Strange eBay Messages - eBay Listing Removed
Does anybody understand this strange eBay message.
It took three readings and about ten minutes for us to work out what it meant.
We have learnt to be, and now expect to be, bemused by many of eBay's announcements and messages. They are often ambiguous, and open to numerous different interpretations.  Are they written by real people?
Here is one we will share with you:

Subject:     eBay Listing Removed: No Item (=LS &12362 JM70822122)     Received:     14-Sep-06
    From:     eBay Customer Support     Expires:     13-Nov-06
Dear chardcoins,

We appreciate that you chose eBay to list the following guide(s):

However, your listing was in breach of eBay's No Item policy and has been removed from eBay.
We would like to take this opportunity to let you know what part of your listing is not permitted.

Your listing(s) contains the following information:

Listings that either do not offer an actual item for sale, or offer an intangible, non-service item such as a ghost, soul or spirit, are not allowed. Our User Agreement states, in part: ""5.1 Listing Description...Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures and other content relevant to the sale of that item..."" Your listing(s) either did not offer an item for sale, offered an intangible, non-service item or an item the existence of which cannot be verified.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you relist this, or any other item that breaches eBay policy, your eBay privileges could be suspended. We value you as a member of our community and wish to continue this relationship, so we must ask you to refrain from further breaches of the User Agreement and eBay policy.
