I'm not Mike, but what I do is go the bottom of the eBay listing page and use the"Report this item" link under the Other Options heading. I believe Misleading Title is the appropriate subtopic for reporting a ? in the title. It takes a few more clicks until getting the email sent confirmation.

E-bay UK does not have a subheading "misleading title"  under the report and item options. It is more complicated and as yet have not worked how to do it effectively.  It's OK if you are reporting a fraudulent or counterfeit item,or there is a trade mark anomaly..........has anyone here in the UK found an effective way to get listings removed when there is a "? " in the heading~?  Emmi

Er, not everyone knows exactly what theyre selling!
The odd ? question mark is not exactly a capital offence!
Ive got some wonderful bargains and super bits of glass from people who dont know their Whitefriars from their lalique!

Giv um a break!

just my opinion ;D

Hi Andy.
              i am all for giving people a break but when you email some one and you get nothing but rudeness back and then have the front to say (i hope it arrives in tact because you would be the first person to complain if it arrived broken to you) al in caps.

I then tend to think i am dealing with someone whom is not all they seem to be. i made several attempts to resolve this situation with the seller but just got abuse, there fore i have no other road to go down.
                                                                                     Regards.
                                                                                     Steve.

I have been known on occasion to put a '?' in a title. Not to mislead, only when I am 99% certain of what the item is and then in my description make sure i actually say that I think the item is x or y and give my reasons for doing so. Case in point being a ceramic figure that I knew to be what it was but the item was missing it's backstamp. It was a relatively rare piece and any collector would know it for what it was but because it had no backstamp I could not actually say it was what it was.  However I can Steve's gripe over this. I am always willing to be given information about items I list that I do not know about and am NEVER ever rude to anyone.
No retreat, No surrender.

I personally think that there is nothing wrong with a ? if you aren't sure about what you have. At least you aren't claiming something is something that it isn't. I too would never be rude if offered information and I usually start my listing by I believe this is may be a... By not putting a ? you are surely making a definitive claim.

Hi Pip.
        I have had a response from Paypal and as suggested they want a reference with regards to this vase on letter head paper and it's to be sent by Fax. is it best i email you though your site, with regards to this matter.

Steve - sure - email me at sales (at) pips-trip (dot) co (dot) uk
(replacing the at with @ and dot with .)

With regards to the question mark thing in eBay titles - I wasn't being judgmental about it, all I was doing was highlighting the fact that it's against eBay rules.  I used a question mark in a title once and had it reported and removed - so that's how I know.  Obviously, continue to use question marks in titles if you wish - just be aware that your listing could be removed if reported.
