    (FORTUNE Small Business) -- Activists opposed to eBay's (EBAY, Fortune 500) upcoming fee and policy changes are readying for a weeklong site boycott starting on Monday, with buyers and sellers waiting to see if this strike will succeed where past protests have failed.

    The boycott, planned to run Feb. 19 - 25, is scheduled to overlap eBay's Feb. 20 rollout of significant changes announced last month.

    dang no mention of the fact now that sellers may leave only positive feedback
    or none at all while buyer can leave positive, negative or neutral. Which affects anyone
    who sells on ebay and leaves sellers wabbleing at gunpoint to the buyers. AS they have
    no recouse to a bad buyer. But to bend over backwards to unreasonable demands, or
    get negitive feedback.

    It's the BS sellers who give buyers a negative just because they received one which was deserved (product is different than advertised, damaged, etc). As was posted by many users in the forum at CNN once the buyer pays for the product their obligation is complete.

    EBay them self says this is a very small problem that effects few users.
    then why are they bowing to the few?

    Well If you where leave a seller a bad feedback after demanding say a free shipping
    upgrade to say overnight from ground? or shipping outside the auction terms and
    are suppized when they leave a negative in return ater yours. People do this crap.
    unreasonable ddemends. Get cocky with the seller, seller now can bend over and
    take it or get negative feedback.

    TOTALLY unfair to anyone who sells.
    who can say hey wonderfull guy to do bussiness with or NOTHING
