Default Profanity in Emails ?

I , had two instances this week and was wondering if it would do any good to report to Ebay
1) Gentlemen used the """"real bad word""""" in a email to me it was him replying to the "Thank You for your payment " email
2) The other person used * in the middle of the ''bad word'' than called me a couple names strait up not sure if they would be profanity but you cant say them on regular tv -- he sent this through ebays email system
any advice or experience , i did nothing to either one they had been upset that one had not got their item in 4 days and the other 5 days ? thanks

I would think they are frustrated individuals that have done this before and will continue to behave that way. Sooner or later it will catch up with them both. Continue to earn your profits, and brush it off you can't predict what response EBAY will have they are so unpredictable.

OK, I hate cyberbullies. Swearing like that is doing just that,imho. BUT
take a step back and think about it. Will your account stand up to scrutiny if you send the emails on to ebay? Have you completed the transactions with
the buyers? Do you need to deal with them any more? If not, block them from bidding again on your sales. More importantly what do you hope/think ebay will do? Likely, ebay will do zilch.

Might be better for you to take a deep breath, shake your head and move on.
You know you are better than them. I would let it go. I lost my cool with such a person 18 months ago. I lost the account

i replied politely to both and told them in a nice manner that it is against ebay policy to use vulgar language - one got the item and left me a neg the other the item was just shipped tuesday ...My accounts are fine and the items were fine - i know i got a warning for using another word for " mule and that is not even really profanity....but thanks for the info .

I was physically threatened and ebay help asked me to forward the email... that was Christmas, nothing. We considered moving because the person said they know where I live and they were going to ****ing kill me. I guess it depend which bots read it... maybe ebay was too busy during christmas.

I wouldnt risk a neg or a stalker by taking action, they are common and vulgar, expletives are used by those with a poor and unimaginative grasp of language, though its tempting to say something about their mother, I would just ignore it or if you are like me, keep the leftovers from Sunday lunch in the garage for about a month and then send it to them, I promise, you will laugh everytime you think about it afterwards.
