With their customer service and seller's pitiful results long known to be in the toilet, I personally do not think ebay will fair very well without Paypal and both are on kind of shaky ground right now. With all the countless possible ways to sell items, without charge backs and fraudulent returns that allow "buyers" to get their cash back AND keep your item, and all the severe competition from foreign counterfeits, why do people even want to sell on ebay, and without ebay what's the use of Paypal? There are also many far better ways to transact your business without worrying about having your accounts frozen and you money locked up while a "buyer" reams you. But the split here sure was a great scam for insiders, people with a little logical knowledge and people like Alumni, who have an insider pal who signals when north becomes south. Of course, money is money and we don't mind riding ebay's fraud to our benefit, but one does need to know when to get out and not become the typical bagholder, who of course is the last real remaining "asset" ebay actually has. If you think customer happiness is the reason ebay stock acts like it does there is a bridge in Brooklyn looking for a buyer like you. As our great mentor used to say "And that's the way it is". Technically, it's much worse than that. Isn't it "nice" there is no SEC and ebay can do what it wants to its investors?
True on some levels King, but in ways they're not fully informing the American people about, things are very busy and moving fast: The markets welled so huge because The Fed just kept pumping in endless liquidity and hedged the big boy's possible losses, but that sure couldn't continue. China is going to peg its Yuan to gold, which will probably be the new world's reserve currency, which will be the end of the US petro dollar so the US is busy not only heating up threats and acts of war on Russia and China to stop them, but is salting away giant stockpiles of weaponry right here in the heartland for when that crash happens. Things are slow in some regards but really fast changes in many dangerous areas.

It's amazing they got away with yet another pump on this ridiculously ruined "stock". Ebay really can't give its endgame last believing longs much more than a head fake temporary blip, before it yanks the rug out from under them. How does it get away with that again and again? One day, and hopefully soon, ebay will look up and the only people who still believe in it will be our loser board trolls, and they don't have a penny to invest. Ebay has made its bed and all it does is LIE in it. A game far older than 3 card Monte, and twice as futile.
Ebay is pumping to beat the band today on no real news, but in the long run its beating its own investors as people are catching on to ebay's games and noticing the pattern of endless pump and dumps never really benefits the last of the true believers. Ebay knows the last money it has is mining its own sellers and long investors. It's the Bain blueprint. Amazing they have gotten away with this scam for so long. PS: If you think the gaggle of board trolls here made a penny altogether on this, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
It's important that the right and proper people profit and 'team' is left publicly holding their soiled Depends tm.
Yes, it's the trials of life, in which Alumni prosecutes the guilty and 'team' bawls and is dragged crying out of the courtroom. The intelligent succeed. The ignorant spin in endless circles. Witnessed time and time again. I'm very happy riding the pump and shorting it hard. Easy money. Too easy!
Like a glove. God, in HIS infinite mercy shows Alumni the proper path, while casting 'team' to the curb. Again. Well isn't that special? Now back to my 5 day weekends. The rich have no use for actual work or posting.
Hey real professor. I missed you when you posted this, and generally miss your daily missives. As you have probably noticed, you still completely own this place. Alumni is getting quieter as ebay is totally fleeing $60 (as we predicted) and is totally lining our already cash heavy pockets, thanks to the Authentic Doctor Clarify Playbook. There is just little reason to try to explain the utterly obvious to this board of predominantly beaten bag holders and broke board troll chatter boxes. The handful of informed already know the facts: ebay is the Pet Rock of the 'ought teens'. At least when the Pet Rock fad broke, one was left with a possibly useful rock.
Keep playing your 'all one poster' fictions old daughter snitch. I think even your other IDs have lost all respect for a life long loser like you John Osborne (ebay america) and ebay's failing z50com and VW. You will have a very painful eternity to sort out your facts from fictions. Enjoy that.
Jeez, I hate being right all the time... Actually I love it, but my 4 day weekends and bank account loves it even more. Anyone who actually thought ebay would stay at $60 (touched $61 until team destroyed that) was just a fool. The real money, the ONLY money in ebay is riding up with the manipulation then shorting the dumps. It has been that way a long while, and that's why the real Doctor Clarify's Playbook has been such a gift to HIM and HIS pals. It is no investor's fault that ebay is a manipulated fraud "stock". It's just your duty to surf these waves and profit.
