    • You should be reading the chat room boards. It
      has been noted
      over and over that Ebay is cooking
      the auction numbers. I dare
      say, they don't want
      the shareholders to know what is going on.
      out the individual auctions as well, their hits are

    • Ebay is loosing steam.
      YHOO auction grow more
      rapidly than EBAY. Check the facts.
      Also with all
      other auction sites hitting new record everyday.
      auction business is soon saturated, then Ebay will go
      nowhere but start to loss to improving competitors.

      • Yahoo is certainly growing their auctions, but
        they are no where near ebay AND their number of
        "failed" auctions (auctions with no bids) are 3 times as
        high as ebay. Sellers won't go for this in the long
        run. The only sellers their are retail sellers trying
        to move merchandise with high initial bids.
        Everybody knows it. That's why nobody bids.

        auction sites are a joke. Everyone knows it. Ebay is not
        losing any credible market share. They are just not
        getting the bad sellers on ebay because the bad sellers
        choose yahoo so they do not have to pay anything when
        their high priced items don't get bid on.
