EBAY hasn't had an original idea since Eisenhower was still in office
PATHETIC that the only way they can pop this stock is to rumor a spinoff of the only bright idea they NEVER had but had to BUY in the first place - PAYPAL. EBAY Has lost sight of their core business - the universal garage sale. Simple improvements, such as the ability to sort search results by SELLER, never happen no matter how much you beg. Why should they? It is an unstoppable monopoly after all, right? That's what the Romans thought, too.
I will reply to your narrow-minded post only in the hopes that many broad minded individuals will read it. The reason I would like to sort search results be seller is to facilitate the ability to exclude those sellers who list tons of useless items which essentially make an unfiltered search for something like "DOLL" utterly useless. To expand a bit further, EBAY could solve their biggest shortcoming very easily by adding ONE SIMPLE RULE - sellers who list more than 100 items a month and have 50% or more of their listings go unsold get BANNED. Period. The days of searching for needles in the EBAY haystacks would be over.
