I'll tell you what doesn't work. Your Sell Messages for over a year now, since eBay was a $60. Stock, under several different but similar "ID"s.
I'm a eBay Stockholder, every share I own was Up $51.73 in 2004, how much are you Up writing your silly stupid sell messages?
I also use eBay to buy & sell items. Not every item I put up for auction gets bids, some items I put up only get one or two bids, thereby not a profitable transaction, but a good number of items I post for auction are very very profitable. Overall, I'm well ahead.
I'll tell you something else smarty pants, its the system, how easy it is to work with, how faultless eBay's program is, and all the choices. I sold over 200 items last year, and only one no pay! It works, and it works easily and faultlessly and the people you deal with are honest, pay for what they are the winning bidder on, and material flows around from seller to buyer on a daily basis.
Knock eBay all you want, your the one that's missing out, jerk!
