Naw, but I know what you mean. I had a guy who did the checkout procedure and everything for a 99 cent auction. His PayPal shipment did not go through, so I emailed him politely and never got another peep.
Had to wait 10 days to file the "non-paying bidder" thing. Then, about two weeks after that, I got an email from him stating that he now will be paying via Money Order.. his original PayPal payment didn't work because he didn't have money, etc, etc.
Roughly six weeks after the auction closed, I finally received a Money Order for the S/H amount plus the .99 cents.
Two things: it took me six weeks to make 99 cents. Also felt bad that if someone is REALLY that strung up for cash, they probably shouldn't be on eBay buying Archie Comics from me for 99 cents.

Inflated shipping doesn't bother me because I bid based on the total I'm willing to pay including the shipping. To me, the seller that charges $8 to ship a $10 figure will only get a bid of $2. I also don't care about feedback or the fees, but that's because I only use EBay to buy - I try to sell only through the boards.
Here's my biggie, and I can't believe no one has said this yet:
People who try to sell a toy, along with a box, and list it as MIB (or even worse, MISB). It's not MIB, it's a frigging LOOSE TOY WITH IT'S BOX!!!!
Here are my others:
Having to slog through hundreds of listings that say "AFA" or "25th" when the item isn't.
Sellers who put "mint" or "complete" in the auction title, then in the 'fine print' they start listing the damaged and/or missing parts....or you look at the picture and see accessory pack weapons.
People who use other people's pictures, or in any way send me something that isn't the exact item in the picture on the auction.
Being sniped. I know it's part of the game and it's not EBay's (or anyone's really) fault, but dang - it's frustrating.
Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug.....

People who have an extra account to shill bid their items' price up. They see you put a high bid, then bid it up a dollar at a time until they reach your high bid, then retarct the last bid...and bamm...you will pay every cent of what you set your high bid at, instad of way less because nobody will bid too high.
People will say "then why did you bid so high not willing to pay what you bid?"...
Then you get a second chance offer 1 minute after the auction ends if they don't know how to do it right. lol, jerks.

Unless it's a BIN that I can live with, I snipe just about everything I buy on eBay. I've gotten into a pissing contest with another bidder before, and all I did was drive the price up on myself.

Are you saying that you know how to "do it right"? lol
One other thing that bothers me......why don't buyers pay the final value fee? Real auction houses charge the buyer a fee, why is it the seller gets stuck with all of it?
Lower my fees and pass on some of the share with the buyers.

I sold my iphone with buy it now, it sold in ten minutes to a guy in Nigeria. I recieved what looked like a payment confirmation from paypal, it looked totally legit except for a few grammatical errors in the fine print. The email stated that paypal has implemented a new security feature for buyers: Paypal will withhold your funds until you ship the item and provide a tracking number to this link. I called paypal and they said the email was a fraud, they said it was a new sophisticated type of email fraud coming out of Nigeria, which is the email fraud capitol of the world. Good thing I read the fine print!
