    Safari is not fully compatible with the Javascripting on Ebay. Turn off javascript and it will be faster.

    Ebay is down a lot more than it used to be. It was down for hours when one my high dollar auctions ended, which really pissed me off. The next morning I looked to see if the site was up yet and found that they extended my auction another day, without a single comment or email to explain why.

    I had to answer 10 emails myself, from bidders wondering why the auction end date had changed. It looked fishy to them since my item sold for over $3K. Ebay's site is full of glitches and slow downs. Stupid ebay. Glad I don't rely on them as a primary source of income anymore.

    And don't even get me started about the flood of Nigerian scammers that ebay doesn't give a rat's asss about.

    Try to sell a cell phone on ebay and specify that you will ship world wide, you'll soon know what I'm talking about.

    Join the resistance.

    Sorry to hijack the thread. I'm done.
