IMO, he bought a used bike after having an opportunity to inspect it, and he can KMA. if he can't replace a spoke himself, a bike shop will do it for $12-$15 (local price, anyway), but I'd be pretty reluctant even to send that. It might be different if I'd shipped the bike without him seeing it, but he looked it over before he picked it up.
I don't buy much on ebay and I've never had a problem, but they must have an appeals procedure. Otherwise every seller would be at the mercy of the buyers: "You told me it was perfect, but it has a lot wrong with it and if you don't give me $500, I'll ruin you."
