Very few people are hitting “home runs” on eBay these days; and doubtless this story has been sourced directly from the eBay Dept of Spin; the fact is, the whole eBay kit and caboodle is on its way down the toilet, thanks to Johnny Ho, the “Pain From Bain”…

In utter desperation, eBay offers $15 coupons …

“Refer your friends and get rewarded
“Get up to $75 dollars when your friends list for the first time on eBay.
“You and your first five friends to list will each receive a $15 eBay coupon.
“Refer now and we will send a helpful invite to get them started.”

“Yesterday I got an invitation to earn up to $75 from Ebay. All I have to do for each $15 credit is convince a friend to list their first item on Ebay!… Every time I think these jerks have played their last card, they come up with another one. Is this a joke, eBay?... I wouldn't do it [to a friend] for $1,000 credit!”—used2luv2sell

Notwithstanding that, these days, no caring person would refer a friend to eBay, this pathetic offer indicates just how far out of touch—with the reality of the low regard in which eBay is now held in the community—are the turkeys running around in circles in the eBay executive suite. Just how desperate can anyone be to be making such a pathetic offer? If this offer of money is not a clear indication of utter desperation in the eBay executive suite—desperation resulting from all the damage that the “Pain From Bain”, Johnny Ho, has done to eBay over the past seven years—nothing is!…

This is probably also the reason why eBay has booked a charge of $3 billion in anticipation of paying U.S. taxes on the repatriation of $9 billion in retained profits that they have had salted away overseas—they now need this money to try to “buy” some petty sellers—at $15/head—to try to stem the loss of the buyers they need to try to keep happy the naïve “major brands” that they have so far managed to entice on board their rusting old scow—LOL …

Notwithstanding that the eBay Dept of Spin likes to claim a “400% increase” in eBay’s share price since the GFC, just what does the "smart money" on Wall Street think about eBay? Well, the fact is, in August 2007, prior to the GFC, when the "Pain From Bain", Johnny Ho, was already effectively in control of eBay, the share prices of eBay and Amazon were both ~$40; with eBay recently ~$51 and Amazon ~$303; clearly, Wall Street (now) considers eBay to be a "dog", and Johnny Ho to be a very poor dog handler ...

Ho, Ho, Ho, it really is long past time for you to go ...
