So a bunch of shady sellers get tossed and throw a hissy fit trying to shame ebay? F off, scammers.

WRONG! Read this: From the poster StockMiser on a PowerSellersUnite discussion board: "Investigative journalism" idea has been thrown about for years.
This is why is hasn't happened:
1 - Although Ebay sellers are technically ebay "consumers", the media is only interested in "ordinary consumers" - which we call "buyers".
2 - Most anti-ebay stories have historically been about ebay sellers scamming buyers. Ebay sellers are almost always seen as the villains.
3 - Ebay tells the media about all the "safeguards" they have put in place to protect them. Ebay is the hero.
4 - Ebay sellers ("the villans") complaining that ebay ("the hero") is being unfair because the rules are too strict gets a "ahh, the poor stay-at-home profiteer scammers are upset" reaction from the media.
The last time I can remember a seller-initiated media campaign resulted in no big story, but a nice little story (probably ebay-fed) about some buyers scammed by some sellers, and how ebay helped them out.
The morale, IMHO, is the media is NOT a friend, and never has been a friend, of the ebay seller. THe end result of all these stories is "Ebay really needs to keep a better eye on those evil sellers, and if they don't, we need stricter laws".
Ebay is always painted as the enabler of stay-at-home moms and dads, creative crafters, and entrepreneur housewives. Anyone having a problem with Ebay is always a scamming lying thief that needs to be kicked off ebay.
A seller purge? KUDOS to Ebay, the protector of the Consumer, Hero of the public good. Damn, they need a tax break!
Do you REALLY want to alert the media?"
