I Just Figured Out eBay's Problem.

It's So Simple! If you have 10 minutes to watch this video clip you will all see what the problem is. It is all so clear, now.

BTW, Pinky is eBay Sellers and the Brain is John Donahoe.

Left me feeling sad :-(

Funny! I did a link back to you here from the eBay Stores Board on a thread I called "eBay Attempting World Domination?"

They pulled it instantly...

There will be much censorship on eBay beginning July 1. Trust me.

Randy Smythe said...

If you really think about it, yea, it is kind of sad isn't it Pat?

Rich, wow, they pulled the thread ... that must have hit a nerve.

I would have thought Donahoe might even have laughed at it.

Randy Smythe - if they really are trying to do away with small sellers and auctions, then I really do hope I get to see them fall flat on their faces! :-(

Incidentally, I love in Yorba Linda

Hey Neighbor,

I'm not far from you then. I live over by El Dorado H.S.

PERFECT analogy.
Thanks for the much-needed humor. :D

ms.pat said...

Yep - we're neighbors...I'm near the Nixon Library LOL Small world.

'The Brain' always struck me as a young Dom Deloise or George Carlin type of guy. Sadly, Donahoe is neither...
no sense of humor, and not one Speck of 'ebay-ness'.

Sellers were ALWAYS smarter than ebay. That's howcome they could see every new fee coming, even MILES away.

Can't tell you how many times I've suggested a feature then they implemented it.

Can't tell you how many times I've used a feature and wondered, "When are they going to start CHARGING me for this?"

Ice Cream Man (icecreamman.com) recently tried to auction a sponsorship to help give away free ice cream and ebay shut it down for dubious reasons.
