Does someone mind summarizing what it says? I have dialup and don't want to wait 30+ minutes to download it.

it just says how ebay is bull**** like T&S, there is no such thing as buyer or sellers protection for paypal and how paypal keeps holding money to gain interest.

Does ebay have offices in most major cities like The Church of Scientology? If so, then every seller can go and stand in front of them to protest like they do for The Church of Scientology (google "Project Chanology")

wow, if i were you i would deff. watch that video, if its possible for you

it explains how ebay is getting worse and worse
the amount of people that sign up went from 43%or so to 23%
and there net income from 72% all the way down to 4%

there was also a story about a kid who bought a $1000.00 lens and he never got it and paypal never gave him any money back, even thought he bought insurance for then lens, paypal wouldnt give him the money because the seller provided ebay with a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ tracking number,

also there was also a case were a guy sold his scooter for $7600.00 and got thr money by paypal, and as soon as he got the money they limited the account > reason was unusual activity, he couldnt get his money even thought the buyer was very happy with the scooter he bought,

it also went on saying that all this negativity with customer service could lead to ebay's down fall

Although many consumers love the auctions on eBay, large cable television networks have decided to avoid them. According to the New York Times, cable networks such as Turner Networks, Discovery, Lifetime, and ESPN have all made the move to ban online trading by eBay. As a result of this move, eBay trading will essentially have no airtime to sell to advertisers. This whole idea of computerized buying and selling has raised several issues even from the beginning... such as taking the creativity out of advertising and reducing overall prices.
