How is it possible to leave negative feedback for a dishonest buyer when the set up of the feedback page does not allow this anymore. In this particular case there are several negative comments from sellers who have been stung - not paid, no response to communication etc...but they can only submit their comments with the Positive button so the buyer who is causing all the trouble ends up with 100% positive feedback. This is a terrible situation for sellers' integrity and many have been affected and it is not a true reflection of a situation.

Ebay is all for the buyer and protecting the buyer and does not allow negs to be left for buyers
Sadly, many people choose to foolishly leave a green dot with a neg comment, which is not only against ebay rules, but as you say, the scammer keeps their 100% record
I am hoping all these people have open a non payment dispute against the time wasting scammers so they can get their fees back, and then added the scammers to their blocked bidders list
And I totally agree, sellers SHOULD be able to leave honest red dots for these people, regardless of strikes and other so-called 'punishments' but it won't happen because ebay is too concerned with protecting these 'people'

Does not allow it anymore? How much of your 9 years have you been able to?
From memory the option went away before I joined in 2009. If it has taken you this long to realise, it can't really be a problem.
Just give them a strike and block them.

the reality is though, how often do you get to view a buyer's feedback before they buy from you?
i've found that even buyers who have been painful for other people have sometimes been extremely pleasant for me. your best indication of a buyer with the system being how it is, is looking at the feedback they have left for others.

There should be a word that is not in common use that could be put in positive feedback to alert sellers looking
at it when a problem arises that tells them this buyer should not be given benefit of the doubt.
Problem is the bad sellers would use it as payback just like the old negative feedback was abused.
Example >> Thanks for buying you are Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!!

Some buyers can be a pain and non paying bidders are probably the least of it, it can be buyers who create trouble by making false claims after a purchase & getting full refunds, leaving a seller out of pocket.
Sure, you'd like to leave them a neg but you can only work in the system that exists and that option hasn't been around for years.
Carry through with a non payment strike for those who bid but never pay. Set up your blocks so those with previous strikes can no longer buy from you. If enough sellers do that, it will start to have an impact on those bidders, you'll cramp their style and they won't be able to buy when they want to. That's what you want-a real consequence, because they probably wouldn't take much notice of feedback anyway.
On no account give them a green dot-keep their score low by giving no feedback at all. A green dot with neg comments is just playing into their hands and making them look good at first glance.

That neutral was given to you as a seller, not as a buyer....................
