Perhaps the tone for eToys' imminent farewell from e-commerce was set
in February, when the online retailer specifically warned investors
that its own stock was "worthless."


Forget about defiant last words. Forget about "if only" or "should have" disclaimers.
Instead of going out with a bang, eToys is going out with a barely audible sputter.
The story of eToys is an important fable for the e-commerce industry -- a
fable without a happy ending.
