So called dubplate on eBay

Whilst doing a general search on eBay for Sharon little’s don’t mash up creation I stumbled upon this seller who appears to be selling his own bootleg versions of in demand tunes. Has perfect feedback and although I’m not tempted to buy personally, I wondered if anybody on here had previous dealings with similar sellers? Also what are people’s thoughts on this type of selling as looking at his feedback history he’s obviously sold a fair few of these so called dubplates?!!

A friend bought a copy of the sharon little tune on a 7'' from this seller,
The sound quality is very poor, sounds like a you tube rip.
I think it is a poly vinyl press.

What exactly is poly vinyl? Is the quality inferior to "regular" vinyl?

Ugly business by these bootleggers...

What about these homemade cd comps that this seller is presumably doing good business on?

Who buys this stuff?

I dunno.
I was dismayed in Camden market, to find a reggae stall selling bootleg copies only, all the CDs were duds.
Attitude of contempt very visible too.
