Wondering how EBAY makes money? By outages of course! They first hype the greater fools and dump their stocks to them. Then they load up puts and then the last part of the trick comes: the site goes out! Who cares about the bidders and sellers. The site is about sucking money from public in any way possible, this is business. And when EBAY's stock prices drop after the outage they sell their puts. Yes, this is the trick! Where does the money go? Not to shareholders of obviously, they are suckers.
