It must be true! Watch out what you wish for

I know, it is not good grammar to end with a preposition, but..... it feels right.

Anyway, I have been on a campaign to stop some particularly annoying spam. Well, I may have overdone it. My cell phone is not receiving ANY e-mails, not just spam.

Anyone else notice an almost eerie silence from the internet?

Sales are starting to come back. Google kicked in some new analytics and search algorithms and I think it kicked us too!

Maybe the internet in general is being attacked, but I have not heard of anything, YET.

My cell phone e-mail suddenly broke loose this morning. Several hundred showed up and my notification ding would not stop for about 10 minutes. Maybe it was that enema I gave it.

I can tell you that the employment websites have been very bad the last two weeks and this week also. Even with the bad press, it was ok until a couple weeks ago.

Someone mentioned checking the Google search and where we used to on the front page for our product line, we can not find anyone from eBay on the first 8 pages.

Hmmm. Did someone tick off Google?

I agree. Even when the economy was getting such bad press (nothing personal T-G) we did not have a shut-off like we are seeing this week.

The last two weeks have been very slow for me as well, with last week being the slowest, in both quantity and quality of sales, for several years. Strange, I have never noticed a lull in June before.

Come to think of it, our eBay sales have suddenly dried up to a trickle too. Strange feeling.
