Doc previously blogged about an eBay member that gave countless hours daily helping other eBay members with problem transactions and providing links and quoting eBay policy for whatever the situation might have been.
You see, eBay used to be about community and members helping other members. But since the John Donahoe regime took over Meg Whitmans CEO position everything has been abruptly disrupted.
It appears eBay no longer want’s community member help, and if the regime thinks those members are costing IT MONEY in lost Final Value Fees it will silently silence them. Of course this is all done by LIE WORLD eBay’s partner in censorship who actually does the dirty work behind the scenes.
I received an email from her saying she outed a seller that used a buying ID and filed complaints with eBay to get the item free and then sold it on her selling id.
Whether you expose fraud that’s happening on eBay or provide links to apply for a FVF eBay can’t stand it, and soon silences the poster. The old saying “Shooting The Messenger” comes to mind here!
I know this person personally and can vouch for her credibility and eBay community abilities. She was the best UNPAID eBay Support that any company could ask for.
She is also a Cancer Survivor and and is a Disabled American that spent a good 6 hours daily 7 days a week cruising eBay’s community discussion boards looking for other eBay community members that needed help.
Recently a hurricane caused some major damage to her state and also cost her money in lost food from being out of power for several days. We all chipped in and took up a collection for her. One member even donated a generator to power her refrige and medical device necessary if another power outage should occur.
This is what eBay used to be all about. eBay used to be a thriving community of people that believed in the principals Pierre Odimyer founded eBay on. Since John Donahoe took over running eBay corp the community principles has been chiseled away, member by member.
This situation leaves eBay without another good community member helping others. And as most everyone that buys and sells knows, eBay Corp Support Sucks!
Anyway.. Here is the pulled topic that was on eBay’s Motors Discussion board, last updated at 7:30 PM EST.
