    ^^ agreed. It's like there's a saboteur at the helm.

    I'm not looking forward to the additional momentum this particular announcement will provide to the overall economic slide.

    Well, eBay has gotten as much as $15K or more a year out me in fees but hasn't for the past year and there are thousands like me who have abandoned that sinnking ship.

    lets see what sucks to be a seller
    1. their fees
    2. their feedback "wtf feedback if only the buyer can leave negative feedback ?
    3. there fuck up terms "on what you can sell and can't eg. Digital media and so on"
    4. all the fake buyer that buy your shit and don't pay and then you have to go throw that
    sucky process for "none paying bidder"

    Here my feedback for ebay "you suck!!!!"

    Hmmmm. Kind of ironic I'd say. Looks like ebizzle may have gotten a little too big for their own britches. First they dump hundreds of their online affiliates and now they are looking to cut their workforce due to a lesser profit margin. Maybe they should have spent a little less time gobbling up the competition and implementing stringent rules.

    I just think stuff like this is all planned way in advance. I don't think they're going down by accident.

    What I hate worse is when the AssWipes who actually make the f-ed up decisions (which kill a company's profits) get to skip away scott-free while the worker bees who warned them "This ain't gonna work..." are given the axe.

    Maybe they are planning on it not working because it makes the AssWipes more money. The warnings fall on deaf ears if there's more money involved for the AssWipe if failure is imminent.

    That is a pretty interesting theory/view. Short of sounding like a conspiracy, what if they have induced failure purposefully in order to scrap the model that no longer works. They can then reinvest into a similar company that reflects the ideals of ebizzle before it became saturated and corrupt. They can then of course puppeteer this new company without the knowledge of the public.

    Nice, I love conspiracy theories. I bet Google is involved somehow and is waiting in the wings to "save the day"... Praise Google Gawd!

    Not a bad theory, IMO. Look at the exit packages for the CEOs & directors of Fanny & Freddie. Privatized profit & socialized loss.

    I read yesterday that those packages were sewn up prior to end of Q4 2008 (after end of fiscal 2008).

    I wonder if the heads of Google and Ebay have tables at Bilderberg and Bohemian Grove?

    EDIT: Oops answered part of my own question...

    What is this world coming to...

    EDIT: Not only was Google represented at the latest Bilderberg meeting, but so was Paypal/Ebay...
