    Nightclubs have drink specials and promotions to get girls in the door. They need to try to get girls there. They don't need to try to get guys there. Guys will always go places where there are a lot of girls. Same with Ebay (and any other business). They need to try to get buyers. They don't need to try to get sellers. Sellers will always be where there are buyers. It makes good business sense to treat the buyers wonderful. Even too wonderful in some cases because it is so important to keep buyers happy. Remember that saying "the customer is always right"? Take a moment and think about why that saying was created.

    I don't want to be rude if you are a seller but I would like to be blunt. Ebay will always treat the buyers better and take their side because it makes good business sense. A buyer needs to have confidence, reassurances and guarantees to buy something they cant put their hands on first. They want to know Ebay is on their side. And because 99% of buyers are normal people looking for real goods and not scam artists, there will always be sellers trying to make money off them.

    Unless you are going to muck around loading your money onto a pre-paid Visa/MasterCard debit card, to make any use of Visa or MasterCard you need an account with a real bank, and Citigroup is a real bank ...

    Next you will be trying to tell us that eBay's "PreyPal" is the "most loved and safest way to pay" ...

    Too silly for words ...

    And what does the "smart money" on Wall Street think about the opinions of the Ho—the man at the helm of eBay, now in the seventh year of his three-year turnaround of eBay? Well, in August 2007, shortly before the Ho became CEO, the share prices of both eBay and Amazon were ~$40; today, eBay is ~$52; Amazon is ~$385 …

    Now, seriously, what more needs to be said, other than …
