So what really makes people so damned passionate about eBay and PayPal? It's a marketplace, people use it. There's some crooks and ways to deal with them. But if you dare to point out that there are mechanisms to report shills, to pull out of shilled auctions, and to recognize shills in the first place, somehow it gets people all worked up. What's up with that?
Initially I figured it's the typical "hate the successful e-business" thing, but it seems to be bigger than that. Any thoughts?
