just follow the rules? Huh? I sold a very nice guitar on eBay, with specific instructions on how to pay and where I would ship due to the rules. Alas, the high bidder chose not to follow the rules. So here I am, he has already paid, I do have access to the money, but do I ship? If I do, then I lose certain protections from crooks. If I don’t, I have to repeat the process.
