Has eBay shot itself????
Posted by thirdrail1 on Friday, November 16, 2001 9:20 PM
Have any of you browsed for model railroad items on eBay today? Some programming genius has really messed up the page layout so that every item is crammed on the right hand side of the page. It is VERY hard to read. There are hundreds of gripes on eBay already, but a few more would not hurt. Maybe if it hit them in the price of their stock they would listen, so tell your broker, too, if you're lucky enough to need one.

Most brokers don't give a d--- about trains. Unfortunately,train revenues make up an insignificant amount of the gross revenues. Three things drive the price, earnings, earnings & earnings. and train revenues at best are negligible.
It's the high end stuff, antiques,coins, collectables,computers, not choo choos. Any broker/modelers out there??

It's not just the train people that are griping, it's everyone. They WILL run off business.

Gregg, perhaps the word is out on the street. Go to
www.yahoo.com click on Finance Quotes, then go to
symbol box and type in ebay, then in the right box,
basic, scroll down to detail, click and then back to
the GET box & click. Above where the price pops up
click on the word Msgs and the message board pops up. Click on #173942. You are not alone with complaints.
