Rarely has there been a day that Google’s safe browsing report has not found some form of Malware or Exploit on eBay.com. Complaining on eBay’s forums does not help, it just inviting abuse from the regular forum posters.
eBay subs out their forums and moderation to a company called liveworld.com. Liveworld in turn hires message board savvy people to act as moderators policing the community forums. There is a good chance that many of these posters are “shills” working undercover as a private individual. Often also referred to as Sock Puppets.
Maybe one of these days eBay will quit trying to take over Amazon’s business and pay attention to their own customers and website. It’s all about Trust and Community that once made eBay the worlds largest marketplace.
