So the solution there is either to cut some sellers' auctions out of the results or for the buyer to narrow down what they're looking for by using a search.
If you don't know what you're specifically looking for then nobody can help you until you figure it out. Then there are other customers who will know to search within that category for "easter" "mold" and "sucker".
I'm not trying to be argumentative, really! I just don't understand. I can see how browsing thousands of listings could be daunting but that's not really eBay's problem -- it's the sellers' problem because the customer isn't looking for something specific (or is but doesn't know how to search for it).
I guess the point is moot, though, because the "too many results" claim has to do with searching and not browsing anyhow.
