Here's the user agreement:
Which section or provision are you claiming would be violated? I don't
see anything applicable, but perhaps I skimmed it too quickly.

Lied to eBay about *what*?

I don't. If we knew that Ford was only going to build three Excursions
in 2005, and that you, Joe, Fred and I each wanted one, it wouldn't be
unethical for me to choose not to buy one, even knowing that the
25% drop in demand would reduce the amount of money Ford could expect
to receive per car (theoretically, in an efficient market). I don't see
how the fact that it's an auction makes any difference.
