We all know what a golden goose ebay has had, but they haven't taken good care of the goose or the people who feed the goose. Since there is no communication with anyone in ebay, it relieves them from answering to anyone on a daily basis, but it also removes them from knowing what people really want or even expect. The arrogance is nearly intolerable to most who use the auction site.
