Are we talking about the same subject???
People need to take their money elsewhere. Ebay is just a hedge fund (except you atleast have a 50-50 chance of getting something) as opposed to a certificate that says "you own gold".
People kept tossing money into the internet bubble and now you can't escape it. The internet has gone the way of television and the radio. (Looks at ads on AO with anger). Stay away from online billing and purchases. Its not only dangerous but its a complete disservice to the internet at large.
