Ebay: “no longer a registered user” how does this happen?

I got a beef with a seller who now is “no longer a registered user.” The guy got a coupla negs that screwed up his percentage, and I figure he got a new ID.

But, for his old ID, how does one become “unregistered.” And is there any way to track down this turkey and hound him till hell freezes over?

More than likely yes (due to the negatives you refer to). If you get three non pays you are suspended. Also if there is any suspicion of fraud.

From EBay:

Not a Registered User
A user's status may be indicated as Not a Registered User for several reasons:
If a user requests to be unregistered from eBay.
If a user is suspended from using eBay. While suspensions are rare, eBay reserves the right to suspend users at our discretion. In most cases, we do so as a result of an eBay site rule violation or violation of the User Agreement. If you have any question about eBay's terms and conditions, see our User Agreement or review policies of our SafeHarbor Team.
If you see the words, “Not a Registered User” next to an eBay member’s User ID, this means that this person unregistered from eBay after the listing closed. Because only registered eBay members can participate on eBay, you are not obligated to buy or sell from this person.

When a user's status is changed to Not a Registered User, all feedback left by this user remains unaltered. Prior to 1999 however, as noted in some profiles, feedback was converted to neutral when a user became no longer registered.

Well, he got his negs as a seller. A third neg was withdrawn (I found out from the buyer that they worked out a deal to replace crappy bootlegs with less crappy ones.)

I’m going with the fantasy that someone dropped a dime on him for selling boots and they banned him. I can get a warm and fuzzy feeling over that.

Of course, having friends at work dummy up accounts and bid on his auctions was would have been fun, too.

Another way to be unregistered is if you never pay your eBay bills. Then there's a possibility that they were caught fucking an eBay exec's kid.

Yeah, he can "unregister" himself, alright.

However, I prefer the "F" word in this case.
