OMG I just have to laugh at the title of this thread. Too funny! Methinks someone needs to look up the definition of socialism.
eBay is a prime example of what happens when freedom to do anything you want in this country goes WAY too far. When a company is allowed by the government to drive thousands upon thousands of small businesses into the ground overnight that isn't socialism that elitist capitalism at it's height. eBay's freedom to make two sets of rules... one for the rich big businesses & one for the little guys... that's good old American capitalism right there. What? You guys don't like eBay having such vast freedom to interpret it's rules any way it wants & change everything overnight & damage your business?
You guys need to make up your minds.
eBay is not regulated or restrained from grinding everyone's business into the ground because of the public outcry that it's anti-American & socialist to regulate them & force them to be fair to everyone. But the moment eBay's freedom includes the freedom to squash your business... oh well... that changes everything! Once conservatives are victims my how their entire viewpoints change.
