    A couple of days ago I made a stupid mistake of copying someone's listing and just changing a few words here and there. Flippa has now temporarily suspended my listing, but it's not allowing me to edit the content so that I can make the listing live again.

    I sent an email to flippa saying sorry and it won't happen again bla bla bla but they just decided to ignore me and deem my question solved.

    Losing out on $19 does not bother me, but I have made over 20 auctions in the last 2 months, is it really a good business decision to screw me out of $19?

    I feel like saying screw you flippa, but I can't as only flippa has the kind of audience I require.

    Any thoughts on this?

    As much as I would like someone to write a default listing for my auctions, I did not post in this thread asking for that, but thanks anyway.

    Flippa staffs did this one time on me because a hater/loser... report my auction of "falsified earning report". I sent them a complain and they restored the auction after few days without any notice.
    So I'm with you. Screw flippa

    Just email them again, I don't see why they won't reinstate it if you change the wording.

    Sometimes you need to email support a few times until you get the response you require.

    Thanks Thomas, I gave up on them but I will try again now that you've said that.

    It's a great business decision. Flippa isn't after your $19 - we're just needing you to remember that copying someone's listing is copyright theft and in breach of the terms and conditions you agreed to when joining the marketplace ...

    If your appeal does not work out, just create a new listing. You only lose $19.
