eBay CEO Meg Whitman Blogs

By: Ina Steiner

The Toronto Star newspaper says Meg blogs. In referring to Jordan Banks, Managing Director of eBay Canada, the paper says:

Banks of eBay Canada said blogs now account for 40 per cent of his daily media consumption. EBay chief executive officer Meg Whitman writes a blog for internal use that helps employees keep up to date with her life and current thinking, Banks said.

What is Meg's current thinking, I wonder. (Damn Skype, I should have bought YouTube, it's a bargain at $1.65 billion.)

Current thinking!!!! I doubt very much that she can think, as I see very little evidence of it on eBay, unless it's, "I think we won't bother about the scams and fraud"

Thinking? "Whew, dodged a bullet on that last quarter, what sort of rabbit can I pull out of my arse for the first quarter of 2007, though?!"

whoopdeedoo, even more of a reason to be pissed at the grossly indequate, clunker blogs they gave us ebayers. Fred Flintstone has a better blog. Just proves how social interaction is only to keep you logged into ebay as a user session to pitch to their advertisers. Yeah, I bet your employees just love you talking about a couple million being a deal.  :::eyeroll:::

Why not invite her to share some of her blogging 'wisdom' more publicly - on AuctionBytes perhaps? She would attract plenty of constructive comment I'm sure!

We will see though very soon eBay will start positioning itself better in the Asian market. They cannot accept the fact that Yahoo! is ahead of them. And they will spend some serious money.

Actually all I want to find out is an email address to report to EBay the outrageous things Ebay in Brazil ("Mercadolivre") is doing, specially regarding to the terms agreed - in Brazil you do break all the items of the agreement and we can't do anything but either get in touch with you or hire a lawyer and pay for a battle. If I Have to I will, but I thought you should know ebay in brazil in losing credibility - even the huge amount of money being spent in advertisements these last months won't solve the real problem, i.e., whoever runs the company in Brazil. Thank you.

I recently had a friend whose niece went missing and my first thought was Ebay so I searched for a link to post an amber Alert but did not find one. Then I quickly posted an auction to get her face and info out there quickly. I then emailed the government comittee of ebay several times apealing to their sense of civic duty.I requested a reply to a request for an amber alert on ebays front page and also requested my auction to be free. I relisted twice: Ebay Item number: 130184894560 Ebay Item number: 130182720244  Ebay Item number: 130179883236 The only reply I got was an invoice of their intentions to take the fees from my paypal account. Ebay Invoice Number:  123107-19186710018

I hope someone at ebay sees this and realizes that they do have a cicic duty to the missing and exploited children to post Amber Alerts on their front page.

I also hope the cheap bastards refund my fees.

How can meg whitman run california when she can not clean up her ebay sites. Self slabbers have been ripping of ebay buyers for years. Especially INTERNATIONAL NUMISMATIC BUREAU. inb has over 500 negative feedbacks in 6 months and 100s of neutral feedbacks, if it were a small fish such as myself I would be barred from selling at the very least. This self slabbers has been selling coins as MS 70 that are no better than pocket change, further more how many old coins can you find in jars and cigar boxes? Ebay keeps this seller, in my opinion, because he moves thousands of coins a month through ebay, generating profit for ebay. Why get rid of a cash cow. If this is what California is in for, do we really want it? Meg Whitman clean up ebay before you try to run millions of peoples lives in the real world, your not dealing with cyber space when you run governor of my great state.

Meg Whitman: Will the real Meg Whitman please stand up?

She has shitty political views; Anti-Gay Marriage; anti-medical cannabis; she pissed off a lot of EBay sellers making ''EBay better''.  She should run for the mayor of Boise, ID with Sarah Palin as her secretary. She is against city rights and hates immigrants (although doesn't mind them as domestic servants or eating the fruits of their labors).  CA blue-why?  Because we needed the money-Yes We Can!  Meg You Can’t.  Go back to ruining EBay please.

IT MUST BE YOUR ALLOWING EBAY USER JAYANDMARIE TO USE EBAY USER JIMMY_JAM_SLAM AND A FEW OTHER EBAY ID'S TO RATE OTHER
SELLERS POORLY AND BID UP THEIR OWN AUCTIONS. YOU HAVE ALLOWED THESE MEMBERS TO GET OTHER SELLERS KICKED OFF EBAY
DO TO THEIR BEING RATED LOW AND THEN YOU CHARGE THEM FOR RETURNED ITEMS THESE EBAYERS NEVER WANTED TO BEGIN WITH . ITS BEING
REPORTED WITH PROOF ALL OVER THE NET ... SO MAYBE ONE DAY EBAY WILL SINK WITH THERE SLIMEBALLS AND FRAUD SELLERS JAYANDMARIE !!
