eBay says Squeaking Policeman's Truncheon is illegal weapon
As well as striving to satisfy the nation's lust for sex toys on Lovehoney, we run a hen party Web site called Hen Night HQ. We sell a massive range of boppers, boas, outfits and accessories for girls to wear on their hen nights on the Web and through the Hen Night HQ eBay store.
Except that eBay has just taken exception to this most innocent of squeaky accessories, banning our listing of the product because it "because it breaches our Firearms, Weapons, and Knives policy."
eBay goes on to say: "Since buying and selling weapons is highly regulated in the UK and Ireland, and may harm eBay and its members, you're not allowed to list weapons on eBay."
Oh well, they've only got a few dozen more to take down…
