This week's decision by eBay (Nasdaq: EBAY) to enforce a prohibition on offline deals between members has angered many users, sparking allegations that the Internet auction giant's stated goal of protecting its customers is disingenuous.

It has long been the official policy of eBay to prohibit members from arranging deals outside the confines of cyberspace, but company spokesman Henry Gomez told the E-Commerce Times that eBay announced its intention to enforce the policy after receiving complaints from members.

Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
