I was both a buyer and a seller on ebay from 1998 to 2008. I objected to the radical policy changes and closed my account in August 08 and never looked back. I didn't buy and sell a ton of stuff, but I was one of the loyal customers that helped ebay rise to the success it was. Myself and many others are frankly pissed about the changes and ebay's unwillingness to listen, so we just plain quit. My biggest thing was being forced to use Paypal. I'm not interested in Paypal, I bought and sold using primarily money orders and only had 2 or 3 disputes over 10 years. I understand ebay owns the site, but I think they forget who pays the rent. ebay served me well over the years, and at one point was my only source of income. Now I can care less about what happens to the company.
eBay Corp.'s auditors have raised "substantial doubt" about the troubled company's ability to continue operations, and the company said it may have to seek bankruptcy protection if it can't execute a huge restructuring plan.
