non-Ibanez ebay auctions in the "Ibanez" category

Surfing ebay this afternoon i've noticed that one particular seller, rockersguitars2011 has seemingly managed to get a whole load of vintage gear into the filtered category for Ibanez guitars...

Being realistic, is this something that should be reported as spamming? I mean, if you're looking for an Ibanez, you wouldn't expect to see an advert for a $25,000 vintage strat come up would you.

Or am I just not using ebay correctly?

If it is, I think I might take half an hour out of my day to report a half dozen auctions

Re: non-Ibanez ebay auctions in the "Ibanez" category

I've already done it before. I had a Jackson Soloist ad up that got removed from the Ibanez section. I contacted ebay and they told me it was in the wrong category, fair enough. I went back and counted all the ads with no relevance to Ibanez at all in the filtered results just for 'electric guitars'. There were easily about 100 ads out of the usual 600-700, maybe more. I contacted ebay who told me to report them. I did a few and they never got removed. It's all money to them, and if they remove an ad they usually refund you so it makes sense for them to keep them up. Sucks, there was a whole pile of brass instruments in that section when I looked a while back.
