eBay adds some new features. Check out your announcements

Posted Sunday, September 5, 2010, at 11:15 AM

Listing Analytics application launches. You need to check these and other analytic tools. To me they are both thought provoking as well as informative.

Easier "My Messages" program. The system was not as easy as other e-mail programs in the past so I look forward to this adjustment.

Your shipping options and estimated delivery will be displayed at the top of the item page and at checkout. Shipping services will also be classified under four industry-standard terms--Economy, Standard, Expedited or One-day.

The term eBay is searched by many and the last two are folks who search to insert "copy and pasted" comments in all the forums or blogs they can find that mention eBay.

Search PhillipCohen and you will find this exact entry in many different blogs, regardless of the original comment. Kalvindale does not even specialize in eBay.

These persons may have a huge gripe against eBay, are promoting their name for search engine relavence or have way too much time on their hands.

I doubt that they will be back to respond but I have invited response before so I will invite again, if you would like to discuss the original comments. If not, I will be happy to wait a long time for your next return.

How can an established, publicly listed, commercial entity, supposedly making so much money, never pay stockholders a dividend? It appears that the only people presently making any money out of eBay are the senior managing executives, and even they have been recently selling their eBay stock: eBay's Chief Headless Turkey and Bain & Co shill, John Donahoe, is dribbling his eBay stock sales out on a monthly basis.

eBay's many problems are hardly worth discussing any more. Clearly, the headless turkeys have taken over the eBay farmyard and in particular since the sociopath, John Donahoe, has been given a key to the larger "disabled" cubicle in the executive wash room, eBay has every quarter, in relative terms, been flushed further and further down the toilet.

Since April Fools Day (how apt!) and the dumping of "store" items into core, eBay's new Utah data center appears to have been effectively crippled or, if it is functioning as planned, it's a very strange plan. Regardless, it would appear that for many users the eBay whale is high and dry on a beach somewhere, has died, and is now starting to stink. I suspect that eBay is now generating more revenue from re-listing fees, for items that remain unsold, than from any other of their fees.
