"We were hogging all their bandwidth," they said as they demanded smaller photos or they would end our listings.
There were weeks and weeks of a mad rush

Wrong! I just received my first notice: 4 items ended, photo size not large enough. 300 Photos to re-size in 4 days.
Something churned in my stomach when I got that message. And suddenly, I realized it might be time to look for some place else to sell that isn't quite so hard to please--
