Oh, Meg. Did you learn your doublespeak in Ebay, ignoring your eager buyers and tricking your loyal sellers?
Time for a Meg Whitman cartoon. The doll is a plus. I have been wanting to sell on ebay for AGES, even though I have bought from there many times, until a few years ago, when I got 4 negatives in a row because I complained about sellers selling fountain pens (which I use to draw, and I was in the middle of a book at the time) that were totally broken!!! Once one seller saw a neg on me, they all piled on. Infuriating, since they all LIED in their descriptions!!
But now I’m ready to sell a few things. But in the last year or so, the power all turned south, to the buyers, instead of the sellers. Now sellers can’t even give a negative to deadbeat buyers! And they get dinged for the stupidest things. And have many more fees to pay, of course. Meg, your ebay sucks. How did you screw it all up? I read that the reason you made changes was that buyers stopped coming. Well, poking sellers isn’t going to fix that problem, is it.
Anyway, the latest thing you’ve done is suck up to illegal aliens. Only in Spanish, of course, so we can’t hear what you’re saying.
