EBAY HAS NO COMPETITION.
Ebay is only a venue. Nothing else.
EBAY IS not A VICTIM OF THE ECONOMY.
Ebay has been MURDERED by C.E.O. John Donahoe.
Money Orders and Checks are PARAMOUNT to success.
Donahoe tried to force Force PayPal down everyone's throat.
Ebay Stock will drop to ZERO if our ability to collect Checks and Money Orders is not reinstated.
It Isn't ROCKET SCIENCE.
AGAIN : the economy HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SAD STATE OF EBAY.
Everyone who gets paid to write about ebay MUST KNOW THESE FACTS CLEARLY.
READ THIS OVER AND OVER UNTIL IT SINKS IN.

Ebay is seemingly going down the tubes- the above poster is 110%. I have an idea that might help the little guy:(That's really all of us). Start from the bottom- Ebay has a "live help" feature- and lately it seems to be available without any waiting time. What I have done, is contact live help, and incorporate in my question something like, "Maybe when the stock drops to a dollar, something will change?" Or, "never had any problems when Meg was at the helm".This will certainly create some dissention in the ranks, these low level employees surely relate their experiences to each other. Everyone is sensitive to job security.Couldn't hurt.

After 10 years I quit ebay. Ill never go back. I cant hope enough that they go under. Insane policy & arrogant employees, a perfect combination.

<br>Hope Ebay shots down.

@ Seller from Last Century :
Remember being up at 2 in the morning, either to see how much you were getting, or to place that Stealth Bid on an item you'd been stalking all week ?
Man, that was Before they came out with that Sniper Software. I think That was what started the down hill slide among other obvious things....
Those Were The Good Ole Days man.....
I can't believe it's all gone already. We were Just Starting to get in the groove. It seemed like America Finally had a Tangible Definition to it.
This was Freedom at its Very Best. "Can't get any better than this" was the Line I'd hear at the local Post Office. And was That Place CROWDED.
And UPS was going Gang Busters.
And the Excitement of waiting for the other guy to leave feedback !
It Was GREAT !!!!
(insert windy ghost town scene here).
