Here are the rules in this regard...

 

1.16. Listing of Nazi related items

 

The following may not be listed:

  • Items or memorabilia displaying Nazi / Nazi-related icons, emblems and symbols, including Nazi SS, 3rd Reich and swastika.
  • Items, documentation or any matter promoting violence, hatred, racial prejudice or religious contempt.

The following items may be listed:

  • German World War II memorabilia that does not exhibit emblems, symbols or icons referring to the Nazi's (as indicated above).
  • German stamps and coins produced during the World War II period.
  • Books and documentaries detailing world history and events revolving around the World War II time period (which may exhibit imagery referencing Nazi's, the Nazi SS or the swastika).

This can be found in Bid or Buys Terms and Conditions:

I cannot understand this policy of BoB... because:

  1. it is not efficiently enforced;
  2. (Italian) Fascist and AWB items are allowed;
  3. live animals are allowed;
  4. pornography is allowed;

To me it looks like the management of BoB just hates the Nazi's, and have therefore singled them out.

 

Also, BoB management does not have a single clue as to what this ban entails... everything with a swastika is a no-no, even if it has absolutely no connection with the Nazi's. Yet there is a seller selling Waffen-SS divisional crests, but because these do not have the swastika on them, BoB "allows" it.

 

And, hilariously... the wording in the "Listing Policy" is such that items relating to Neo-Nazi's and the Fourth Reich are allowed!

 

So... why are these items not allowed?
