Bound to happen. Kind of surprised they did it prior to the holiday season, when they do well (like everyone else). Now, for the first time, we may actually see this thing reach 60...too bad it's not over anything good eBay has done.

Who's going to overthrow them?
Definitely a pump. This is a horrible idea if it's true. Ebay is not going to be as competitive without Paypal.
I wish it was true. Perhaps focus can be brought back to the marketplace, instead of ripping off sellers and using that money to fund Paypal.
