Half uses a bot to insure that listings conform to their standards.

I have found that the only way to beat the Bot is to _not_ put any descriptive information in the listings on any New or Like New book.

The Bot sees New and Like New books with descriptions as not being in conformance with their policies, thus a violation bringing all kinds of nasty stuff.

I went to Half to see what other seller's were doing. The majority were putting statements like "Fast shipping", "Satisfaction Guaranteed" and other policy blurbs in place of the book descriptions. A friend of mine started doing that about 9 months ago and his sales actually increased! He no longer gets nasty-grams from the Half robots either. Plus his listings remain active until sold.

Actually, a similar tag is included on all of my listings.
