Sounds like even the rats are jumping ship now. Its a sad thing when something is starting its slide to the bottom. Sort of like the titanic going down bow first. Sad indeed. However bare in mind that ebay is a big venture and it would take a lot to just kill it off. In the meantime, the one thing it has going for it is customer traffic. I for one still need the sales I generate from there as supplemental income to my websites.
