Subject:  PI NOTICE: eBay Listing(s) Cancelled - Mature Audiences item listed in general categories
Dear *******,

We appreciate that you chose eBay to list the following item:

3521443253 HUMILIATED SLAVE stockings & spanking MAG
3521542591 T0RTURED MALE + SPANKING SPECTACLE 60's mag

However, your listing contained adult material that is inappropriate for eBay's general 
categories.  Because it is in violation of eBay's Mature Audiences guidelines, your listing has 
been ended early.  All associated fees have been credited to your account.

In determining whether an item should be in eBay's Mature Audience section instead of one of 
our general categories, we consider the overall content of the listing, including pictures and 
text.  For example, if an item description leads us to believe the content of the listing is 
adult in nature as defined by this policy, that item will be ended.  Please note that blocking 
the "risque" parts of an image will not exempt the item from these standards. 
 
Our Mature Audience policy also states, in part:
 
"'Adult' or 'sexually-oriented' material includes, but is not limited to: 
 
Any visual representation of human genitals presented in such a manner as to suggest sexual 
activity. 
Any visual representation of any form of sexual intercourse involving humans. 
Any materials which require that individuals be eighteen (18) or older (depending on the 
jurisdiction) to view or purchase those materials. 
Any materials clearly designed to sexually arouse the viewer/reader. 
Any items which, because of their nature or because of the item description, appear to be 
designed for use in sexual/adult activity. 
Any items which depict human sexual characteristics in a degrading fashion. 
Any item that portrays frontal nudity will normally be treated as "adult" material, with 
limited exceptions (see 'Can material containing nudity ever be listed outside the adult area?')
"

To ensure this relationship, we must respectfully ask that you abide by our listing guidelines 
and User Agreement in the future.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
