Inconsistent AddItem Results

When I verify (VerifyAddItem(item);) an item I get a success however when I try to add an item (.AddItem(item);), I get this message: Message = "The item cannot be listed or modified. The title and/or description may contain improper words, or the listing or seller may be in violation of eBay policy." This makes no since, because if I keep trying eventually it will go through. How can I find out what is wrong and why I am getting inconsistent results?

Turns out the seller had a limit on how much he could list. Would be helpful if the error messages were more detailed and meaningful. Spent hours trying to figure this out.