If Alumni can do this again and again and enjoy flush bank accounts, happy families and endless leisure time, then certainly 'team' is allowed to publicly berate investors with their useless pumping lies and Ripples based sicknesses, while staying broke and ruining their families and credibility. Alumni is just adults, team is simply children. But keep them away from children, if you know what I mean, and I think you do. The Boy Scouts Of America sure do. They sure do. Yawn. Here is some intelligent discourse, now back to sailing.
I don't often approve of Alumni's actions but can't argue against the results. The authentic Doctor Clarify, in his prescient and accurate Playbook, taught us to follow and ride up the manipulated pumping, and out little inside birdie tells us when to get those double profits of shorting into yet another dump! My weekend sailing is about to begin. Work hard trolls. We all see you can do nothing against the Alumni/Office machine. Tricks are for you old kids. Money is for adults.
Using the always accurate real authentic Doctor Clarify Playbook (not that illiterate 'tard dancing in his used undies these days) it's too easy to make money riding ebay's manipulated pumps, and then shorting it as the insiders dump it. No one can make money on this fraud stock the normal buy and hold way, but once you steal like the big boys do, everyday is Christmas! It's the only way to treat a fraud stock whose actual value is maybe $20. The big boys have no SEC rules, why should you play by them? The whole point of investing is to get rich and successful. No one wants to end up a broke daughter snitching board troll like Sullied Johnie.
Ebay is quite the failed stock. The only way it has made any money for years is by endlessly lying, and then pumping and dumping. Spreading rumors, ripping off its sellers and its investors. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. All this endless manipulated pumping and dumping never ever makes money for most of you investors, only for few connected insiders, and the intelligent shorts with great timing. Meanwhile, this board is subjected to the endless idiocy of the Ripples crowd, willing to distract your attention, and somehow doing so for free. Gee, any loser would want a percentage of the millions of dollars ebay shucks out of its own investors! Now, just observe as many non-investors will retort and reply here in an idiotic and make my point for me.
Good morning real professor. Great to see you're alive and well. Always good to hear your wisdom. No one here above the mental age of 5 has any trouble picking out the real professor over the illiterate caterwauling fakes. You sure have left 'team' a puddle. Hope the janitor comes along fast.
It must be sad for longs to see year after year after year ebay appears to gain a little, only for very predictable dumps to be called, which puts all those gains into insider management pockets. Ebay has little to no real value, little to know real customer service, and frankly its buyers and believers are drying up fast. This stock has always been a joke, and if there was SEC, it long would have some top management in jail. Must give longs a "special feeling" to invest in such an ongoing criminal enterprise. Ebay is sure not hiding its scam nature well. Alumni keeps close tabs on such a predictable money making machine to ride the gains and short the crashes. That's all this "stock" is good for. Oh well, off to my extended weekend.
Already sensed the sagging. Made my bet from my boat. Let the Friday bloodbath begin and chock it up to yet another failed manipulated pump and dump. Ebay management (and their board trolls) should be in prison. They have shown that time and again. Would the last ebay delusional long please turn out the lights....
Alumni laughed all the way to the bank when we heard ebay was going to lay off thousands of employees, the backbone of their already atrocious customer service, for a stock pumping gain. Knowing America' s long rigged short sighted casino markets, we were happy to ride (yet another) fake gain, and turn around quickly to short this stock pig like the bacon it is destined to be. What a dumb move! Just more of the completely backackwards mindless that's already made ebay such a delightful short. Customers complain about little customer service to let's lay them all off and hope people forget how we reamed them. Thanks for the money (again) ebay. You could not have made a dumber move if HE demanded it. Cash for the intelligent! Again!
Does this help ebay? Or Yahoo? Does John Osborne, ebay's z50com and VW, and our sick 13 year daily board troll have no posting rules like the rest of us, and yahoo doesn't care what happens to its pet loser? Why would John Osborne z50com be using ebay information to publicly show ebay and Yahoo have no security and like to endanger people? Odd. Not going to end well for you is it John?
Yes, ebay is crashing and burning all according to the authentic Doctor Clarify's Playbook. Incredible levels of profit going into already rich Alumni's bank accounts. This is all as it should be. Sweet justice for the worthy and intelligent.
