I think the new policy for Best Match when buyers search is really being overlooked and may be the crappiest thing in this whole fiasco. Sure, the buyer can change it to listing ending soonest or by price, but how many will?
This is just from the eBay glossary, but I urge those of you that don't know about it to read up on it over there. IT may be the last straw!
The Best Match feature gives buyers another way to organize Search Results helping them find items more quickly. Along with the listing keywords and other information, one of most important elements in this calculation is the historical buyer behavior on the site for similar searches.
