Call it a War on Hogwarts—eBay has announced it will no longer allow the sale of hexes and potions, reports the Los Angeles Times. Starting next month, the site's new guidelines also will prohibit the sale of blessings, enchantments, psychic advice, "and other metaphysical readings & services." Such transactions often end up in "issues that can be difficult to resolve," explains a spokeswoman.
But witches and warlocks needn't worry too much—more tangible items often used in rites such as crystals are still game. And those who want to sell their magic can head over to Craigslist, where postings still offer "Big Booty Spells" and "Candy Charms." ABC News rounds up some criticism of the new rules, including one user's complaint that Catholic holy water still makes the cut.
