What is this? More nonsense direct from the eBay Dept of Spin?

Fraud is endemic on eBay "nominal-start" auctions ...

If you try to buy anything at a “nominal-start” auction on any eBay website, you need to take great care ...

Shill bidding fraud by professional sellers on eBay “nominal-start” auctions is demonstrably endemic; wherever you see bidders bidding early and often on such auctions they will most likely be sellers' shills, and eBay Inc. is demonstrably the greatest knowing and calculated enabler and aider and abettor of such fraud on consumers that the world is ever likely to know. And, only the most naïve may believe that there will not be a trickle down effect of like criminal activity to other eBay operations ...

Having now further anonymised buyers’ IDs in its Feedback Forum, the only thing that surprises me about eBay—this lazy, greedy, utterly unscrupulous, criminal operator—is that they have not yet summoned up the gall to even further obscure all this endemic shill bidding fraud—that it knowingly facilitates—by converting its auctions wholly to its optional, devious, seller-selected, "private listing" format, or by changing bidding IDs to "Bidder 1", "Bidder 2", "Bidder 3", etc, as they initially were going to do/did when Johnny Ho first introduced the additional layer of anonymity for (shill) bidders in 2008, nor have they yet ceased to publish the details of "completed" listings, a post-sale analysis of which, with some effort, can clearly demonstrate this endemic fraud, and eBay's calculated facilitation thereof, on the consumers of the world ...

What a travesty of justice it is that apparently the US DOJ, nor any other regulatory authority, will do anything to even stop this endemic ongoing auction fraud, let alone prosecute eBay and its knowing executives, for the calculated facilitation of such rampant fraud on consumers ...

eBay Inc, where the incompetent mingle with the malevolent and the criminal …
