Submission + - Scientology given direct access to eBay database (realitybasedcommunity.net) 2

An anonymous reader writes: The Church of Scientology can delete auctions from eBay with no supervision under the VeRO program, and has used this to delete all resale of the e-meters Scientologists use. This is to stop members from buying used units from ex-members instead of buying from the official (and very expensive) source. Given Scientology's record of fraud and abuse, should eBay give them this level of trust? Will this set a precedent for other companies who want to stop the aftermarket resale of its products?
