Slowing growth rate because they're screwing everyone.

Shopping.com doesn't have the best rep either... from my affiliate friends at least..

If Ebay weren't crapping all over their sellers maybe they wouldn't have to buy out shopping.com. I just posted a simple auction that cost me $2.00. Multiple that by god knows how many listings from sellers they've either suspended all over the globe and we're talking about unheard of profit losses and yet Ebay continues to make even more money every quarter.

Slow growth? Does your name need to be Einstein to know that if you suspend 5 accounts for every 1 new accounts, you can't grow? :D
