself for each auction, so the public knows really what gunbroker does all day every day.

I bet if gunbroker allowed feedback on gunbroker for every auction, they would get hundreds of negative feedback every day.

Why, because their customer service is non existant.

The only time I was ever allowed to talk to a gunbroker employee, was over a ripoff reprot complaint I made agianst them.

Gunbroekrs response was basically, if you leave bad feedback on us, it only hurts yourself and your sales.

Well if that was true, then why do they even allow feedback, if its so bad?

If feedback is inherantly good, then feedback should be allowed to be left on how gunbroker handled the auction itself ,for every auction, by buyer and seller.

Then and only then, would the public ever know how gunbroekr conducts itself.

They would no longer be able to get away with deleting honest feedback,and allowing defamatory feedback.

They would have to start blocking illegal bids, which they allow intentionally! I ahve had hundreds of illegal bids on my items, and gunbroekr refuses to do anythign to block them! example, I sell high capacity magazines, taht are legal where I conduct business but illegal to ship to California. Why does gunbroker allow illegal bids? Becasue they make money, that is why!

they deliberately make the process to get a refund for illegal bids to be difficult and time consuming. they make you wait seveeral days before you can even request a refund for an illegal bid. It should be imediate! 

I dont think its legal for gunbroker to dictate contract law, and make itself the judge of those contracts. I dont know how that possibly can be legal. Gunbroker has inserted iteslf in several of my auctions dictating what Imust do. I thought only a court of law can do that legally.

Its a mess. example.  Buyers will buy several auctions then want to combine them together. thousands of people do it.

sounds ok to most, but how can that possibly be legal?? If you have 10 separate auctions each its own legally binding agreement, if you combined them all together, a new agreement would ahve to be made and agreed to by both parties, spcifically replacing all previous agreements. that is the way it works legally.

The way it works on gunbroker is  many buyers force sellers to combine auctions against their will, under threat of negative feedback. Its a huge problem.

In fact many gunbroker memebers assume you combine auctions. Its so common its  standard procedure for manybuyers and sellers.

If its legal, which it isnt, then why doesnt the gunbroker checkout system allow it? Becasue if it did, support it officially, then legal action could be taken agaisnt them.  example, lets say I ahd 10 auctions all purchased by the same person with specific shipping charges,a nd the buyer wants to combine them all into a cheaer shipping price/ that right there defeats the entire purpose of the auction. the auction itself is a legally binding agreement. For it to be negotiated after the fact, is very time consuming, and really needs to be handled by lawyers! So its expensive to do it properly


Another huge problem is, many people dont even read auction terms and descriptions.  So they bid without knowing  the details and terms! So they blackmale the seller into doing what they want or they leave bad feedback. It happens all the time! Gunbroker doesnt enforce the so called legally binding agreements at all, they allow feedback when buyers break the agreements and gunbroekr knows it,,and allows defaming and liable feedback.

If its good for feedback to be left for every auction, then its just as good to report it here how gunbroekr handles its end of the deal too!
